It is mid year and how is your mindset? The year seems to be passing us by. I have been doing a lot of coaching focusing on ANTs (Automatic Negative Thoughts), and I wanted to share 3 helpful ways to get a great mindset with you! I use these tips myself, because even I have ANTs at times. I’m only human.
Here are some awesome tips for you to help turn your mindset around and set yourself up for success on those days where you’re just not feeling it –
1. Set your focus
Set the tone for the day, by sitting down first thing in the morning and asking what you want from the day and from yourself? Having a focus for the day will help you feel energised and motivated, ready to smash some goals!
2. Say positive affirmations
You may feel a bit silly to start with, but there’s a reason so many people tout the benefits of positive affirmations – they really do work!
Use ‘I am’ phrases, e.g. I am strong, I am smart, I am worthy.
Before you know it, you’ll start believing your affirmations and feeling a lot better!
3. Think about your thinking
Take moments throughout the day to think about whether your thoughts are empowering or disempowering. Reflecting on these thoughts will help you identify the negative ones that don’t do any good, and you’ll you be able to start correcting these thoughts and making them positive. It’s hard to start this to begin with, so be patient with yourself.
Remember, we need to squash the ANTs; they stop us from reaching our full potential!
