My 8 year old son, is a Beautiful boy, but he has a few issues with his behaviour. We decided to get him a Snapp Happy band after hearing about it through Rotunda College. I spoke to him and asked if he would like to try it to see if it would help. So he agreed, he picked a blue one- no other colours would compliment his Everton kit! He used it mainly in school where most of his outbursts were. School agreed to ley him wear it. After a few weeks we discussed if it was working- He said he snapped it when he got angry. Anyway a few months on and he's a lot calmer.....
I have worked in car finance sales for 4 years, we deal with daily knock backs, targets and the pressure that comes with sales on a monthly basis. I began to use my Snapp Happy band and introduce more positive thinking into my work life and the results speak for themselves.
I have been one of the top within my team for many months now and find myself having a much more resilience and an upbeat approach if I face negativity or rejection. I am grateful for the information Snapp Happy provides on a daily basis, from motivational quotes to free videos and I will continue to use my band, and support the Happy Army in and out of the workplace....
I tripled my business in 2 weeks and I put it down to using my beautiful Gold Snapp Happy band!
I work on gynaecology at Preston Royal Hospital. I am in the process of opening my own clinic to help rehabilitate people and their families through trauma, poor health and chronic illnesses. The Snapp Happy technique and way of thinking would be an incredible service I could carry forward in my clinics...
Wow....this is a life changer! I am a trained Movement Psychotherapist and work in a child bereavement centre. I also run an international business based around positivity so I was open to trying out this new band as I think it's a great idea but a little skeptical on whether it would work....
Maia is usually a very bubbly and confident little girl but she has had a few minor issues recently with girls in school and she also gets upset quite often when I drop her off at school because she misses me during the day....
I absolutely love my Snapp Happy band. I dont know where I would be without it (I know this sounds dramatic but its true!) I am a lawyer full time and also run my own buisness from home. I struggle at times with negative thoughts and often catch myself worrying, but the Snapp Happy band has made me very aware of my thoughts which in turn has helped me to control them....
I love the Snapp Happy Band and the Stop:Snapp:Smile technique. I am a practicing Senior Clinical Psychologist with more than a decade’s experience of working within the NHS with adults with mental health difficulties. I see first hand in my work how our thoughts can influence what we do and how we feel.
Negative thoughts can get in the way of us becoming our best selves. In my work I also see how becoming aware of our thoughts so we can change them has a huge benefit on our wellbeing and quality of life....
Snapp Happy had the first slot of the day at our school on an INSET day straight after Christmas - a tough gig I am sure you will agree!
I had wanted to start the New Year coming together as a group to motivate and inject some positivity into us all after a fairly long break away from work and before the start of a full-on day of training for staff and neither Carol-Ann or Jo disappointed....
My Snapp Happy band is great. When my mind was focused on the negativity going on in my life, one wee ping made me focus on a positive so quickly - I felt some people were ignoring me and I couldn't understand what I had done, but I changed that by looking at those people around that made me happy....
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to Snapp Happy! Since I've purchased my Snapp Happy band I havent had a single panic attack. Every time I've felt anxiety, instead of letting it boil over and dwelling on it, which then leads to a panic attack, snapping the band has helped me acknowledge the problem and be in control of the problem and deal with it there and then....
You will have no doubt have head these four words echoing around in your head at somepoint in your life, it has certinly ran through mine...on more than one occasion!
This kind of question can temporarily paralise us, especially when we are about to try something new, or for example step into an exam, give a presentation or do something that requires us to step out of our comfort zone.
Our brains are wired to protect us from harm and discomfort, it's ok for us to ask ourselves this question, infact it's healthy to do so from time to time!
But when we find ourselves asking this kind of question and jumping straight to a negative conclusion or presumption, this can cause chaos in our minds and stop us from moving forward and trying new things.
So what can we do if, or should I say WHEN we catch ourselves asking this kind of question?
Follow it with this simple question...."What's the worst that can happen?"
This gives you the chance to explore different options, if something doesnt go to plan, what are the possible outcomes? Chances are, they won't be half as daunting in reality as it felt in your head! And you now have the opportunity to think about what you could do to prevent such things happening. If it turns out that the possible outcome is out of your control, remember this saying...
"You can't control the uncontrollable"
This short and simple saying has helped me through many challenges over the years! It's a gentle reminder that some things in life are simply out of our control, but what we can control is how we choose to respond to the situation.
On the flip side of asking "What's the worst that can happen?" we may find that infact, the possible outcome may not be at all what we feared! It may lead to a positive outcome or at least be something that we can learn from.
Another thing to remind yourself is that you can only do your best, your best is your best! When facing exams nerves for example, it is key to remember that as long as you give it your best shot, that is all you can ask of yourself.
Looking after your mind and body is a key factor, getting plenty of rest and sleep is great for calming nerves and fuelling your body with nutritious whole foods and lots of water is a great way to ensure you are clear headed and ready to think rationally.
Yes, we often want to fuel ourselves with caffiene and sugar as this gives us a "quick fix" of feeling focused and alert, but these kinds of stimulants alter our physiological state along with our mental state. Avoid too much caffiene and fast-foods and stock up on what we call "brain fuel", you know the type!
We do of course have to recommend wearing your Snapp Happy band and using the simple STOP * SNAPP * SMILE technique, yes the bands look pretty awesome with the huge range of colours now available and did someone say sparkly unicorn band??!!
But in all seriousness, the CBT technique that underpins the Snapp Happy bands is a fantastic tool for overcoming those negative thoughts, habitual questions and doubts that we often find ourselves having.
Recognise the thought such as "What if I fail?"
STOP the thought and SNAPP your band to interupt the thought pattern, then simply remplace the thought with something empowering such as "I can do this" or "What if I succeed?"
This begins to re-train your thinking and when practiced, like anything, it will begin to become a new habit and create a more positive, optimistic mindset!
Snapp Happy is not a substitute for professional medical advice or prescribed medication. Our approach is designed to enable people to increase their positivity and achieve their goals through re-training thought processes using a Snapp Happy Band and our trademarked technique STOP • SNAPP • SMILE
If your difficulties are severe and persistent please consult your GP or a registered mental health professional.
Gratitude is the basis of love and happiness. When it comes to self-love, it can be surprisingly difficult to identify the things we love about ourselves. The principle of love is to help you recognise what you love and value in yourself and in others.
Make a list of 5 things you love about yourself (I love my smile, I love being helpful, I love that I make people laugh)
Tell someone what you love about them, it will brighten the day for you both
Do at least one thing you love today (sing your favourite song, walk in the countryside, go for a drink with a friend)
Think of your body as your vehicle through life. Fuel it. Respect it. Love it!

Effective listening is one of the building blocks of success in the home, school and the workplace. By learning to stop and listen to ourselves and those around us, we shift our consciousness into the present moment. This helps us become anchored in the present, mindful of who we are and able to communicate more effectively.
When you wake up take the time to be still and listen to the pattern of your breathing. Imagine each breath filling you with energy ready for the day ahead
What does it need? Water, food, sleep...don't be distracted by what your mind is telling you, and what is going on around you
Really stop and listen, don't rush in with what you want to say, actively listen
How does it make you feel? Do you feel energised, happy, reflective?
Are you being kind to yourself? Are you being critical or negative? Use your Snapp Happy band to manage your inner chatter with
STOP • SNAPP • SMILE™
Laughter draws people together in ways that trigger healthy physical and emotional changes. Laughter strengthens the immune system, boost mood, protects you from damaging effects of stress and can even add years to your life! Research has shown that 15 minutes of laughter a day is as important for your heart as 30 minutes of exercise 3 times a week.
Remember the last time you laughed until you cried, it's impossible not to smile! Message whoever you were with to remind them too!
And share it with someone, see if you can make them laugh!
Whether it's danger mouse, looney tunes or spongebob. Take time to have fun!
Take your pick! A hat, funky socks or even a cape...and if anyone asks you about it, answer 'didn't you know it was National Cape Day?'

Learning new skills helps keep our brains active and interested in the world around us. Addressing challenges as opportunities to learn and grow, helps develop a growth mindset. We don't just learn consciously, we are subconsciously gathering information about the world around us from our senses.
Find out something new about your body and mind and share it with others
And use it as many times as you can today!
Set aside time to learn something you have always wanted to do such as playing an instrument, doing a headstand, cooking or dancing
What is your town famous for? How many people live there? How big is the earth? How old is the Universe?

Our lifestyle is the way in which we live, it includes our working and leisure patterns of behaviour, such as activities, attitudes and interests. It often reflects our individual opinions, values and self-image.
With the likes of social media and technology, we can find ourselves living in a cyber world. Connecting with yourself by fuelling your body with nutritious food, exercising, exploring nature and enjoying the world around you will ensure you live a happy, balanced lifestyle.
When you first wake up, before you rush into your busy day, stop for a moment and remind yourself of 5 things that you are grateful for in your life
Exercise for 20 minutes a day or more. Physical activity not only gives you a slimmer, stronger body, it boosts brain power too!
Fuel your body with goodness, make your meals look as bright and colourful as you can. Fill up with greens, protein, fresh fruit and veg
Make a conscious effort to spend time with positive, uplifting people who support you

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or CBT is recognised by the NHS as the gold standard for treating anxiety and other cognitive disorders. It has been evidenced to be effective in over 200 clinical trials. It is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are all interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious circle or "negative loop"
"Cognitive" What we think.
Everything that goes on in our mind - past, present and future
"Behaviour" What we do.
Activities such as talking, walking, dancing, playing, plus everything we don't do!
"Therapy" How we get better.
A process that we do to cure us from either a disease or disorder
Elastic Band Technique
One of the most widely recognised CBT techniques is known as the elastic-band or rubber band technique. The technique relies on the principle that you are able to interrupt your default thought patterns by snapping the elastic band and consciously replacing the automatic thought with the one you want to embed. Often this would mean replacing a negative thought or behaviour with a more positive one
