7 Day Holiday Giveaway!
We all need a little bit of goodness in our brains to make us happy. Each prize has been specially curated so that you get some good times into your mind!
We have all seen those diagrams on what our plate of food should consist of, a solid guideline on what our body needs. Did you know there is also a Healthy Mind Platter, which in my opinion is even more important than the food one. Without a healthy mind, you are unable to make other healthy life choices. Here is what it looks like:
This thing was developed by a Clinical Professor at the UCLA School of Medicine Dr. David Siegal alongside his buddy, Dr. David Rock, Executive Director of the NeuroLeadership Institute. Now, these dudes are hella smart and know what’s what when it comes to the magic of your little brain and what it needs to be happy.
If you want a brain like Mother Theresa, Professor X and Stephen Hawkings all rolled into one, then do each of these 7 things every day and you’ll be on your way!
I am giving away 7 different prizes that will help you get this goodness all up into your brain!
Seven daily essential mental activities to optimize brain matter and create well-being:

DAY FOUR: Down Time
When we are non-focused, without any specific goal, and let our mind wander or simply relax, we help the brain recharge.
Prize: 1 hour float and a 30 minute massage courtesy of HÄLSA Spa! Take a break from the hustle and bustle of Holiday shopping and step into Halsa’s gorgeous state of the art sanctuary in Kits. You’ll leave totally relaxed and serene after a massage, float and tea sipping in their sumptuous lounge.
