Lose weight, stick to your diet, work out regularly, get fit, enrich relationships and stick to your budget. All of these things are possible when you arm yourself with positive affirmations.
I sincerely believe in the positive force that is created through repeated affirmations. I like to say mine first thing in the morning, before I start my day. These declarations provide the boost that I need to get out there and make something wonderful happen.
Of course, I will admit that there are many things that are out of my control. All sorts of incidents have occurred in my life of which I have had no say so whatsoever. But one thing has remained constant. My faith, my belief that God is in control and that He created me to be someone special. My positive affirmations reinforce this belief and keep me strong in the face of adversity.
The fitness goals that I set for myself are within my control. But that does not make them any easier. Because the goals I have are not easy to attain, I need the positive effects of affirmations to help me stay focused to succeed.
These same affirmations can help you reach your goals, too. Daily affirmations are easy to fit into your busy schedule. All you need is about 5 minutes and the benefits can last throughout the day. Set aside this small amount of time, preferably in the morning.
It’s best to repeat your affirmations in front of a mirror and look at your reflection as you say them. You must believe it to achieve it.
So, if your goal is to lose weight then you should repeat affirmations such as:
I am losing weight.
I am eating healthy foods.
I will not overeat today.
I will eat 3 servings of fruit today.
My clothes look better because I am losing weight.
I will eat 3 servings of vegetables today.
My body is my temple.
I feel sexy when I eat healthy foods.
I feel confident that I can lose all the weight that I want.
Sound simple enough? Affirmations are one of the easiest parts of dieting and getting in shape. Put it to the test, but remember: you must believe it to achieve it.
Start your day on a positive note, set yourself up for success at the beginning of each day. Just 5 minutes of daily affirmations can put the positive force you need in everything you do.
