It is a constant in this world that we as individuals are just too judgemental of ourselves. It is important to maintain the positive ambitious thoughts & dreams in our minds and to ward off the negative thoughts that aim to bring us down. Affirmations may seem funny to say out loud at first, so I find even writing them down has been helpful to keep me motivated & driven. Here is a collection of 10 powerful affirmations to bolster your positivity and inner strength.
Your opinion matters
Your possibilities are endless
You are strong enough to achieve all your goals
You are worthy of your dreams
Your fear is only temporary
You are confident to act in spite of fear
You are persistent and will not give up.
You are worthy of love and all the joys the world can offer
You are enough.
I’ve found that incorporating affirmations and being more grateful for the little things in life, are some of the easiest ways to bring light into any day. Similar to the effect of simply smiling to trick the mind into a happier disposition.
There are a lot of other self-care practices that I have been trying out to bring more calm and joy into the mundane and stressful days in my life. Such as taking days(or nights) to pamper myself, for example, last night I poured some warm water in a large bowl with some of my favourite Lush shower gel and dipped my feet, then scrubbed, moisturised and painted my toes, whilst reading a new book. Taking that time made it a lot easier to tackle the week ahead, which for me is filled with meetings, social outings and parties galore.
