Great ideas Hilary...I especially love the quote idea, they are little tidbits of wisdom and I love quotes!!!
I would like to see health, nutrition and exercise incorporated into the quit forums. I have tried it in the past with forums like "keep the quit and lose the weight" and they just simply didn't create excitement or conversation. I am one that needs the communication and that is the main reason why I am on SP!
Hope this helps!

Hello Brandi .... How are you ? Do hope all is going well with you....and that you are being very kind to yourself. I have actually been trying to exercise my brain and there are two areas where everywhere I look , scrolling through the Teams to which I belong, no one has come up with the following two ideas. Both ... may well be fun and in their own way even prove helpful They can be daily or weekly ....
1. Quote your favourite quote . I personally tend to think of quotes as being "little wisdoms" and all look to the positives in life generally,which is something we Quitters sometimes need, to set us up again on our two feet and kick-start our self-confidence when feeling alone, fragile and vulnerable.
2. Tell us about a humouress memory of yours. One of those many moments we tuck away (sometimes because, at the time, they don't seem to be all that funny, but as the years pass ) the re-counting alone often results in moments of utter mirth and merryment to the listener,or reader.
Anyway Brandi, hopefully this will kickstart some ideas. Have a lovely rest of day...

Personally, I love challenges. They keep me involved and accountable. And it gives me something to work towards. I would like to see this team participate in some challenge every month. But I want to make sure that the challenges are geared towards your goals, not just my ideas. So please toss out some ideas...as basic or detailed as you want to me. I will do my best to include them all in the upcoming months. Game on!
