4 Tips – How to Write Positive Affirmations
Why Writing Affirmations Works
Our beliefs are just patterns we have developed over the years. Many things shape our beliefs throughout our lives. Some of these may be supportive and nurturing, while others might be roadblocks on our path to happiness.
Positive affirmations can help you transform barriers into supportive and encouraging truths.
You can use positive affirmations to keep you moving forward. These four tips will help you to develop your skills of writing positive affirmations that work.
1. Make a list of your ideas
If you want to improve your life, you need to take the time to jot down what you want.
Write down what you’d like it to look like and what you need to do more.
Look at the things you wrote down and write a few positive things based on your vision.
2. Activate the present tense
Write your affirmations in the present tense. Think about how you’d like to feel right now.
Don’t use words like, “within two months.” You’re telling yourself that you’re still two months away from your goal every time you use this affirmation.
After a month, you’ll still be saying “within two months,” which tells your mind that you haven’t made any progress.
3. Keep your eye on the prize
Rather than focusing on what you want in life, write your affirmations so that they focus on what you want.
So, instead of writing “I am not addicted to alcohol“, it would be better to write “I am completely free from alcohol.“.
It is easy to write an affirmation in the positive when you imagine you already have accomplished whatever it is you wish to achieve and describe yourself as such.
4. Enjoy the Process of Affirmation Writing
Take time to enjoy the writing process and don’t get caught up in the details.
Try to relax and have fun during the process.
