Inspiring Action Affirmations That Will Boost Motivation Today

Action Affirmations

I have a lot on my plate as a wife and mother, but also nurture lofty goals and career aspirations. It’s easy to get overwhelmed or discouraged if I don’t keep my mind right. Daily action affirmations help me stay focused and empowered to achieve everything on my list.

If you’re a busy woman or mom like me, this extra encouragement can go a long way to help you tackle your hopes and dreams, too.

What’s an Affirmation?

For those not familiar with affirmations, they are positive and affirming statements that you repeat to yourself to overcome self-doubt or sabotage and that help form a mental picture of the outcomes we want for ourselves.

You can use affirmations daily or in preparation for specific tasks like a presentation for work, a sporting event, to overcome unhealthy habits or anything else you need extra encouragement to accomplish.

Do Affirmations work?

Affirmations are backed by science and positive psychology. Our brain’s neuroplasticity plays a role in how affirmations work. Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to adapt and change to new stimuli and new life circumstances.

When you form a mental image of yourself completing a new task or accomplishing a goal, this activates some of the same areas of the brain that actually experiencing these things would do.

So, what you think can become your reality, just like the saying, “What you think is what you become”.
