7 Benefits to Positive Affirmations for Women

  1. Positive Affirmations Help You To Be More Mindful

Using daily affirmations helps you to stay in the present moment and keeps you from being distracted by feeling angry about past mistakes or anxious about the future.

Affirmations are positive statements about you in the present tense, your mental focus stays on what is happening to you right now, which is the core of mindfulness.

  1. Daily Affirmations Open You Up To More Blessings

Your daily affirmations help you concentrate on the good things that you want in your life and changes your expectations of what you deserve.

As a result, you are more open to receiving, without being clouded by self-doubt or worries about being deserving enough.

  1. Self Affirmations Change Your Perspective

As your attention stays on what is important to you, the little things that used to irritate you seem less and less important.

Conversely, things you took for granted, like good health and a loving family, become part of your gratitude practice.

How to create your own affirmations to change your life

How can you create your own daily affirmations to change your life?

My tips to help you create your own personal and powerful positive affirmations:

  • Choose Positivity     

You may not realize it but you’re already using affirmations all the time. The problem is, most of us tend to repeat negative statements like “I can’t do it,” “I’ll never get ahead” or “life is hard.”

Pay attention to your thoughts and see how often you’re using negative affirmations that keep you stuck in self-doubt and negativity.

You can choose to turn around your self-talk and build positive affirmations so that all your thoughts are supporting your life goals.

  • Keep Affirmations Short

You can create powerful positive affirmations by making sure the language you use is focused and brief.

A simple, straightforward statement will be much more effective than a long one.

  • Choose Your Words Carefully

Don’t use emotive language or words that are negative.

Focus on what you want rather than what you don’t want.

For example, a positive weight loss affirmation is “I am slender,” not “I am not fat.” Even saying, “I am losing weight” is focusing on the negative.

  • Stick to the Present Tense

Use “I am“ statements to focus your mind on what you want.

Saying “I will” or “I want” pushes your goal out into the indefinite future and doesn’t inspire you to reach your goal now.

  • Use Visual Language that Feels Good

Think of how you want to feel when you reach your goal.

Will you feel happy, grateful, relaxed?

Choose words that create a powerful, positive image “I feel strong and full of energy.” See yourself running that marathon or buying new clothes that fit perfectly.

Build a daily positive affirmation habit

Positive affirmations are more powerful when they are repeated until they become part of your mindset.

  • Make a commitment to yourself that you will repeat your affirmations out loud, at least three times a day. Schedule affirmation time by setting a reminder on your device.
  • Feel relaxed and happy as you repeat your affirmations. Feel what it will be like when you achieve your goals.

When you focus your attention on what you want to be true in your life, you are much more likely to achieve it.

Align your thoughts, feelings, and actions with your affirmations, so all your energy is flowing to achieving your goals.

And live your best life with YOU in control.
