Recently, I was sent Refocus Bands to review and I have to say, it is my favourite gift that I have received during lockdown. Refocus Bands are just that, they are bands that you wear, that help you to refocus your thoughts. You focus and prioritise the printed words, such as ‘You Matter’. Such a simple concept, but such a powerful message. I find them encouraging and uplifting.
Originally, the concept for refocus bands started as creator Deanna Saracino would write positive and encouraging words on thick elastic bands, for her teammates. Twenty years later, she has her own company creating bands for all to wear. You can buy the ones they have designed, or even create your own.
“We truly believe that in order to create the life you want you must work hard for it, surround yourself with good people and focus on what matters most to you.”Refocus Bands
So why do I love them?
These bands are a little reminder that, ‘You Matter’, to ‘See The Good’, and that ‘You Got This’. Each message is written on a band and you can choose to wear it showing the message, or the pattern, keeping the message private to you. The message helps you to quieten down any negative thoughts, by instead focusing on the printed words instead. A little prompt or affirmation, if you will.
“We produce up to 60,000 thoughts per day.Refocus Bands
80% of our thoughts are negative.
REFOCUS BANDS allow you to be more mindful and take control
of your thoughts by simply flipping the band every time a negative
thought overpowers you. Every flip helps encourage a positive
thought that guides your inner voice in the right direction.”
