For centuries, hunter/gatherer societies appeared all around the world. It was not until about 12,000 years ago that people shifted away from this model, however our hunter/gatherer roots have remained intact in many societies. In fact, you’ve probably heard the African proverb “It takes a village” to raise a child. But it’s not just child raising that can use a village sometimes. Sometimes getting motivated to achieve goals takes a village, too.
That’s why it’s important to have a team of supporters cheering you on when you start a new wellness routine. Here at Cinzia Spa in Myrtle Beach, we offer memberships to our spa that include access to our Fitness Center. Regular use of our fitness center and professional spa services can help you meet new friends and develop your own tribe who will encourage you and cheer you on with your fitness goals.
Here are a few more benefits of having a ‘village’ to cheer you on with your wellness goals!
Motivation is a big factor in self care. How many times have you hit the snooze button on your phone and struggled to get out of bed to complete your workout? When you have a wellness community cheering you on, it’s easier to get up and going. Seeing your friends is often great motivation for showing up and doing the work.
Staying accountable is another challenge many of us face when embarking on a wellness journey. After all, if nobody is checking in with us, it can be easy to let our priorities slide a bit. When you develop a wellness community, you’ll appreciate the ability to rely on your friends to help you keep accountable with your wellness goals.
Social wellness is just as important as physical wellness. Having friends offers many benefits, including reduced stress, moral support, emotional support, and a sense of belonging. Having a membership to Cinzia Spa in Myrtle Beach can help you meet new friends and experience the many benefits of friendship on your physical and emotional wellbeing, all the while receiving encouragement and strengthening bonds!
Cognitive Health Benefits
Several recent studies have shown that having friends can improve cognitive health. In one study, elderly women who had a solid friendship network were less likely to develop dementia. In another study, researchers found that having good conversations helped ward off dementia as well!
In another about the effects of friendship on health, researchers found that having friends reduces inflammation of the body, which can lead to not just Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, but arthritis, stroke, and even heart disease.
Studies have also shown that having stronger social support can also ease depression or lower one's risk for developing depression.
