You love spending time with your friends. You share a lot of the same interests, have the same sense of humor, and you just “get” each other. It can be tough, though, when one of your closest friends doesn’t take interest in an active lifestyle. While you want to share jokes and talk about what’s going on in the world as you hit the trails or go rock climbing, your friend just wants to sit on the couch and vape. Which is cool… sometimes. But, what about one of those days when you’re itching to get outdoors and be active? How can you get your sedentary friend up off the couch and into action? Here are a few tips for helping your friend enjoy some new activities.
Your motto may be “Go Big or Go Home,” but that tactic might not fly with a friend who isn’t used to being as active as you. Pushing your friend to do something too big or too extreme right off the bat could cause them to shut down completely and close their mind to trying new things in the future. Instead of an all-day hiking excursion up a mountain, ask your friend to take a walk with you on a beautiful (and easy) park trail through the trees. Make things a little more interesting by downloading an app that leads you to geocaches. Make it fun so that your friend forgets that he or she is even getting exercise.
Take a Lesson
One of the reasons your sedentary friend might avoid doing something active with you is that they feel intimidated by your experience. They don’t want to look stupid trying something new in front of their expert friend, so they just end up avoiding it altogether. You can get over this hurdle by offering to take a lesson or a class on how to do an activity or sport that you’ve never tried before. Let your friend pick what they’d like to learn and make a pact to do it together. You can both laugh at each other (and yourselves) as you try to figure out what you’re doing - as a team.
Tons of people come to Colorado every year. Why? Because it provides the perfect setting for enjoying a huge number of outdoor sports. Most of the tourists to our area have never tried some of the adventurous activities that they embark upon, but they have a lot of fun giving it a try! Have a “staycation” with your friend where you agree to check out some of the hottest tourist attractions and activities around your area. In this “vacation mode,” you’ll find it a lot easier to get in the spirit of hopping into a whitewater raft or hitting the slopes.
Don’t ever be pushy or judgmental with a sedentary friend. It’s your job to build up your friend and encourage them with a positive attitude as you work on getting them into a more active frame of mind.
Vape It Up
You already know that your friend enjoys hanging out on the couch, playing video games, and vaping, so why wouldn’t they enjoy vaping with you just about anywhere? Hooking your friend up with the opportunity to vape while getting active with you in the great outdoors will provide them with just one more reason why they should give an active lifestyle a try.
