Daily Affirmations – Day 7

After a long and crazy weekend, most of us just want some quiet time. But here it is, Sunday night, and most of us are getting up early to head back to work which leaves us no time to just sit calmly and quietly.

But as you head back to work or school tomorrow I want you to reflect on this affirmation:

I am in control of my world and my body. I am responsible for myself. I release this unnecessary stress and allow my body and mind to relax into a comfortable state of being. I am calm and relaxed. I have a positive and optimistic mental attitude.

One thing that I like to do when I drive into the office is put my ear buds in and listen to podcasts. I love Stitcher Radio and I listen to happiness and self development podcasts. It really relaxes me and puts my mind in a positive place.

I also try to take some meditation and breathing breaks. I usually say something similar to the affirmation above. I repeat it until I start to feel better. Try it out!

And remember when you start your day tomorrow… be open, stay positive and embrace all that life has given you. You always have the choice to change something you are not happy with!

Be Beautiful, Be Healthy, Be You!

Your perfect day! An exercise to help make your dreams come true!

Happy Saturday night! I am a little late for today’s affirmation… but there is no better time for a daily affirmation! Affirmation’s can happen any time during the day or night – there is no rule on this! I tend to write my daily affirmation’s in the morning since I am in reflecting mode then. Coffee, pen, paper… I feel confident, powerful and ready to tackle anything!

But the night is also a powerful time for me. The world becomes calm, the light becomes dim and I start to unwind. I can sit and visualize without the added pressure that I should be doing something else; like laundry, feeding my child, errands and so on. This is my time. And I LOVE my time!

I have a little exercise that I want you to do. It can take as little time as you like, or as long as you want it to last. I want you to visualize your perfect day. Money and obstacles do not matter – everything is YOURS to visualize!

Now take that visual and write it down.

It can start from the time you wake up until the time you go to bed. Write anything and everything down – silly, serious… this is YOUR DAY! Write what you want to see or have. A beautiful home, a beautiful family, a rewarding career… ENDLESS opportunities!

If you are having a tough time visualizing your perfect day just start writing things down that you love and what you enjoy doing. What makes you smile and what makes you go that extra mile. Chances are it might be to spend more time with your family, take that hobby and turn it into a career, or maybe you are picturing yourself on a warm sandy beach smelling the salt water. Whatever those thoughts and dreams are write them down!

Here is a little glimpse in what my perfect day would be like:

I would wake up, start a cup of coffee, kiss my sleeping little boy on the cheek and sit to write out my goals for that day. I would take this time to feel centered, grounded and charged for the day! I’ll practice yoga, go for a run or maybe take a nice walk. I will use this time to prep myself for the day that I am starting!

I am successful and happy with the career I have. I am working for myself, making my own schedule and allowing me both freedom with my chosen career and having a wonderful work/life balance. My career will be based around helping others – life coaching, personal training, nutritional counseling, etc. I want people to look up to me, trust me, confide in me and look at me as a leader. I want to be able to teach people and help mold them into the person they want to be.

I will also be financially stable and sound. This DOES NOT mean I want to be a millionaire… this means that I feel confident in my financial situation presently while knowing I am paving the way for my future. Sending Jordan to college, buying a home, becoming debt free… while still maintaining a sense of freedom knowing that when I go to store my debit card will always work, my bills are paid on time and that I have enough funds to put in a savings account.

Most importantly, I love myself and who I am. I am PROUD of who I have become. I am proud that I have made my own dreams come true by not giving up, staying strong and following my heart and passion. I am a strong leader, a loving mom, a compassionate wife and a dependable friend. When I close my laptop for the night and finally lay my head down I know that I have just lived and created a wonderful day for myself. I am confident that the choices I chose where the right ones for me.

That would be my perfect day.

The next step is look at this and start putting them into action. What are the steps that I need to take in order for me to have this perfect day… or a day that is pretty darn close. 

But you might say… well my perfect day is me being a ninja, battling villains and being a super hero!? You know what? That is amazing!! You should never dismiss your dreams, EVER! They may just need to be looked at in a different way.

So you see yourself being someone that people look to for help. You are helping keep people safe on a daily basis. Maybe your dreams say Ninja or Super Hero but when you visualize you might see yourself being a police officer or going into the military.

It’s perfectly normal to have amazing dreams! But if they are truly not realistic then start to analyze why you want to be that way and go from there!

Still need help? Let me guide you! I am offering coaching sessions (by popular demand!) to help you sort your dreams, give you tools to work with and allow you to be the best YOU can be!

Daily Affirmations – Day 6

What are we made out of?

WATER!

Take-3-liters-of-water-everyday

Water is essential in our daily lives! It helps detoxify you from the inside out! There is no magical number as to how much water you need on a daily basis. If you eat foods that have natural water content in it, like fresh fruit and vegetables, this also counts as your daily water intake. Also, the more active you are, the more you perspire, the more water you need to drink.

I shoot for 2 liters of water per day! This may seem like a lot but I have found a helpful tool that allows me to monitor my water consumption. I found this idea on Pinterest, of course!

water

Water refreshes and replenishes me. Water helps me maintain my good health and vibrant skin. I love water. I love drinking water. I drink enough water each day.

Be Beautiful, Be Healthy, Be YOU!

Daily Affirmations – Day 4

Good morning to you!

Today I want to tackle New Beginnings. New beginnings are AMAZING! You know why? Because it means you are trying something new and hopefully something positive! It also means that you noticed and realized something in your life was not quite right for you. You are taking the first step to a new you!

Now put away all of that excitement for a brief moment… you could be left with some fear, anxiety and second thoughts. Been there, done that. Believe me, for someone that does not like change I seem to constantly look for change in my life. The reason why is that I know there is more to life than what I am currently being exposed to. I have missing pieces to my puzzle and I am hunting them down! And I also strive to be the best person I can be – both physically and mentally!

Taking the first step in any direction is ALWAYS the hardest. You can feel alone, unsure and the last thing that you want to happen is failing somehow. But let me ask you this: what if you went through life without failing at anything? How do you think you would feel? Failing is one of those Negative Nancy words – a word that we don’t want to hear or one that we don’t want to even think about. But failing is growing, learning and proof that you have taken the risk to start something new. Congratulations! You should be proud of yourself! I know this idea seems a bit off but this just goes to show that when you take a negative word like Failure and think about it positively it starts to not look so scary or bad.

And you know what the best thing about failure is? The chance to start over! You are now stronger and smarter then you were before! Examine the situation, find a solution and start again!

———————————————————————————————

I am Flexible and Flowing.
I am to the new and changing. Every moment presents a wonderful new opportunity to become more of who I am.
I flow with life easily and effortlessly.

Journal and conversation starters:

· Have you been eager to start something new in your life but haven’t yet?

· What recent changes have you made to make your life amazing?

Daily Affirmations – Day 3

How did yesterday go for you? Were you able to fight off some of those negative Monday feelings? If not… That’s OK! Guess what?! You’re NORMAL! We learn, figure out what went wrong and move forward! There is no looking back in this life! Eye on the prize, as they say.

But what if you had a great day?! Take that positive feeling and keep moving forward with it! Don’t stop! Keep the motion going and the vibes flowing!

Self esteem can hinder someone’s ability to move forward and grow. Some of us are more sensitive or have problems letting go of the past. I know I do! What has scared me in the past has left a deep impression and unfortunately I have based my future life around this. This is a big no-no! I am not saying we shouldn’t learn from our own mistakes but we mustn’t think that every situation is the same. Life is forever changing, minute by minute, day by day, year by year.

Life coaching and use of daily affirmations is not a tool to cover these feelings up. It’s about helping shift our mental well-being and awareness to help feel free from these feelings! Writing, reading and saying daily affirmations guides us to start looking past our negative ways and to learn to accept the fact that we all have our individual hang-ups. It’s OK to have these feelings… we are human!

——————————————————————-

I love and accept myself. I understand and accept that my imperfection makes me perfect. Therefore, I am perfect exactly as I am and will remain perfect as I learn and grow.

Be Beautiful, Be Healthy, Be YOU!

Daily Affirmations

Daily Affirmations – Day 1

Daily affirmations are a powerful tool to use. However for those that read or say affirmations without meaning, affirmations are only words. And that’s OK! Some of you may not be in a positive place to fully grasp the idea… but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t read or write your own. Everyone has a beginning!

What is an affirmation? An affirmation is a positive thought that is practiced to help your mind and soul stay positive, focused and to get those wonderful energies flowing through your body. It can be about anything that fits your present situation! My goal is to provide you a affirmation on a daily basis. You may choose to use my affirmation or you can use this exercise to create your own wonderful affirmation.

There is one essential step: write it down! Put it on a sticky note and post it to your computer, write it in your journal, make a picture and save it to your phone… do what ever it takes for you to be able to read this affirmation when you start to feel a little down or lost. And your affirmation can change throughout the day, too!

This is your affirmation… customize it however you would like! 

—————————————————————-

I have mind power overcome any obstacles. I am able to control myself from bad deed. I have true love to myself and others. I have good health forever. I can get whatever I desire. I eat to live not live to eat. I am strong and healthy without weakness. I am able to heal the sick with the power of the Universe. I live the winner life.
