Todays Affirmation post is inspired by those days where you just wonder if you should have even bothered getting up in the morning. We have all had a those rough days where you question your very being - who you are and what others see you as. This post is for when you have had the kind of day where you feel as if your confidence and personal wellbeing has been shaken to its very core.
In summary, it is for all of us who have had the kind of day (or heaven forbid week) where you think, 'today, I am more the statue than I am the seagull'.
|Don't scoff. I am quite serious. A hug can be one of those things that soothes the soul and eases the aches of a bad day. Hugging induces oxytocin, a powerful 'feel good' hormone. It is an instant stress deflator, with the added bonus of stimulating dopamine, which is the pleasure hormone. What is not to love? I am not a hugger by nature, but even I will admit that the hug I got after my rough day was just the medicine I needed. My advice - never underestimate the power of the hug.|
Finally, we all have rough days, and we all have times where the self talk is negative and feeding into the dramas of the rough day. If you have had one of those then take heart - it will be but a memory soon enough, and in the meantime, read through these affirmations and see if one of them hits the button for you, because I made them especially for you and I and those rough days.
