Who Is In Your Community To Support Your Best Life?

I have beencommunity thinking for a bit about the idea of who is in your community?  Now I don’t mean who are your neighbors, businesses, social events.  I mean who is in your community to support you in your journey to health and wellness?

It is my belief as humans we need connection, in fact, we do need community.  We need support when we are making the big changes in our life!

We see community very clearly in business.

Business is set up in teams or community.  You see Entrepreneurs, for the most part, set their business up through connection.  Networking events, Mastermind groups, business building groups are a few examples that come to mind. Seth Godin is always talking about connection, building tribes.  In business it is a normal way of life to go out and find mentors, coaches and teams to build and grow a business.

Yet when it comes to health, wellness, fitness it doesn’t seem to be the same connection.  Or as least I haven’t seen it.   Jim Rohn famously said that we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with. Who are you spending time with? A healthy, vital community or a sick one? 

In our modern society, there is so much information on health, wellness, fitness yet we are living in an age of chronic illness, obesity and a lack of movement and vitality.

What makes a community for you?

So, who are you hangin’ with? Do you surround yourself with like-minded people when it comes to eating real organic food cooked at home? Who do you connect with for exercise strategies?  Do you feel there would have more value for you to improve how you feel connecting with like minded people?  What kind of group would be of value for you to live your best life?  What kind of information would you be looking for to increase your vitality? Do you feel that with the right support it would be an easier journey for you to make lasting changes?

    I never thought about a community for health and wellness. I am so used to the business aspect of networking and team building, so why not fitness? I do get more out of it when I hike with someone else. It does help to have someone there to support you, help you and just be there. That’s a great idea!
