After a long battle with autoimmune issues and treatment for it, I’ve decided to a push myself into a challenge group with my friends, co-workers, and my husband.
The best part is that none of us are selling anything … Zero, zip, zilch, nada! We’re simply sharing the Whole 30 journey and our fitness and health goals.
I’ve read that “A healthy friendship is one where two independent people make a deal that they will help make the other person the best versions of themselves.”
Proof that I actually do get by with a little help from my healthy friends … And my New Balance Women’s Zante Sportstyle Sneakers. They’re kind of my favorite right now!

Friendships can have a major impact on your health and well-being, but it’s not always easy to build or maintain friendships. Understand the importance of friendships in your life and what you can do to develop and nurture friendships.
What are the benefits of friendships?
Good friends are good for your health. Friends can help you celebrate good times and provide support during bad times. Friends prevent loneliness and give you a chance to offer needed companionship, too.
Friends can also:
– Increase your sense of belonging and purpose
– Boost your happiness and reduce your stress
– Improve your self-confidence and self-worth
– Help you cope with traumas, such as divorce, serious illness, job loss or the death of a loved one
– Encourage you to change or avoid unhealthy lifestyle habits, such as excessive drinking or lack of exercise
Friends also play a significant role in promoting your overall health. Adults with strong social support have a reduced risk of many significant health problems, including depression, high blood pressure and an unhealthy body mass index (BMI). Studies have even found that older adults with a rich social life are likely to live longer than their peers with fewer connections.
