The Science & Benefits Behind Positive Affirmations

So to tackle your problems you just need to repeat positive thoughts?

Yes, and science backs it up. Positive affirmation practices have been linked to a reduction in stress and the effect of negative thoughts and in turn, an increase in cognitive performance and creativity. 

As the world-famous psychologist Daniel Kahneman describes in his bestseller “Thinking, Fast and Slow”, the brain has two systems through which it functions.

One is responsible for our conscious and deliberate thoughts

The other operates quickly and automatically with no voluntary control and no effort
