Learning to Support Yourself Through Positivity
We've all heard the expression that we are our own worst critics. But with a positive perspective, we can learn to become our most reliable support system.
The experts at Tranquil Shores are here to share the ways that a shift in perspective can help you along your wellness and recovery journey.
What is a Positive Affirmation?
An affirmation is a positive phrase that can help you to work past self-sabotaging or otherwise negative thoughts and feelings. As the saying goes, you speak things into existence. When you continue to repeat positive ideas to yourself, the more you believe them and make the necessary changes in your life to make them become true.
Although affirming is often considered to be a spiritual and magical ideal, research suggests that there are long-lasting positive effects of this practice. Some of the benefits of practicing positive affirmations regularly include:
- Lower stress levels.
- More receptive to feedback.
- More likely to make positive changes in face of constructive criticism.
- Improved productivity and concentration.
- Improved self-esteem and confidence.
