the only time I did it was when it was part of a challenge. I didn't continue because it didn't do anything for me.

Yes on the ones I lead, sometimes on others.
I keep several of the class teams I've led 'open' in case anyone returns and wants support and the huddle comments let them know there's still someone here and ready to listen if they feel lost in the maze.

I used to in order to get more spark points, but I don't really do it anymore. I would rather communicate via messages or sparkpages. I'd rather send a spark goodie. Besides, I have a bit of a challenge with myself to try to get spark points by using things that are really benefiicial to me, like getting 8 glasses of water, or exercising, or reading articles and blogs. By the time I've done some of these things, I feel like I've been on the computer so long that I don't want to take the time to huddle anymore.

For those of you that don't huddle or don't know how to do it, you have to click the button "View Huddle Wall / Huddle Now" to be able to do it. It is self explanatory from then on.

As to the point, I think it give you a chance to tell you team something encouraging, like "we can do it" or "yay!". You can always write your own, for example I like to write "No Excuses" to remind us that we are full of excuses and they will always be there, as obstacles, but it is up to us to No to them and leave them behind. No excuse is good enough to stop us from our healthier selves.

If you don't huddle, try it now. Plus, you get one spark point for doing so, per team, per day for upto 5 points per day.

I don't huddle regularly, but I do use it. Most times, I use one of the standard phrases, but sometimes write my own.

A women is often measured by the things she cannot control.
She is measured by the way her body curves or doesn't curve, by where she is flat or straight or round.
She is measured by 36-24-36 and inches and ages and numbers, by all the outside things that don't ever add up to who she is on the inside.
And so if a women is to be measured, let her be measured by the things she can control;
by who she is and who she is trying to become.
Because as every women knows, measurement

I don't like to "huddle". I am not that original in my comments ( Not often anyway).
I prefer answering message boards (like this one). Plus I have more room to write.

Yes, all my teams with a phrase that I input.

"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. "
