Let’s kick things off with a smile, right? Make this one your mantra when dealing with difficult colleagues.
It’s crucial to keep your mental energy up, but negative thoughts can drag you down. Repeat this to focus on the positive and stay productive.
This is another (somewhat amusing) affirmation that will help you stay energized.
Got a job interview or nerve-wracking meeting coming up? Make this your go-to affirmation to stay strong.
There are lots of variations on this one — like “Today is the beginning of something new,” for example. Use it or a variation when you’re coming off a rough or unproductive day to remind yourself that every day is an opportunity to get back on track or start something new.
Turns out, it’s totally OK to go on a power trip once in a while! Especially when you’re facing a daunting week. Empower yourself with this affirmation to keep your energy up.
Another one to make you smile! But it’s an affirmation that can also give you a big dose of self-confidence just when you need it.
Use this affirmation to fight unhealthy work habits or to overcome the values instilled by workplace cultures that demand their workers push themselves to the brink. Everyone needs a break and some self-care not only to be more productive, but also to enjoy greater wellbeing — and this affirmation will remind you of that.
And sometimes, you just can’t! Maybe it’s a sick day, you’re too stressed, or you just don’t have the bandwidth. Whatever it may be, it’s crucial to remember that every day doesn’t have to be a workday. It’s OK to take some time for yourself to reset and recuperate.
Everyone needs a few go-to self-care items: affirmations like these, an affirmations app, or even tasty treats or bath and body items to create a super-soothing spa day.
