Affirmations are a powerful tool to help focus your thoughts and remove negative thinking. Using affirmations daily is a great way to start your day off on the right foot and make sure you are dismissing any worries before they even get the chance to set in.
Luciana and I both use affirmations to help us remain grounded and positive, so when we came across this product from Mål Paper we knew we had to share it with you.
And even better, Mål Paper have collaborated with us to offer one reader the chance to win an affirmation deck for yourself. Read on to the end of this blog post to enter the giveaway.
What are Affirmations?
So what are affirmations? If you have heard of this concept but are not sure what it all involves, we will share a quick and simple explanation.
Affirmations are statements that affirm something about ourselves. They are sometimes called “positive self-talk” or “self-affirmations.”
The word affirmation comes from Latin affirman meaning “to establish.” Affirmations work by establishing new thoughts or beliefs in your subconscious mind so that they eventually become true
How to use Affirmations
To use affirmations, you will focus on these positive statements about yourself and repeat them again and again until they form a belief. This can be done gradually. You will not magically change your thoughts in a few days, but over time as the affirmations are repeated or you take some time to focus on a specific affirmation, slowly by surely you will begin to feel a change or a shift in your mindset.
These affirmation statements can be worded as I am, I have, I do, or I will. The goal is to make them feel more real by repeating them with conviction until they feel true.
The power of affirmations
When you use affirmations regularly, this practice can have the effect of changing your attitude or behaviour. It is so simple, but it really can work! The thoughts in our mind affect us more than we sometimes realise and by taking a few moments to focus on this simple positive statements, we are taking the first steps towards re-writing the negative or unwanted self believes that we may have developed at some stage in our lives.
Using affirmations with kids is also a very powerful tool as you are building them up with this positive way of thinking right from the start – what a great gift to start out in life with self confidence and self believe.
