Pebble affirmation Stones

What you will need

  1. A smooth pebble or stone
  2. Permanent markers in various colours
  3. Optional: Paints or stickers for decoration

How to do the pebble affirmation stones

Take a wander through your garden or head to a nearby park to find a smooth pebble that fits comfortably in your hand. Wash and dry if needed then, using a permanent marker, write a positive affirmation or draw a simple symbol that resonates with you. Allow the ink to dry completely to make sure your design is long-lasting.

Keep the stone in your pocket or place it somewhere you'll frequently see, like your desk or next to your bed.

How to make it your own

Use different colours for different affirmations.

Add small stickers or additional decorations to make your stone uniquely yours.

Create a set of stones with a range of affirmations and symbols to suit various moods and situations.

Use these pebble affirmations as tactile reminders to help you shift your mindset and find calm during stressful moments. We have carefully selected five affirmations that you can use as a starting point foe the exercise. They’re designed to assist and support you when you're feeling stressed.

Each affirmation targets a different aspect of stress, from reminding you of your own resilience to encouraging a sense of peace.

  • I am in control. This affirmation helps you remember that you have control over your reactions, even if you can't control external circumstances
  • This too shall pass. A reminder that stress is temporary and that you will get through whatever challenges you're facing
  • I choose calm over chaos. This affirmation helps you consciously choose peace and calmness over stress and chaos, guiding your mindset and actions
  • I am resilient. This affirmation reinforces your inner strength and ability to bounce back from stressful situations
  • Breathe in peace, breathe out stress. This affirmation can be used in conjunction with deep breathing exercises, helping you focus on inhaling peace and exhaling stress

Optional: Sealing your affirmation pebbles

To ensure your affirmation pebbles last a long time, you may want to seal them. This step is optional but highly recommended if you plan to carry the pebble with you or keep it outdoors. By sealing your pebble, you'll ensure that the affirmation or symbol remains visible and in good condition for a long time.

You will need: Clear acrylic sealer spray or clear water-based varnish

  1. Place the pebble on a flat surface in a well-ventilated area, like outside. You may want to use newspaper underneath the pebble to protect the flat surface.
  2. Apply a light coat of the clear acrylic sealer spray or varnish, covering the entire surface where the affirmation is written. It’s better to do a few light coats rather than one thick coat tp prevent the sealant from running.
  3. Allow enough time for the sealant to dry before handling and using your affirmation pebble.

Why this activity works

Affirmation stones serve as tactile reminders that help ground you in moments of stress. The very act of holding the stone can divert your focus from stressors, offering immediate relief. The positive affirmation or symbol acts as a mental cue, which will assist you to focus away negative thoughts or reactions to a more positive and constructive mindset.

By engaging both your sense of touch and your mental focus, pebble affirmation stones offer a holistic approach to stress management. They're not just stones; they're pocket-sized tools for emotional well-being.

Experience the soothing touch of positivity with pebble affirmation stones. They're your go-to stress relief allies, perfect for those who are always on the move.

It's the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. and once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.
