This is a sign that what you are doing isn’t working. So, now you need to stop and reinvent your life. This is the exact situation that drove me to experiment and eventually develop the LifehackrDiet.

IN THIS EPISODE, YOU’LL LEARN:
  • The more you do the more you can do! and the opposite is true; the less you do, the less you can do.
  • How simply making tiny changes to the things you do everyday, you can see huge gains!
  • Standing while you work, even for a short time is an excellent way to improve your health and could reduce the risk of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.
  • Just walking around when you talk on the phone burns calories. I estimate that you can get about 35 steps (I misspoke in the podcast, sorry!) a minute which adds up quickly!

Plus more great tips.

“What do you do if a friend or significant other does not support my wellness journey?”

– Anonymous LifehackrDiet.com reader/listener

The bottom line is if someone does not support your wellness journey, then they need to get onboard or stand down. Before you get to that point, you need to realize that influence is a two-way street. With some simple tips, you can turn a possibly antagonistic situation into a positive journey for everyone!

Here is some real life advice with a couple of examples that show how you can be a positive influence on your social circle.

 

IN THIS EPISODE, YOU’LL LEARN:
  • You need to be strong-willed and consistent with your positive actions.
  • Why people that don’t support your changes need to accept them or get out of the way.
  • Your actions influence the people you hang out with as much as their actions influence you. Knowing this, you can be a positive influence on your social circle.
  • By acting consistently and quietly, you will see how your positive influence ripples through people’s lives.

Plus more great tips.

TAKEAWAY
In this podcast, we learned that “You’re the average of the 5 people you spend time with.” Using that logic, the people you spend time with, each has 1/5 of your influence inside of them too. By making positive changes to your life, being consistent and speaking about your journey calmly, you can be an agent for positive change in their lives too.
