Maybe the first name that comes to mind when you think of affirmations is Louise Hay, but maybe the first name you think of should be your own.
What exactly are affirmations, anyway? Simply this: something that you tell yourself, over and over.
We all use affirmations every single day, whether we know it or not. Of course, there are positive ones, and there are negative ones. Which ones are you using?
Today, for example, did you tell yourself:
- I am too fat.
- I am such an idiot!
- I am always late.
Try to catch yourself when you are saying something negative to yourself, and flip it.
- I am comfortable in my body.
- I am a deliberate learner.
- I am leaving 5 extra minutes to get to my appointments.
The words that come after “I am” are very powerful. Make them work for your highest good.
