SPARK  ~  Thought of the Day:
Quote: Love comes when manipulation stops; when you think more about the other person than about his or her reactions to you. When you dare to reveal yourself fully. When you dare to be vulnerable.~ Dr. Joyce Brothers
Essential Element: The greatest way to foster love is to offer it freely.  Choose to extend love to those around you without attachment to their response.  Do not give to get.  Give to give. [click here to read 'Spark Insight: Love']

Journal: Consider the difference be between an outcome based response value-based response. A outcomes based response reacts to a scenario based on the situation. A value based response responds to a scenario based on a person’s highest ideals (what they value most ). Write down in your journal the last time you responded to a difficult scenario with a value-based response – choosing to recognize the situation and it’s outcome and then basing your response to it on your highest values.  [Click here for additional Journal exercises]

IGNITE YOUR DAY – Tuesday

by admin

FUEL:  Dish of the Day:
Shrimp Stuffed Avocados At first glance, this may look fancy or complicated to prepare, but in reality, it’s super quick and easy. With the shrimp (you could easily substitute canned crab meat, even tuna), cucumber, bell pepper and the avocado, it’s perfect – plants, fats, and protein.   [Click here for additional Recipes]

AIR:  Movement of the Day:
Goblet Squats Do you sometimes think we’re a ‘squatting cult’?  We are. Nothing compares to squats for full body and core engagement (for even more full body/core work, try Overhead Squats or Thrusters). Squats also undo the terrible effects sitting has on the human body.   [Click here for additional Workouts]

 

SPARK:  Thought of the Day:
Quote of the Day: It has long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things. ~ Elinor Smith
Essential Element: Try setting a positive goal, and move toward what you want; for example: Instead of looking to become a non-smoker, focus on becoming healthier. [click to read 'Creating Change']
