Start the day with Positive Affirmations
Updated: Nov 15, 2021
How we start the day sets the tone for the rest of the 24h we got ahead. Our mood and thoughts can even affect our sleep. Hence, if you feel struggling and negative emotions are knocking at your door... you may want to try out to practice Positive Affirmations!
What are "POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS"?
Have you ever heard about... we are what we think? You may not believe it right now, but if you practice affirmations for a week, you will start noticing how your thinking is shifting, and so your attitude towards everything in life.
Positive affirmations is a repetitive self-talk that help to reprogram our thinking patterns so that, over time, we begin to think – and act – differently.
Affirmations are positive statements that can help you to challenge and overcome self-sabotaging and negative thoughts. When you repeat them often, and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes.
Harnessing positive thinking can be done for different reasons: to succeed in your career, to calm your nerves, to overcome fear and also, to forgive plus accept yourself.
A way to include Positive Affirmations in your daily routine, and ensure you practice them is to:
On Sunday evening pounder about the week and define 3 main self-talk affirmations you want for the new week (or maybe you want to keep the theme the whole month!)
Have a Post-it on the fridge/mirror/door... - Somewhere you look at every morning.
Close your eyes, breath in deep, breath our and loudly say those 3 statements.
Open your eyes and repeat again the statements. But this time inwards!
Examples of POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS:
I am enough.
At least I tried.
I did my best.
I will keep trying.
I am learning from my mistakes.
I accept my failures.
