Are you super clear on what you want and why you want what you want? Do you consider yourself revolutionary? When we become clear, our mind shifts and things seem to fall into place. We are not just reciting another resolution or setting an unattainable lofty goal. There is something that makes each of us unique as a S.P.A.R.K. is lit. We strategize with a wish, pinpointing our why, activating a system to cast a vision, refining our next steps by design, knowing we live and expand into a bigger calling for our lives.
We’ve just been reading some stats about New Year goals and resolutions. It’s hard to believe, but over 80% of people who make these resolutions ditch them by February. And many don’t even make it until then.

#1 Eat a Diet Rich in High-Quality Protein
A diet rich in high-quality protein is a proven way to reduce your cravings and burn extra fat. In fact, research indicates a diet high in quality protein is associated with a lower percentage of belly fat, leading to increased muscle mass and a higher metabolic rate.

Well it’s a month out from New Year’s Day, and we thought we’d check in to see how things are going with some of your intentions for 2021. Since health and weight loss are typically high on the list of the goals desired, we thought we’d offer some sage advice on practical ways to curb your cravings!
When stress is high it’s natural for your cravings to increase and for you to look to food to provide extra comfort. Pair that with the addictive nature of many of the processed foods that surround us and finding food freedom can often be a real challenge.

This has been quite a unique season, with more difficult twists and turns than any of us expected. So, we thought it would be encouraging to start the week by taking a deeper look at joy from the wisdom of Kay Warren…
“Happiness is completely connected to what’s happening to us on the external circumstances of our lives. But when joy is turned around with a new definition of joy, it makes all the difference as it has nothing to do with the circumstances that are happening in our lives…
This type of joy has everything to do with what I believe about God, what I believe He can do on the inside of me, and my choice then in response to what’s happening to me is to give praise back to Him.
That becomes something that’s within my control. I can’t always control what’s happening to me on the outside, but I can most definitely control my response, what I do with it, what I believe about God, what I believe he’s going to do about...

If you want to get healthy, you may not need to go to a doctor. You might instead, dive into a community of like-minded individuals and watch your health soar! The power of community to create health is far greater than any physician, clinic or hospital.
According to Dr. Mark Hyman, “You are more likely to be overweight if your friend’s, friend’s friend is overweight than if your parents are overweight. Your social networks may matter more than your genetic networks. If your friends have healthy habits you are more likely to as well. So, get healthy friends!”
Community: The Best Medicine for Change
Group models of intensive lifestyle change like the one modeled by Dr. Dean Ornish for heart disease and prostate cancer, are more effective and will save more lives and more money than using medication and surgery for diseases caused by lifestyle and environmental factors.
