In one of the earlier issues of Darling Magazine, there is an article about enlisting in a Wing Girl when trying to accomplish new goals or trying to break bad habits.

I am very lucky to have a huge, very close family which is mostly made up of girls.

To show you but a few. Because I have grown up, surrounded by all these incredible girls I understand how important it is to be supportive of others.

In a previous post, I spoke about how much free time I have since leaving my job a few months ago and with all this free time, I haven’t just been sitting around being a slob not doing anything. One thing which I have been doing quite a lot is being health conscious and getting fitter. You can read about that here. But I am not doing it alone. I’ve been working out consistently (at least an hour every day 5/6 days a week) for over a month now with my brother’s girlfriend, Lisa. It started out as a bit of fun and I honestly didn’t think I would keep it up for as long as I have. I completely put it down to us doing it together. We work out even when we don’t feel up for it simply because we are counting on each other. Even on the days where neither of us want to we still spur each other on and encourage it. We have got this far, we can’t give up now.

That’s just one example of how being encouraging and supportive can be beneficial. When enlisting in your wing girl, here are some things to remember:

What kind of support do you need? Do you need to simply just tell someone about your goals to keep up with them or do you need someone to achieve your goals with you?

Will this person keep you on track? Or are you both likely to give up for the same reasons?

Share your goals with each other. Have short term and long term goals which you both feel you can achieve.

“Enlisting in a wing girl can empower us to live our best lives and become our better selves. She can act as our guide, our greatest confidant, strictest teacher or fearless cheerleader.”
