I'd like to share two exercises that I do on a daily basis to try and keep the positive vibes flowing inward. Continue after the jump...
When night comes, a lot of us find an onslaught of thoughts swimming through our sleepy little heads. Some of them aren't so nice. This is a perfect time to practice your I AM affirmations. It's quite easy: Start with I AM....then fill in the blank. KEEP IT POSITIVE. These also don't have to be true RIGHT THIS MINUTE. Wayne Dyer was talking about this, and he gave a great example: If you're an alcoholic struggling with addiction, your affirmation would be "I am sober." Maybe it's just something that you wish to be, but you state that wish with all your heart and it will happen. (Fake it till ya make it, folks!)
As I lay down tonight, my thoughts may go something like this:
I am smart.
I am loveable.
I am strong in mind, body, and spirit.
I am an athlete.
I am a healthy eater.
You get the idea....basically, you can be whatever you want-and I promise, you'll feel a little bit warm and fuzzier after some positive self-talk!
I know this was brief, but I wanted to introduce the topic. I'll get into it a little deeper sometime down the road:)
I would love for y'all to try this, and hear how/if it helps you!
