Affirmations anyone?

  In WellDoing coaching, I often encourage clients to visualise what the success of a particular project looks like. This helps to clarify the actions that are required to achieve the vision.

In Self-development circles, personal visualisations have been shown to raise levels of happiness. A key technique is the use of daily affirmations, repeated internally or out loud in front of the mirror.

A good affirmation has 5 things -

 1, It's personal

2, It's positive

3, It's visual

4, It's in the present tense

5, It's emotional

 Here are some popular examples from bmindful.com -
