The Power of Daily Affirmations for Building Self-Love and Self-Worth

When living in a world that is so deeply rooted in social media and personal image, it can be hard to turn off that constant comparison in your head, even when you put your phone down.

Social media has made it very hard to differentiate what is reality and what is not and it has caused a lot of suffering for many people.

A powerful tool that can be used for good has caused many to lose their sense of worth and confidence.

Something I have found to help keep me grounded and rooted in who I am has been focusing on how I talk to myself and treat myself daily.

I always say, if you wouldn’t talk to your friend the way you talk to yourself, there is an issue that needs to be fixed.

Insert daily affirmations!

Hey Y’all!

Chas here, just your average single mama in sunny SoCal providing a safe space on the internet to discuss all things mental health, motherhood, and women empowerment-related!

After going through many difficult times in my life, I kept searching for some place to get answers or to just feel like I wasn’t alone. After many years of not finding it, I decided it was in my power to create it. So here we are!

What Are Daily Affirmations?

Daily affirmations are positive statements that help train your brain both consciously and unconsciously to focus on a goal.

That goal can be anything from work-related to self-esteem related.

The goal of these powerful mantras are to overcome that negative voice we all have in our heads, in addition to diminishing self-sabotaging behaviours or thoughts.

Instead of focusing on negativity within ourselves, we are redirecting our focus to positivity.

When we focus on speaking positively about ourselves, we re-train our brain to work for us instead of against us.

This mental shift has such a profound affect especially if you suffer from a mental illness such as depression, anxiety, OCD, and more.

The ultimate guide to positive affirmations and how using them daily can change your life for the better. Be the best you, you can be.

How to Incorporate Affirmations Into Your Daily Routine

A great way to start incorporating positive affirmations into your life, is by first committing.

Focus on the next seven days to make it a point to create a routine in the morning that lets you focus on your intentions and start your day on a positive note.

When you wake up, avoid checking your phone first thing. Instead go to your bathroom and while brushing your teeth (or doing whatever it is that you do right in the morning), focus on what your intention is for the day and a goal you have for yourself.

Make sure you are standing in front of a mirror!

When you have set your intention, think of a mantra that goes with that intention. See some examples below!

Whatever mantra you have chosen (there is no right or wrong), repeat it 3-5 times while looking at yourself in the mirror.

Focus on your breath in-between reciting your affirmation.

Once you have completed, go and drink 8oz of water before consuming anything else.

Continue to focus on your intention, and then carry on about your day!

Learn the secret powers of daily affirmations for a better life. Treat yourself right and learn to develop your opinion of yourself for ultimate happiness.
