Peer influence

People are successful when they have a support network. Studies show that our health is strongly influenced by those around us. Friends and peers can provide accountability. Your healthy behavior inspires change in others as they see your positive results.

Start a challenge with co-workers or family members. Agree to rewards for achieving short-term goals such as being tobacco free for 4 weeks or being active 5 days a week for a month.

We are encouraging locations to create local Well•NS Action Teams who work with the Well•NS team to identify activities and events with the most powerful impact locally. We are looking for people who have a passion for wellness and a story to share.
