Communities are a place for like-minded people to share their ideas and grow from the perspective of others. No matter how smart you are or how many books you have on your bookshelf, there’s nothing like being part of a group of people who value what you value and can offer you advice when you are stuck, especially when it comes to your wellness journey.
All too often people try to get and stay healthy on their own, without the support of others. When swimsuit season nears and your motivation is high, you might be focused. But what happens when your motivation shifts, or life gets tough, or you can hide beneath layers and layers of clothing? Being part of a wellness community can provide support when you need it most.
Getting off track isn’t a bad thing. We often make it a bad thing with our feelings of shame, guilt, and blame, but the truth is a lot of lessons can be learned when it happens. Learning those lessons on your own can be tough. Being part of a community helps you put those lessons into perspective and allows you to come up with real solutions to try, which have worked for others.
