SparkCoach Challenge: A Feel-Good Goal

I think you'll really enjoy today's challenge. It's a motivational technique I use myself and one that I know will help you, too. Your challenge is to read an inspirational story (or if you prefer, watch an inspiring video).

So often we are bombarded with negative news stories of sad events or catastrophes. It can be hard to think about the good things in life when the last thing you watched on TV before bed was a news segment about crime, fire or other bad experiences. When I read news websites or browse the paper each day, I try to make it a point to seek out a positive story each time.

SparkPeople's members are full of positive stories. They write them in their blog posts and often our staff features them throughout the website as well. Positivity can be found anywhere: on YouTube, at your favorite news website, in a book or magazine, and even right here. Find a story with an uplifting theme and read (or watch) it today. Then remember its message next time you notice yourself thinking negative thoughts or have a hard time staying motivated.
