Tips on Affirmations

Try to repeat your affirmations five to ten minutes a day with loud energy.  It is also best to set these intentions in the beginning of the day, early morning or right before you go to bed. The general rule for an affirmation is to say them three times a day for thirty days. Affirmations help overcome negative thoughts. As college students, we encounter many types of stressors. Look for an affirmation to say daily as it has been proven it will reduce stress. It only takes one positive thought to change your whole outlook, especially when change is needed in your life. Positive thoughts are reinforced by affirmations and once you bring your attention to a positive thought, focus on it and let it become an affirmation for yourself. You can now use this positive thought for your own self care affirmation. These affirmations can be said outloud or in your mind as long as you are actively thinking about them they will only help you in a positive way.  This positive reinforcement can change your life and remind you of of the strong and happy intentions you want in yourself.

Why affirmations?

The reason why affirmations work is because they focus on the conscious level in your mind. This allows your mind to believe these words are the truth once repeated several times. When you want to start a change in your life, start with a simple thought as it will create your path of desire. There are many benefits in having positive affirmations in your life, and continuing them daily will bring less stress to your life and decrease your anxiety. Staying focussed on a positive thought is key. It decreases anxiety because you start to remember these affirmations throughout the day realizing, “I am enough” or, “I love the fact so many people have faith in me”. An affirmation a day is life changing. They are a great practice for self love and teach you values to live by. Practice what you believe in and take the time for this type of self care, you won’t regret it.
