Wondering how to implement positive affirmations for women? These tips will help you select positive affirmations for your life, and implement them into your daily routine!
How many of you made a New Year's Resolution that sounds like this…..”I'm going to love myself more.” Hands raised right? Self love and seeing the beauty in yourself is VERY important and it's easy to talk about. It's a lot harder to implement practices in your daily life that help you ACTUALLY feel that way. True confidence is hard to find. It takes work and dedication to bring that type of self love into your life, but it is oh so worthwhile. Positive affirmations are an amazing, simple way to work on your mental patterns and internal dialog and in my experience? They do make a huge difference. I wanted to share my own experience and tips surrounding creating positive affirmations for women.
Positive Affirmations for Women
So you guys know I do a version of this with Lydia. Positive Affirmations for kids can make a huge difference in their feelings about themselves, school anxiety and family transitions. And guess what? They work for us too. The key? Repetition and focusing on what is most important to you personally.
Identify No More Than 3 Focus Attributes:
I'm pretty sure we all have a laundry list of things we'd love to improve our outlook on. To start off, select no more than three. Inner beauty? A specific relationship? A goal you are trying to reach? An addiction or habitual behavior you'd like to overcome? Three at most. For me? It's seeing myself as beautiful, seeing myself as a community builder, and being present in my relationships. That's IT. Those are three pretty big goals. And ideally, I'll make progress towards bettering myself in those areas each day. In some way, shape or form.
The next step? Create a sentence or phrase that showcases you having these attributes or working towards them. You're envisioning them being a part of your life and speaking it into being. You're preparing your brain to plan for the work you need to get to these goals. Do I think you manifest them? Debatable. Do I think you put yourself in the mental state to make these priorities happen in your life? Absolutely.
My current phrases?
I am beautiful, everyday and in every state.
I am a community builder, I welcome new amazing women into my community everyday.
I am present in my marriage, my parenting and my friendships. My people need me and I need them.
Decide On Two Times of Day to Repeat Your Affirmations and What Method is Best for You:
Now here's the key. Habit, habit, habit. You actually have to DO THE WORK. That means you will be repeating these phrases to yourself multiple times a day. You decide what works for you. Will this be verbal? Written? In a voice recording on your phone that you listen back to? Think about your ACTUAL day to day routine. What can you implement realistically? When I was rushing out the door to teach in the mornings…..I couldn't have done journal time at home and written my affirmations down. I could however, listen to a recording of MY positive affirmations for women while I drove to work. So a voice recording on my phone? Would have worked well.
Mental change takes TIME. You're rewiring years of negative internal dialog and that doesn't happen overnight. Whether we are talking about positive affirmations for kids or positive affirmations for women, it will be 4-6 weeks before you start to feel a serious change in your outlook. Stay the course. This isn't time consuming. You're committing a few minutes, a few times a day. The input? Is minimal for the output you'll get in return.
Do you do positive affirmations for women or positive affirmations for kids in your family? I'd love to hear your experience!
