|Say Your Affirmations Daily|
Here's my plan, which is pretty simple and easy to implement. I'm way too crazy busy for complexity right now.
So, I purchased each of my kids post-it notes, which they will keep in their bedroom on their night stand. And every night before they go to bed, we'll write out at least one affirmation and stick it on their bathroom mirror. Now here's an important tip...there is no rule that says you can't write out two or three or more affirmations. Make this fun! And let your kids join in on the planning. Knowing my kids, we'll be writing two to three affirmations and sticking them everywhere, like the refrigerator and inside their lunch box and on their dad's computer monitor and on the toilet.
The next morning, your child should read their affirmation three times aloud. And anytime they are feeling sad or scared or angry, they should say their affirmation again.
So what if you don't have a night stand or bathroom mirror. Easy fix. Keep the post-it notes somewhere your kids always go to before they go to bed, like the bathroom or their dresser. Once your child writes their affirmation, have them stick it on their bedroom door, so when they wake up they will see it.
One last thought, yes you can reuse your affirmations. Change them up. Reword them. The most important part is that your children are replacing negative thoughts with positive ones.
Below are some affirmations to help you get started! Please share any that you and your children have created, too.
- I am talented.
- I am a good kid.
- I am smart.
