Why Positive Affirmations Work?

Our thought processes can become habit. If we find ourselves thinking negatively, it can be because our brain has got into the habit of thinking this way. Repeating positive affirmations daily can be powerful enough to alter your subconscious thoughts and create new positive thinking habits. This will also improve your positive self talk.

How Long Does it Take for Positive Affirmations to Work? 

It depends on the person. You need to do it regularly, and try to believe what you are saying. Studies show it can take up to 3 weeks. I would suggest repeating your affirmations 3 times, morning and night to start with, and do this for at least a month, but for best results, keep going!
