Affirmations are a tool we can use to redirect our thoughts and take control of our mindset. Affirmations are statements that can be used to literally retrain your brain. It’s science. When used regularly affirmations can reduce stress and anxiety while increasing resiliency and resistance to outer negativity. I have a weekly affirmation practice. I write 15 affirmations at the beginning of the week as a way to get focus and clarity on the direction I want the week to go. I write affirmations as a reminder of who I am and what I want. I write affirmations to ground myself when the world would unbalance me.
During the week when I face challenges I look to those affirmations. They define my values and guide me to resolution. Sometimes I will use one affirmation as a mantra in my head. Commonly it sounds like this in my head “I am mindful. I am not reactive.”
At my recent workshop retreat I did a guided affirmation exercise I created. I thought I would share it with you all. I created a guided affirmation template for you to use to help you manage a challenging moment and get refocused, or to jump start your affirmation practice. Use this guide to bring purpose, joy, and ease into your day.
