What is the 30 day affirmation challenge?
It's a challenge to change the way you think and feel. Out with the Negative, In with the Positive!
Often on the 1st of January resolutions are made, most only last a few weeks! Yet everyday is a new day, a new beginning and that's why this year I'm inspired to start each day declaring positive statements to influence the quality of life. I invite you to join me.

How can affirmations change my life?
The quality of our thoughts determines the quality of our lives, therefore it’s imperative that we control what we think! Whatever we intently focus on becomes our reality. Affirmations help to direct our focus. At first, you need to consciously practice your affirmations, however, in time they will become automatic. It is natural that your old beliefs/negative affirmations will come up but if you persist, the positive affirmations will become more powerful and it will be the reality you will experience.
What is an affirmation?
Every thought you think every word you say is an affirmation. All of our self-talk or inner dialogue is a stream of affirmations. We are continually affirming subconsciously with our words and thoughts and this flow of affirmations is creating our life experience in every moment. Our beliefs are just learned thought patterns that we have developed since childhood, many of these work well for us, but others may now be working against us, they are dysfunctional and may be sabotaging us from achieving what we believe we want.
Knowing and understanding this brings great power. From here we have the ability to input specific statements to target the subconscious mind and replace negative beliefs with positive ones.
How often do I practice affirmations?
How often you practice affirmations depends on the individual and how strong the old beliefs are that require change. There are no rules around it; they can be practiced one hundred times a day or 10 times a day. You could set a reminder in your phone or you could make an effort to practice at the following points of the day: on waking up in the morning, while brushing your teeth, when you get into the car before turning on the ignition, in the shower, while cooking dinner. The main idea is to practice them as often as you can.
How the challenge works?
Each day on the Facebook page a new affirmation will be listed for you to practice throughout the day. If you are not on Facebook, you can print of the below sheet that lists the 30 days of affirmations.
