Secrets of Success

Never Pass Up A Buddy



Anytime you are going to hang out with someone you haven't seen for a while - do something active. Take a walk, go bowling - whatever. So often, our social time revolves around food - switch it up!

More Information:

Also - if you call up a friend and they can't hang out with you, schedule a workout time right then and there with them for the future. Don't say "ok, sometime next week" - pick a date, pick an activity, and chisel it in stone. This will add accountability AND variety to your workouts!

  • Walking and talking with friends is great - kind of awkward with someone I haven't seen in awhile though - by SJKENT1

    My childhood friend and I get together once a week just to run errands. Wouldn't it be fun to go for a walk together or go bowling! - by PLIDC1
  • What a lovely idea. If I haven't seen that friend for a while, maybe a coffee first and then hit the walk, bowling alley, whatever - but if it's someone I see reasonably often and the weather is good and we can hear each other rather than battling wind and rain, I think it's a wonderful idea. Good for you. I find that most good ideas like this have something each of us can take away and include in our regime. It might not suit every occasion and every friend in one's book, but yes, go for it! Thank you!

  • I don't see me doing this. Doesn't seem practical. I don't want to walk when i'm visiting a friend I haven't seen in a while. - by CECELW
