4 Ways to Help Your Spouse Practice Better Weight Management, Lincoln, Nebraska

Without a doubt, you love your spouse unconditionally—and it is because of this that you want the healthiest life for them possible. If they have recently become a bit heavier, you may be concerned but uncomfortable broaching the subject with them. However, they may feel better about your recommendations for weight management if you follow the below tips and engage in healthier practices alongside them.

How to Encourage Healthy Habits for Your Significant Other

1. Avoid Being Critical

It’s always best to come from a place of compassion rather than criticism. Avoid jokes about their weight or making them feel guilty for eating certain foods, which might only make them resistant. Instead, focus on the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle. For example, discuss how much more energy they will have or how weight management might reduce the knee pain they’ve been feeling. 

2. Buy Healthy Groceries

You and your partner will be tempted to eat junk food if you only buy processed options. Fill your kitchen with vegetables and fruits. Explore new, healthy recipes together. You might just find a new favorite.

3. Plan Active Outings

weight managementStaying active does not need to feel like a chore for your spouse. Encourage them to get on their feet by planning fun active outings. Hiking, bike rides, dance classes, and swimming are all fun ways to get active and bond as a couple. You might find that your spouse starts planning these outings as well, so you can keep moving together. 

4. Encourage a Weight Loss Program

Some individuals need more structure to stick with a healthy lifestyle. Weight loss programs offer both guidance and support throughout the process. You can also join together, so you can motivate each other to stick with your goals.
