Share your experience

You're even more likely to continue your good habits if others know what you've accomplished. I love sharing my Spark experience with anyone who will listen. It keeps me keeping on.

Set short-term goals and blog them.

Set a small number of short-term goals and write a blog about them. This exercise is great for improving accountability.

Begin the DAY with Exercise

I start my day with exercise. I find it gives me more energy throughout the day and that I am more alert and productive after I have exercised. Then, I do not have to fight with myself at the end of the day to go work out when I am tired and ready to relax. I feel positive because I exercised.

Helping Others

I do volunteer work in the community with several organizations. I get satisfaction when those individuals start talking to me because of me giving my time.

"no" Spark Streaks

Start a "no" streak, like no chocolate or no cookies or no candy. Take it one day at a time. Don't say I will NEVER eat a chocolate again. Just say, I am trying to see how long I can go without it. I can eat one if I want to, I simply choose not to today.
