His and Hers Mugs and what they say to our brain!

His and hers mugs

It was at breakfast the other day with my partner that I really looked at our mugs! I don’t mean our faces but the actual mugs we use for our early morning drink!

We went out and bought a mug each as a reminder of a holiday and after very careful selection here is what we chose

two mugs together belonging to two different people

Not just practical as they are both extra large capacity but also perhaps with their own story to tell.
Mine is this one…..

A spacial smile makes my day

It reminds me each time I use it that a smile means such a lot.
To me a smile means I am through the worst days of my illness. I have energy to smile again and lift the corners of my mouth. I am able to laugh again. That a smile when given out generously can make the world feel a much happier place. Just one smile can ripple around the world. A laugh can be watched by millions and spreads good endorphins around your body, making you feel better.
Watch this, and then come back here!

My mug reminds me to make each day a better day, to be grateful for the joy in life that you sometimes have to seek or sometimes travel the world to find.

Now my partners mug says something different.

He really is not a ‘morning person’ so the mug reflects that. The picture is of ‘Grumpy’ from The Seven Dwarfs. I know he’s not a grumpy person but he does have a habit of looking on the bleaker side of life, of dwelling on what could go wrong. How things have gone wrong in the past and probably will do again tomorrow. So starting the day off with a mug that subliminally reinforces his perception of life, I think may add to that perception.

How do you start your day, is there something in your routine that sets you up with a smile, a belief it will be a great day or do you not believe today will be any better than the awful day you had yesterday!

Try some positive thinking, try thinking of 3 things you are grateful for each morning and again at bed time. I don’t want, ‘my family’, or ‘the sun shone today’. They need to be more personal and individual, like’ I’m grateful for the hug my Father gave me today’, I’m thankful for the cup of tea my son made for me’. It’s actually the little things that mean a lot and for me it was sometimes ‘I’m grateful that today I took 3 steps, or I’m grateful for the opportunity to work with my body to heal’.

Here is a short video you can download and watch each morning and each evening and I hope it will set your mind on the right direction for your wonderful day ahead. Don’t tell me that you’ve never bought something just because of a bit of advertising, as I probably would find it hard to believe you, so watch this short video clip each morning and set yourself up for a great day ahead.

    The mug relates to miserable wet and cold UK mornings. It feels so different in warmer weather!
