Read the set of related affirmations in this post aloud. It’s important to your conscious and subconscious mind to hear the affirmations said in your own voice. Choose one or two of the affirmations from the set to start working with. You only need one or two affirmations, used consistently, to make a substantial change in your life.

Affirmations are most effective when said aloud. Studies have proven that it’s impossible to think a negative thought and make a positive statement aloud at the same time. Use this principle to halt negative thoughts in their tracks and turn them around.

Say your chosen affirmation loud enough for your mind to hear your voice saying the words and take notice of how you feel as you begin and as you continue your practice. Feeling better? Repeat your chosen affirmation at least twice a day – morning, and night – for at least 30 days, and reinforce your affirmation by writing it in your journal.

Affirmations are powerful, positive sentences that can change your mindset. Don’t focus on challenges and lack, but on healthy self-esteem and unshakeable self-confidence. You can leverage the power of affirmations in your life by beginning an affirmation practice – using one or two favorite affirmations over the course of 30 to 60 days to permanently change your mindset and by extension, your life.

Comment below that you’ve started this process. Add entries in your journal each day as to how you’re feeling. Note the positive changes you’ve made and celebrate them! Send me a note using the contact form and let me know how you’re doing!


Loving yourself might be easy to say, but it’s a little harder to do consistently, especially if you’re used to putting yourself on the “back burner” to handle other things in your life. It’s a fact, though, that if you aren’t feeding your heart and soul with love for yourself, everything else in your life gets harder.

You can start using the affirmations below today – read through them silently the first time, then read them aloud. Notice which ones resonate with you immediately, and which ones create a little resistance for you. Take a few minutes and write down two or three of them, and include ones that create that resistance. For the next 21 to 30 days, repeat one or two of these affirmations every day, multiple times each day to help change your mindset and increase your self-love.

It doesn’t have to take a long time to create this affirmation practice, but if you don’t get started, it will NEVER happen. You are worth the time it takes to choose and implement an affirmation practice.
