Affirmation: Pampering myself helps clear my mind.
I believe that mental clarity is the key to creativity and success. I am able to be more creative and innovative when my mind is clear. I do whatever is necessary to achieve mental clarity.
Pampering myself helps me to develop a clearer mind. Taking time to treat myself to relaxation gives me the downtime I require to regroup. When I treat myself well, I feel encouraged to perform at my optimum level.
I choose various ways to pamper myself because I believe a relaxed body leads to a relaxed mind.
When my budget allows, I may take some time at a spa. I get a massage or other body treatment that soothes my muscles. A change of environment is just as therapeutic as a massage, so I sometimes take long drives out of town or visit someone I rarely see or to spend time with nature.
A new environment helps me forget about life’s everyday stresses. I replace stressful thoughts with fresh ideas. I become more focused on what I need to do after a change of scenery.
When I achieve a goal, I treat myself to something nice. Pampering myself leads to greater happiness and satisfaction.
Today, I stand behind the idea of pampering my mind and body.
I know that this is a necessary part of my sanity and motivation.
My life is more fulfilling when I allow myself to be pampered.
