change Jan 11, 2021

One of my favorite mindset tools to use in a time of transition, stress, or really any time in my life is affirmations. Using positive statements to reinforce a desired belief or behavior is incredibly powerful, and today, I'll be sharing a few of my favorites. These are affirmations that are especially helpful if you’re in a time of transformation.

Write your own

To start with, know that you can always write your own affirmations. In fact, these may be even more powerful than one that you find that someone else has written. To do this, first think about how you'd like to feel. Write down some notes about that, making sure the language is positive, and stating it in the present tense.

When we first start listening to our intuition, it can feel intimidating to know if we’re doing it right – how can I distinguish between my intuition and other feelings and expectations in my life? I’ll be sharing a few signs and indicators that help you know if it is, in fact, your intuition tugging on your sleeve.

Nagging thoughts

For starters, are you having a nagging thought or feeling? This might be a thought that keeps coming back, even when you don't want it to. Maybe you keep thinking about a job posting that you saw or you keep wondering about a new business venture when you should be busy doing other things.
