If you really think small, your world will be small.
If you think big, your world will be big.

Hello everyone.
In life we face lot of emotions on daily basis. Sometimes good and at times bad. We go through lot of ups and downs, due to which our emotions are always on a roller-coaster ride. Specially with current pandemic situation, we all are feeling a bit gloomy. We all are emotionally down because somehow our life is not going the way we want or the way we have planned it to go. In such situation it is very difficult to stay positive and feel confident about yourself. In such times how to keep those self sabotaging thoughts and stress away from us?

What are affirmations?
Affirmations are positive statements that we tell our self repeatedly to challenge our sub-conscious mind to stay in a positive mindset despite of the situation. Its a way to keep the negative thoughts at bay.

“I am happy.”
“I am confident.”
“I am good at what I do.”
“I am worthy.”
“I am enough.”
“I am healthy.”

These are a few simple examples of affirmations. It can vary on with situations and person of-course. Saying such statements to yourself every day can boost your confidence as well as can make your mind work in extraordinary ways. Its kind of meditating when you say those affirmations to yourself. You can do this early morning or at night before going to sleep. Or anytime that works for you. But do this in a clam state of mind.

Some people do this when they are meditating, saying in mind again and again. But you can say it to yourself out load or by writing it down in a journal everyday. Motive is to say it as many times till it takes to believe it by heart. I usually write it down in my journal everyday in the morning. I list down all the things I am grateful about and then I write all the affirmations I need and say it in my mind.

Honestly I feel it is life changing. After doing it every day you will experience a change in your mood and in your state of mind as well. Those positive affirmations makes you believe in your self and eventually you can see the change in yourself. With each day you will be more confident in achieving your goals. Suddenly you will realize that the things that used to make you nervous or stressed will seem much easier. It is our subconscious mind that starts believing that we can do it and directs our actions in the right direction.

I have been doing this from a long time and I can say it with guarantee that it really does works. Try observing the areas you feel weak or the areas of your life that you want to change. And keeping those areas in focus, and writing down positive reinforcing statements on a piece of paper. Then read those statements to yourself everyday as many times as you can. And then see the change yourself.
