"There is no inspiration without being armed with the ability of self-talk". -Mwanandeke Kindembo
Daily affirmations can be a great way to boost your self-esteem and help you stay positive. Affirmations are positive statements that remind you of your worth and help to counteract any negative thoughts you might be having. They can help to remind you of the strengths and positive qualities you possess and help you to focus on the good. Research has shown that when people repeat positive affirmations on a regular basis, they can become more confident and have higher self-esteem. So if you find yourself struggling with low self-esteem, consider using daily affirmations to help build your confidence.
Below is a list of 30 affirmations. Each day pick your favorite 3 from the list or create your own. Write them down in a journal or on your mirror (dry erase markers). Then practice reciting them in the morning and evening out loud.
Check in with yourself: How does it make you feel? Is it uncomfortable being this kind to yourself? What stops you from creating this positivity in your life? After a week of daily affirmations, how has your mood changed?
