Positive affirmations work. They take some time but they work. The key is to whole-heartedly and fully believe in what you are saying or hearing or writing. As Louise Hay stresses in her book You Can Heal Your Life, you have to affirm what you want with as much intention and belief as you would express what you don’t want.
Building a daily habit of positive affirmations will eventually lead you to change the behavior or thought patterns you wish to delete, alter or enhance. Here are 3 easy ways to practice positive affirmations throughout your busy day.
1. Listen to a recording to and from your commute or before going to bed. I like this one by David McGraw. It has 500 positive affirmations in 45 minutes. https://youtu.be/0lkCrPjmwks
2. Scribble your affirmations down on a piece of paper when you have a spare minute, perhaps while listening to a mind numbing meeting, waiting for your food at a restaurant or waiting in line.
3. Say your affirmations while doing self-nurturing activities: while putting on lotion, while combing your hair or perhaps while getting dressed in the morning.
