Why do words of affirmations work?
Science has proven smiling as an immediate effect on your mood by increasing dopamine levels. Positive words of affirmation work the same way for our brains. Our thoughts program our beliefs, and our beliefs direct our actions. When we fill our minds with positivity, we begin to believe in ourselves and move forward with love instead of fear.
What are the benefits?
As someone who has once suffered a series of panic attacks and high anxiety levels, I use this tool when I begin to feel a panic attack rising. By saying an affirming statement out loud, I immediately feel the edge lessen.
It is our choice whether we want to live a life through the lens of stress or love. When we choose to operate from an abundance mindset, we can let moments, good or bad, flow into our lives with ease. We begin to realize challenging moments are there to teach us something and good moments are there to teach us gratitude.
How do I create positive affirmations?
Start with creating a routine to practice positive affirmations. This must be done every day to re-shift our mindset to positivity. Remember, you are changing the way you think and elevating your vibrations. This takes practice and consistency.
My routine begins when I wake up every morning. I go through a specific set of affirmations based on what I need to hear to get me through whatever challenges I face.
