This post ‘Increase your self-esteem by composing affirmations’ continues with techniques to increase your self-esteem.


Increase your self-esteem by composing affirmations:

It is important to clarify and visualize your values. They are the building blocks of who you are and want to become.

A way to both use visualizations and validate yourself is to repeat affirmations.

When you formulate your affirmations it is helpful to make them:

1 Emotionally charged

2 Include Positive statements

3 Use first person

4 Use present tense as if you already are living by your core values and have achieved the related goal

I feel proud and alive for choosing healthier food and exercise

I feel harmonious and proud of my mindful, kind and calm traits

I like myself regardless of how things turn out. I believe in endurance and effort

I feel joy and gratitude for actively using my time on what matters in my life: my children and hobbies
