How to Create and Use Affirmations Daily?

Affirmations are slowly becoming my favorite part of my morning routine. At first I was skeptical on affirmations and do they really work. It's really hard for me to explain why I didn't like or want to affirmations. I felt they were maybe chatting or like humble brags. I gave it a shot anyways with an open mind.

When I first started working on my morning routine I would mentally and verbally say these affirmations. I would use them during my visualization and mediation. Now I write them down at least 5 times in a notebook.

What is an affirmation? 

A statement of a quality you possess or want to possess usually in the present tense.

Some say it has to be long, but I actually like short and concise. I am someone who suffers from anxiety, and can be triggers in 

Why are affirmations important?

Our body needs to be told things at least 1000 times before it becomes a habit. It can be done thinking, saying, and doing but it has to be done over and over.

Just like goals I have noticed that it my affirmations are specific towards me  and my goals I am more likely to repeat them over and over. Saying "I am awesome!" is great but I can't track it or know when I am get there or accomplish that affirmation.

How to write affirmations that work? 

Most of my affirmations are I am, but you can choose from anything present tense. 
I allow myself..
I choose to be...

I suggest that you don't have a lot of affirmations to start. Our brains can't handle many tasks at once. I only use 3-5 affirmations depending on the day. I have a financial, professional, personal affirmation that I repeat daily. 

Where (and When) can you use affirmations? 

The great thing about affirmations is they can be done anywhere or anytime. When I am feeling anxious I will say affirmation to myself over and over focusing on my breath. If I am getting nervous about situation or event I will say it quietly out-loud to myself.

I also like doing my affirmations in the morning and writing them over and over in a notebook. When we lived in Arizona we had a spare bedroom that I used to get ready in the morning, we had a mirror on the closet door. I used one side as my affirmations. So every morning when I was getting ready I could see them. 

My affirmations: 

  1. My strength is greater than any struggle.
  2. I am getting stronger everyday. 
  3. I have everything to be successful in this moment. 
  4. I am enough. 
  5. I am at peace with my past. I am in love with my present. I am excited for my future. 
  6. Money is unlimited resource & it is always flowing my way. 
Do you use affirmations? What's yours?
