Challenge & Overcome Self-Sabatoging & Negative Thoughts
Years ago, I would get craft paper from Michaels, cut the paper into cards and hand write fertility specific affirmations on them. I would pass them out at yoga class and everyone would get to keep the one that spoke the loudest to them. I would encourage everyone to place the card somewhere in a prominent location like a bathroom mirror or computer screen or even take a pic of it for a screensaver.
Well I created a downloadable Fertility Affirmation Deck that consists of 75 cycle specific affirmation cards. And it’s all yours! It’s MY GIFT to you and given my level of excitement on this, please take me up on this offer!
What Are Affirmations?
Affirmations are positive statements that can help you to challenge and overcome self-sabotaging and negative thoughts. When you repeat them often, and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes.
You might consider affirmations to be unrealistic “wishful thinking.” But try looking at positive affirmations this way: many of us do repetitive exercises to improve our physical health, and affirmations are like exercises for our mind and outlook. These positive mental repetitions can reprogram our thinking patterns so that, over time, we begin to think – and act – differently.
Although we use self-affirmations as a coping mechanism, they can also motivate us. Quite simply, when we feel good about ourselves, we are more likely to take action.
In contrast, when we feel bad about ourselves we become complacent, depressed, and are at a greater risk for health problems.
