- Stick with affirmation for at least one day before modifying it.
Customize Your Homeschool Affirmations
Affirmations are "I" statements. As long as your affirmations include positive words that focus on growth, you can create them for any topic, issue, or situation. With positive, growth-oriented affirmations, your homeschool joy will soar!
A few tips on customizing your affirmations:
- Focus on the present or future-not the past. You are not looking forwards but moving forward towards positive change.
- Use power words for effective growth.
- Select words that are meaningful and significant for you.
- Keep your affirmations short and easy to recall.
- Your affirmations are most effective when rational and realistic. (For example, you may want to work out for three hours a day but an affirmation with the specific goal is not realistic if you have been a couch potato).
Of course, no resource on affirmations would be complete without a reference to that amicable Saturday Night Live character, Stuart Smalley.
