Here is a link to the quiz:

The journal is for you, so you can do it however you want. Some people use their Spark blog, some people use the private Spark Journal (look under My Trackers and click on Planner - the journal is on that page), some people use paper. You should do whatever you are most comfortable with.

Where is the stress test and is there a desperate location for the stress journal or do you just hand write it. This is very confusing.

On your Start page, on the right hand side, you'll see a heading titled My Community. Under that you should see Community Links, and under that My Recent Posts. Click on that and you should be able to find it.

If you have your email enabled, you should get one when someone replies.

You can also click on Message Board Subscriptions and you may find it there.

Ok...I'm really hoping somebody can help me out here. I posted at about 8:30 or a bit later last night. It was my first (introductory) post here and I don't remember which topic I posted under and, consequently, don't know how to get back to it to see any responses. Please, how can I find my post? It had the goals I was considering for the challenge. I do have them written in my journal but still...Sorry!

Hello, this is probably a silly question but is there a requirement to do the stress journal on the blog. I have established mine (week one) in a private team as I don't really want to blog about my major life stresses in public. I blog about weight, minor issues and have fun with my spark blog, but I don't share what is really stressing me out. I think this challenge is a great idea, think I tried it before but definitely will do my stress journal in private. :)

Moving in new directions.

CLEARNIGHTSKY - The weekly links are time released and based on the date you joined the challenge team. So for example, if you started the challenge this past Sunday on 8/18, the week 2 link will be available for you to click on next Sunday, 8/25. Week 3 will be available the following Sunday and week 4 the Sunday after that.

Hello!

Looking forward to working on Week 2, but the place where you can click on (and check off) Weeks 2, 3, & 4 are grayed out on my Official Stress Busting Challenge Team page. I've only received the Week 1 email (and I've checked off Week 1). Instead of worrying about why I haven't received my Week 2 email, I was just going to use the Team page to get the Weeks 2-4 assignments.

Any idea if I'm doing something wrong to make my hyperlinks gray out?

Thanks for any help.

I see my question and answer below and would like to make a suggestion. Is there a place to submit suggestions? It concerns being able to SEE the results of the stress test (those questions you answered 3 or less to). It would be fairly easy to program the questions and answers and final score. Most of us don't really have the time to go back and "take it again" and we don't remember what we answered with so many questions. As it stands ... I'm not really sure WHAT to work on ... and that sort of defeats the purpose. Thanks!

Thanks Denise and Debbie for the tips.
Yes, I have been keeping a stress journal this week. Have found a couple of things I should be doing. Hope to compile a short list of goals soon.

Welcome to the team, Sue! If you just started, then you should be keeping a stress journal for the week, making note of what is causing the stress, how it makes you feel and how you responded to it. After doing that for the week, you can take that info and use it to help you set up some goals for what stresses you. You can also go to this message board to see what others have set up for their goals: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/t

Hope that helps!

It can be anything that helps you relax/destress - take a walk, deep breathing, take a bath, refuse to argue with your child/spouse/coworker - almost anything if it helps you.

Hi,
I started this challenge this week in hopes of de-stressing my life a bit,
I am finding that stress if affecting my health goals.
The question I have is about the goal setting.
I am a bit confused as to what kinds of goals one would set for stress busting.
I was hoping to learn what kinds of things to do to help lower my stress levels and so
do not know what to put down for this part of this week's action steps.
Hope someone can give me some clues!
Thanks.
Sue

When I have trouble sleeping due to worries, I try reading until I am very drowsy or watching something on TV that I've seen before, so I don't get too invested. It's usually enough to distract me from my worries and let me fall asleep.

I'm not quite understanding your last post about tracking that. Can you clarify that for me? Perhaps tell me exactly how you are going about tracking that goal and what exactly happens when you try to track it.

It is not losing the info that I input but the clock seems to go 24 hours (I try to post in AM at about the same time daily) and then tomorrow will show how this works...Am I failing to do it correctly?

So far my input is on reports.

Thanks!

I am trying to post my stressor log (online under weight measurements). I have been using for a long time weekly. Now I want to log daily. for this challenge and it took 2/23 info but will not accept today's.

Can you advise me if I am at the wrong site or if I need to change a setting....

Thanks for any help you may give me.

Erin, you can take as much time as you need to complete the challenge. I know people who have taken several weeks to do one "week" of the challenge. It's fine - you do it at your own pace.

Erin - Yes, you can still participate in this challenge. On the main team page there is the Challenge Details box. Within that box will be your weekly action steps. If you click on the link for week 1, you should see those steps for the first week. When completed, you will check the box in the Challenge Details box. The links for weeks 2-4 are time released and will be available for you once a full week has gone by. So week 2 will be available for you 1 week from the time you started the challenge.

Hope that helps!

OK - I AM COMPLETELY LOST HERE. I SEE THE BOX TO CHECK OFF WHAT YOU HAVE DONE. BUT WHAT I DO NOT SEE IS WHERE THESE ACTION PLANS ARE THAT ARE TALKED ABOUT. WHAT ARE THEY AND WHERE ARE THEY?

I weighed in again today dropped another pound. I love it. I feel really great. I took a trip to North Carolina to visit my son and daughter n law. Had fun and relaxed while I was there. Done some serious thinking on the drive down and back about how I let myself fall into this person I am today. I've decided along with losing weight and getting into shape I am also changing my outlook on life. I just quit smoking two days ago, struggling but doing ok. I look forward to reaching all my goals how ever long it takes.

I just quit smoking 30 days ago. I understand your stress. Believe me-it will get better!! Take deep breathes and flex your arms and hands. I wrote out index cards with all the reasons to quit and carried them around at the beginning. My favorite is: "Stop putting my mouth over an exhaust pipe and inhaling" That is what smoking is like-an exhaust pipe. Hang in there and write me if you want. I have been there and still experience some cravings but basically doing well. Oh-here is another thing to do. Put a used ashtray in a baggie; then every time you want to smoke-go smell it!! It will turn you off-believe me. Well, good luck on de-stressing and quitting. I am here if you need me.

Humility is the key to a beautiful you.

I'm in the same boat as MELLIE1030 -- I did this challenge around New Years 2011, but a year and a half later, I've added quite a bit to my plate AND I'm on day two of quitting smoking, so I feel like I'm inundated right now and need to focus on de-stressing my life as much as possible until I can get through the withdrawal!

Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.

I think I will start this challenge over. I went through it and was good for a while, but now have reverted to my old ways. Maybe that's why everything I do is going wrong. I have a god feeling for today. emoticon

TRINAA4 - If you go to the Team page, you will see the Challenge Details box and that will tell you what week you are in, along with links for the weekly challenges and how to do the challenge. For blogging, you can blog on your SparkPage or write in your own journal (or whatever mode suits you best).

how do I do this challenge? what week I'm I in? Do I blog here for my stress journal? emoticon


I got want to do it and do this for me. My mind is in battle and my body is at war. I'm in battle with myself and if I can over come myself than I can over come it all and do it one day at a time, let it go and get one step closer to my goal.

Yes, it is a current challenge (you can do it at any time). The challenge is automated in giving the weekly info in the challenge details box, but both BE-THE-CHANGE (my co-leader) and myself are around to help answer questions.

I just joined this challenge and now I see that it started in May of 2010!! Is it still an active challenge? I don't see any more current posts from the coach so I am really wondering if it's current or not.

You would need to go back and take the quiz again or at least click on the link and see which items you would/would have answered with a 3 or lower.

How do you get the results to the stress test... I mean how do you "review the questions you got 3 or lower on?"

Can you be more specific in what you are doing and what is happening for you? Also, what browser and version of browser are you using? Have you tried a different browser?
