Truth be told I struggle with Winter. The days are shorter, the sun rarely shows it's presence and my Vitamin D deficient body just wants to hibernate until Spring.
So many people struggle with Seasonal Affective Disorder which lands them in a seasonal rut. It's all to easy to allow negative messages to sneak in to our thinking when we are already not feeling 100% our carefree bubbly selves.
So, what messages have you been telling yourself as of late? Much like we are what we eat - we become a sum of the messages we are telling ourselves. Maybe you've caught yourself falling into a quicksand of negativity. Don't beat yourself up, we've all done it. It's never too late to dig yourself out.
We already receive millions of messages per day via social media, movies and campaign ads featuring Victoria's Secret models that tell us: "You are not skinny enough." We don't need to ad any more pressure to ourselves. What we need is to be our own cheerleader.
Each time you catch yourself thinking a negative thought today try replacing it with a positive affirmation. We project what we are thinking about ourselves and it can drain and zap our energy. Our thoughts attract whatever energy we are projecting.
Have you fallen captive to negative messages? What is the biggest lie you tell yourself? Do you believe in the power of positive affirmations?
