Easy Affirmations for Women in the Bright Morning Light

I was shocked recently. In a good way.

I completed a group challenge that included saying affirmations for sixty seconds, every morning in front of a camera.

Now, I love doing challenges. So, I thought this one would be fascinating, but ultimately no big deal. Boy, was I wrong.

In terms of effort, it was as easy as I imagined. I already had morning affirmations (for women) written out that I wanted to say. And it took exactly one minute.

Yet, stunningly, this challenge turned out to be the thing I looked forward to most in my morning (which is HUGE because I love my morning routine).

Saying the affirmations out loud felt glorious. Powerful. And intense.

I always left with more purpose going into the day.

And I began to wonder how a short sixty seconds could make such a big impact on how I felt.

The Benefits of Affirmations

So, I did a little digging. As it turns out, our thoughts are everything.

“What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create.”

Buddha

Affirmations can rewire the brain to improve positive self-perception, self-esteem, confidence, and problem-solving abilities.

Furthermore, with this positive self-talk, a neural process occurs that helps you imagine positive events over negative ones and a change in behavior (source). Ultimately leading to easier changes and better handling the obstacles that come your way.

Plus, those that use affirmations stress and ruminate less (source). Double win!

And finally, affirmations wrap into our identity. Who we are is made up entirely by who we think we are. For example, if you identify as a runner, you’re MUCH more likely to run.

Gosh, no wonder sixty seconds in the morning gave such a happiness boost!

Next, let’s look at beautiful affirmation examples, and then read on for how to make your unique affirmations work for you.

How to Make Affirmations Effective

how to make morning affirmations for women effective

Next, while all of the daily affirmations above work well, there are five additional tips to using morning affirmations (for women) that make them astonishingly effective.

1. You MUST Believe Them

Affirmations like “I’m skinny” or “I make a million bucks” don’t work because they may simply not be true. Within days, you’ll feel as though you’re lying to yourself and give up affirmations entirely.

Instead, choose something like “I work hard and am committed to a lean, toned body.”

2. Use Your Values in Your Affirmations

Affirmations should be personal. Prioritize the values that you hold in your life to focus your affirmations on what matters to YOU.

If you value your work, try: “my work makes a positive impact on others.”

If you value your friends, try: “my friends are a a positive light in my life.”

3. Use Your Goals in Your Affirmations

What are you working on? Use daily morning affirmations to help yourself make the progress! This is a huge secret advantage!

Try “I am a runner,” and then spend a few minutes every day running. Before you know it, you’ll be working your way to longer increments, and beginning to identify as a runner.

4. Use Emotion & Visualization

Affirmations work best when you engage your emotions. If your core value is being calm with your kids, picture what that looks like. Then, imagine how you feel (even in tough situations). Strive for that feeling during the day.

5. Say Them in First Person, Present tense

Finally, it helps to say affirmations as though you are actively doing them. This draws on emotions and you can visualize your preferred outcome. It’s yet another phenomenal way to motivate yourself into action.

Something to Consider with Your Self-Talk

As I found, daily affirmations can be an outstanding tool in the toolbox of life.

So, for anyone looking to be intentional about what they say to themselves, this type of self-talk is a must-try.
