Adding to last week’s blog we’re back at affirmations (again)!!
We’ve been here before via a couple of previous blogs so let’s review what a successful affirmation is. A successful affirmation occurs when you:
- make a declarative statement using yourself in the present tense
- state in an empowering way what you do want
- are clear and specific
- elicit emotion and feeling
- keep it simple, if possible, in one sentence
In last week’s blog, of the 5 (1a to 1e examples listed), the affirmations arising from them might look like:
- I am sleeping soundly and awakening feeling more rejuvenated after getting to bed only 15 minutes earlier each night.
- I love my meditations and have started to add longer ones in during the week. My mind is centered and at peace. My vitality is at 8/10.
- Choosing sobriety, I love how much more I am getting done each day. I am clear headed and focused, which I love.
- My menu planning is terrific as my body, inside and out, feels really good from eating really good food. I especially love my morning juicing. My food is high quality information entering my body.
- I am fully enjoying my return to Bikram yoga and boot camps twice weekly, I feel relaxed, more flexible and stronger.
So play around with your affirmations. Write them down and read them throughout the day. Post them in a place where you will see them often. If stated out loud that’s even better!
