We are more than halfway through blogmas! Today we're talking about using mantras as a form of self care. We've all heard of mantras or positive affirmations as a way of focusing our minds on what we desire and evoking positive thoughts and emotions.
It's true when they say "what you focus on grows". If you always focus on the negative aspects of your life or on the stress in your life, you are going to create more of it. Your brain has what's called neuropathways that are like muscles, the more you use them the stronger they become. On average we have 12,000 thoughts per day, 90% of which are the same as the day before. Unless you are consciously putting an effort into choosing the thoughts that support your growth and wellbeing, your mind will automatically focus on thoughts that are most familiar (which isn't always a good thing).
To help you shift your focus and create the thoughts and emotions that are of your highest good, I'm sharing some of my favorite tips for creating POWERFUL and EFFECTIVE affirmations.
See you tomorrow for day NINE of Blogmas!
