Day 3

Affirmation Writing Steps – by Harriet Hodgson

  • Sit in a comfortable chair.
  • Eliminate background noise if possible.
  • Clear the clutter from your mind by meditating or visualizing a blank television screen.
  • Using the present tense, write a one-sentence affirmation about a positive thought.
  • Check your affirmation for word choices and tone.
  • Change a word or two if you must. Resist the urge to over-work your affirmation.
  • Continue to write one-sentence affirmations.
  • Keep your affirmations in a notebook, journal or computer file.
  • Copy an affirmation on a small piece of paper and stick it in your pocket. During the day read the affirmation several times to retain a positive attitude.
  • Keep affirming yourself and your life with words.
