Our environment and the people in it have a profound impact on our behaviours. Let me put it this way, if all of your best friends love a gin and tonic on a Wednesday night, well it’s not going to be long before you like going for a gin and tonic on a Wednesday night with them. There’s nothing wrong with that, but if you want to be getting up and going to the gym or going for a walk or doing some food prep, it can be difficult to go against the grain.
So here is your challenge for today, I want you to go through your friends, your partner, your kids, your colleagues – whoever is in your immediate circle that you see every day – and look at what their behaviours are.
How do you see those individuals? Do you see them as the active people that you would like to be, do you see them as healthy eaters, do you see them as really fit people? Are these the values that you align with?
