Spark Teams

Thursday, December 27, 2012

I left a few spark teams. I either didn't feel supported at all or wasn't active on the teams.

Teams are suppose to make you feel hopeful, optimistic & supported.
Do you have any team recommendations? I am open to any ideas. I just don't want to feel like a number.

    I would love to see you posting more on Inner Journey in order for us to be supportive of you. I know that many members use their their journals rather the team threads but there are some of us who respond to all team posts. If you have any suggestions to make the team more supportive for you, please let me know.

I also keep my team numbers low and leave a team if I am not getting what I need from it. I have Inner Journey and the BLC21 Challenge team coming up. The newbie sign up thread for that has just come available. While I wait for BLC 21 to start in Jan., I am doing BLC Winter Challenge. This is my first round on them and feel motivated by them to stay on my healthy lifestyle journey.

Good luck in finding your niche here on SparkPeople.

    Amen Lilac!!! I've been on holiday hiatus due to family home takeover. However I think of you, each Pepper, and this team often. Please know the RBS is not a number but a very special pepper!!

    The whole idea of being here at SP is to get support, encouragement, and knowledge about how to live a healthier life. If you're not feeling that from a team, then there's no reason to keep putting effort to it. There are many others here who will welcome you and help you. Sometimes it's by shedding off what's not working we can find what does work.

    Every so often I go through my list of teams and delete some and add a few new ones. I try to keep the number manageable - not sure how some people can keep up with dozens of teams - I have trouble staying up to date with my six.
I did join a new team this month - Come On Light Your Fire spark team. They offer a lot of challenges to help motivate members. I have only checked out a few as this month has been so busy with the holidays and stuff. However after the new year has settled in I am looking forward to using this team to help keep me motivated and encouraged.
The spark team - Babysteps Brigade is another of my favourites, along with Inner Journey.
Best wishes in finding teams that you click with. I have always found you to be an encouraging and supportive spark friends and I hope that 2013 will be a great year for you!

    You are such an encouragement to The Peppers and to me personally.
I hope you never feel that way about our team, because YOU
have really made a difference for me.
Thank YOU!
