From the minute you wake up and check your phone, you get bombarded with messages that can impact your perception of your self worth. Whether it’s unanswered messages, spiteful comments on social media or heartbreaking news headlines, we constantly encounter moments that slowly chip away at our core happiness daily.
That’s why its so valuable to take a break from the noise and give back to your spirit by affirming who you are, where you’ve been, the journey you are on and the love around you. Just like any muscle in our body that needs exercise, food and water to grow – the mental image we have of ourself needs daily nurture to grow and sustain itself.
Some folks find solace in daily prayer, others in yoga but the commonality is finding tranquility to clear your head of all the negativity from the day or day before.
I’ve found that along with prayer, repeating simple words of affirmation have empowered me to tackle my daily stresses with a clearer heart and mind. Here are a few that have helped me:
I love and accept myself exactly as I am.
I am worthy of love.
I compare myself only to my highest self.
God has amazing things planned for me.
I am grateful for the people that I have in my life.
There are so many sources to find affirmations that work for you. Heck, there’s a whole slew of apps dedicated to sending you daily affirmations.
Especially as we enter the winter blues, I hope you look to find some ray of sunshine everyday.
