I think we can all agree that, most of the time, working out with friends is more fun than working out alone. Not only is it more enjoyable, it is also good for your friendship! If you are looking to strengthen your bond with your BFF, working out together is a great way to do so! Here is why.

  1. You spend more time together: This is an obvious one. When you work out together, you are getting to spend time together and talk and bond while you sweat your booty off. Setting a workout schedule and having a routine with a friend means more time with them.FullSizeRender (10)
  2. You’re making a transformation together: You get to see your body transformations together and get to congratulate each other! You have been there from the beginning of one another’s fitness journey, so you are able to see her improvements and how her body has changed. Having someone there who recognizes your success and can celebrate with you is a huge encouragement, and knowing that she has been there for you since the beginning of your journey will make you feel so much closer to her!
  3. You’re being vulnerable together: Working out isn’t pretty. You sweat, you grunt, you make funny faces and funny noises. Having someone see you at your worst and most vulnerable can make you feel closer to them. They have seen you at your worst, and at your best, and they still love you!

So, next time you feel you need some girl time or some quality time with a friend, take them to the gym or on a bike ride with you. Your friendship will benefit, and so will your body!

Bad Company Ruins Good Morals

Have you ever heard the phrase “you are who you hang out with”? This phrase comes from 1 Corinthians 15:33 which says “bad company ruins good morals.” What does this mean and why should it mean anything to you?

Ill tell ya why. This is one of the most important verses for our age group to hear. Who you hang out with has a huge impact on your life. I cannot stress this enough. HUGE impact. I have had the privilege of being surrounded with many friends that share the same beliefs and morals as me, and I cannot tell you what a positive impact that has had on my life. It has motivated me to strive to serve others and God, and honor Him with my actions and words and life. As I get ready to move on to college and make new friends I am FullSizeRender (89)realizing the importance of the friends I will make. High school and college are such pivotal times in our lives. They set us up for our future and who we will become. When you are surrounded by good company and people that share the same beliefs with you, it is easy to continue to live the life you know you should be living. When you hang out with people who do not share the same morals as you, and maybe don’t understand why you believe the way you do, it can have a serious impact on your life. I’m not saying not to have friends who don’t believe the way you do, I am saying to limit your time with them. Be smart with the situations you are in with them. You can be a witness to them, but they can also be a negative influence on you. It is easy to go with the flow and do what everyone else is doing, even when you know it is wrong, because so many other people are saying it is okay. This is why the verse says that bad company corrupts good morals. Your faith needs to be protected and nurtured, and that is what happens when you hang out with people that share your beliefs.

Be smart with who you hang out with, because it can impact the person you become.

XOXO, Chels

In my honest opinion, I think we should all be friendlier on a daily basis. Think of how many people’s day we could make, just by smiling at them or being sweet to them? These days friendliness can be misinterpreted as flirting or being “fake.” I find that completely sad, because friendliness is such a great quality to have! It makes your life better, it makes other people’s lives better. Here is how to be more friendly so you can make someone’s day every day.

  1. Smile at people you see: When you are walking down the street, smile at people! Don’t stare blankly ahead and avoid eye contact, smile! Be that person who makes eye contact and smiles, you will be the most friendly, likeable person on the block!
  2. Be aware of body language: You can be a super sweet person, but if your body language is bad you can come off as not-so-nice. Are you sending off good vibes by making eye contact and smiling? Do you appear closed-off and unapproachable? Watch for those things!FullSizeRender (61)
  3. Give genuine compliments: A real, honest to goodness compliment is one of the nicest things you can give a person. People know when you are giving a real compliment or a transparent one. Compliment people on their best qualities and speak up when you notice something good about them or find they did something well! People like to be around people like that.
  4. Make people feel comfortable: If you are at a party or an event with friends and you see someone you are acquainted with looking like they feel uncomfortable, invite them over to sit with you or include them in conversation. This goes for people who don’t have anywhere to sit at lunch or a person who doesn’t have a group for a group project. Make people feel like they belong!

Like I said earlier, being friendly can sometimes be taken the wrong way by some people, but to others it is much appreciated. My simply making yourself more approachable you can improve people’s day and brighten your mood! Try friendliness out, it looks good on you!

XOXO, Chels
