Tips for Using Affirmations
What are affirmations? Affirmations are empowering statements that reorient your emotional compass from down to up. When you affirm your power, you choose to
create and live that positive reality.
What Research Says
A study by the Mayo Clinic reports that a positive attitude can improve your health, including:
Increased longevity and energy.
Fewer limitations due to pain.
A greater sense of peace and happiness.
(Source: Mayo Clinic Proceedings, August 2002.)
More Americans are using mind-body treatments—45 percent of adults have used some method of prayer for health reasons. (Source: National Center for
Complementary and Alternative Medicine, 2002.)
82 percent of Americans believe that prayer can change what happens in a person’s life. (Source: Barna Research Group.)
What Vicky Thompson Says
Affirmations remind you that actions follow intentions. When your intentions are clear, you’re better able to recognize self-defeating actions and behaviors that
are not in alignment with your goals. Affirmations are like guideposts, keeping you on the path to achieving your intended resolutions.
Make your intentions even stronger by meditating and visualizing yourself as a powerful person. Affirmations clarify your thoughts while meditations enable you to
see yourself performing your chosen actions.
Here are three simple steps for using affirmations to develop a can-do attitude:
1. Be here now. Be aware of the blessings in your life, including friends to laugh with, family to lean on, and others who value you in their lives. Affirm
these abundances by saying, I am blessed everyday in all ways.
2. Have an attitude. When a zipper breaks, you can get angry or go shopping. Only you can choose how to view life’s ups and downs. Affirm your resiliency by
saying, I choose love and happiness in this moment.
3. Speak the language. Find positive things to say about others rather than grumping. Share your positive outlook and affirm the best in others by saying, Thanks
for being a good friend.
