Do you struggle with self-love? Don’t know where to really start on loving yourself. I have been there and I know that the word self-love can sound pretty scary. Especially to someone that doesn’t love themselves.

The best practice I have found on my journey is affirmations for self-love. When I wake up in the morning, I go to the mirror and repeat self-love affirmations.

There is a lot of affirmations listed below. You don’t have to say them all for this to work. Just pick out a couple and say them each morning out loud to yourself.

This will feel funny at first. For me, I felt silly saying positive affirmations to myself. However, it amazingly worked for me.

Also, I made you a printable with all of the affirmations that are in this post.

How To Use Affirmations

Using affirmations is easy to do. There is a lot of hype around affirmations lately. For good reason because they work. Add them to your daily self-care routine in the morning. It will only take a couple of minutes out of your day to do.

Write down only a couple of the affirmations. Go to your mirror and repeat the affirmations out loud. This will also help your subconscious mind pick up on the affirmations. Saying the affirmations out loud is very important.

I have broken the affirmations up into sections. You can look through them all and then pick a couple out from the section that you believe you need to work on.
