Support Circles

This month I’ve been talking a lot about building more energy into your life – the kind of energy that helps you power through your days feeling great!

But there’s one way to get more energy I have to bring up because I see it at work EVERY single day.

It’s the people you surround yourself with (in-person or virtually).

Having a strong support system can truly be a gamechanger in your success.

Because not only do you get encouragement and support, but you’re able to give it to others … and that’s incredibly rewarding!

I wouldn’t be where I am today without my inner circle. 

They have helped me to stay on track when I fall off, given me encouragement when I need it the most, celebrated my wins with me, helped me troubleshoot when I get stuck and have truly improved the quality of my life!

I’ve got some tips on setting yourself up with a GREAT support network, but first …

Here are just a few benefits of having a strong support network:

  • It helps you cope with stress better
  • It helps improve mental health
  • It can make you more confident
  • It helps you stick with your healthy habits
  • It cuts your risk of heart disease, including lowering your blood pressure
  • Plus, it’s a great way to make friends, share some laughs, and have fun!

Pretty important stuff. A lot of people underestimate the power of your inner circle. 

If you’re looking to expand your support network, I’ve got a few tips that can help! 

  • Join a fitness class or small group training (Like CrossFit. ;)  )
  • Join an online fitness. If you’re not a member of ours yet, search CrossFit Mshed on Facebook or Instagram.
  • Volunteer. Pick something you care about and find a way to get involved. You’ll meet like-minded people.
