15 affirmations for self-love

Do you find yourself plagued with self-doubt? Do you struggle to see your true worth and value? Are you looking for a way to boost happiness and confidence? If so, then read on! We’ve put together 15 affirmations for self-love that we know will help.


What are affirmations?

Affirmations are positive statements that, when repeated frequently, can be a powerful tool to refine your internal dialogue. Self-love affirmations can be a simple reminder to yourself that you are loved, valuable and capable, and can help to combat a lack of self-belief, increase happiness, and boost confidence.

An affirmation doesn’t have to be something big or profound in order to be effective. In fact, the smaller they are, the more impactful they will have when you repeat them often enough. Affirmations work because each time you say them, you are sending a message to your subconscious mind. It may take a while before the messages reach that deeper processing centre of the brain, but rest assured they will eventually get there.

How to use affirmations

Using affirmations is simple: find a quiet space and repeat your affirmation out loud. You can say it in front of a mirror or just talk to no one in particular. The important thing is that you say it with feeling and conviction. It’s not just about repeating words – it’s actually an exercise of the will and involves the power of your mind so treat it as such. They can also be used as a daily ritual before bedtime.

Affirmations are a wonderful way to reflect back on your day and notice what you are grateful for in life.

The below affirmations will help you to reprogramme your subconscious mind, and replace the old negative self-beliefs with new positive ones.
