The year 2020 was a difficult one for many of us to live through since none of us have ever experienced a global pandemic. For some, the fall out of this pandemic was worse than others. You might have lost loved ones, your source of income, suffered ill-health, or more.
If you’re blessed to enter the new year, I offer you some affirmations to help lift your spirit and boost your mindset to be a more positive one, attracting a much more abundant and joyful 2021.
Affirmations, similar to mantras, are positive statements used to provoke a certain mindset, allowing you to improve your positivity, find more gratitude, and have more faith in your own potential and accomplishments. They are used to impress a thought unto your subconscious mind so that it begins to act upon the positive thought in your daily life. When you do this over and over again, you can actually change how you think, react, and behave, in a more positive and uplifting way.
4 Benefits of Using Affirmations
So, why would you want to use affirmations? To some people, it can seem silly just saying phrases to yourself every day, but until you start doing it, you really can’t imagine how powerful this is.
Every time you have a thought or think something, even without realizing it, you are tapping into your subconscious. You are telling yourself things, whether good or bad, and that can eventually change how you think, act, and react to people and situations in your life, and it damages your self-esteem drastically.
If you constantly have negative self-talk, you start to believe these lies about yourself,
But, what if you told yourself only positive things? Imagine the positive impact this could have on your life. Here are some of the many benefits of using positive affirmations in your daily life:
Promote Positive Thinking – Naturally, one of the best benefits of using affirmations is to think more positively. It doesn’t happen overnight, but the more positive self-talk you do with the help from affirmations, the more positive your thinking and mindset becomes.
Get More Inspiration – Have you been in a creative rut? Are you feeling very uninspired? Then affirmations can help! Using affirmations of a statement that has already come true (even though it hasn’t yet), puts it into your mind what you are capable of.
Example – ‘I will create something amazing today’.
Affirmations Improve Your Self-Esteem – One of the most damaging things about negative self-talk and constantly being down on yourself or your situation is that you start to believe it. It makes it hard for you to shift your thoughts to more positive ones. With positive affirmations, you can focus on the ones that improve your self-esteem and self-worth.
Become Aware of Your Own Thoughts – Affirmations also help you to understand a
little more about your own thoughts. You quickly become aware that you have been negative and not really channeling the power that your subconscious has on your life.
Ways to Use Affirmations
The great thing about affirmations is that not only do you create them yourself or pick from others that are beneficial for other people, but you can also choose how you want to use them. There are many ways, but here are a few ideas to get you started:
Have sticky notes on your mirror – This is an easy way to remember how to use them. Just write your best affirmations on sticky notes, and put them on your bathroom mirror. That way, every morning when you wake up, you can read them in the mirror. These are great for using them in the morning and at night.
Keep them by your bedside – If you want to use your affirmations in bed or immediately when you wake up, keep a notebook or journal by your bedside, and list the ones you want to use. You can even have different types of affirmations on different pages.
You can read them quietly or out loud, it is all about personal preference and what really helps you to focus on them.
