Positive Affirmations: The Perfect Way To Practice Self Love
Affirmations have become a hot topic these days and for good reason. Daily affirmations are a great way to practice self love and bring positive thoughts to the forefront of your mind.
The habit of repeating daily affirmations will remind you of the wonderful things you have in your life and will also help you reprogram your thoughts to push any negative thinking out of the way.
Are you ready to bring a little more positivity and self love to your day? Well, let’s begin…
So, what exactly is self love?
Many of us are so focused on everyone else in our lives – our kids, our spouses, our parents, our friends… coworkers… neighbours. The list goes on. So we need to understand that self love is needed to give ourselves balance.
“Self-love is not simply a state of feeling good. It is a state of appreciation for oneself that grows from actions that support our physical, psychological and spiritual growth”. (Khoshaba)
Self love is apprecating your positive qualities in life and reminding yourself of them.
The Benefits of Positive, Daily Affirmations
Psychology Today has a great definition of why people use affirmations…
“…affirmations are used to reprogram the subconscious mind, to encourage us to believe certain things about ourselves or about the world and our place within it.
They are also used to help us create the reality we want—often in terms of making (or attracting) wealth, love, beauty, and happiness.”
How To Use Daily Self Love Affirmations Effectively
There are a few ways to make the most of your daily affirmations. Here are some great examples.
1. Create time in your daily schedule for your affirmations
I highly recommend adding daily self love affirmations to your morning routine or bedtime routine. It’s a great way to focus on building your self esteem as well.
- Get out your list of positive self love affirmations and choose one to focus on
- Stand in front of a mirror, close your eyes and take a deep breath
- Open your eyes and say your affirmation 3 times
- Now think of what this affirmation means to you in different aspects of your life
- Repeat your positive affirmation another 3 times so you can really let it sink in
- Throughout your day leave reminders of your self love affirmation by writing it in your journal, daily planner or calendar
This practice only takes a few minutes but can make a huge impact on your day and your life.
2. Write Your Own List of Self Love Affirmations
Once you get in the habit of practicing daily affirmations I would love for you to write your own self love affirmations. This will make your affirmations more personal and relevant to your specific needs today.
To write your own affirmations get a good quality journal or notebook and a pen you love to write with.
- Begin by writing down your personal thoughts – good and bad.
- Now circle the negative thoughts and feelings that you need to change into positive thoughts
- Repeat this and circle the positive thoughts (with a different colour pen) that you want to remind yourself of
- Write 2 to 3 affirmations for each thought that you feel will help you focus on a positive outcome
