How I made affirmations a daily habit

I used to struggle with feeling anxious and overwhelmed on a daily basis. I would often find myself feeling drained and unable to focus on the tasks at hand. I knew that I needed to find a way to break this cycle, so I decided to try using affirmations after hearing how beneficial it can be to us as people.

At first, I was skeptical. I didn’t think that simply repeating a few phrases to myself could have much of an impact. But I was willing to give it a try, so I started by picking out a few affirmations that resonated with me. Some of the ones I chose were “I am capable and strong,” “I am worthy of love and happiness,” and “I am in control of my thoughts and emotions.”

Challenges

It would be unfair on my part to conceal the challenges I faced when I first started using affirmations. Making them a daily habit was a big problem. At times, it was easy to remember to do them in the morning, but as the day went on, I would often forget about them entirely. I would get caught up in my daily tasks and forget to take a moment to repeat my affirmations to myself.

The second challenge I faced was coming up with affirmations that really resonated with me. At first, I just picked a few that I thought were general enough to apply to anyone. But as I started to use them more, I realized that I needed affirmations that were specifically tailored to my own goals and challenges. 

The solution that worked

To help me stay on track, I started using a reminder app on my phone. I set it to go off every few hours, reminding me to take a moment to repeat my affirmations. This helped tremendously and it made it much easier for me to make affirmations a regular part of my daily routine.

To solve the second challenge I faced, I spent some time thinking about what was most important to me and what I wanted to achieve, and I came up with a new set of affirmations that were more personal and meaningful.

Results

Now, affirmations have become an important part of my daily routine. Every day, as soon as I wake up, I would repeat my affirmations to myself. I would say them out loud, looking at myself in the mirror to really connect with the words. It can feel strange to a newbie at first, but you’ll start to notice a difference with time.

Also, I now feel more confident and in control. I am not getting as easily overwhelmed by the things that used to stress me out. I am able to stay focused and productive throughout the day. And best of all, I am starting to actually believe the affirmations I have repeating to myself constantly.

In a nutshell, making affirmations a daily habit has been a game-changer for me. It’s not a magic cure-all, but it has made a big difference in my life worth noting.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
