System: Focus: Values & Beliefs: SP Recommendations

Keep in Mind...
... Many of us get so wrapped up in our daily routine that we don't think about this important area. In fact, your Values & Beliefs can be the foundation of everything you do; they can lead directly to your Purpose.

... A set of healthy Values & Beliefs should be positive, make you proud of who you are, bring a sense of peace, and be based in respect for yourself and others. In particular, Integrity, Honesty, Fidelity, Charity, Responsibility, and Self-Discipline are valuable fundamentals for a strong SparkPeople program. To give your brain a jog, others may include Respect, Freedom, Fairness, Empathy and Knowledge. The ideas listed below are meant to help you live your life according to the Values & Beliefs you hold closest, whatever they are.
