How Do I Use An Affirmation?
Everyone is different, so everyone’s way of using an affirmation will be different too. Yet if you’ve not quite worked out how best to go about this and you want to use affirmations for personal growth, one of the best techniques is to set them in the present, saying ‘I am’ at the start. Then, stand in front of a mirror and repeat the affirmation you’ve chosen at least ten times, twice a day.
How Do I Choose An Affirmation?
When you want to choose an affirmation, the best place to start is with the most negative thought you have about yourself. It might be how you look, it might be a lack of confidence, it could be anything at all – anything that you would improve if you could take your personal development in hand. Turn that negative on its head and into a positive, always starting with ‘I am’.
What Do Affirmations Do To The Brain?
Affirmations aren’t magic; they work thanks to the power of psychology. When you practice affirmations every day, you will begin to wake the reward area of the brain. When you say your affirmations, you’ll feel good because your brain links those words to a positive feeling. As a result, you’ll be much more likely to notice positive things happening around you, and that feeling will continue.
