International Day of Friendship is today, and its American counterpart Friendship Day is just around the corner on August 6th. We love the opportunity these days give us to take a moment and appreciate the friends in our lives.
From simple activity partners to people that know us better than we know ourselves, friendships are one of the most meaningful kinds of relationships we can have. Not only can friends put a smile on our face, but they can have a deeply positive effect on our mental and emotional health—even our physical health and longevity.
With all that in mind, we thought this was an excellent chance to celebrate some of our friends at the center—including you. So in honor of these days, we’ll be giving away two pairs of wellness treatments as well as a pair of passes to an educational nutritional outing. More details below!
PS—If you’re looking to make another friend or two, our warm and delightful art therapist and counselor Sarah Lustig, MAAT, ATR, LPC, just blogged about the sometimes challenging mission of making more friends as adults. You can read her piece right here.
To celebrate this day, please share a photo of yourself with one of your favorite friends on our Ballen Medical & Wellness Facebook page. We’ll pick the top three photos that we think most embody our favorite things about friendship, so feel free to include a caption describing what you appreciate about that person or your relationship together.
The contest will be running all week from today’s International Day of Friendship to next Monday’s Friendship Day on August 6th.
Photos will be judged by a few of our staff members, and of course this is highly subjective but we’ll be as impartial and objective as we can. More important than lighting and filters or how impressive your vacation looks, we’ll be paying attention to how your picture and words celebrate friendship and hopefully make us feel something positive or otherwise meaningful.
We’ll be giving away three prizes to our lucky winners, but the catch is you have to experience these prizes together with one of your friends!
1st Prize—Myers Cocktail Infusions For 2!
Sometimes called the “Swiss Army Knife” of IV infusions, this IV therapy treatment improves clarity, vitality, general wellness, immune function, and has a lot of other benefits as well. For this prize, you and a friend can schedule a Myers Cocktail Infusion together on us anytime from now through the rest of 2018. You can read more about it here, or give us a call if you have more specific questions. (Value $300)
2nd Prize—Yoga Nidra Private Guided Meditation For 2!
Yoga Nidra is an ancient form of guided meditation. Yoga Nidra is an excellent complimentary therapy for stress, anxiety, sleep disorders, PTSD, hypertension, pain relief, and more. For this prize, you and a friend can enjoy a private Yoga Nidra session all to yourselves. You’ll leave feeling grounded, mindful, and revitalized—and deeply glad you tried it. You can read more about Yoga Nidra here. (Value $120)
3rd Prize—Admission For 2 To One Of Our Educational Grocery Store Field Trips!
Our new Master Nutritional Therapist Christine Battista, CNTP, MNT, loves helping people make smart decisions about food right at the source for many of these decisions—the grocery store! For this prize, you and a friend can take part for free in one of Christine’s upcoming grocery store excursions. You can read more about Christine here on our wellness team page. (Value $30).
So Go Ahead—Share A Pic Of You And Your Friend Today!
So if you have a friendship you’d like to celebrate and share, visit our Facebook page and comment with a picture on our post about this contest/giveaway. Or if you’re a little shy, you can stay out of the spotlight and just see what other clients of the center are sharing!
