We start the year thinking and planning goals we want to accomplish, but as the year goes on sometimes our motivation and inspiration fades. It can be so hard to keep working on our goals. Today’s journal prompt is all about writing out affirmations that can help keep our inspiration going! Affirmations are helpful because the more we repeat them to ourselves, the more our brain begins to process it as being true. What we think impacts what we say and what we do. So if we are continually saying or writing out positive affirmations about our goals it will become much easier to start doing things that support our goal.
Write out a goal you are working towards. Make sure to add detail as far as when you want to accomplish it and what specifically you are working towards.
Write out three positive affirmations for each prompt below:
- Write an affirmation that describes yourself as having already completed the goal. For example “I am healthy and take care of my body and mind.”
- Write an affirmation that describes steps you take to make your goal happen. For example “I feed my body foods that are healthy and nourishing.”
- Write an affirmation that addresses your ability to accomplish your goal. For example “I am able to create space in my life for my health to thrive.”
