Using active verbs keeps the energy upbeat and your focus in the present moment. So now your affirmation starts “I am [positive verb] …”
2. Include Positive Emotions
Think of how you want to feel when you reach your goal. Are you happy? Proud of yourself? Relaxed? Grateful? Make sure your affirmation makes you feel good when you say it out loud.
3. Keep it Short
Make your affirmations brief and memorable. Concise, focused statements are easier to remember.
4. Stay in the Present
Your affirmation should always be in the present tense. Make sure you use “I am” rather than “I will” statements.
5. Keep it Positive
Focus on what you want, not what you don’t want. Think of the positive result you want to achieve.
Instead of “I will lose weight and go to the gym every day,” let’s make it something that will make you feel good.
“I am enjoying getting slimmer and fitter every day.”
“I am feeling stronger and healthier by choosing a healthier lifestyle.”
“I am joyfully and easily helping my body to get stronger and slimmer every day.”
Play around with the words until they feel right for you. Just keep your affirmation in the present, focused on what you want and what feels good. Repeat your affirmations at least three times a day and look forward to manifesting the life you want.
