Affirmations Work When You Use Them.

Affirmations are short statements and they seem silly when you first start using them, but they’re incredibly powerful. They work best, of course, when you actually use them. This is why keeping affirmations as simple as you can allows you to remember them and put them to work for you.

Affirmations to Try.

There are tons of affirmations you can find that you can reword and rewrite to fit your individual situation. The best ones to use are those that have specific meaning for you, because as you read them and repeat them, they’re going to work on your subconscious thoughts. Here are some affirmations that you might find useful as a caregiver:

  • I gratefully accept help.
  • I make time for myself.
  • I am enough.
  • I am grateful.
  • I forgive myself when I make a mistake.

When to Use Affirmations.

Affirmations are super easy to use. You can write affirmations on sticky notes and place them around your home where you’ll see them as you go about your day. You might also want to spend a few minutes at the beginning and end of every day repeating your chosen affirmations. You can also repeat your affirmations when you’re feeling stressed or upset to help calm you.

Change Them as You Need to Address New Situations.

The best thing about affirmations is that you can switch them out and change them up to meet your needs as they change. You might go through a time when you’re feeling as if you just can’t get everything done, for example. So one of your affirmations might be, “I am efficient and I get all important tasks handled.” Even if it doesn’t feel accurate yet, it will soon.

You may find that you only need affirmations in certain situations or for a short period of time and that’s okay. They’re always there for you if you should find yourself in need of them again.
