2. Repeat positive affirmations.
The more often you hear a message, the more likely you are to believe it. This is true for messages we hear from our friends, boss, parents, and ourselves.
However, we have a choice. We can choose what we want to believe by counteracting negative messages. Choose two to three positive affirmations and repeat them to yourself daily or when you encounter a stressful event. For example, “I can handle anything life throws at me,” or “I am strong and capable.”
It might seem ineffective at first, but with repetition we create habits. And with time, are able to rewire our brains to become more resilient.
