Motivational Coffee Mugs | How to Get Through 'Ditch New Year’s Resolutions Day'
Make 2019 the year when you finally stop being so effing hard on yourself! Our new motivational coffee mugs will help you get you through both "Quitters Day" and "Ditch New Year’s Resolutions Day".
These self love mug designs are made to promote positivity - have a sip and share the message!
It's a new year, it's time for change, there is a feeling in the air that this is the year it all will happen!
But two weeks into January, you give up and it's back to the same old habits.
Yes, we've all been there.
The first day of the year may just be the worst day of the year to start a new routine, according to some psychologists.
You are trying to recover from the holidays and catch up on work. And the awful weather conditions (at least here in Canada) are making most of us utterly miserable.
In the United Kingdom, they have named January 12 'Quitters Day', whereas in America and here in Canada, we call January 17 "Ditch New Year’s Resolutions Day".
Find Motivation with Inspirational Mugs
Only 1 out of 5 Canadians will actually keep their New Year's resolution.
When asked what the most common obstacle that hinder us from keeping our resolutions is, the most common answer is lack of motivation and willpower.
And that's exactly where our self love mugs come in to the picture.
Every morning, you can sip coffee from a mug that reminds you and everyone around you, that you are an original who deserves to achieve every goal you have set for the new year.
Tips to Help You Keep Your New Year's Resolution
But of course, you cannot rely on our self esteem boosting mugs alone to improve yourself. Here are some concrete tips on how to not abandon your goals for the new year.
Changes take time and you may not see results right away. Don't let it discourage you and keep your eyes on the prize.
Make Short Term Goals
Set up goals for a week or two, that will lead you towards your long term goal. Remember, if you want to change, you need to have a schedule for your goals and a plan to make them part of your life. It won't happen without structure!
Find Your Peers
If your goal is to run a marathon, join a running group! Ask a friend, who has made a similar resolution, to be your accountability buddy. It will be a lot easier to achieve your goals with support from other people!
Never Recycle an Old Resolution
If last year you decided to lose weight and it did not happen, then do not make the same resolution again this year. Find another goal that excites you more, but still results in weight loss, like 'join a water aerobics group' or 'run a marathon'.
