How do you deal with friends who don’t sup­port your healthy life­style?

Shape (Singapore) - - Live Healthy -

“First, ex­plain that your aim in pro­gress­ing your health is to as­sist you in many ways, in­clud­ing mak­ing you a bet­ter friend. But you don’t want any ob­sta­cles in your life that will keep you from pur­su­ing what’s best for you, and this in­cludes peo­ple,” says Jen Wider­strom, celebrity trainer, life coach and US Shape ad­vi­sory board mem­ber.

“It could be that those un­sup­port­ive friends are strug­gling with their own mo­ti­va­tional is­sues and your suc­cess just high­lights their strug­gles. If they’re on board with a happy, healthy you, keep ’em. If not, time to drop ’em.”
