On mornings that I’m feeling great and super inspired, I write 3-5 affirmations in a journal. Some mornings I wake up a little tired, irritable, or not very motivated. On these days I write 20-25 affirmations. I say them out loud (which feels silly at first) and use what I wrote to counter any negative self-talk throughout the day. The days that were not feeling our best is when we need to show ourselves the most love.

Transform Your Thoughts With Affirmations
Words are so very powerful. When we were younger we were taught to speak kindly to others. However, I don’t remember being told to speak kindly to myself. We spend more time conveying messages within ourselves than anyone else. We have the power to transform our way of thinking and living just by changing our self-talk.
If at some point today you think “I can’t do that”, don’t be afraid to disagree with yourself. Simply counter that statement with “I can accomplish any task put before me”. Also, don’t feel like you have to come up with new affirmations each day. There’s power in repetition so go with the ones you feel you need the most each day.
Counter Negative Feelings With Positive Thoughts
We live in a world where we’re subjected to things that cause fear, anxiety and even hopelessness. The best way to cope with these feelings is to counter them with positive thoughts. We certainly don’t have to believe every thought we think or every emotion we feel. That’s where affirmations are most helpful.
