New year, new you. Sure we say that every year but this year we mean it, right? Whether it’s becoming a gym rat, finally getting that 4.0 or just being unapologetically yourself, we all have goals and positive affirmations can help achieve them.
Positive affirmations are positive statements that can change your way of thinking. They rewire your brain and replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts. Essentially, faking it until you make it. If you truly believe what you are saying then you will speak it into existence.
Research from Carnegie Mellon University suggests positive affirmations spoken at the beginning of the semester can increase grade point averages and help to problem solve under times of high stress. Speaking goals into existence doesn’t work without actually working for them, but it’s a step in the right direction towards the “new you”.
Choose the affirmations that resonate with you, speak them out loud, look at yourself in the mirror and say them until you believe them. We could all use a little positivity. Live your best life, today.
