Positive Affirmations?

Monday, September 21, 2009

Have positive affirmations worked for you?

My inner sceptic has a hard time repeating,
"My body has an athletic form, and weighs the right and healthy weight,"
as suggested by Remez Sasson.

He writes, "Frequent repetitions make the subconscious mind accept them. . and then the subconscious mind takes charge. . . Such words evoke positive images in the mind."
-The Power of Affirmations - see link below

Doing this several times a day, on a daily basis, will create the mindset to achieve the healthy body that I want.

It seems simple enough. I believe in positive thinking so I am going to do it for a month & check back with you.

    I actually make myself write a positive statement a day in my journal and it helps me focus on what I like about myself.

    It's a good article, but I think I'd have a tough time not feeling some sarcasm when saying things that are not yet true. There's a part of me that would argue with the affirmation.

    My latest affirmation is "I AM IN CONTROL". It doesn't work all the time but it at least makes me stop and think.

    Good article, but I agree, that's a pretty long affirmation to say! They even say in the article the shorter the better.

    It is foreign to a shame-based perfectionist, but it makes a world of difference. Replacing the negative with the positive one affirmation at at time! Thanks for passing along the positive information.

    I generally do my best to think positively in the darker hours of my journey. I don't think I could repeat such a lengthy affirmation myself, but to each their own!
