Well To Be Well
ever considered how your friends, partner and family can influence your goals?
How is this so and how can it work to your advantage? Well, the support of those
closest to you, plays an important part in your life, as you are very susceptible
to the influences of the people around you. Perhaps you remember the 6 year old
who goes off to school an angel and in a short time, has learned more swear words
than a trooper! Mix with critical people and you learn to criticise. Mix with
an enthusiastic crowd and that rubs off on you. Spend time with those who look
after their health and wellness and you’ll find yourself doing the same. If you’re
still wondering how this influences your weight, you may want to think about spending
time with people who want to support, nourish and nurture you, so that you have
the encouragement to succeed, even more!
slimming clubs can provide valuable personal support as you lose weight. Psychological
and emotional issues can be aired and the design of most slimming clubs is to
make changing your eating behaviour easier and more sustainable. Some will provide
one-to-one counseling and environments like this can offer good self-help. Or,
the diet plans on this site can be a source of even more support when you ‘do
it with a friend’!

about how much you drink and when.
perhaps is one of the key questions to ask yourself when you are tempted to reach
for another pint of beer or glass of wine, especially if another one is likely
to take you "over the top." Drinking is commonly associated with the
need to feel more relaxed, especially in social circumstances, as it is with stress
or comfort. You may wish to explore what it is that you really get out of drinking.
What need does it meet that is not being met in any other way. Once you have identified
this need, then you can start to find creative and functional ways to have that
need met, but without the excessive drinking.
To get solace in the drink
is to reach for what can become for some, the preverbal comfort blanket. At
this point if you are heading towards this category, hit the pause button, BEFORE
you reach for that next drink. Look for the stop gap and pause long enough to
ask yourself whether this is what you really choose for yourself and if it is
appropriate, how is it likely to effect others in your life who are important
