“It’s not what you say out of your mouth that determines your life, it’s what you whisper to yourself that has the most power.” – Robert Kiyosaki
“Self-affirmation (e.g., reflecting upon a personally important value) has elicited a broad range of positive effects in many studies in social and health psychology (for reviews, see Cohen and Sherman, 2014, Sherman and Cohen, 2006). These include beneficial effects on academic achievement (e.g., Cohen, Garcia, Purdie-Vaughns, Apfel, & Brzustoski, 2009), self-control (Schmeichel & Vohs, 2009), task performance (Creswell, Dutcher, Klein, Harris, & Levine, 2013), and health-related behavior (e.g. Epton, Harris, Kane, van Koningsbruggen, & Sheeran, 2014).” - sciencedirect
“Every thought you think and every word you speak is an affirmation. All of our self-talk, our internal dialogue, is a stream of affirmations. You’re using affirmations every moment whether you know it or not. You’re affirming and creating your life experiences with every word and thought.” - Lousie Hay
“People use affirmations for a variety of purposes. Generally speaking, affirmations are used to reprogram the subconscious mind, to encourage us to believe certain things about ourselves or about the world and our place within it. They are also used to help us create the reality we want—often in terms of making (or attracting) wealth, love, beauty, and happiness.” - Kathryn J Lively Ph.D.
Regular affirmations allow us to become more in tune with our thoughts and the way we think about our self in general.
Daily affirmations can be a difficult thing to do though. Especially if you are someone who has struggled with self-compassion before, saying something nice about yourself is not always the easiest thing to do.
Affirmations are more beneficial when they are repeated. The more you repeat the same affirmation, the more your unconscious begins to believe it.
Repeating positive affirmations throughout your day can make all the difference and eventually it becomes a habit.
By continually subjecting our mind to positive thoughts, we are actively changing how brain functions (Shaffer, 2016). Over time we are training our brains to think more positively through self-affirmations.
That is why we created a collection, to help you do exactly that. Small reminders that, by reading them repeatedly throughout the day, help you make a habit out of positive thinking.
Positivity is contagious. By practicing positive affirmations, you are indirectly helping others as well. Your positive attitude will carry on to other people and in turn make them feel better and by actively wearing and showing off your positive affirmations with our bags, short and long sleeves for ladies and short and long sleeves for gentlemen, you make those around you attract the same positive things since they will be reading those positive thoughts as well.
