Home Truths: Self-Love Cards
SELF-LOVE CARDS (DECK OF 50)
Home Truths are perfect to use as part of your self-love toolkit. Containing 50 realistic, compassion-driven mantras, Home Truths cards focus on topics including:
- Love & Relationships
- Identity & Worth
Our thoughts are critical in shaping how we experience reality – I’ve seen this transformation within myself and I continue to see it within the women that I work with. Let’s look at some facts:
- The average person can have more than 70,000 thoughts per day. That’s around 35-48 thoughts per minute.
- Research has shown that up to 80% of the average person’s thoughts can be negative or worry-based.
- Up to 98% of these thoughts can be exactly the same or similar as the thoughts that the average person experienced the previous day.
Think about those facts, and reflect on your own negative thoughts… have you become stuck in a pattern?
Containing 50 powerful Self-Love Statements, my Home Truths self-love card deck hits you right in the soul and help you find clarity. Home Truth cards are a starting point; a launch pad from which to carry on with self-love and leave insecurity behind, replacing it instead with acceptance and peace.
If you have become stuck in a pattern.. don’t worry, it happens to all of us thanks to nasty little patterns that we call Cognitive Distortions. Cognitive distortions (biased ways of thinking about ourselves and the world around us). Every time we repeat the faulty thoughts and behaviours, we further solidify negative behavioural patterns and toxic thoughts. Common cognitive distortions are black and white thinking, personalising, catastrophic thoughts and over-generalising. Have you ever made yourself believe that you’re ugly, unloveable or undeserving of self-care? Cognitive distortions will have played a role in those negative thoughts. And if you’re like most of us, negativity can sometimes consume you and create a snowball effect.
The bad news: Cognitive distortions can become deeply ingrained and take serious work to overcome. The good news: Just one powerful statement is all it takes to start to disrupt this process. By being aware of our cognitive distortions, we can start to shift our mindset to one of rationality and objectivity which, in turn, leads to more positive emotional and behavioural experiences.
Home Truths can be used any way you like! Use them yourself, give them away as gifts, leave them as notes to yourself around the house… the possibilities are endless.
Important info: Home Truths are not a magic cure. Think of your cards instead as simple reinforcements of other positive habits and changes that you’re making to your wellbeing. Knowledge is power, and understanding the root causes of your struggles will help you make positive changes throughout your life that are holistic, effective and sustainable in the long term. The psychological impacts of positive affirmations can be profound, but like all sustainable positive change, you must commit yourself to openness to overall psychological change rather than just contextual change. And Home Truths are just one part (albeit an awesome part) of your self-love toolkit! I’d like to take this opportunity to remind you that if you’re having serious concerns about mood, self-esteem, body image or any other aspect of your mental wellbeing, please consider a chat with a therapist. Your brain is important, and you deserve to look after it.
“I facilitate a girls group in Antigonish, Nova Scotia Canada. We do a lot of talking about body image and self-love. I purchased the Home Truth affirmation cards and used them as an activity with a great group of Year 9 girls. The girls picked out one or two affirmations and then recreated them. They shared them with the group. I challenged them to bring these affirmations to mind during their week when they needed a pick-me-up and their stories were amazing! Thank you!”Fayen Fraser
“These cards are something I need to remind myself of on my self love journey, and that’s okay. Through counseling, I’ve learned about mindfulness and how to practice it. It’s all about noticing your thoughts and feelings without judgment. Whether you’re going through something in your personal life, at work, with your family, whatever, give yourself permission to feel whatever you need to feel without trying to stop it or classify it. Life is messy, and that’s how it should be.”Jessica Ballou
“My favourite message of the day: “I am very grateful for all that my body can do.” It’s a message that I love. We spend so much time looking for “defects” of our body instead of thanking everything it does for us. Take advantage of what your body does for you!”Ana Lucia Pacheco
“I love using these cards with my clients… they’re a perfect visual reminder of self-love concepts that can otherwise be quite abstract!”
