This is one of the most powerful techniques I will ever teach you. The power of your own mind. What if I told you that the thoughts you think, actually shape your life for better for your worse? What if I told you that you clear your skin by changing the way you think?
For some of you, this may seem crazy. For others, you would have heard of positive affirmations before and how they can change your life for the better. This is not some voodoo technique that has never been used before, affirmations have actually been used for years and have been known to be VERY effective.
So how do affirmations work and how can you use them to clear your skin and change your life for the better?
Stop The Negative Self Talk
That’s right. I’m talking about that little voice inside your head that tells you that you’re not good enough, that you’re too fat to wear that and that you can’t leave the house without makeup. I want you to take note of how many times a day you are entertaining negative self-talk, then I want you to replace each of those thoughts with a new, positive thought. I can guarantee you that the amount of times a day that you notice negative self-talk, will blow you away! After around three weeks, this process will begin to be a habit.
Learn To Love Yourself
When was the last time you did something nice for yourself? There an abundance of nice things you can do to yourself but we are often so busy looking after others that we forget to look after ourselves. Run yourself a bath, nourish your body lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, drink more water, pay yourself a compliment. This is about learning to love yourself again, before and after having acne regardless of what your skin or your body looks like. Ultimately, you are still the same person inside regardless of what your exterior looks like. Don’t wait until you’ve lost that weight, got that job or cleared your skin to love yourself. Love yourself as you are, right now.
Practice Affirmations Everyday
Affirmations are not something that you can say once and your life will miraculously change over night. Like all things, practice makes perfect and affirmations are exactly the same. It’s best to allow 20 minutes per day to practice saying your affirmations for best results. You can achieve even better results in a shorter time frame if you practice in front of a mirror. I know it seems ridiculous, but by saying your affirmations in front of a mirror, you are making them 10x more powerful! It’s important to look into your eyes and say them with true belief in present tense. This is not a time to say “I will have clear skin and a healthy body”, this is a time to say “I have clear skin and a healthy body.” By saying affirmations in a PRESENT tense you are affirming these statements are true and correct. I believe that 30 days of affirmations will change your life, but you’ll see the true benefit by practicing every day for the rest of your life. Every day, you will feel happier and healthier.
Here are some examples of positive affirmations:
- I love and approve of myself
- I am in perfect health
- I stand up for myself
- I am ready to enjoy perfect health
- I eat foods that are healthy and whole
- I drink lots of water every day
- I exercise regularly to keep myself fit and energetic
- I love my body more and more every day
- I am happy with my appearance
The most important thing to remember with affirmations is that you must practice them often. I’ve seen clients use them, practice every day and really make some great changes in their lives. Once they reap the benefits, they stop practicing and sooner or later fall victim to the same old ways of thinking.
Practice your affirmations every single day. If you miss a day, that doesn’t matter just pick up where you left off whenever you remember.
