2020 has been a year for the history books, and many of us are experiencing increased stress and anxiety. Whether it’s a sudden shift in our daily routine (Zoom fatigue, anyone?), increased responsibilities (full-time employee, full-time parent, IT support, head chef, and more) or sad and lasting impacts from the pandemic, we could all use a little positive thinking and self love.
That’s why Health Magazine and Health.com are introducing our newest interactive, voice-enabled Alexa Skill: My Daily Mindset. This 14-day affirmation journey will help you start thinking happier, healthier thoughts. To get started, enable the skill here. Then say, “Alexa, open My Daily Mindset” to any Amazon Echo speaker or Alexa-enabled device (including the app on your phone!), and come back daily for new content.
My Daily Mindset offers a simple, guided introduction to the practice and benefits of daily affirmations. Explore each day's theme, such as positivity, resilience, letting go of the past, and more. Then practice by repeating and internalizing an affirmation, listening to a daily wellness tip, and opting in to receive related articles from Health.com, sent straight to your phone!
The best part? You don’t need any experience to give this a try—all you need is a few minutes, an Alexa smart speaker or app, and an open mind. This skill is compatible with both audio-only and screen devices.
Just say “Alexa, Open My Daily Mindset" to start your 14-day affirmation journey and think healthy thoughts, every day!
For Alexa-enthusiasts (or anyone looking to get more out of their smart speaker), we also recommend adding My Daily Mindset to your Alexa Routine. Affirmations are most effective when repeated each day, but we know it can be difficult to remember to return daily. Routines are a great way to automate your news, weather and traffic updates, and prompt experiences like My Daily Mindset with one simple invocation every morning (or evening!). Here’s how to create a Routine and add this skill:
