We are what we think and speak, which is why repeating positive affirmations daily is a powerful tool for transforming our reality. Using positive affirmations not only reduces stress and boosts our moods but they also give us the strength to live up to our own potential. You might be thinking, This all sounds a little too New Age-y for me. You know what, though? You shouldn’t knock it until you try it. Ultimately, positive affirmations are a simple way to reframe the way you look at yourself. Consider it an experiment in self-care! If after a week or two they don’t feel like your scene, you can always change things up. However, they could be as transformative for you as they are for, well, a lot of people. Then perhaps you’ll realize just how true the old adage “nothing ventured nothing gained” is.

These words of encouragement will also help you get through difficult moments in life when we all need a little motivation to put one foot in front of the other. Need a little pat on the back, boo? We rounded up a slew of positive affirmations that will put a little more pep in your step and get you believing in yourself again.
