The summer months in our area of the country offer a unique opportunity for increased visual examples of active living. The bike/walk trails busy with runners, walkers, and bikers. Neighbors gardening. Kids running through sprinklers or jumping into a pool. Soccer, baseball, tennis, and so many other outdoor activities to view.
The more we see, the more we absorb it as a norm. This is why creating spaces and environments with positive intention is so significant where we work, live, and learn. What we focus on, continually observe, creates our belief about the community and neighborhood we live in, the place we work, and the people we do life with.
This summer take time to consider how you might increase positive community norms in your daily living. It could be as simple as stopping your car at a crosswalk so walker can cross safely. Others driving observe it and potentially reminds them to do the same.
As individuals, we get to set an example for others, encourage not only in words but in actions to grow more of what is good, kind and fosters wellbeing as our community norm!
Building healthy norms with you!
