Most Americans Depend on the Support of Loved Ones to Stay Healthy
Having someone else in your corner seems to work well because, according to the results, 59% worry their accountability partner will negatively judge them if they make an unhealthy choice that would hinder their progress.
While health and fitness is one way Americans sought influence from others, they’ve also drawn on others’ music tastes (36%), fashion (29%) and hobbies (24%), according to the survey.
In addition, 17% percent were encouraged to ask for a raise or promotion from others while 14% had others help them feel comfortable getting back out into the dating world.
A whopping 78% even say they wouldn’t be where they are today without the support and encouragement of their partners, family and friends.
"We know everyone is busy and although they want to live a healthy lifestyle it isn’t always easy,” explained Eric Bianco, Culturelle Brand Manager. “We believe simple and efficient solutions are the best way to stick to your wellness goals.”
One way to maintain a healthy lifestyle is to take supplements, which nearly a quarter (24%) of those polled said they always do.
But making it a habit can be difficult without the assistance of someone else. Fifty-nine percent of those studied say they need someone else to hold them accountable for taking their daily supplements otherwise they wouldn’t have the willpower to do so.
Bianco added, “Culturelle provides a line of proven and effective probiotics making it easy for the whole family to support their digestive and immune health in one easy step. One way to hold yourself accountable is to store it on your nightstand and take it first thing in the morning or before bed.”
