Social Sabotage And How To Handle It

Is your social life sabotaging your healthy habits? Are the people around you making it too hard to eat healthy? Here are some tips to help you stay on track.

  • Plan Ahead
    If you have a party, event or outing planned with your friends, try to find out what will be available to eat and try to plan for a healthy choice.
  • Healthy Snacks
    Have a healthy snack at home before your next social event, and you won’t be as hungry at the event.
  • Quick Workout
    Do a quick workout at home before your outing to burn some extra calories so you don’t have to pass up that piece of birthday or wedding cake.
  • Improve Your Social Network
    Recruit your current friends to join you in your healthy lifestyle, and make new friends that already are living healthy. Habits can be contagious amongst friends.
  • Select Different Social Activities
    Try out new social activities that revolve around healthy living such as taking a natural cooking class or joining a charity training group for a walk, marathon or triathlon.
  • Keep a Journal
    Is the stress in your life causing you to eat or drink too much during social activities? Try expressing your feelings in a journal to highlight the triggers of your stress. Sometimes just writing down your problems will make you feel better.

If your friends still take you thru the drive-thru as you attempt to resist temptation then check out Fast Food Freedom, Ditching the Drive-Thru for fantastic alternative recipes to your favorite fast foods.  What ways have you found to combat unhealthy social temptations?
