Our final back-to-school activity is one that you and your family can practice every day. Positive affirmations.
Positive affirmations are short, declarative sentences with a decidedly optimistic tone. Affirmations are stated in the present tense. That’s the case even if you don’t believe what you are saying or if you think it sounds silly. Studies have found that regularly using positive affirmations rewires the brain to fundamentally change the structure of the pathways in your mind, and change the way you think for the better. And it all happens within a matter of weeks.
