Affirmations are much more than chants or short statements you repeat to yourself. A simple habit of speaking positivity and prosperity over yourself has the ability to boost your mood and begin to incorporate a healthier and happier overall mindset. I have provided 10 affirmations that you can say at any time during the day, I personally prefer to say my affirmations first thing in the morning to set the tone of my day.
I was re-reminded about the power of affirmations a few years back when watching this show “Being MaryJane” ( show has since been cancelled). On this show the main character MJ, creates sticky notes with different words of inspirations and encouragement. She places her sticky notes pretty much everywhere in her house (not in a hoarding kind of way). Throughout the show, she comes across the sticky notes just when she needs some inspiration or encouragement. In true tv magic the sticky note always goes with the situation at hand and provides her with the boost she needs to fight another day. I actually started placing sticky notes on my bathroom mirror with affirmations written on them shortly after that show started and began seeing a shift within myself as affirmations became apart of my mindfulness practice.
Each morning while I brush my teeth, I repeat each affirmation that was placed the night before (sometimes I only add 1 new one) . I switch my affirmations around as I need them, change the ones already up and add ones as needed to help me stay encouraged during the week.
These are just a few of my favorites that you can use and/or tweak to fit your needs. This week I challenge you to come up with at least 3 affirmations that speak to you.
