Read the set of related affirmations below aloud. It’s important to your conscious and subconscious mind to hear the affirmations said in your own voice. Choose one or two of the affirmations from the set to start working with. You only need one or two affirmations, used consistently, to make a substantial change in your life.

Choose one affirmation that feels easy to you and choose another that generates resistance or disbelief. The idea is to practice extending your current self-imposed limits and encourage growth.

Say your chosen affirmation loud enough for your mind to hear your voice saying the words and take notice of how you feel as you begin and as you continue your practice. Repeat your chosen affirmation multiple times a day for at least 30 days and reinforce your affirmation by writing it in your journal.

You can change your life by beginning an affirmation practice – using one or two favorite affirmations over the course of 30 to 60 days can permanently change your mindset and your life.

Our modern world, as wondrous as it is, also contains a LOT of reasons to be anxious. Everyday situations relating to our work or business, our personal state of emotional or physical health, and the state of the world around us (coronavirus epidemic, anyone?) is enough to bring on feelings of anxiety.

Worrying about the future is a common reason for anxiety – so much of what we look forward to is out of our individual control. Feeling anxious isn’t always a bad thing – nervousness about the unknown is uniquely and reasonably human – but if those very normal feelings start to interfere with your daily life and adversely affect your health, it’s time to take positive, intentional action to relieve them.

You can’t live your best, most authentic life if you’re dealing with all-consuming fears that affect your daily life and activities. To help ease your anxiety, consider including one or two of the affirmations below in your daily practice. Read through the list of affirmations and choose just one or two to begin with – read them aloud and see which ones resonate with your mind, heart and spirit.

Once you have chosen your target affirmations, begin your practice. Say the affirmations out loud when you start your day, mid-way through your daily activities, and again before you retire for the day. Continue this practice for at least 30 days and use your journal to record your reflections and feelings. Expect that you’ll feel better and you likely will, but journaling about your feelings will help you to refine and show evidence of the positive effects of your efforts.

Comment below this post that you’ve started this practice and let me know how you’re doing, and give yourself the grace and time to truly apply one or two of these affirmations to your life. You’ll be glad you did.
