Support for Staying Active

Getting started

For many people, support from others is a key to success. Staying active is easier when you're doing something you like with people you like to spend time with.

Some ways to connect with others include:

Making a list of who could help you.

Connecting with others can make getting active easier and more enjoyable.

Finding a partner.

What activities would you enjoy doing with a friend or family member?

Asking for encouragement.

Consider asking a friend to check in with you once a week. Words of encouragement can make a big difference.

Learning from past support.

When you've gotten help with past challenges, what was the most useful? How can you use that now?

Getting help with the details.

This might include getting a ride or arranging for child care.

Joining a class or using a fitness app.

Some people use social media or apps to connect with others and stay on track.
