Affirmations – Change Your Mind, One Day at a Time

We are bombarded by messages all day long - from advertising and marketing, from conversations with our fellow human beings, or just the stream of thoughts running through our own heads. I believe that you can turn a negative thought habit into a positive one using affirmations. 

The word affirmation comes from the root Latin word affirmare, which means "to make steady, strengthen, confirm." Using affirmations can help you reinforce positive aspects of your personality and your being and help to transform your life. Saying them aloud, hearing then in your own voice is a fantastic way to start rewiring your brain, generating positive emotions, and increasing the number of feel-good hormones in your system. 

Check out the affirmations below, and when you find one that resonates with you, begin a practice of saying it out loud several times a day - start your day on a positive note, and end it that way, too, by saying the affirmation before you go to sleep. After 21 to 28 days of consistent positive reinforcement, you will feel better, have a more positive outlook, and a new, positive habit you can keep for a lifetime!

Loving yourself might be easy to say, but it’s a little harder to do consistently, especially if you’re used to putting yourself on the “back burner” to handle other things in your life. It’s a fact, though, that if you aren’t feeding your heart and soul with love for yourself, everything else in your life gets harder.

Healing is a wide and deep subject, one that cannot be completely covered in one blog post. Today’s affirmation set is designed to help you take your first (or next) step toward self-healing.

To forgive someone means that you have to address your inner pain at the issue or the betrayal and that you call upon other strengths you’ve developed to help you get to the other side of the situation. This can be difficult, but not impossible.

Without a good foundation, nothing can be built. A house with a crumbling foundation won’t stand the test of time, and so, a person with a weak foundation won’t be able to realize their personal potential.

You already know that affirmations can be powerful tools for helping you reach specific, defined goals. You may also know that affirmations can be used for spiritual growth, personal development, or improvement in specific areas of your career.

But did you know that building a regular affirmation practice can have all sorts of side / additional benefits? Affirmations can even have a positive impact on your health and wellbeing!

Defining yourself is a critical part of living a complete and positive life. YOU get to decide what words and principles are used to describe you and define your life. How you speak about yourself is a foundational part of how you define yourself.
