I have a confession to make. Last year, I did something crazy and unlike me. I participated in a comedy show called Penn & Teller’s Bullshit on Showtime. For someone as introverted as I am, it was one of the most scariest and embarrassing things I ever did. It’s not something I am especially excited to share. But I’m doing so for a reason.

The subject of the show was affirmations. It questioned whether there was anything really beneficial to it or just another laughable practice best turned into a parody on Saturday Night Live. You know like Stuart Smalley’s, “Daily Affirmations?” Surprisingly, it’s not all, “I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and doggone it people like me.” There are actually real benefits to affirmations. And one of this week’s post not only gives you 10 affirmations to start off with by the reasons why it can transform your life. Read it and decide for yourself.

This week you’ll also get tips on anger management and advice on what to say or what you shouldn’t say to a friend who’s on yet another diet. There are lots of good stuff here. So dig in!
