Affirmations

 

Affirmations are positive words and phrases that you repeat to yourself on a regular basis to help you to think positively and feel good about yourself.

Affirmations are a way of affirming what you believe to be true, or want to be true. The more you repeat affirmations to yourself on a daily basis, the more you believe in what you are saying. If you affirm something negative or positive to be true, it is true!

Affirmations are a great way to increase your self-confidence, self-esteem and self-belief. The more you think of what you want in your mind and affirm it through repetition, the more chance it has of turning into something real. So, you need to start making sure that whatever you are affirming is going to work for you and make you feel good, successful and happy.

Put simply… ‘Whatever you think you are…. YOU ARE!’

 

Some examples of positive affirmations:

I love and approve of myself exactly as I am

Every day, in every way I’m getting better and better

I deserve the very best and accept it now

I am doing the best I possibly can and my best is good enough

It’s great to be me! There is only one me!

 

Have a go at making a list of your own affirmations. Write down a few right now! Then, stand in front of the mirror and say them to yourself. Even if it feels a little odd at first, persevere with it and it will become easier and easier. Say your affirmations twice daily in the morning and evening and notice the difference in yourself after just 14 days.
