You’ve heard of the word affirmation, right? They’re POSITIVE things that you say to yourself in an attempt to change your negative beliefs.
Affirmations are great, and they really help train your brain into thinking differently, but they need repetition.
I’m going to show you how a simple everyday mug can help reinforce your affirmation and new positive thoughts easily and without any real effort on your part.
By the end of this blog post you’ll know how to be able to reinforce your affirmation just by drinking your coffee or tea.
There are only 3 simple steps to this, They’re really easy but I’ve given an explanation below just in case. Let’s get started.
Choose your affirmation
Decide on what are you trying to change. Affirmations support us when we are trying to change something about ourselves.
Do you feel that you need to have permission or be told by someone else for this affirmation to really resonate with you? Often if we tell ourselves “I am enough” it just doesn’t feel the same as someone else telling you “you’re enough” Having someone else tell you might be easier to believe.
We’ve been conditioned to look for outside validation since we were born, so it’s going to take some time to move away from that. Either way, I always find affirmations most helpful when my brain believes at least part of them.
If you are at the point where you have worked with affirmations before and know how to trick your brain into a new way of thinking, then go ahead and use the first person to help give yourself an extra kick. An example of this would be “I am good enough”. Just make sure your brain doesn’t automatically follow it up with “yeah right, who the hell do you think you are?”
Pick your font
Choose a very easy to read font (the style of text), as your brain should be able to read the words instantly.
I know script fonts look so pretty a more traditional sans serif or serif works much better. Which is why I only offer these 3 styles of fonts for my affirmation mugs.
Ordering your mug
Ordering your mug is super easy, but I’ve added in a screen shot below so you know what to look for (if you’re reading this in the future Etsy may have changed it’s page layout so it might look a tad different!)
First of all, select whether you want a matching coaster for your mug. The next drop down box is for you to select your font style. As you go through the images in the Etsy listing you will see the image that gives examples of the 3 different fonts available. Choose your favourite.
The last bit of information that I need is the quote or affirmation that you would like on your mug.
Then you check out as normal and I’ll get started on making your very one custom affirmation mug!
Ok so your mug’s ordered and it’s on its way. What are the other ways you can use it?
- Use it as a pen pot on your desk
- Fill it with sweeties (hopefully, the kids won’t think to look)
- Drink a hot drink out of it (obviously!)
- Put in on display where you will see it as you walk through your home
- Stash the toothbrushes in it
