This really resonates with me. I read it in The Happiness Project book. Here goes: "A small daily task, if it be really daily, will beat the labors of a spasmodic Hercules." It gets me on the treadmill and bike every morning. I hope... Read more

I started going to an osteopath in March. I've had a place in my low back that is always painful to the touch. I went to him for five treatments. He was highly recommended because honestly I knew little if anything about the field of osteopathy.... Read more

It has taken me quite awhile to get back on participating fully again. I fell off tracking my food last summer after I went on vacation. I am not sure why it has taken me so long to get back at what makes Spark work for me. There are lots of gre... Read more

I've decided to set my exercise level a touch lower so I am more likely to do it. I was doing about an hour a day but making that committment sometimes keeps me from doing it at all. So I am committing to 1/2 hour daily and can obviously do more... Read more
