Our mind learns fastest with what is called "massed practice". Repeating the same affirmation five times in a row is "massed practice". The problem is that it also produces quick forgetting. "Spaced practice", the process of repeating all the affirmations three or more times during the day, produces slow learning and slow forgetting. Combining both "massed and spaced" practice gives us the best of both: fast learning and slow forgetting.
Saying it with feeling adds another psychological dimension to the affirmation. Any thought that has an emotion attached to it will have a greater impact on our mind that an idea devoid of feeling.
Another variation you can use to strengthen the effect of the affirmation is to add a visualization to it. This will make your affirmation significantly more effective. Do this by taking one of your affirmation sessions and instead of saying the affirmations, close your eyes and visualize yourself doing or being like the affirmation says. The visualization adds another dimension of power to your affirmation.
You should also use your affirmations whenever you catch yourself using negative self-talk. Start repeating your positive affirmations as soon as possible.
Used correctly, affirmations for personal growth and self improvement can help you relieve your depression, anxiety and fear and anger.
