With the rise of social media and the ability to share content seamlessly, positive affirmations have become a trending topic among the personal development community. But what a lot of people don’t know is that there is a great deal of science that actually backs up how positive affirmations can improve your mind and body.
When repeated, affirmations dive deep into your conscious and subconscious mind, giving you the inspiration and motivation you need to reach your goals. As I always say, what you perceive is what you believe. So if you have negative thoughts, self-defeating tendencies, or limiting beliefs, your attitude, feelings, and behavior are going to be negatively impacted - blocking you from living your greatest life.
One of the more popular uses of positive affirmations today is to create a healthier, happier lifestyle through positive mantras. These mantras create positive thoughts, which in turn create positive emotions and give way to good intentions. Below are 12 of my favorite affirmations that I practice daily and you should too!
AN ENDLESS SUPPLY OF HEALING ENERGY STREAMS THROUGH ME AT ALL TIMES.

I highly recommend you print these affirmations out and tape them to your bathroom mirror or somewhere else where you'll be sure to see them each day. Speak each one out loud if you can, and through this daily repetition, you'll begin shifting yourself into a more positive vibration... and the Universe will soon begin boomeranging that positivity back to you - creating the healthy lifestyle you’ve always craved.
By the way, if you've found it challenging to be healthier...
And have already tried everything from eating healthy, to exercise, to diets - and you still can’t get the fit, youthful, healthy body you deserve...
