Affirmations are positive statements that can help you to challenge and overcome self sabotaging negative thoughts. When you repeat them often, and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes.
Sometimes when you first start using positive affirmations it can feel a bit silly and like wishful thinking, but when you truly integrate the practice they become much like exercise.
Many of us use repetitive actions and movements to improve our physical health, so you can start to look at how using repetitive affirmations can act as exercise for your mind, improving your mental wellbeing. These positive mental repetitions can start to reprogram our thinking so that we can start to think, act and behave differently.
