408: Do positive affirmations work?

In this episode, we chat about positive affirmations and their power to shift your mindset. They are very much part of our business journey. When we started our business (11 years ago now) we had them pinned up on all of our walls everywhere.

This is what we spoke about during the episode

  • We came to a point where we stopped believing in the power of positive affirmations but listening to the Founders Podcast reminded us of the importance of positive affirmations and a positive mindset.
  • Positive affirmations are essential in shifting mindsets, especially in a stress-laden environment like managing a business.
  • It’s important to look at our thoughts and the words that are on repeat in our mind.
  • Positive affirmations are not just woo-woo or whimsical magical teachings. 
  • Carla shares her hypnobirthing journey, where positive affirmations are practised, to let go of the stress and anxiety of giving birth.
  • Positive affirmations can help regulate our emotions. If we shift our thoughts, our thoughts create the feelings.
  • It might feel weird when you first welcome in positive affirmations about yourself but you must persist. Over time, the resistance starts to fade.
  • The magic comes when you link it to a regular practice of your life such as yoga, Pilates, and meditation. 
  • If you want to feel the power of affirmation combined with movement and meditation, join our upcoming 14 Day Challenge on the 20th of May, inside the MerryBody app. Download the app and start your 7 day free trial.
