I think we all need a little feel good pick me up on occasion and I just tried a new Facebook app, the Tom’s of Maine Good First application on Facebook , which not only asks you what you are doing that is good for you, but who else is in the same mindset. In the application, Tom’s asks you to share which of five positive things you put first today (of course you are not limited to just one). The five areas are: Helping People, Helping Animals, Healthy Eating, Healthy Living and Caring for Mother Earth. As moms, most of us probably do all or most of these each day, but it is nice to remind yourself, that you are doing good. Since I started the day roasting vegetables, and have a pot of sauce made from fresh tomatoes simmering on the stove, I chose the Healthy Eating option.
Once you make your selection, you are awarded a badge to post on your timeline, and shown who else out of your friends have also selected that option. The faces who popped up did not surpise me at all, particularly, the first one who is Kim, the “Guilt-Free” clean eating half of the site Guilty or Guilt-Free, and the fourth, Tera of Girl Gone Healthy, who not only lost 100 lbs, but has successfully managed to keep it off.
It is a fun experience, and your Facebook friends will enjoy being tagged for there good deeds, so why not try it out for yourself.
