This is the announcement post for the 10 Day Affirmation Challenge. Those interested are going to practice positive affirmations for 10 days in August 2020.
When I first started practicing affirmations, it felt weird. The more I’ve practiced affirming, the easier it’s gotten. So this month, I invite you to join me on a 10 Day Chronic Illness Affirmation Challenge.
The Power of Affirmations
Each one of us affirms, whether you believe it or not.
Have you ever heard the saying there is power in the tongue? Every time you make a statement about yourself (spoken, thought, or written) you are affirming that idea over yourself and your life.
I’ve discussed the concept of affirmations before. If you missed the previous post, you can check it out here.
Some people write down their affirmations at a fixed time every day and read them out loud. Others meditate on their affirmations and manifest them in their reality.
There is only one rule of affirmations: Speak light, life and positivity.
My Journey with Affirmations
Affirmations can be transformational in terms of mindset.
I started using them a couple of years ago because I was in a really dark space mentally and wanted to combat those negative thoughts.
Specifically focusing on Chronic Illness Affirmations helped me cope and process the feelings I have as it pertains to my diagnosis and chronic illness journey
If I’m being honest, I havent been as consistent in my affrimation practice as I want to be. However, in March (right around the time of COVID) I got back to them.
I started affirming, journaling and meditating daily. It’s the most consistent I’ve been in my mental health efforts. And I can honestly say that I feel much for balanced.
Introducing: 10-Day Affirmation Challenge for August 2020!
During the month of August, I will be kicking off a 10-day affirmation challenge! The aim of the challenge is to introduce you to the concept of using affirmations, which will hopefully encourage you to start using them regularly.
- Starting August 10 (Monday), each day of the challenge, you’ll receive an affirmation topic, journal prompts, and a task (Don’t worry- it’s nothing OC).
- I’ll be posting my affirmations and prompt responses on social media so make sure you’re following me.
- I’ll officially wrap up the challenge on August 20, when I’ll post a roundup for reflections and feedback.
