At Moreland OB-GYN, we understand one of the most important parts of our job is helping women realize how strong, powerful, and brave they are in everyday life.
Below, we discuss the power of positive affirmations and outline 60+ of our favorite affirmations for women. We also provide tips on creating personalized affirmations and strategies for incorporating affirmations into your everyday life.
Welcome to the world of positivity and empowerment!
What Are Positive Affirmations?
Women navigate various roles and responsibilities. Daily stressors and societal expectations can often make women feel like they are failing, leading them to fall into a pattern of negative self-talk. These negative thoughts can lead to a destructive mindset that can damage self-esteem and self-worth.
Positive affirmations are positive phrases and statements that are repeated to help challenge these negative thoughts and encourage positive thoughts and changes in your life. When you consistently tell yourself positive things, you are reprogramming your brain to focus on the good rather than the negative. This shift in mindset can lead to reduced stress, increased resilience, and improved mental well-being and self-esteem.
From motivation to self-esteem, finding joy in the little things, or removing negative self-talk, positive affirmations help individuals learn to see the positive side of life!
How Do Positive Affirmations Work?
Using positive affirmations to change your thought patterns requires regular practice. Try choosing one or two positive affirmations and reading them when you wake up, regularly throughout the day, and again before bedtime. Make positive thoughts a part of your everyday routine! Change your affirmations to match your life circumstances or master new positive thinking skills.

How to Create Personalized Positive Affirmations
General affirmations can be effective, but crafting personalized positive affirmations allows you to tailor statements to your unique goals and challenges. Creating affirmations that resonate with your experiences can make them more meaningful and impactful.
Below are tips on how you can create personal positive affirmations:
- Reflect on personal goals and challenges, including career, relationships, self-confidence, or specific life aspects requiring focus. Make your affirmations specific to these goals and challenges.
- Identify negative thoughts and transform them into positive, affirming statements. For example, if you struggle with self-doubt at work, turn it into an affirmation like "I am confident and capable in my professional abilities."
- Don’t overthink it, and keep your positive affirmations short and simple. Don’t worry about how they’ll come true; focus on visualizing yourself embodying the positive outcomes described in each statement.
How to Incorporate Positive Affirmations into Your Routine
- Start Your Day with Affirmations: Begin your day by reciting positive affirmations. Reciting affirmations sets a positive tone for the rest of the day.
- Use Affirmations Throughout the Day: Incorporate affirmations into various activities, such as during breaks at work or before important meetings. Incorporating affirmations reinforces positive thinking.
- Create Affirmation Cards: Write down your favorite affirmations on small cards or Post-its and keep them where you'll see them regularly, such as your desk, mirror, or wallet.
- Combine Affirmations with Visualization: As you repeat affirmations, visualize the positive outcomes you are affirming. Visualizing the positive outcomes enhances the impact and makes the affirmations more powerful.
- Stay Consistent: Consistency is key. Make positive affirmations a daily practice to experience their full benefits. If saying your affirmations out loud feels uncomfortable (to the point of discouragement), find something that works for you, like writing them down or recording them and playing them back.
