Prepare for your day by setting a daily affirmation.
by GABBIE KEERAN, CSU Public Relations Intern
This week I want to talk about daily affirmations.
A daily affirmation is a simple, positive statements declaring specific goals in their completed states. Although they sound rather basic at that level, these empowering mantras have profound effects on the conscious and unconscious mind.
Setting a daily affirmation boosts confidence and fires inspiration. How do you write a daily affirmation?
Fostering a belief that “a positive mental attitude supported by affirmations will achieve success in anything.”
- I believe in, trust and have confidence in myself.
- I know, accept and am true to myself.
- I eat well, exercise regularly and get plenty of rest to enjoy good health.
Pull out your journal and write down your daily affirmation. Putting your affirmation into writing each day is key to tracking your progress. If you don’t have a journal, write it on a sticky note to refer back to as the day progresses. At the end of each day, go back into your journal to revisit your affirmation. Ask yourself, “Did my affirmation help me today? What can I do to improve my life?”
Affirmations can be thought of as an exercise for your mind, just like physical activity is for your body. Results will come, just be patient.
