Using affirmations is a positive life tool that can change the mind’s self-talk by reaffirming the determination to achieve a higher sense of well-being.
This process takes several repetitions over a period of time. It is best done either first thing in the morning or before bed. It is at this time when the body is in a relaxed state and the subconscious mind is most receptive. Set aside 10-15 minutes for your affirmations and follow the steps below:
Make a mental note that this time is set aside for you to find inner-peace.
Go to a quiet place to retreat and sit in a comfortable, relaxed position.
Take a deep, slow breath in through the nose and hold it for a second or two and then release the breath out slowly through the mouth. Repeat this step a few times.
Feel the muscles in your body becoming relaxed.
Repeat the well-being affirmations first out loud and then quietly in your mind.
Continue repeating the affirmations throughout the day, several times a day. (Tip: to make it easier, write the affirmations down and carry them with you).
Repeat the following 10 Positive Affirmations for Optimal Well-Being :
I love and accept myself for who I am.
I attract amazing people in my life.
I create my own reality and happiness.
My body gets all the nutrients it needs.
I have a strong need to nourish my body with healthy food.
I feel good about myself mentally, physically and spiritually.
I am doing the best I can with the tools available to me.
I do not let other people's negativity influence me.
My wisdom guides me to make the right choices.
The past has no power over me and I set myself free.
These affirmations provide the mind with powerful and positive support. They tell the subconscious mind to start believing in its ability to maintain or create a healthy lifestyle. These will become your daily mantras, reassuring the body and mind that it is capable of a living a life filled with optimal health. The more frequently the affirmations are repeated, the more the subconscious is being programmed to believe it.
