This week’s highlight to promote self care is the use of positive affirmations and how to incorporate them in your daily life.

I’ll admit that at I’ve never paid much attention to any typ of motivational words of affirmations before. I noticed how Mary Jane (of Being Mary Jane) would have all these quotes on Post-It notes in her room and bathroom and thought, that could never be me. Now, I don’t have post-it notes everywhere, but I have paid more attention to quotes and positive words lately. This year, I have found that starting my day with a positive quote or powerful words to start my day on a positive note helps with my mood for the entire day. I have an app on my phone that notifies me of my new affirmation each day. I even hav th option of recording it in my own voice (pretty cool in my opinion, lol). Whenever I feel like things are going in the wrong direction, I try to focus on my affirmation of the day, and it seems to keep me as grounded as possible. It’s definitely something I have kept in my daily routine to help improve my mood and outlook on the day.
For this week, try to start your day with a positive affirmation as it reflects to something that is causing you worry, stress, anxiety, etc. and see if it helps ease your mind and allow you to think with a positive mindset throughout the day! 🙂
