Feeling a Little Mixed Up about Your Diet?

Here's a Fun Game that Will Straighten Things Out

A supportive community approach is part of a healthy lifestyle experience. SparkPeople is based on the idea of people helping each other live healthier lives. Whether help comes from a coach, spouse, friend, online community, team, neighbor, co-worker, social group or personal trainer, studies show that involving other people increases your chances of reaching a goal.

    Make it a positive experience. Both losing weight and a living healthy lifestyle are exciting adventures! Instead of putting pressure on yourself, you should feel good about chasing your goals—not just because it makes the whole thing more enjoyable—but because feeling optimistic and positive helps you reach your goals faster. A study of first-year law students found that optimists feel more confident, are more successful, and even have stronger immune systems.
