Words have power, and the way we talk to and about ourselves can have a significant impact on our thoughts and behaviors. That’s where affirmations come in—repeating certain phrases to yourself can boost your self-esteem, reduce your stress, create a more positive mindset, motivate you to take certain actions, and improve your overall well-being.

So, how can you start taking advantage of all the benefits that affirmations can offer? Begin by choosing the phrases that will best serve your needs. Here are 10 ideas:

  1. I deserve to be happy.
  2. I’m strong enough to get through this.
  3. My body is beautiful.
  4. I trust myself.
  5. I’m going to be alright.
  6. I can do whatever I put my mind to.
  7. I’m proud of myself.
  8. Today is going to be a great day.
  9. I’m worthy of love.
  10. I’m at peace with the things I can’t control.

Once you’ve selected the affirmations you want to use, decide how you want to incorporate them into your routine—maybe you can say them as you’re getting ready in the morning, commuting to work, or winding down before bed. Many people find it helpful to recite their affirmations out loud, but you can also say them to yourself, if preferred. No matter what, it’s important that you repeat them daily, since doing so makes it easier for your brain to adapt and create new thinking habits.
