How Do You Use Night Affirmations?

Next, to create your own positive self-talk and make daily night affirmations work, these tips are essential!

1. You MUST Believe Them

Affirmations like “I sleep 11 hours a night” or “every night I sleep deeply” don’t work because they are hard to believe. Within days, you’ll feel as though you’re lying to yourself and give up affirmations entirely.

Instead, focus on your effort (I calm my mind).

2. Use Emotion & Visualization

Affirmations work best when you engage your emotions. If you seek a calm and relaxing evening, visualize what that looks like. Then, imagine how you feel and how at peace you are.

3. Repeat Often

A few nights may not be enough to make a noticeable impact on how you feel. So, keep saying your sleep affirmations daily for at least three weeks and then evaluate if your thoughts feel more positive and restful at night.

4. Say Sleep Affirmations in First Person, Present tense

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

5. Say Them Before Falling Asleep

Finally, make saying your evening affirmations one of the last things you do before you fall asleep. This simple trick will give your mind positive thoughts to chew on while you sleep.

Sleep Affirmations Benefits

Before you go, you should know that there are all kinds of great benefits to self-affirmation aside from better sleep. Some of them include:

  • a more positive view of yourself (increased self-worth)
  • decreased stress and increased well-being
