Whether you own your own business, a stay at home Mom, are climbing the ladder in your career, or staying on top of your studies, Sunday's are reset days. Reseting and recharging your mind on a Sunday will help you throughout the week!
Affirmations are positive statements that can help you to challenge and overcome self-sabotaging and negative thoughts. When you repeat them often, and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes.
You might consider affirmations to be unrealistic "wishful thinking." But try looking at positive affirmations this way: many of us do repetitive exercises to improve our physical health. I know I do my cardio daily and incorporate repetitive weight training for weight loss. So think of it like this, affirmations are like exercises for our mind and outlook. These positive mental repetitions can reprogram our thinking patterns so that, over time, we begin to think – and act – differently.
Affirmations can help you to perform better at work. According to researchers, spending just a few minutes thinking about your best qualities before a meeting that's making you nervous. Affirmations can help calm your nerves, increase your confidence, and improve your chances of a successful outcome.
What's more, affirmations have been used to successfully treat people with low self-esteem, depression, and other mental health conditions. And they have been shown to stimulate the areas in our brains that make us more likely to effect positive changes in regard to our health.
So, for example, if you're worried that you eat too much and don't get enough exercise , using affirmations to remind yourself of your values can spur you on to change your behavior.
Here at The Beaute Loft, we use affirmations daily. You should try and incorporate them in your everyday routines as well!
