WELCOME TO SPARK!!! Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.
1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.
2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.
The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family! *~ Paula *~

Hi, I am Britne and I am 22 years old. I've dealt with some major anxiety since I was around 8 years old, but am not willing to take medication for it. I feel like I'm a good person, it's just when I'm alone that my mind takes over. Anyways, enough of a sob story. I've discovered Yoga has helped me a lot with this. As well as the wonderful music of Medicine for the People, and Trevor Hall, if you haven't heard of them. I highly suggest a listen. So basically, I hope to get tips on how to better beat this anxiety, and how to fit a healthy living into a busy schedule, and a low income. Also having recently discovered yoga, i realize that there are a billion different kinds and its a bit overwhelming! So I would like to know the best beginners yoga, preferably yoga that involves meditation benefits as well as body sculpting. I hope to get advice and encouragement here from all of you lovely people. And maybe to use my own experience to help the rest of you as well! :D
