While filling out my Kickstarting Wellness Journal, I began with the first prompt, “My intentions for the week…” As I considered this prompt, the idea to write positive affirmations to myself for a week popped into my mind. Each day, I planned to write one affirmation on a post-it note and place it on the mirror in my workout space.
It can be hard to speak kind words to yourself. It’s often easy to compliment or encourage others, but we also spend quite a bit of time criticizing ourselves. We send ourselves mental messages about our body. We think to ourselves that we are not enough. Not good enough, not smart enough, not worthy enough.
I began to write simple affirmations to myself that day, very simple ones.
I invite you to come up with a few positive affirmations you can repeat to yourself throughout the day. Repeat them over and over. Eventually, it will become habitual to treat yourself with the love and respect you deserve.
What I have learned: We deserve to say positive messages to ourselves. WE are worth it!
