Our mind is a powerful tool that can change and heal our bodies. The placebo effect is a prime example of this magic at work. Except that it is not so much magic, rather than actual science behind it. We all have the power to change and alter our subconscious just by our thoughts and our words.
To affirm is simply to say something positive. So, affirmations are sentences and statements that are positive and aim to change your beliefs at the conscious and subconscious levels.
If you have never used affirmations before, don’t worry, through this journal entry, we will go over the importance of affirmations, the benefits of using them (and there are a lot of benefits), how to easily implement affirmations in your day-to-day, and an example of a few easy affirmations you can use starting today.
What are affirmations?
In today’s world and society, we are constantly being judged, compared to, and exposed to an overload of information, whether on the news, social media or etc.
It is no wonder our minds are always overthinking and confused - constantly trying to adapt in an effort to fit in.
Unfortunately, it is easy for the mind to get trapped in this toxic cycle and lose its identity with false beliefs about the self and its surrounding. Affirmations are a powerful tool to counteract these beliefs and slowly heal the self, the mind, and the body. Not only are they powerful, but they are free, easy to use, and accessible to everyone.
