Asking for Help

October 12, 2017 | posted in: Exercise, Fitness Tip of the Week, Nutrition | by

Do you ask for help when you need it? It may sound like a silly question, but it can make a big difference in your stress level. It can be important when you are trying something new and need the help of someone experienced. Although sometimes it seems hard to know when to ask for help.

In a recent study by the University of Sydney in Australia, it was found that ‘”…men report feeling less worthy if they need to ask for help, and this has been associated, in our research, with an increased likelihood of men with eating disorders remaining undiagnosed (4 times more likely in our study),” according to the lead researcher Scott Griffiths, PhD, from the university’s School of Public Health.’ (IDEA, 2016)

This study was done to determine the gender differences in body image dissatisfaction, but it got me thinking that we all need to ask for help at one point or another. Unfortunately, it’s usually not easy and it could be embarrassing or frustrating to ask.

So here’s your chance, ask me if you need help with fitness or exercise improvements or changes.

Healthy, happy living!
