be sure to take care of yourself or there will be nothing left to care for others. i took sheris ideas on stress and cut them out and put them in a jar. now when i am ready to reach for food ( or pull my hair out) i grab one and do what it says. sure has helped me. best of luck to you

emoticon TEACH4410,

I just got my book, haven't begun reading it yet. Have you read the story of how spark started? This alone is worth buying the book and supporting the website, after all it is free here. I have been here 2 and 1/2 years - I owe so much to this site.

I hope you had a great day. I napped and probably felt a little sorry for myself today. Quite the motivator I am am.

Look forward to hearing more from you.

Nancy

Thanks, Nancy!

I already have a Spark page set up - there isn't much on it but it's there. Are you saying that you can't see it or that you think I need to add more to it?

I am glad you posted. First, if you set up your spark page we can better support and communicate with you. Our terrific leader, Sheri has posted some great strategies for relieving and dealing with stress on an everyday basis. I hope you have a minute to check them out.

You sure have your hands full. Please set some time for you, in the end you will have more energy and more to give if you are full and happy.

We are here for you, I hope you keep posting.

Good Morning!
I started a sparkpage in June but did nothing til Jan 1. I started a new job in October and am working on my doctorate. I feel like I am partially committed to a lot of things, fully committed to none, hence the stress. It's not the stress I fear, it's the way I choose to deal with it that's the bad thing. I have been dealing with it by running to food and that has to stop. I need to find other outlets and I am hoping that the support on this site will one positive, productive way for me to deal with my stress. Here's to a positive and productive day!

I've been with SP for quite awhile but haven't really been able to get a good streak going. Stress is definitely one of my key issues and managing the way I handle the stress in my life is going to be a key component to staying on track.

I am the mother of six children (hence my username) between the ages of 10 and 16. The children have a variety of special needs among them which make everyday a little challenging for my husband and me. I am also the CEO of a small company which, in the past year has survived but, like all small businesses has had its challenges.

Finding time to do anything for ourselves has been hard and hubby and I have both packed on the pounds over the course of the past 8 or so years. In addition to resolving to taking care of ourselves in this year, we've also resolved to simply have more fun in our lives.

Looking forward to meeting all of you!
