Topic: Tips For Healthy Living

A women’s group is a perfect place to support each other with personal goals.   A great topic is around healthy living.   Each person may have a different goal, though the overall theme can be how to increase our physical, mental and emotional well-being.

Whenever we reach out to others to share our concerns, dreams and goals, we become stronger.    In a group you can take turns discussing what areas of health you want to work on, set goals and help each other meet those goals.   Encourage each other to start small and this way you can build your “success muscles.”

15 Ways To Be Healthier” on Gaiam.com provides tips to start your discussion.

More and more research is showing that the key to lifelong good health is what experts call “lifestyle medicine” — making simple changes in diet, exercise and stress management. To help you turn that knowledge into results, we’ve put together this manageable list of health and wellness action steps.

Important
Not everyone wants to set a goal and that’s ok.   Still have the discussion around healthy living and what it means to each member.    The important ingredients of a women’s group are:

  • A safe place for all members to feel comfortable being who they are in the moment.
  • If a member wants to change, ask “what would be the best way to support you towards the change you want to make?”
  • Otherwise, stay away from giving too much advice and trying to change the member.
  • Show respect towards the other members.

A women’s group is about healthy living.   Even if it’s not the topic, being together, laughing, sharing our lives, enhances our well-being.
