Don’t know how to practice or inculcate it into your routine?

Here is how:

We all look in the mirror before leaving for work/college that’s a great time to practice affirmations, in which you recite powerful positive phrases while glancing at yourself in the mirror. It will not only energize you but also set a pace for your day.

Following are some simple examples, to begin with:

  1. Today is a happy day
  2. I am loved and cared for
  3. I am open to new experiences
  4. I am active and alive
  5. I am learning and growing each day

It is important to note that what works for one individual isn’t always going to work for you. Try and create your own personalized affirmations that begin with short but significant phrases. If you are struggling to come up with your own affirmations, reflect on what would you like to be a part of your personality, and what trait you want to develop for yourself this will guide you to a suitable phrase.
