AFFIRMATIONS FOR PERSONAL GROWTH AND SELF-IMPROVEMENT
Affirmations: How And Why They Work To Help You Change
An affirmation is a statement that you make to yourself. Everyone uses them intentionally or unintentionally. You wake up in the morning, jump out of bed and exclaim "I feel great". That is apositive affirmation. You drag yourself out of bed in the morning and whimper "I feel rotten". That is a negativeaffirmation. Both statements help to maintain the emotional state you are in.
Our self-talk, the things we say to ourself, is very important because it directly effects our conscious and subconscious mind. We listen to everything we say to ourself.
Because our affirmations work so well to maintain the state of mind we are in, we can use them to change that state of mind. True, it takes more work to change how we think and feel, but, if you follow these guidelines, the use of affirmations can become a strong, useful tool for helping yourself become happier and healthier.
