Have you heard the word Affirmation passed around lately and you don't have a clue what it means? Well an affirmation is a statement designed to create self-change in the lives of those who use them.
They can act as inspiration, as well as everyday reminders. They also serve to focus attention on goals throughout our day.
Our brain is constantly changing depending on things such as our habits, thoughts and behaviours this leads our brains to make new neurological pathways.
We can think of our brain as an extraordinarily bustling city with lots of roads and pathways that are connected and light up every time we think, feel, or do something. Some of these roads are well traveled. These are our habits, our established ways of thinking, doing, and feeling. Every time we make a choice, practice a particular task, or feel a specific emotion, we strengthen this road, and it becomes easier for our brain to travel this pathway.
Affirmations can help develop your brain to believe what you're saying and start putting it into practice.
Practice affirming yourself every day. ACTION IS KEY.
