The Use Your Words Project harnesses the power of intention to help people achieve goals and live more mindful lives. Here is how it works.
Choose a word that represents your goal or aspiration. For example, someone who is struggling with getting things done, might choose the word PRIORITY. So the next time they are overwhelmed with a long list of tasks and short time to do them, they will be reminded to question what has priority. It can be any word you want, it just needs to make sense to you.
Fill out the form below and order an intention bracelet with your word stamped on it. Once you have the bracelet there are three simple rules to follow.
First, wear your word continuously for three weeks. Why? Because research has proven it takes at least 21 days of repetition to either make or break a habit. The bracelet serves a touchstone of your intention.
Second, take a photo of your word and post it to whatever social media you like and tag it with #useyourwordsproject. If you are not on social media, then simply take a photo of your word and find a way to display it. You can save it as your phone or computer’s wallpaper, or have the photo developed and put it out where other people can see it.
You don’t have to include an explanation unless that is something you are comfortable with, just the photo alone will serve as your outward and public declaration of your intention or goal.
Third, tell three people during the 21 days about your word. It can be as simple as “look at this cool bracelet I bought, I chose the word priority to remind me not to get caught up in unimportant tasks” The reason for this step is to help you articulate your purpose. The more you talk about it, the more likely you are to do it.
That’s it. Simple right?
