You may struggle with accepting and loving yourself sometimes. Everyone goes through periods where it seems impossible to overcome negative thoughts. Your own mind can be the biggest battle you face when it comes to self-love. Luckily, self-love affirmations can help.
Affirmations are simple and effective practices that boost positive thoughts about accepting yourself. They can fit easily into your morning or nighttime routines and make a huge difference. If you want to achieve a better relationship with yourself, practice doing these self-love affirmations daily.
What is Self-Love?
Self-love is important because it helps you accept yourself unconditionally and stay dedicated to treating yourself with kindness and respect. It means you nurture yourself to grow into your best version and prioritize well-being. Self-love includes your thoughts and feelings about yourself as well.
When you genuinely love yourself, you have an overall positive view, but that’s not to say there aren’t going to be bad days. It would be unrealistic to say you will always feel positive about yourself. Times like this are where you can zone in on your affirmations. Some ways you can access it if you are practicing self-love are:
- Are you treating yourself like you would treat a friend or someone you love?
- Are you accepting where you are and recognizing you’re doing your best every day?
- Are you working on yourself inside and out?
Why Use Affirmations?
When practiced daily, you can use positive affirmations to reframe your thoughts. One 2016 study has shown using affirmations activates brain systems that restore your self-competence when threatened. Positive affirmations can help reduce stress and make you live life to its fullest potential. Anyone can practice self-love affirmations to improve their sense of self.
Affirmations and How to Use Them
Below is a list of 10 self-love affirmations to do daily. Choose two or three that resonate with you most and add them to your routine. Honestly believe the affirmations you are saying are true and if they are hard to say, try adding “I choose to recognize that” at the beginning of them.
- I love my body and all that it does for me.
- I am worthy of love.
- I respect my own boundaries.
- I am grateful for everything I am.
- I am becoming the person I want to be.
- I choose to speak lovingly to myself.
- I accept myself unconditionally.
- I am open to receiving love.
- Doing my best every day is enough.
- I am compassionate and loving toward myself.
After you choose two or three you feel fit, you can make them your own. Customize your affirmations to make them more specific to your life. For example, if you are having difficulty stepping into a new relationship, instead of “I am worthy of love,” say “I am worthy of love to create my dream relationship.”
A great way to add these to your daily routine is by incorporating them into a daily meditation session. If you want to get into a spiritual flow, meditation is the ultimate spiritual connection between you and the universe. It only has to be five minutes out of your day, but it will make a difference.
Practicing your affirmations constantly will make them more effective. According to a 2009 study, it can take 18 to 254 days for people to form a routine. Habits mean you don’t think about doing it or why you’re doing it. Repeat your affirmations 10 times in a sitting while embracing the feelings that come along with them.
