Positive Affirmations – Emotional support or encouragement.

What Are Affirmations?

Affirmations are sentences aimed to affect the conscious and the subconscious mind. The words
composing the affirmation, automatically bring up related mental images into the
mind, which could inspire, energize and motivate. Repeating affirmations, and the resultant mental
images, affect the subconscious mind. That, in turn, influences the behavior, habits, actions and
reactions.

What Affirmations Do?
  • motivate.
  • keep the mind focused on the goal.
  • influence the subconscious mind and activate its powers.
  • change the way you think and behave
  • Positive statements make you feel positive, energetic and active, and therefore, put you in a better position to transform your inner and external worlds.

An affirmation is a short, powerful statement.

So, an affirmation is firmly declaring a positive thought and assertively stating it as a truth.
Positive thinking is a powerful tool that can improve:

  • health
  • help manage stress
  • overcome challenges
  • make better choices.
Simple Steps for Developing a Positive Self-Affirmation Habit in Kids
Therefore, if you’d like to practice self-affirmation with your kids, here are a few simple steps you can try:
  • Be a model. Children imitate their parents. If you want your kids to start practising self-
    affirmation, they need to see you practicing it.
  • Explain to your children why it’s important to develop a positive self-affirmation habit.
  • Choose a specific time when you want to practice using self-affirmation and keep it short. Don’t
    make the period too long. Ten minutes a day is quite sufficient.
  • Gratitude exercises are an easy way to start. Asking your kids to state the things for which they
    are grateful for and participating in these exercises is one way to start. You can set a specific
    time where everyone takes turns speaking of the things they are grateful for. You can also give your kids a gratitude journal and keep one yourself.
  • If you prefer to use positive affirmations, remember to make them realistic, specific and
    explanatory. If the affirmations are inconsistent with your kids’ internal beliefs, they will do
    more harm than good. An example of a good affirmation for kids is “I am a good communicator
    because I read at least one book every week”.
  • Work on one affirmation at a time. Affirmations only work when they are repeated regularly. therefore, practice for at least an entire week.
