A Beginner’s Guide to Positive Thoughts

The definition of an affirmation is as follows: “Affirmations in New Thought and New Age terminology refer primarily to the practice of positive thinking and self-empowerment—fostering a belief that "a positive mental attitude supported by affirmations will achieve success in anything." Wikipedia

 

This has been something you may have heard of before and wondered what it meant and how you can incorporate them into your life. Affirmations are something that can be easily incorporated into routine or a great way to start a routine which is achievable 5-10minutes daily.

 

Affirmations are very powerful as they might be things you already belief or aspects of your life that you struggle with but are working on a specific aspect. IE: for my I know over the last year with a brand-new mom I utilized this skill to help stay positive about being a first-time parent. I don’t know how many times I told myself I am a strong, patient mother!

 

Here is the process in which you can create your own affirmations, or I have included a variety of commonly used phrases.

HOW TO WRITE POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS:

  1. Always phrase your affirmations in the present tense such as “I am…” “I feel…” NEVER: “I will” or “I am going to.”
  2. Always phrase your affirmation in the positive way for example “I am always on time” rather than “I am never late”
  3. Be clear and concise
  4. Suspend doubt – create a feeling of belief and intensity when repeating your affirmations
  5. Focus on creating something new rather than changing your feelings. In other words accept that you have done the best you could with your emotional state, level of knowledge and awareness that you have had. Now as you expand your consciousness and your approach to life, you can create a life that is richer, better, more fulfilling.

Positive thinking is a powerful tool that can improve your health, help you manage stress, overcome challenges, and make better daily decisions. Everyone from a just talking child to adults can benefit from improving their positive thinking skills! The idea is that by changing the thinking, you can control your emotions, feelings, actions and even your reactions to different aspects in life. Positive thinking skills often start with positive-self talk, which means using the voice in your head to say positive thoughts about yourself or the current situation. Kids and young adults, in particular, always could use more positive thinking in their lives. Beginning to think more positively, kids can learn to believe in themselves and work towards their individual potentials.

Happy affirmation writing, this process will help you become more confident and believe in yourself and what you are doing.
