Affirmations are motivational statements that you say repeatedly to yourself to boost your mental state of mind.
You can call them “Uppers,” for fun’s sake. They will teach you to think positively and feel good about yourself, regardless of the circumstances around you.
Start a daily practice to rehearse the “Uppers” and see how it feels. There is nothing to lose and perhaps something to gain from saying good things to your self daily. Here are some affirmations will surely jump start even the moody blues!!
I love Myself
I love myself. I am kind to myself. I realized that my life’s journey really starts when I become a best friend to myself. Only then can I be a gift to everyone else and bring value to the world. What can I do that will help me be GOOD to my mind, soul and body?
I forgive myself unconditionally
Today I embrace myself with all the mistakes that I make. I will affirm “I love myself” no matter how big or small I understand the mistake to be. I understand that I am only human, and doing the best that I can. I put the baseball bat in the trash can!! What do I need to forgive myself for today?!!
I am what I think
I recognize my thoughts are extremely powerful. What I think, I believe. Today I start a diet that truly works: I will refrain from all negativity every moment of the this day!!
