How To Refocus Your Energy And Attention

Humans produce up to 60,000 thoughts per day. Amazingly, 95% are repetitive, and 80% of those habitual thoughts are negative. Our brains are hardwired to pay more attention to negative experiences than to positives ones because it helped our ancestors survive centuries ago. This type of thinking is called negativity bias, and although once incredibly valuable to our Paleolithic relatives, it does not serve modern humans in the same way.

Our brains are hardwired to pay more attention to negative experiences than positives ones

The great news is that we can train our brains to work for us rather than against us. There are dozens of ways to do this, but REFOCUS BANDS are making it look and feel good! New research tells us that we can’t make ourselves happier or more positive just by pushing away or blocking off negative thoughts. Instead, we must realize that our thoughts are not facts and choose to think thoughts that empower rather than limit us.

We are creatures of habits and routine, and that includes our linguist patterns. How we speak to ourselves is mostly a subconscious act. Given that we think approximately 1 thought per second, and our brain is in the business of efficiency, it is impossible to always think consciously and positively.

We have all had moments where we beat ourselves up, on and off the court, with negative thoughts and limiting beliefs. Observing our self-talk and becoming more aware of our thought patterns helps us to alter them in a way that better serves our goals and dreams.  

Mastering your mindset and self-talk is critical to be able to shift into peak performance states and truly step into your greatness. Whether you are a youth athlete, professional athlete, or weekend warrior, REFOCUS BANDS can help you prioritize positive thoughts and create new positive habits and rituals that fuel your success.

How To Use A Refocus Band

Every time you become aware of a negative or disempowering thought...flip the band. Every flip interrupts negative self-talk loops and empowers you to refocus your energy and attention on a positive thought that inspires and motivates.

Benefits Of The Band

  • Encourages a Growth Mindset
  • Promotes Presence
  • Increase Thought Awareness
  • Increase Quality of Self-Talk
  • Increase Confidence
  • Assists in Stress & Energy Management
  • Increase Mental & Physical Resilience
  • Catalyst for Peak Performance

Amplify The Benefits Of The Refocus Band:

Add Emotion

When you consciously add positive emotion to the ritual of flipping the bands you amplify the benefits beyond belief. Positive thoughts and especially emotions, trigger a cascade of feel good neurotransmitters that help encode and perpetuate the positivity party in your mind and body.

Internalize The Lesson

When you deeply identify, and reflect on the message/meaning of the band, you create stronger neuro associations that help you positively program your self-talk and ultimately change your behavior.

Give One

Giving the gift of inspiration creates a deeper positive association with the bands, feelings of gratitude, and well wishes for the recipient. Positivity is contagious!  

Repeat! Repeat! Repeat!

Physically flipping the band sets off a program in your mind and body. Anything we do, mental and physical develops and strengthens something called myelin. Myelin insulates nerve fibers and increases the speed and efficiency of those nerves. Think of myelin like a plastic coating around a wire. Myelin doesn’t distinguish between positive or negative thoughts. The more you think positive and empowering thoughts, the more you increase the speed and frequency of those thoughts.

Where Can You Get One?

LA CLE is an online retailer that creates colorful, action based apparel that give you the opportunity to look good, feel good, and do good. HINT: They make great gifts and random acts of kindness.

Share Your Focus!

When you share your focus, you inspire, and connect with others. One of the biggest human drivers is the drive for congruence. If we publicly share something, we are more likely to think, act, and behave in ways that are congruent with the positivity we want to portray.

On that note, my personal focus is: You are Capable of Amazing Things, Hustle & Heart Will Set You Apart, and If It’s Not a Hell Yes, It’s a Hell No.

REFOCUS BANDS are helping people interrupt negative thoughts and refocus their energy and attention on thoughts that better serve them. These little bands serve as a catalyst for thought awareness, inspiration, and behavior change. If you don’t have one you yet, go get one!
