Well Mind Affirmation

Well Mind Affirmation

When you’re on the road and regularly away from home, practising AFFIRMATION will prepare your mind to be focused, productive and well every day.

Why it matters

  • AFFIRMATIONS are short, powerful, positive statements of ACTION that you start your day with and repeat through the day.
  • Repeating affirmations when you first wake up tells your brain how you want to live through your day. (takes 30 seconds).
  • Repeating affirmations through the day keeps you focused and productive. (takes 10 seconds).
  • Repeat affirmations while you are driving or at a rest stop.

What should I do?

Tips for effective affirmations:

  • Prepare your affirmation in advance.
  • Write your affirmation in your phone or small notebook you can keep in your pocket. Your affirmation should be a short, sharp and focused on now (I am instead of I’m going to).
  • List your negative qualities and flip them in your affirmations: if you are stressed and angry your affirmation could be “I am stress free and calm”.
  • Experiment with how different affirmations make you feel. Choose the affirmation that leads to you feeling focused and confident.
  • As you repeat your affirmation, imagine yourself as that person. If your affirmation is “I am stress-free and calm” – imagine yourself as that stress-free and calm person.
  • Repeat your affirmation with energy and a smile (science shows this magnifies the benefits of your affirmation).
  • Make your affirmation part of your routine. Repeat your affirmation as though you mean it (with energy and a smile), even when you don’t feel like you mean it. (“Fake it till you make it”).
  • Repeat the affirmation throughout the day – schedule it. Team it with taking deep breaths for double benefit.
  • Change your affirmations when you need to flip a different negative quality about yourself.
