“Nothing can dim the light that shines from within.”

- Maya Angelou

Let me share with you a transformative practice that began in my days as a concert pianist. Affirmations were the key to maintaining grace under the bright lights of performance. 

Initially my secret to overcoming stage pressure, affirmations have evolved into a daily ritual that help me feel mindful and intentional. 

What are Affirmations?

Affirmations are powerful, simple phrases that help us stay connected to our higher intentions. They go beyond just making us feel good, reminding us of our goals and values. By repeating affirmations, we align our thoughts and actions with our aspirations and values.

The Magic of Affirmations

Studies show that the average person has tens of thousands of thoughts per day, and up to 70-80% of them can be negative or critical. This is due to our brain's “negativity bias”—an instinct meant to protect us. However, in our modern lives, this often leaves us caught in a tide of pessimistic thoughts.

Affirmations are how we can turn the tide. By actively choosing to focus on positive affirmations, we're actually retraining our brains, steering them away from doubts and distractions. We essentially reprogram our brain to focus on what we want and how we want to feel.

Affirmations and Self-Care: A Holistic Approach

To deepen this practice, I recommend integrating it with a self-care ritual that nourishes both your soul and your skin. Here’s how you can make affirmations a part of your daily self-care routine:

1. Start with Skincare: Begin your day by nurturing your skin and soul. Savor Beauty products have affirmations on them, such as “glow” or “nourish” or “transform.” 

As you apply each product, use that moment to affirm your inner beauty and strength. For example, as you put on the Pomegranate Eye Serum, you might say, “I feel revitalized.” 

This is where skincare transcends into self-care, where every application becomes a moment of empowerment.

2. Plan With Purpose: Planning is a form of manifesting, turning your inner vision into external reality. "Write it down, make it happen" is using your planning space to jot down your affirmations.

Do you feel accomplished when writing a checkmark next to an accomplished to-do item? That's because checkmarks do more than track progress—they also release endorphins. Pause to celebrate the boost in confidence that radiates a beautiful glow!

3. Affirm Throughout the Day: In moments when doubt or fear whispers in your ear, hit pause and reconnect with your affirmation. This practice keeps you aligned with your highest self and reminds you of your desired transformation. 

Want to discover that one powerful word that resonates deeply with you? Join me in the Transform online masterclass. Through tailored exercises, I guide you to uncover your unique one-word affirmation, empowering you with confidence and purpose.

4. Reflect and Reaffirm: End your day by reflecting on your affirmation(s). During your nighly cleansing ritual, affirm that you are reviving and purifying your skin and spirit. Before bed, revisit your planner, reaffirming your commitment before you get your beauty sleep. 

This nightly ritual seals the day with gratitude and sets the tone for a radiant tomorrow.

"Try affirmations with your beauty rituals. This is where skincare transcends into self-care."
