I posted last week about wanting to add morning affirmations or rituals to my morning routine. I wanted something where I took a few minutes before I start my day to make my intentions for the day known. To put my intention for the day out there into the universe. So it's been a few days & I have to say I find it actually makes a difference. It doesn't take me very long. Here's what I do it's very simple. I light a candle & then repeat each of these statements three times:
~ Today will be a good day
~ I will be patient today
~ I will feed my body not my mood
After that I blow out the candle. Simple right?
There are benefits linked to doing affirmations. I will list some benefits, but you can also check out the link above:
~ you use positive affirmations to direct your focus instead of negative self-talk
~ redirect your values
~ help formulate goals
~ conquer fears
Make sure your affirmations are self-developed, meaning they are ones you've come up with yourself that way they are more powerful, and will work better for you.
