Number 1 Way to Turn off Stress
Sample Positive Affirmations
You must not under any pretense allow your mind to dwell on any thought that is not positive, constructive, optimistic, or kind.
You may not have experience using positive affirmations and it may seem awkward or even silly to you at first. However, remember your thoughts determine your mood and your mood creates hormones that cascade throughout your body.
This has nothing to do with a mind over matter philosophy. It has been proven by scientific research that there is a mind-body connection. To turn off unhealthful stress hormones you must redirect negative thoughts. Reviewing your own positive affirmations has shown to be an effective way of achieving an attitude of inner calm.
Affirmations work best when written in the present tense. It helps to adopt positive believing as well as positive thinking as you embrace these words. Make a commitment to create your own list of personal positive affirmations, and to review them at least three times a day (preferably out loud). Make a commitment to do this for 60 days – it will change your life, it will change your health.
The following is a sample list. Use the affirmations that are comfortable to you. Feel free to change the wording to adopt it as yours.
Affirmations affirm the person you are today and the person you want to become.
