Affirmations 101: 7 Tips to Write Your Own

Writing your own affirmations isn’t as hard as one may think. It can be a bit overwhelming at first. There’s no need to be intimidated though. When I started writing daily affirmations in during the Self Love Project I was a little timid but with practice I felt more comfortable as the days went one. Here are a few helpful tips on how you too can be a master at writing your own affirmations.

  1. Start with the words “I am…..”. That’s how a lot of my affirmations begin. Those two words are super powerful and after all this statement is about who? YOU.
  2. Use the present tense. Write as if you have whatever you desire write now. Example: “I am courageous” if your feel fear creeping in.
  3. Always affirm the positive. Affirm what you want, not what you don’t want.
  4. Short and Sweet. No need to be long and drawn out. Keeping the affirmations short will help make them easier to remember.
  5. Add emotion or feeling words. “I am {emotion} about…. “
  6. Turn negative into positive. If you have a negative thought about yourself, affirm the positive opposite to cancel it out.
  7. Believe in what you’re affirming. You don’t want to see to believe. Sometimes you have to believe to see it.

Alright so those are my quick tips on how to write your own affirmations. Those are what I used to help me get a little more comfortable and confident in writing my own. Ultimately the best tips are to practice writing them everyday and write what feels good.
