I was introduced to the idea of affirmations about 20 years ago by a fan
of Louise Hay’s work. The basic premise is that through using affirmations, one can change one’s life – dramatically.
I’ve dipped into affirmations every now and again, but have never truly engaged with the concept fully… until now.
I propose an experiment: one month of daily affirmations, and let’s see if it does, in fact, change anything. How do we measure this? It’s not like there’s an affirmation effectiveness scale. So, what I am doing is jotting down in my paper journal (yes, I still use those) all the things I am experiencing that are not so positive on the emotional side of things. For example: lack of confidence, brain fog, tiredness, it’s tough concentrating and focusing my attention, plus there is a bit of emotional unease in the form of very mild depression, some anxiety and mood swings.
For this experiment, I will be using an affirmation video I found on YouTube:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgEvA146PiA
For 8 minutes each day from today until 22 September, I will use the video, say the affirmations out loud and check in with myself to see if there is any improvement. I’ll post on my progress halfway through.
