Affirmations

Leave a comment

At the end of my classes – I pass around a Ball jar filled with little strips of paper. I tell the class, “Take whichever one makes your fingertips tickle.” intention jar

They walk away with an affirmation. It may seem silly, but I believe in the POWER.OF.WORDS. What we say to ourselves goes straight to our subconscious mind and can make a huge difference in our life outlook.

Imagine telling yourself all of the time, “That was dumb. Why do I always do such dumb things? I am so stupid.”

Firstly…ack. It makes my heart hurt. But think about how much of this subconscious negative self-talk we engage in. About our bodies…about our minds…about our faces…about our interactions. We BOMBARD our inner self with negative zingers all the time.

What if we stopped? What if we changed our words to affirm ourselves, to love ourselves, to comfort ourselves, to build ourselves up? What if the words we poured into our minds and bodies and spirits were beautiful and loving?

I think we’d be a hell of a lot happier. Inside and out.  And happiness? That’s part of wellness.

I put the words from those little strips of paper on some beautiful flowers my daughter colored. And every day for the month of September, I’ll send them to your e-mailbox.  If you’re interested, please send me your e-mail address in the subject line to turinofitness@gmail.com

In the interim, see if you can start catching the negative and stop it. Then see if you can insert some gentle, some love, some sweet care.

Namaste, S
