Do you use affirmations? I admit that I've been pretty skeptical in the past. But given what I have learned about neuroscience, I've changed my mind.
Neuroscience tells us that our brain responds to the thoughts we have - just like worrying can activate the stress response, what we say to ourselves via our thoughts and spoken words activates various neurotransmitters, setting off all types of body signals. Using positive affirmations activates the reward centers of your brain and, with enough repetition, can actually change your brain - a process known as neuroplasticity. Also exciting... studies have shown that the use of affirmations can increase a sense of hopefulness (we could all use a boost of hope), can lower stress, and have even been shown to improve academic performance!
I invite you to stand up, get your feel solidly planted on the ground and read these aloud. Maybe add some great music in the background, invite...
