Recently I've been coming and going at one of our local hospitals and was struck by the numbers of folks around...staff and non-staff both!...who could use a little SPARK!
So I xeroxed bunches of the Spread the Spark flyers, along with putting a copy of the 30 Tips for Dealing with temptations on the back side (why waste that empty space, right?) and left these EVERYWHERE! Cafeteria, staff break rooms, lobby, family visiting rooms. I even went to the meeting room where I know Overeaters Anonymous meets and left a pile of them there too...!
Some may think this is a bit over-the-top, but in this day and age when obesity is overtaking smoking by epidemic proportions ( news.yahoo.com/s/ap/2009
) and becoming increasingly a cost factor to everyone in this country, it is clear to me that we need to really push and inform EVERYONE that there ARE alternative, healthier lifestyles and that it doesn't take rocket science to make these changes.
All it takes is some SPARK! Pass it on! :-)
