How should you use these affirmations for friends?
Choose a few affirmations that you would like to focus on. Write them down on a piece of paper or in your journal. Choose what time of day you would like to establish your new habit. You can choose to say your affirmations in the morning after waking up and starting your day, and also again before you fall asleep. You can also say your affirmations in the middle of the day if that works better for you.
Repeat each affirmation around 15 times per session, at least twice a day. Remember to focus and use intention. This number is not set in stone. If you feel more connected to a smaller number, you can repeat your affirmation that many times. For example, if 8 is a special number to you, then repeat your affirmation 8 times per session.
You can say the affirmations out loud, or repeat them silently in your head. It can also be helpful to write the affirmations in places you will see them. You can jot them down on sticky notes and place them on your mirror. Or, you can put them on your fridge.
Most importantly, remember to be patient and to trust in your affirmations!
