What are Positive Affirmations?

You might be wondering what on earth I’m on about – what are affirmations? Well, it’s simple really. Affirmations are sentences that speak to your inner self, your subconscious and your conscious mind.

By taking positive words and saying them to ourselves, reminding ourselves of positivity, you can begin to believe the words and really live a more mindful and positive life. The affirmations bring up mental images that would motivate, energise and inspire us.

The more you repeat the positive affirmations, the more you genuinely believe them. You will be equipped with the positive words and the next time you start to doubt yourself, or you have a really bad day, instead of focusing on the negative and pulling yourself down mentally, the positive mindset and memory of the affirmations will remind you that it’s just that. One Bad Day. Not A Bad Life. 

And to be honest, we could all do with a little reminder to be kind to ourselves and cut ourselves some slack! We are all pretty bad at dealing with negative self-doubt thoughts, as well as the ever-present mom guilt! So …let’s try do something positive for ourselves.
