Friends can have a huge influence on so many areas of your life. It’s especially true when it comes to meeting your PCOS goal of achieving a greater sense of well being via a healthier lifestyle of exercise and eating a balanced, nutritional diet.
It helps if you and your pals have the same aims. Hanging out with friends who enjoy exercise, for example, can make keeping fit and losing weight feel like fun. You don’t have to spend hours enduring a punishing regime at the gym. Going regularly for a good walk or taking a more ambitious hike together is a great way to exercise and have a pleasant chat at the same time.
Having friends who eat sensibly makes a big difference for those with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. If you’re trying to lose weight, it might be best for a while to avoid pals who like eating junk food. Companions who are careful about their weight will offer advice about what works best for them and their tips could prove useful for your own efforts to get in better shape.
In fact, the best kind of friends will provide essential support for all your hard work and act as cheerleaders every step of the way, regardless of whether or not they’re trying to lose weight themselves. There’s scientific evidence that social support makes a big difference in helping someone recover from illness. So it makes sense to accept that the same is true when someone is trying to improve their well being by adopting a healthier way of life.
An idea is to take a good look at people you spend time with and see who is the best company for you right now. This includes coworkers because, of course, so much of many people’s time is spent at work. Who you eat lunch with during the week and what you eat with them can have a big impact.
It’s best to surround yourself with people who are sympathetic to the reasons why you are trying to lose weight. You need to be able to communicate with them openly and honestly and receive feedback in the same way. It’s a huge help if they know the right moment when to give advice and when not to.
