SOMbands Review & Giveaway

 **Giveaway Winner - Comment #2, Anne!**

Have you ever been in such a negative mood that it is impossible to get out of your head and just focus on the task at hand? I have those moments all the time - instead of focusing on what I'm doing or what I should be doing, I spend time worrying and stressing out about things I can't control. And the more I think about something negative, the worse I feel.

Which is why I always need to be reminded that Happiness is a state of mind. And thanks to my new SOMband bracelet, I can be reminded of this every day! The Yellow "Happiness" SOMband reminds me that it's all a state of mind -- If I constantly put myself in a negative state of mind, of course I won't be happy. So why not think positive and smile...And be HAPPY!

Charles R. Swindoll once said, "Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it." Does that mean that by changing our reactions to the things that happen to us we can change our lives? YES! This fact has been proven time and time again. The mind is a powerful thing; it can turn around disease and get one through seemingly impossible situations. SOMbands remind us that we can overcome life's most challenging obstacles by changing our state of mind.

The different colors of bracelets correspond to each phrase, since viewing and wearing certain colors can have a powerful effect on mood and psyche. Yellow is meant to stimulate nerves and purify the body. We often hear of yellow as a "happy" color, so it makes sense that it corresponds with the Happiness bracelet.

The thing I like best about SOMbands aside from the positive phrases, is the face that each bracelet has reflective material on it, which is very nice for outdoor activities, even just walking the dog in the evening, throw on a SOMband to remind yourself to have a positive state of mind and stay visible in the dark. SOMbands are washable and recyclable, plus they are comfortable to wear. I will be wearing mine a lot!

I've found myself worrying so much lately about a number of things that my stomach actually hurts. You are so right, worrying won't help, and happiness is a state of mind. Thanks for sharing. And, by the way, I like the gray/green SOMbrand. "Happiness is a state of mind."

I like the blue 'pain is a state of mind" band. My husband has had back issues for a number of years now due to an accident at work (he fell off a roof) and now will be having surgery for a fractured herniated disc. This would be perfect for him.
