But now I have discovered SparkCoach, which keeps me motivated and really helps me experience all the cool things to help me live healthy.

I have learned that my morning affirmations help reduce stress and start my day with a positive note. I get up a few minutes earlier each day and spend time with SparkCoach or a devotional book. I do this just before my morning workout or just after (depends on the day.) This is quality time I spend with myself. This only takes about 10 minutes and prepares me for the day ahead.
Today in SparkCoach I had to think of how to add some extra movement in today. While at work I found Coach Nicole stretches at your desk video, which helped with stretches and also for every 20 min. I am sitting, I try to get up and stand or walk back and forth for about 2 min. As sometimes I can't leave the front desk. If there is something I can do standing up, I'll do it.
All these years, no matter where I shopped, or what I was shopping for, I had a list in my head, or a written grocery list, and my only objective was to get in and out as fast as possible. Nobody understood why I did that, but for me, it was self preservation, as I'm agoraphobic. Now after watch today's video on SparkCoach, I've been right all these years! What a boost it gave me to know that I've been on the right track all along!!! 224
