How To Use The Affirmations?
Positive Affirmations are self-activation and self-help tools. Affirmations can be more effective when you repeat them standing up after doing the following:
A- Prepare Yourself
Before you start reciting an affirmation, do the following steps to activate all parts of your brain, body, and spirit:
Physical activities: Recall the last time you won something or achieved something? Do you remember how you felt physically? Recall that feeling within your physical body. At the same time, stand like a hero. Or like an athlete after winning a race, putting your hands up in a winning position for two minutes. Or do any physical activity that feels good to you.
Mental calculations: Add two numbers. Subtract two numbers. And multiply two numbers.
Sing a little song: Choose a song that reminds you that you are a wonderful person, and sing it to yourself.
Imagine colors: Recall the last time that you were delighted. What color do you remember? Close your eyes, take this color with your hands, put it in front of you, make it bigger, then wrap yourself within it.
Smile and Laugh: Recall something that made you happy, think about it and let it make you laugh again or smile big.
Now pick an affirmation and say it five times a day for 30 days. It can be helpful if you can choose a specific time to recite your affirmations.
Such as; (1) as soon as you wake up, (2) at breakfast time, (3) at lunchtime, (4) at dinner time, and (5) before going to sleep, or on a schedule that works best for you.
Take one minute after reciting an affirmation to visualize and imagine yourself achieving the result that you just repeated as an affirmation.
