Why You Should Surround Yourself with Healthy People


“You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” ~ Jim Roth

The people you hang out with are crucial to your mental health, physical health, and personal success. They have the power to bring you up or hold you down. Making the best decisions for your health can be challenging and when you surround yourself with people making unhealthy food decisions and skipping exercise, those challenges will be even harder.

Here are ways to surround yourself with people who inspire you to be a better person and motivate you:

  • Seek out people whose habits you want to imitate
  • Hang out with people who are into health & fitness
  • Set boundaries with people whose habits conflict with your goals
  • Read encouraging books, blogs, articles
  • Follow inspiring and motivating people on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest
