Do you doubt yourself or believe you have low self-esteem? Do you lack confidence?
Are you willing to consider self-love as a prescription for self-acceptance? If so, these affirmations are exactly what you need. They are designed to help you build self-love. When you love yourself, everything becomes easier.
We are often too critical about ourselves; how we look, what we wear, the number of likes on social media, and the list goes on. You can help stop comparison and self-criticism by practicing affirmations daily.
What Are Affirmations?
Affirmations are positive statements that rewire the way you think about yourself and are at the root of positive self-talk. They help you see the good in yourself. The more you practice affirmations, the more they become a habit and build your mind to look at the positive side of yourself and the situations around you. Affirmations help you put in the effort to stay true to your beliefs. It is acting like you already have that which you desire to have; confidence, a new job, a healthy body, and so on.
Affirmations work when said with belief. A study states, “When threatened, self-affirmations can restore self-competence by allowing individuals to reflect on sources of self-worth, such as core values.”
The human brain adapts to situations and circumstances. Practicing affirmations daily builds muscle memory for the mind to act and behave a certain way.
How to Start Self-Love Affirmations?
Say affirmations aloud or write them in your journal. Another tip is to stand in front of a mirror and say your affirmations while making eye contact with yourself. Think about what you want to change. Then write affirmations around the way you desire the outcome to be. Affirmations are personal, positive and present-tense, not in the future. Believe in the affirmations while writing and speaking them. Be realistic - yet brave enough to create change and align your affirmations with your core values. You can't do this wrong! Below are some examples for you to use or to follow as a guideline.
