“Making Affirmations work for you” Dr.Susan Lark: Override your subconscious with positive statements about yourself. You don’t have to believe them, they can still facilitate permanent positive changes in your brain and how you feel. 1) Affirmations can be done in your mind, spoken aloud, written down. Do no more than five affirmations at a time. Do the affirmations twice a day. Speak in the present tense, such as, “I feel good.” “I am strong,”I completely accept myself.” Watch it make a difference if you stick with it.
