When going to different pages within Sparkpeople, I adjust the zoom level on my computer for that page. It eliminates some scrolling. For example, on the sparkteams page, I reduce my zoom and that way I can jump back and forth between my teams and huddle without have to scroll down to reach the huddle button. It can save a lot of clicks!!!!

We need steady energy levels to have willpower.
