Feeling Alone: What to do when your family isn't on board with your health choices. [Ep. 29]
We all crave to be supported, especially by the ones we love the most. But we don't often get this luxury. Usually, we're trying to make healthy choices in an environment that may not be very conducive to our success. More often than not, our own home and family members can feel like the biggest obstacles standing between us and our goals.
And not only that, but we truly desire for our family members to jump on board and make the same healthy changes with us! Isn't that ideal??
On this episode, Scott and I chat about having the right attitude with our health and fitness journey, and how you can be a powerful influence in your home without being aggressive or forceful.
We talk about the do's and don'ts for when your family isn't on board with you: phrases you should and should not say, how to ask for their support with humility, and how to stay focused on the things you CAN change, not the things you can't.
