I use daily affirmations to disrupt my negative inner voice; which situational stress, anxiety and depression have recently made more prominent. Initially, it feels like these motivational phrases are just hollow attempts at ego-boosting, but they really can improve and retrain our mindset if we give them a chance. We're worthy of treating ourselves with kindness and care -- we should celebrate our potential.
Positive affirmations are an accessible way to create self-empowerment. By repeating these uplifting statements throughout the day, we can refocus and retrain our negative thoughts. They encourage us to discover what nourishes confidence and can release us from a cycle of self-sabotage.
