Now I’m not normally one for reading… I’m one of those people who when asked, will reply with this cliche response, “I don’t have time!” Though in reality this just isn’t true, it feels that way and whilst I’d can’t help but romanticise the idea of cosying up in the evenings, in my pjs with my head buried in a good book, it rarely happens these days.
But, let me tell you, that changed when it came to Kirsten Helmstetter’s Coffee Self-Talk. A good friend of mine, and fellow small business owner recommended this book to me and actually bought it for me as a little self-love gift, which I am super thankful for because (and I am not being OTT), this book has changed my life. Or the way I look at life at the very least.
I was familiar with the practice of using affirmations to help with self-development, but honestly had always thought of it as a little bit Americanised (no offence Kirsten!), BUT Kirsten’s attitude and guidance on using affirmations just spoke to me on a different level, one I could relate too without cringing… and actually felt compelled to take action from.
The idea is essentially to create your own affirmations aka your ‘self-talk script’ and read this, or say it aloud to yourself each morning when you sit down for your ritualised coffee, or tea, or whatever that looks like for you.

The tadapox pills are sold in the tadalafil as tadacin, tadapox or tadalafil. There are so many things that can cause jaw pain, walmart amoxicillin cost and if. You can follow our blog on medium, twitter, facebook, instagram,and linkedin. Just like we begin to anticipate or long for our morning coffee, to help us wake up and mentally prepare for the day ahead, so to do we begin to look forward to and almost NEED our self-talk.
Kirsten expertly explains the science and psychology behind why this ‘magic’ formula works so effectively, all without leading those of us who like an easy read, to switch off.
I found myself feeling excited to finish a chapter so I could go and implement what I’d just learnt and add to my own self-talk script.
I enjoyed the book so much, that I connected with Kirsten on Instagram to find out more about what inspired her to create Coffee Self-Talk and what affirmations mean to her. Read the full interview here or for a sneak peak, read on:
Kirsten, hi! What inspired Coffee Self-Talk?
“I was in my early 40s when I went through a profound transformation in my life. I admit, prior to this transformation, I had a pretty cool life. My husband, daughter, and myself had health, friends, family, and some success under our belts. I had nothing really to complain about.
But I wasn’t waking up every day with a sense of direction, or purpose. Overall, I had a positive attitude about life but something was missing. There was no sparkle.
So we decided to do something big, and we sold it all to travel the world. The first year, we traveled all over Europe. It was exciting and fun, but I realized I was actually running from something – or more precisely, from a lack of something – using travel to escape from a life in which I felt no magic or purpose.
And there we were, sitting in a beautiful café in a gorgeous historical town in Italy. I was sipping espresso. My husband had a Spritz. My daughter nibbled on a chocolate biscotti. We were living la dolce vita, right? Everything on paper still looked good. But there was still no sparkle.
Well, I was no stranger to personal development, and I realized that if moving halfway around the world wasn’t the answer, then it must be somewhere else. Perhaps inside me.
I learned that in order to change my life, I had to change my behavior. And in order to change my behavior, I would have to change my words in my thoughts. And that’s where I began.
It sounds so simple, but I started with writing down some positive self-talk (positive affirmations) in order to train my brain to think and feel better. And I decided to do this one morning with my cup of coffee, in our tiny Italian kitchen. You see, my old habit was to grab my coffee and scroll through social media or email. In other words, a behavior that was rarely uplifting or fun or joyful.
But the first time I wrote that positive self-talk and I drank my coffee, enjoying my morning for once… well? There were sparkles! I was on to something.”
