More and more people find their lives too stressful. They wish they had more time for themselves and their loved ones. At the turn of the year, many resolve to make changes in their lives. Some want to eat a more balanced diet and consciously lose some body weight. Others want to be more active in sports or stop their unhealthy vices. But they give up their good intentions too quickly and fall back into their old ways.
So that it does not come only so far, one should tackle the necessary changes in health-conscious behaviour not in self-direction but rather in pairs. Couples in which at least one of the two life partners shows terrible habits, which leads to predominance, nicotine addiction or lack of sporty activity, can convert their good resolutions much better as soon as both want to reduce the same vice. In the case of smoking cessation, for example, more people achieve their goal when both partners tackle it as a team. The success rate is much lower in couples where one partner tries to quit smoking while the other continues to smoke. Similar proportions can be seen in couples taking up more sporting activities. With like-minded people, getting closer to your goal is much easier and more effective. Excess pounds can also be reduced more effectively in a team because the mutual role model function plays an important role.
The good resolutions for a healthier way of life would be much easier and more lasting convertible if both life partners in the team and not only a single person were included. And those who do not have a direct like-minded person in the family circle should join a suitable group – be it for losing weight, a regular athletic workout, or kicking the habit of possible unhealthy lifestyle vices.
Many allies promote perseverance and lead more quickly to success. And by the way, all participants benefit from the social contacts, which counteract a fast pace and monotony in everyday life, so that they can enjoy the hours, days, weeks and months of the new year more intensively and in good health!
Sport brings joy and enables you to reach new horizons. A healthy and balanced diet supports you in your sporting activities and helps to increase your physical fitness in the long term. Did you already know? You already set the course before physical activity – for example, if a runner trains with a full or empty stomach, he won’t get far.
