When utilised correctly, positive affirmations are a really good way to disrupt a negative cycle of thoughts which may manifest otherwise be self-sabotaging.

Using affirmations (properly) is a great way to end your week on a positive note, and start the next one on the right foot.

To ensure you’re using affirmations in the best way, I recommend reading this post about manifestation affirmations, which explains exactly how they work according to science.

The upshot is that, while affirmations can’t manifest the perfect day for you, what they can do is rewire the subconscious mind to default to a more positive attitude.

Which sounds incredible in the truest meaning of the word, yet it’s completely true1. Using affirmations (properly) is a great way to end your week on a positive note, and start the next one on the right foot.

Affirmations become your inner voice, drowning out and eventually replacing any negative self-talk.

So why not give yourself the best chance of enjoying a wonderful day on Monday, by practicing a few Sunday blessings in the form of affirmations?
