Lynn Morgan Carpenter: So we've been talking about energy. And the reason why is because it is extremely important and it has an effect. So the state of your energy has an effect on your life experience because the state of our well-being, the state of our emotional health, mental health, has also an effect on our physical health. And this is all connected and tied to the well-being of our energy. And so today, what I wanna give you is a really quick tip. This is something that you can absolutely use every day. And I would encourage you to, because if you're in a place where you feel in a little lack of motivation, you're feeling flat, maybe down, this is something that will help to kickstart your energy and get you flowing in a healthy state again. And that is positive affirmations. So yes, I'm a huge believer in affirmations because there's even scientific data behind it that it triggers the same responses as if we had, um, our favorite meal or if we received a prize, or, um, if we received a hug from somebody. It has, it triggers those same response centers in the brain. And so by being able to provide that for yourself, being able to just do this on an easy basis and knowing this is at your fingertips, absolutely.
There is so much that we are able to do for ourselves to change the experience that we're having in our day-to-day lives. And it's right there and it's easy to do. So what I wanna share with you today are a few affirmations so that you can get started right now. And if any of these are resonating with you, feel free, write them down and recite them on a daily basis. When you start to feel a lull in your energy or you're starting to dip down, reach for these affirmations and say them, say them out loud, say them internally, write them, or journal them and allow this to have a positive effect on your overall well-being.
Okay, so here are just a few. Um, I choose powerful thoughts that push me towards my dreams or push me towards my calling. Uh, I choose to be motivated. I mean, just saying that I choose to be motivated, that flips and like, okay, I need to go get on that treadmill. I need to go outside for that walk in the sunshine. I choose to be motivated. I have dreams that I came here to achieve. I have a calling that is here before me, so I'm gonna choose to be motivated. Um, I choose to be authentic to my passions. You know, I choose to be authentic to my passions because my passions matter. I came here, they're packaged within me. They're unique to me and they deserve my attention. I choose to be authentic to my passions. Um, I choose to listen to others, but I will not be affected by negative opinions. Because my goodness, we come across negativity all day long. It can be in the news, it can be on social media, it can be in interactions that we have. I mean, the negativity, it's an easy place. Our minds mentally have a bias to go towards the negative. And so it takes work. It absolutely does. It takes work to shift that into more of the positive. And so that's where also these affirmations are able to really, um, swerve us away, protect us from that negative bias that we can so easily dip into, but has really zero zero positivity or benefit on our lives and our wellbeing and the state of our energy.
So these are just a few of the affirmations that will help you to get started and this week really practice this. Have these written down, have them in your back pocket to where you can use this as a resource every single day as you're moving forward. And start to feel, start to feel personally the effect that it has on you and the effect that it has on your energy and your overall well-being.
