We are bombarded by messages all day long - from advertising and marketing, from conversations with our fellow human beings, or just the stream of thoughts running through our own heads. I believe that you can turn a negative thought habit into a positive one using affirmations. 

The word affirmation comes from the root Latin word affirmare, which means "to make steady, strengthen, confirm." Using affirmations can help you reinforce positive aspects of your personality and your being and help to transform your life. Saying them aloud, hearing them in your own voice is a fantastic way to start rewiring your brain, generating positive emotions, and increasing the number of feel-good hormones in your system. 

Check out the affirmations below, and when you find one that resonates with you, begin a practice of saying it out loud several times a day - start your day on a positive note, and end it that way, too, by saying the affirmation before you go to sleep. After 21 to 28 days of consistent positive reinforcement, you will feel better, have a more positive outlook, and a new, positive habit you can keep for a lifetime!
