A strong support system is crucial to the success of any wellness journey, and having people to lean on when times get tough can be the difference between sticking with a plan and going back to the old ways. So often people hit a roadblock or a plateau along their path to get better and without the proper support, they lose focus and drive and end up back sliding into the unhealthy habits of before.
By being able to look to others, people can find the inspiration or encouragement that they often do not have the ability to give themselves. Ripple Changemakers can help be that difference for employees, but other co-workers can also be there to support when needed.
By teaching good communication and compassion, Changemakers can help employees learn to be better support systems for their peers and themselves.
