10 Affirmations to Add to Your Daily Mix

Words Hold Power

Words have power, and the way we talk to and about ourselves can have a significant impact on our thoughts and behaviors. That’s where affirmations come in—repeating certain phrases to yourself can boost your self-esteem, reduce your stress, create a more positive mindset, motivate you to take certain actions, and improve your overall well-being. Plus, why shouldn't we foster being our biggest fans and nurturers?

So, that sounds great and all, but you might be asking yourself "How do I get there"? Begin by choosing the phrases that will best serve your needs and ones that you have the most buy in already (the ones that you can more easily believe in). Here are 10 ideas to get you started on your journey to positive affirmations:

  1. I deserve to be happy and happiness can find me.
  2. I’m strong enough to get through this and can accept the support.
  3. My body is beautiful and moves me through my day.
  4. I trust myself and know what is best for me.
  5. I’m going to be okay.
  6. I can do whatever I put my mind to and invite in success.
  7. I’m proud of myself today and every day.
  8. Today is going to be a great day.
  9. I’m worthy of love and welcome it in.
  10. I’m at peace with the things I can’t control.

Once you’ve selected the affirmations you want to use, decide how you want to incorporate them into your routine—maybe you can say them as you’re getting ready in the morning, commuting to work, or winding down before bed. Many people find it helpful to recite their affirmations out loud, but you can also say them to yourself, whatever feels right for you! No matter what, it’s important that you repeat them daily, since doing so makes it easier for your brain to adapt and create new thinking habits. The good news is our brain is malleable and can change depending on our focus.
