March Mindfulness Bracket Challenge

How To Play

In the ultimate crossover event, get ready to participate in some March Mindful Madness! If you’d like to enhance your challenge experience and determine your favorite mindfulness activity, be sure to participate in this fun and engaging bracket challenge. The first step is to download and/or print the bracket using the links below.

Completing the bracket is easy! The “first-round” match-ups are pre-filled with activities to get you started. On each day of the challenge, select a pair of the provided activities and complete your favorite item from the pair. After completing the activity that was your favorite, move that activity on to the next round of the bracket. Each day your bracket will become more personalized and filled in with your favorite mindfulness activities. By March 31 you will have two of your favorite activities going head-to-head to battle it out and be crowned champion of your bracket. If you miss a day, no worries! The activities are simple enough that you can complete more than one a day if necessary.

How To Submit

Utilizing the All Chat feature within the challenge page, post a photo of your completed bracket for your chance to win $25 PulseCash*. To find the chat board, select the Chat button on the left and then click on All Chat.

Entries must be submitted by 11:59 PM on March 31 to be included in the contest. Only completed bracket photos submitted within the challenge chat board are eligible for the drawing. Each participant is only allowed one entry. A total of 20 winners will be drawn and notified at the challenge conclusion.
