A new study suggests that surrounding yourself with active people may make you do more active things.
Doctor Joseph Rock with the Cleveland Clinic didn't participate in the study but agrees, saying when we share our plans with others it holds us accountable and usually makes us more likely to continue with those plans.
Researchers looked at more than one million people who used fitness trackers and shared their activity with friends over a social network. They found that for every ten minutes a person's friends ran, that person would run an extra three minutes. Doctor Rock says having the opportunity to see what our friends are up to can be a real motivator because people tend to do the same kinds of things when they are together.Source: MetroSource
