Feeling a bit down? Do someone else a favor! Do a good deed. Step up to the plate and make the sacrifice for which there is no reward but feeling better about YOU!
My Weight Watchers meeting ran out of the new Getting Started books. My Leader was nearly in tears. She asked if I could go to another location to get some. I did. I was energized for the day! I got an email of thanks from her and the Territory Manager. I'm still smiling! Good deeds are noticed! And they do make us feel !

I have found that on a day, when I a not feeling motivated, or am feeling a bit down., if I begin to write down how I am feeling, or what is bothering me, then I begin to think of the good things and writing about them, I begin to feel "sparked". I want to get up and get going. Write in your blog when things are good, so you can look back on them. But journal when you struggle also. It is all motivating!
I have found that if I am feeling a bit down, one way that I help myself is to leave a SparkGoodie for a friend or if Ileave a supportive message on a blog or a page. It's a great way to tuen around my own feelings as well and I love doing it!!
Give someone else a boost who might need it too!!
I have found that lately when I am having a bad day, I smile at a stranger I see and they 9 times out of 10 will smile back. I brighten someone else's day and they brighten mine by returning the smile!!
So when you are feeling a bit down, smile at someone and see what happens.
