F3 ventured into the bold new world of Palencia on this beautiful Saturday Morning. After a thorough scouting mission on Friday morning ,Saigon Sam and myself had a proper beatdown planned to christen this hopefully soon to be permanent, to-be named AO. 8 pax in total gathered, including 1 FNG, after the disclaimer and communication of the F3 mission a brief message was offered. According to a neuroscience theory our human minds have a negativity bias. “The brain is like Velcro for negative experiences but Teflon for positive experiences.” Teflon for those confused is the brand name for  the chemical coating, polytetrafluoroethylene, a non-stick surface used on frying pans developed in the 1930’s.  “it takes at least five positive interactions to make up for just one negative one.” To counter this we must make a strong effort on the positive thoughts and interactions we have, and think about them for at least 30 seconds. Basically any chance you get think about something you are thankful for and sit with that that thought as long as possible!
