Start Using Your Own Affirmations Today!
Heard of using affirmations? But not sure what yours should be? Maybe we can inspire you.
Affirmations are a form of self-care that are becoming more and more popular. From meditation practices to hypnobirthing, affirmations are simple. A short sentence or statement that encourages positive thinking. So, this really could be anything.
No matter what you’re going through or what your situation is currently, affirmations can be crafted to reflect minor or major changes you’d like to make in your mindset. And, these days, who doesn’t need a little extra positivity in their lives!?
Is there any science behind affirmations?
PositivePsychology.com reported that yes, there actually is! Without diving into too much detail, there is plenty of neuroscience that points to the success of positive thinking in this way. For the science to work, it’s all about being regular and consistent when practising affirmations.
You’ve probably heard the phrase, ‘you are what you eat’. But what about, ‘you are what you think’? Because this is true too. Your thoughts become your reality. And if you’re into manifesting, you’ll know exactly what we mean by this! (And if not, don’t worry, we’ll be taking a closer look at manifesting very soon!).
