SOMbands - Get Out Of Your Head & Start Living! CLOSED

giveaway is closed.  
thank you to all who entered!

My Dear Friends,

SOMbands are there to remind us that we can overcome life's most challenging obstacles by changing our state of mind.  Each SOMband has a quote written on it so when you look at it, you're inspired and ready to tackle a challenge.

SOMbands are high quality
fabric wristbands that are:

  • Washable and recyclable
  • Available in 4 sizes
  • Reflective so you can safely train in the dark
  • In colors that are proven to elicit a positive mood
Charles R. Swindoll once said, "Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it."  so that must mean that if you change how you react to something, you can change your life!  The mind is an incredible thing.  Train your mind to react to things differently and you can change your whole outlook.  SOMbands wants to help you do that!

From the website:

SOMbands Color Psychology 

"Viewing and wearing certain colors can have a powerful effect on mood and psyche. SOMbands are designed to match and illicit a positive mood.  Here is the research behind the band colors and what they represent:

Several ancient cultures, including the Egyptians and Chinese, practiced chromotherapy, or using colors to heal. Chromotherapy is sometimes referred to as light therapy or "colourology" and is still used today as a holistic or alternative treatment.
In this treatment:
  • Red was used to stimulate the body and mind and to increase circulation.
  • Yellow was thought to stimulate the nerves and purify the body.
  • Blue was believed to soothe illnesses and treat pain.
  • Green was used to relieve stress and help heal.
In 1973, Francis M. Adams and Charles E. Osgood, two scientists at the University of Illinois, interviewed people from 23 cultures about how colors made them feel. They also reviewed all the existing scientific color studies (there were 89).  Here is what they found:
RED gave the most universal associations of strength, vitality and activity.  RED= passion, most attention, strength, energetic
GREEN is a cool color that symbolizes nature and the natural world.  It also represents tranquility, good luck, health, and jealousy. Green is often used in decorating for its calming effect.
BLUE calls to mind feelings of calmness or serenity. It is often described as peaceful, tranquil, secure, and orderly. It can also lower the pulse rate and body temperature.
YELLOW has a dramatic effect of energizing you with 'happiness' vibes. Yellow= optimism, joy imagination, friendship, hope sunshine, summer."
I like the positive messages that these bands promote.  The feeling of looking down and seeing one of these messages is sure to inspire and bring about your inner strength.
