There’s Magic in Affirmations

There are times when the news can be so bleak, and it can bring down your mood or send you down a rabbit hole.  One helpful solution to combat negative media, distractions, or disappointments is to use affirmations.

"Affirmations are positive statements that can help you to challenge and overcome self-sabotaging and negative thoughts. When you repeat them often, and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes."*

The key is to turn your focus on the good things in your life and put a smile on your cute face!
