“The importance of social environmental influences on health-promoting behaviors such as physical activity and healthy eating has been increasingly recognized. Ours is one of the first studies to demonstrate the association of both social support and social norms with physical activity and eating behaviors,” says Kylie Ball from Deakin University, Australia who worked with a team of researchers.

The bottom line here is that if you want to lead a happy, healthy lifestyle, you need to surround yourselves with others who are doing exactly that. This will help you create healthier eating and exercise habits. If you don't have friends that are already doing this, it is difficult to create those habits, but not impossible. You can become that friend who motivates others to better themselves. Instead of ordering nachos, get a salad. Instead of fried chicken, get baked chicken. It's all about the small changes that will impact you in the long run while setting examples for the people you surround yourself with.
