This is a question everyone asks at times. It should be easy, right!! Unfortunately that is not always so.
Affirmations are groups of meaningful words, used for self improvement, that feed into your subconscious.
Years ago I used to use the affirmation “I’m not as bad as I think I am” because other affirmations just did not feel up to par for me. As dull as this sounds it actually started working. At first it would only help for an hour or so, but anything helps when you are down. I would say it over and over again whenever I felt depressed. Now I never use this phrase because I feel better than that! I am a true believer in affirmations!!
No worries, at first affirmations may only work for a few minutes, but over time they will work longer. They are simple to do and can change your life.
You can make up your own affirmation or find one on line. There are even books written containing 100’s of short phases you can use.
You can use them to lift up your mood, bring peace into your lift, turn failures in your life into achievements, or even to rid yourself of fears. There are so many uses for affirmations!
SAY them to yourself or out loud, WRITE them down, SING them, you may want to do this one in your car! Use ones that flow for you and are easy to remember.
They can be as simple as:
I Love My Life
I am Peaceful
I am Safe
I am Loved
I Think of Happy Thoughts
I Love my Job
I Feel Appreciated
Change is Good
I Love Who I am Right Now
You may not believe these words when you start, but that’s OK. After you SAY, WRITE, and or SING them regularly you will start to feel the healing. Be easy on yourself, it takes time.
Being negative is contagious! It will spread to the people around you. Someone has to make the decision to stop this cycle so why not let it be you.
