Even though nothing ‘new’ happens on January 1st, humans love a new beginning to start afresh. And what better time to relook at the things that matter to us the most than at the beginning of a new year. For the past two years, the world has been in a perpetual state of uncertainty and stress, with no sense of stability or clarity whatsoever. However, we can decide to set the course for the year that’s coming by starting on the most positive note, armed with a set of affirmations that can guide us into self-awareness.
Reciting affirmations daily affects the conscious and subconscious mind. They are a powerful way to move towards the evolution of your ‘self’.

And while affirmations are no substitute for therapy, those who have used them regularly have experienced increase in their self-esteem and an improvement in their mindset.
