I’ve noticed that as I get older, I am starting to feel unworthy and like I’m not good enough. You could say my self-esteem is taking a hit. Morning prayers, journaling, and morning affirmations are working for me right now.
I find that when I start my day looking in the mirror and using positive self-talk, the rest of my day goes well! I know it sounds a little weird, but trust me, it works wonders.
Do you feel unworthy, too? Are you starting to feel sad about getting older and maybe even hopeless? If so, these morning affirmations for self-esteem and confidence will be perfect for you!
Why use morning affirmations
Or why use any type of affirmation in the first place? Good question. Affirmations have been around for a really long time, and they still are today for good reason.
Here’s a really interesting article from Health Line that I think you should check out.
So, the purpose of positive affirmations is to retrain our brains. We’re so used to feeding it negative thoughts all day long, that’s all it knows. When we start feeding it more positive thoughts, and not just in the morning but throughout the day, a lot of things change.
Here are a few changes you might experience when you start using morning affirmations to start your day:
- you’ll feel calmer
- you’ll feel happier
- little things won’t stress you out so much
- you’ll tend to smile more
- your reaction to stressful things changes
Pretty decent list of positive changes, right? Now compare that to how you normally feel during the day when you feed your mind with negative and toxic thoughts—such a difference.
How to make morning affirmations work
It’s one thing to say affirmations every morning, but it’s another to make them work. And still, many aren’t even sure if positive affirmations do work. Well, I’m here to tell you they work if you work them right.
So how do you do that?
When you repeat your morning affirmations, say them with vigor, heart, and meaning. Shout them out if you have to, but say them like you mean them.
You need to feel each and every word. You need to feel your affirmations. You need to feel it deep down in your heart and soul.
Now that we got that out of the way, let’s get to the affirmations for confidence that will boost your self-esteem and self-worth.
