Have you been feeling down lately? Or has daily life felt lackluster or challenging? The Doctors share a simple way to boost your confidence and combat your negative thoughts.
Dr. Ian Smith shares he is a huge fan of using confidence mantras. "It all starts with your mind," he says, explaining if you say an affirmation out loud or write down an affirmation has the ability to reprogram how we think and how we execute what we think -- including those negative feelings.
He suggests consciously and actively writing, saying, or thinking about these positive affirmations on a daily basis. In his book, "Mind over Weight: Curb Cravings, Find Motivation, and Hit Your Number in 7 Simple Steps," Dr. Ian details the power of an affirmation, and he shares some of his favorites from the book, including:
- When you think about quitting, think about why you started
- How successful you are in setting the right goals, is how successful you will be in achieving them
- Motivation will get you to start, confidence will get you to finish
The next time you feel that negative voice in the back of your mind creeping up, take your power back with a mantra!
