WIN THREE FLOATS, WITH OUR “ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE” CONTEST
Throughout November, we’re going to be challenging both ourselves and you to exercise our gratitude muscles together. Sometimes there is a lot to feel despondent about:
*the dumpster fire of an election that has us wondering if anyone is really steering this ship
*the Nebraska winter temperatures quickly approaching to plant that sweet kiss of freezing
*whether or not you can withstand the year wait for the second season of Stranger Things.
*Daylight Savings Time (am I right?).
There’s a lot that can fill up our buckets of gloom and melancholy if we let it.
But there’s always a lot more to be grateful for than there is to be despondent about. And we want to spend the whole month of Thanksgiving exploring those together. Will you join us? Every day? Can you dig deep and find something to express gratitude for for the rest of the month? Come on, we even knocked off a few days as we are grateful for procrastination 🙂.
If you can, you’ll be entered into a challenge contest to win three floats (worth $195). Just in time for Christmas gift-giving.
In a very real, neurologically-based way, floating itself actually helps increase gratitude. fMRI studies have shown that floating decreases activity in the posterior cingulate cortex – the part of the brain that governs self-referential thinking – and consecutively disconnects that part from the medial prefrontal cortex, where decisions are made. Simultaneously, floating boosts oxytocin production, our natural “love” chemical. Possible translation: floating makes you think about others more and make decisions from a place of love. In a way, floating is a gratitude generator. So for those of you who float regularly, this should be easy! 🙂
So what do you need to do?
1. Check our page every day for our latest Attitude of Gratitude post (where we’ll share something we’re grateful for). Comment on each day’s NEW post, not this one.
2. Comment on that post with something YOU’RE grateful for
3. If it’s a person you’re grateful for, TAG them
4. Do that every day for the rest of the month (Beginning Nov 3rd) and on November 30th we’ll pick a winner of 3 floats
**Just saw this – no biggie – make sure to back post on the previous entries for your chance to win!
The gift in this activity is the activity itself. They say any bad habit can be broken in 30 (28 in this case) days. Can we break the bad habit of negative thinking and speaking, together? The float prize is really just the cherry on top.
Join us, Lincoln, and build your attitude of gratitude.
