  • Affirmations for Wellbeing

July 06, 2020

What is an affirmation?

The word affirmation comes from the Latin affirmare, meaning "to make steady, or to strengthen."  An affirmation is a simple positive statement that aligns with how we want to feel.  Repeating affirmations in a relaxed, calm state encourages your subconscious thoughts to encourage a positive mindset and help overcome negative thoughts of self sabotage. 

How they work

Our brain thinks anything between 40,000 and 80,000 thoughts a day and most of these are negative.  We are continually fed a diet of negative news, which can hard wire us to focus on the worst outcomes in any situation. 

Repetition is the key word here - the more your use them, the more powerful the results.

Affirmations have become incredibly popular methods of self-improvement because of their ability to rewire our brains. Like exercise, the more we use them, the better they work as they raise the level of feel-good hormones and push our brains to form new clusters of “positive thought” and self belief. 

 

When to practice affirmations?

 

Affirmations can be practiced anytime! First thing in the morning before you get out of bed, in the shower, brushing your teeth or walking in nature.  Making affirmations a part of your daily routine is a wonderfully simple way to make a real impact on how we react to daily stressors.
