    Facing Challenges and Adversity

    I use positive affirmations often throughout my day, but I’ve found that the times I need them the most is when I’m facing a challenge or difficult situation. However, in order for a positive affirmation to truly help me with the challenge I’m facing, I can’t just say something positive; I have to truly feel it in my bones.

    What does this mean?

    Let’s say you wake up knowing that today’s going to be a particularly difficult day. You look at yourself in the mirror, take a deep breath, and say, “I have all the tools I need to handle anything that comes my way today.”

    These words alone won’t help you – not if you don’t truly believe them.

    And beyond that, you have to live them as well.

    That means that when you’re dealing with obstacles and challenges, instead of giving in to the negative feelings that weigh down on you, you have to go back to your empowering words. Repeat them. Feel them. Live them.

    I have all the tools I need to handle anything that comes my way today.

    I am strong, capable, and competent.

    I’ve got this.

    But it doesn’t stop here.

    Because it isn’t really just about “handling” or “getting through” obstacles and roadblocks.

    It’s about knowing in your heart that these hard times are serving some kind of purpose. It’s about being willing to receive the lessons that the difficult moments can teach you. It’s about discovering the beauty that can be found in life’s messy moments.

    And it’s also about trusting that if things aren’t working out the way you want them to, it’s often because something better is coming.

    To be clear, this doesn’t mean you should engage in toxic positivity. You don’t have to force yourself to pretend that the hardships don’t hurt.

    One of the most profound experiences I’ve encountered over the last several years was when I was going through a rough patch, and I found myself crying daily, feeling sad and lost and uncertain about my future.

    I allowed myself to feel all of that pain, but even in the sadness, I still had deep trust that everything would work out for me. I knew in my heart that I would become stronger for this experience. I gave myself permission to explore the depths of my emotions fully while still knowing that the universe would support me and have my back no matter what.

    After walking through that experience with faith and trust, I became a little less afraid of future challenges and roadblocks. I knew that in some way, every experience I encountered was a gift, no matter how heavy the world often felt.

    I believe we’re all capable of handling so much more than we realize. You are so much stronger and braver and more powerful than you know. You have the ability to face any obstacle, and you also have the ability to step back and discover how your greatest challenges can often be your greatest gifts.

    Below are 40 positive affirmations for overcoming challenges, facing adversity, and walking through hard times with dignity and grace. I hope these affirmations remind you that you are strong, capable, and resilient, and that you are capable of meeting all challenges with faith, courage, and undeniable resilience.

    What is the Root Chakra?

    Located at the base of your spine, your root chakra is your energy center for safety, stability, and staying grounded. You may also hear it referred to as your first chakra, as it’s the lowest energy center in your body.

    As the chakra located closest to the earth, the root chakra represents your foundation. This is where you build your inner strength and power so that the flow of energy can easily move freely throughout your entire body.

    When your root chakra is balanced, this means that your basic needs are being met: food, shelter, warmth, rest, security, and safety. It also means that you have a good relationship with your body and that you recognize your body’s ability to support and take care of you.

    A balanced root chakra also signifies that you feel firm in your place of life. Now, to be clear, this doesn’t mean you have to settle or that you can’t have hopes and dreams for something more. Rather, it means that in this moment, you know you’re exactly where you’re meant to be. It signifies that you trust the path ahead and aren’t living in a space of worry and fear.

    If you want to learn more about practices to balance your root chakra, you can check out my post on root chakra healing practices here.

    Below, you’ll find 35 root chakra affirmations to help you feel strong, grounded, and secure. You can use these root chakra affirmations in meditation, or you can save them and repeat them whenever your energy feels out of balance and/or misaligned.

    I also recommend incorporating root chakra affirmations into your morning routine, as they set you up to approach the day feeling strong and empowered. This means that no matter what happens during the day, you’ll remain calm and peaceful, knowing that you live in a universe that always supports your well-being.

    Discovering Affirmations

    In 2014, my introduction to affirmations came in the form of body positive affirmations.

    I had found a list of 100 body positive affirmations somewhere online and decided to copy it and email it to myself. While I would love to tell you that this discovery propelled me into a journey of total and complete self-love, I’m pretty sure that email stayed at the bottom of my inbox for the next couple years, untouched and ignored.

    While I wanted to accept my body completely, I had a hard time accepting myself if I didn’t fit into a perfect box. I really only wanted to love my body on the condition that I could change it and mold it into something that society would deem beautiful.

    The following years were filled with hardship and heartbreak as I battled with the girl I saw in the mirror, but I wouldn’t trade those years for anything as they allowed me to learn and grow into the confident, self-loving woman I am now.

    Back then, I also had no idea how to truly use affirmations. I saw them as nice and uplifting words but didn’t understand their inherent power. I wasn’t sure how to get the words on the screen to resonate inside me.

    And if you’re in that place, too, that’s okay. I’ve included some tips below to help you with using body positive affirmations so that they truly resonate with you.

    I recommend using the body-positive affirmations in this post in tandem with other types of affirmations, like these affirmations for self-love and these ones for self-confidence. I find that body positive affirmations can be most powerful when used with other types of affirmations that don’t just focus on your body but on all parts of you: your heart, your spirit, your kindness, and your inherent and undeniable worthiness.

    How to Use Body Positive Affirmations

    While the notes I’m about to give are certainly true for all types of affirmations, I want to emphasize them especially for body positive affirmations because this can be a sensitive subject for many.

    You may come to an affirmation in the list below that just feels off. What do I mean by that? Here’s an example:

    Imagine that you’re reading the affirmation, “My body is truly beautiful.” You recite it, trying to feel the positive emotions associated with these words, but in the back of your mind, you hear a little voice that says, yeah right.

    While you definitely want to be able to say this affirmation with confidence, you’re still on a path of healing your body insecurities, and you’re not quite yet at a place where you can assert that your body is truly beautiful.

    And that’s okay.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with you if you experience discomfort with any of the affirmations below (or any affirmations at all, for that matter).

    First, if you experience this, release any self-judgment or self-criticism over your discomfort. Know that it’s okay to be exactly where you are in your healing journey. Have compassion for where you currently are, and remember that you don’t have to race to the finish line all at once.

    You have the right to take this one step at a time, at your own pace.

    When I discover an affirmation that I don’t feel completely comfortable with, I like to employ what I call the Ladder Method. In this method, I take a step back from the original affirmation and alter it in a way that feels more comfortable for me.

    For instance, I might use the phrases I am open to . . . or I am willing to . . . in my newly altered affirmation.

    Let’s try this with the affirmation I used above: My body is truly beautiful.

    How can I alter this in a way that will feel more comfortable for me? I could say, I am open to seeing all the ways in which my body is truly beautiful. Or, I am willing to believe that my body is truly beautiful.

    You might use your altered affirmation for a few weeks before taking the next step closer to the original affirmation. Your next step might be something like this: Even though I don’t always see it, I know in my heart that my body is truly beautiful.

    Feel empowered to modify any of the affirmations below so that they’ll feel more comfortable for you. It’s also completely okay to skip an affirmation and choose to solely focus on the ones that feel good to you. In time, you might decide to come back to the list and see if any of the other affirmations begin to resonate a little more.

    Remember: take this at your own pace, and show yourself unconditional kindness and compassion, no matter what.

    Cultivating Happiness

    When I turned five years old, I remember blowing out the candles on my birthday cake and making a wish for limitless candy that I could eat whenever I wanted. M&M’s were my favorite, but I wasn’t super picky: chocolate candy, fruity candy, hard candies and lollipops . . . I’d take it all.

    Okay, maybe not all. Black licorice and spicy candies were a hard pass.

    As the next couple years passed by, I’d continue to make wishes for new toys, CDs, and my own stereo so I could lock myself in my room and jam out to Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys without interruptions.

    I don’t remember when the transition happened, but at some point, a realization had occurred to me. Toys, CDs, and limitless candy were all cool, but what if there was a way that I could have all of that and more?

    What if there was one word that could give me everything I had ever wanted?

    Happiness.

    If I wished for happiness, I thought, that meant that I’d get everything I wanted without there being a catch. I’d get all the things I’d been dreaming of, plus my friends and family would be healthy and happy, too.

    It was a win-win for everyone.

    My concept of happiness was simple when I was a sweet ten-year-old who wanted nothing more than to ride bikes and read books and jump on my best friend’s trampoline. After I graduated high school and began navigating my way through college, I spent a lot of time relearning what happiness truly meant, often overcomplicating it and sometimes believing it would always be just out of reach.

    I’ve come full circle since then, once again simplifying my definition of happiness, but I’ve also learned something that I didn’t quite understand as a young girl.

    My happiness never came from all the candy or toys or CDs or any of the things I was given. Sure, those things brought me fleeting moments of joy, but lasting happiness didn’t come from things.

    Lasting happiness, I learned, comes from within.

    I’ve learned that happiness comes when I make happiness a priority, and even more importantly, happiness comes when I choose it.

    And what I’ve discovered most of all is that happiness is not a result of getting everything I want; happiness comes when I feel grateful for everything I already have.

    When I view my life from a perspective of appreciation and abundance rather than scarcity and lack, happiness and joy flow effortlessly into my inner and outer worlds.

    Below, you’ll find 45 positive affirmations for happiness and joy. These affirmations are designed to help you cultivate a mindset of true joy and appreciation, allowing you to feel grateful for all that you have in this moment. They’re also meant to remind you that you are worthy and deserving of happiness right now. Happiness is your birthright, and you were created to live a life of pure joy and abundance.

    A Case of the Mondays

    Monday morning.

    Typically, these two words are met with audible groans and thinly veiled resentment.

    If you’re like me, Monday has been something of a supervillain throughout your life. Growing up, it represents the end of a weekend of freedom and the return to school with all of its structure and rules. And as you get older, well, that doesn’t change very much, but now school has been replaced with a 40+ hour work week and loads of responsibility.

    And the thing about this supervillain? There is no defeating it.

    No matter how hard you may wish, there’s nothing in the universe that can cause Monday to just magically go away.

    But . . . what if there was a way to defeat it?

    No, you can’t make Mondays disappear into oblivion, but what if you could do something even better?

    What if you could make Monday the hero of your story?

    At the end of every year, we strap on our dancing shoes (okay, maybe our fuzzy socks) and change into our best outfits (or favorite pajamas) and celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of a new one. A new year is a blank slate. It represents fresh starts and new beginnings.

    So what if we treated Mondays like this as well?

    Monday is the beginning of a brand new week, and it, too, is a blank slate. You can create anything with a brand new Monday. It’s the ultimate fresh start, and the truly incredible thing is, we get to experience it 52 times a year.

    Monday sets the tone for your entire week, so why not take back your power and embrace it with positivity? Flip the phrase “a case of the Mondays” on its head. Let it be something wondrous and kind of magical.

    You get to choose how you want to greet this new week.

    Choose joy. Choose wonder. Choose delight.

    Choose to view Monday as a miracle. Let that feeling wash over you, and step into Monday with enthusiasm, knowing you are exactly where you’re meant to be, creating the beautiful life of your dreams.

    65 Positive Affirmations for Success

    Success is your birthright, and you are absolutely worthy and deserving of experiencing success in every area of your life. In this article, discover 65 positive affirmations for success to inspire you to confidently step forward in the direction of your goals and dreams.

    Defining Success

    What is success?

    The truth is, I can’t answer that question.

    Not for you, at least.

    One of the most important lessons I’ve learned over the past few years is that we each have the right to define success on our own terms.

    So when you ask the question, “What is success?” the only person who can give you an answer that feels true and authentic for you is you.

    Success may mean meeting or exceeding an income goal. It may mean a promotion or external recognition of your hard work. It might also mean your family is safe and healthy, and your home is filled with joy and love.

    Success may mean that you took the next step toward living the life of your dreams.

    And still, success may mean letting go. Success may mean surrender. Success may mean you didn’t get what you wanted, but you can see how maybe each obstacle and perceived failure is leading you to somewhere better than you had imagined.

    Success may mean you woke up today, and you put one foot on the ground, and then the other, and here you are, still breathing. Still living. Still trying, no matter how heavy the air around you feels.

    And that – that is worth everything.

    So as you read through these positive affirmations for success, give yourself permission to define success on your own terms. Think about what success really means to you.

    Not to your boss. Not to your parents. Not to the world outside yourself.

    But to you.

    And know that whatever your definition of success is, you are worthy of experiencing it fully.

    You are worthy of a life of true joy, freedom, and bliss. You are worthy of the success you’ve been dreaming about, even if it looks different than what someone else would define as “successful.”

    Follow the call of your soul. Listen to your own inner voice. Step forward on the path your heart is leading you on.

    And know that you are always, always worthy of your deepest dreams and desires.

    Positive Affirmations for Success

    These positive affirmations for success are designed to inspire you to continue forward in both the good moments and the bad, no matter how you define success for yourself. And as always, these affirmations are here to remind you of your inherent worthiness–because you are always worthy.

    43 Creativity Affirmations To Inspire Your Imagination

    You are a talented and prolific creator, and you deserve to life a life of infinite joy and abundant creativity. In this article, discover 43 creativity affirmations to uplift your spirit and inspire your limitless imagination.

    creativity affirmations

    A Creative Life

    For as long as I can remember, creativity has played a central role in my life.

    Growing up, I lived in my imagination. I started writing short stories when I was seven, and some of my earliest writing memories were creating my own “deleted scenes” to my then all-time favorite movie: Spice World.

    As a kid, it was easy and effortless to use my limitless imagination to dream beyond the confines of my physical reality. I never had to force new and inspired ideas to come to me; they just came when I called them.

    There were no limits to what I could dream of and create.

    As I got older, though, I began to lose touch with my imagination. While I’d still write and draw and seek new creative outlets, I began to let limiting beliefs sink into my consciousness.

    Here were some of those limiting beliefs:

    • That my creativity was limited.
    • That my creativity was only worthwhile if it was subjectively good and pleasing to others.
    • That “bad” creativity was not worthwhile.
    • That there was a limited amount of creative ideas within me.
    • That creativity was hard.
    • That there are people who are just more talented than me, and thus, their creative endeavors are more worthwhile than mine.

    Do any of these ring true for you?

    It’s been a long but worthwhile journey to release these limiting beliefs and realign with my inner child – the girl who knew that she could change the world with just her imagination.

    This is what I now know is true, not just for me, but for you, too:

    • You have access to an infinite abundance of inspired ideas and limitless creativity.
    • Your creativity is worthwhile, no matter what others may think.
    • You are a creative being, and it is right for you to create.
    • You are good enough.
    • Anything you can imagine, you can create.
    • You are limitless.

    Below, you’ll find 43 affirmations to inspire your divine creativity. Use these affirmations when you’re in a flow state to remain open to the flow of your infinite creativity, and recite them when you’re feeling blocked to realign with your truths. Additionally, I’ve included some tips that have helped me to open myself up to my inner creative and release blockages when they arise.

    Tips to Inspire Creativity

    Release Perfectionism

    Perfectionism is the enemy of all creative endeavors. For many of us, if we worked on a single project until it was perfect, we’d be working on it forever.

    But there comes a time when we have to let something go and know that what we’ve done is enough.

    I’ll even take this one step further and say that not only should you release perfectionism, but there’s something kind of wonderful about embracing imperfections. There’s beauty to be found in the broken, flawed, and imperfect pieces we create.

    Don’t Edit

    Not while you’re creating, at least. If you’re in the flow of creativity, editing is one of the fastest ways to break the flow. Save editing for the end. When you do this, you’ll often be surprised by what you come up with.

    Let Yourself Be Bad

    This goes hand-in-hand with Don’t Edit. If you only create when you know you can produce something subjectively good, you’re unconsciously building blockages for yourself. But when you embrace all the flaws and imperfections of your creation, the “bad” often leads to something wonderful.

    Try Something New

    Writing is my creative outlet of choice, but sometimes, I need a break after writing for hours every single day. Letting myself paint, draw, color, and find other creative practices is like a sigh of relief for my soul. It replenishes my creative energy and never fails to produce new writing ideas I wouldn’t have thought of without these other outlets.

    Put Away Your Phone

    This is something I’ve had to learn to do, as I found that whenever I paused for a moment while I was writing, I’d instinctively reach for my phone. Now, I try to dedicate time purely to creating without any external distractions. This has vastly improved my creative flow, and I’ll admit, it’s kind of nice not to have my phone in my peripheral vision all the time.

    Heal Your Chakras

    Located in your lower abdomen, below the navel, the Sacral Chakra is your body’s energy center for creativity, joy, passion, and play. And the Third Eye Chakra, located between your eyebrows, is your body’s energy center for insight, intuition, and imagination. When these energy centers are open and balanced, you are aligned with your most creative and inspired self.

    Creativity Affirmations

    Protecting Your Energy

    One of the greatest self-care practices you can do on a daily basis is to protect your energy.

    But what exactly does this mean?

    Protecting your energy means choosing how you think and feel rather than allowing outside forces to dictate your thoughts and emotions.

    It means that no matter what’s happening in the outer world, you’re able to cultivate a beautiful inner world through your own thoughts, beliefs, and choices.

    And it means being true to your authentic self and not hiding or denying a single part of yourself for anything or anyone.

    Finally, it also means holding yourself accountable. For instance, if you’re in a group that’s gossiping about someone you know, you have the choice to engage in the gossip or step away. At all times, you can ask yourself, what action best serves my positive energy?

    Another question I like to ask is, what path feels most like love to me?

    For the example above, if love feels like walking away from gossip, then that’s the best thing you can do in that moment to protect your energy. Because ultimately, the best energy protector is love itself.

    Love might feel like morning meditations. It might feel like a walk in nature. It may feel like spending every Wednesday night alone, practicing self-care.

    In all instances, you can choose the path that feels like love to support and protect your divine energy.

    Below, I’ve listed seven powerful practices you can incorporate into your daily life to protect your energy. These practices range from using crystals and water as an energy purifier to taking social media breaks and setting loving boundaries. I encourage you to find the practices that resonate the most and begin to use them each day to protect your whole self: mind, body, and soul.

    And again, because it can’t be emphasized enough:

    The greatest way to protect your energy is to follow the path that feels like love.

    Love will always protect you. Love will always heal you. Love is your superpower.

    How to Protect Your Energy

    Affirmations

    Protecting your energy from external toxicity all starts with your mindset.

    While all of the practices on this list are powerful in helping you to protect your energy, nothing is as powerful as knowing that you are in control of your thoughts and that you’re the only one who gets to choose how you feel.

    That’s why I’m putting affirmations at the top of this list. Using positive affirmations (and truly believing them!) is a powerful way to own your energy and decide how you want to feel in any given moment.

    When I first started using affirmations, I used them all the time: when I woke up, as I got ready in the morning, while I worked out, as I was driving, while I cooked dinner, as I got ready for bed, and anytime the opportunity presented itself to embrace positive thinking.

    Eventually, though, this practice lessened: not because I suddenly forgot about affirmations but because the powerful words had become a part of me.

    I no longer had to constantly affirm that I was worthy because I knew in every cell of my being that I was undeniably and unconditionally worthy, no matter what.

    That’s why affirmations can be so powerful when it comes to protecting your energy. In the beginning, you may need to remind yourself to repeat them, but in time, the powerful, protective words will become a part of you.

    Below, you’ll find a list of affirmations for protecting your energy. You can also find more protection affirmations to guard your energy in this post.

    Affirmations for Protecting Your Energy
    • I am in charge of my own energy. I choose how I feel in every moment.
    • I am the only one who gets to choose how I feel.
    • I am choosing to feel grounded, calm, peaceful, and secure.
    • I am safe and supported, rooted in this present moment.
    • I have the power to rise above negative emotions that do not serve me.
    • Even when the world around me feels chaotic, I remain rooted firmly to the ground.
    • When I’m feeling overwhelmed, I allow myself space to pause and breathe.
    • I vibrate powerful, abundant, peaceful energy and attract this same energy in return.
    • I am strong, steady, and grounded.
    • I am always supported and protected.
    • I deeply appreciate my ability to remain calm and peaceful in all situations.
    • I am grateful for the abundance of strength that radiates throughout my entire body.
    Affirmations to protect your energy

    Crystals

    Crystals are a powerful resources for protecting your energy and helping you to remain grounded, stable, and secure.

    My personal favorite way to use crystals for energy protection is to wear them as jewelry, as this allows me to remain protected throughout the day, no matter where I go. I also like to keep protective stones in spaces where I know I might encounter some negative external energy, such as in my workspace and in the car. And if you’re doing an energy protection meditation, holding protective gemstones in your hands while meditating can be a powerful way to amplify your intentions.

    To learn more about how to cleanse, program, and use crystals, you can check out my blog post on how to use crystals here.

    Here’s a list of crystals and stones you can wear, carry, or keep in your space to protect you from toxic energy:

    • Hematite
    • Obsidian
    • Onyx
    • Black Tourmaline
    • Shungite

    If you want to learn more about the specific meanings of each stone, I’ve got you covered in this article on grounding crystals for stability and energy protection.

    Water

    For centuries, various cultures and religions have used water as a way to cleanse, purify, heal, and help one reach spiritual enlightenment. Don’t underestimate the power of water to cleanse your aura from toxic energy. Just like water can cleanse the energy of a crystal, water can cleanse your own energy both within and outside of you in a profound way.

    Ideally, you’d be able to spend time at the ocean or near a lake or river whenever you need a spiritual reset. But if that isn’t possible, that’s okay! A shower or a bath works just as well in cleansing your energy.

    One of my favorite practices is to meditate in the shower by imagining the water washing away any negativity within or around me. This practice only takes a minute or two but can positively affect your energy throughout your day.

    First, close your eyes. Take a deep, soulful inhale and a rejuvenating exhale. Concentrate on how the water feels on your skin. As the water falls around you, imagine it washing away any negative thoughts and emotions you’re holding onto. The water takes your tension and carries it to the drain. Anything that doesn’t serve your highest good is washed away from your body.

    Feel your body becoming lighter. Your mind is clear. Your heart is open. Anything that doesn’t serve or support your total well-being has been washed away, swirling down the drain, where it will be cleansed by the earth.

    When you’re done, smile and express gratitude. Feel the strength of your body, mind, and spirit.

    You are worthy, powerful, whole, and more than enough. Carry those feelings with you throughout your day.

    Visualization

    When you feel like you’re surrounded by negative energy, visualization can be a profound way to replace any negativity in your auric field with positivy, protection, and love.

    While you may associate visualization exercises with meditation, you can actually take a moment to practice visualization almost anytime during the day.

    For instance, let’s say that you’re at work, and the energy of your coworkers, employees, and/or customers feels especially negative today. People are stressed and blaming each other for mistakes. The air around you feels tense, and that tension is starting to seep into your body, mind, and spirit.

    Take a moment to step back from the outer world. Close your eyes. Imagine a beautiful light is surrounding your entire body. This light might be white, gold, purple, or any other color that resonates with you. See that light protecting your body from any negative external energy that tries to seep in. Visualize yourself walking through your day, being protected by this light at all times.

    Know that you are always, always being divinely guided and protected. No amount of toxic energy can break through the loving shield of the Universe.

    Breathing Exercises

    A breathing exercise is conscious, purposeful breathing with the intention of calming the mind, relieving stress, improving your lung function, and grounding yourself to the present moment.

    What I love about breathing exercises is that it feels like a mini-meditation that you can do practically anytime and anywhere.

    Breathing exercises can be powerful practices to protect your energy because they allow you to step back from the external world and return to your inner self. And when you return to your inner self, you can release the stress and overwhelm of the outer world and cultivate a sense of calmness, peace, and groundedness within.

    My personal favorite breathing exercise is alternate nostril breathing, which you can read more about here.

    Another simple yet powerful practice is the 4-7-8 breathing technique. In this practice, you inhale through your nose for 4 seconds, pause at the top of your inhale for 7 seconds, and exhale through your mouth for 8 seconds. Repeat this 4 to 8 times in a session.

    Often, at the end of a breathing exercise, I’ll recite a few grounding affirmations to affirm that I’m in control of my thoughts and emotions. You don’t have to do this, but if you want, you can give it a try and see if this practice resonates with you.

    For more examples of breathing exercises, you can check out this article from Healthline here.

    Social Media Breaks

    I don’t believe social media is universally good or bad; I think it’s all in how we use it and what kind of people/accounts we choose to connect with.

    In my experience, social media can be a beautiful platform for connecting with incredible souls, receiving positive messages, and creating a community based in love, kindness, compassion, and support. I think the use of social media has served my growth in many ways, especially in the past year.

    But there have also been many, many times when I’ve needed to step back and take a break from it all.

    I won’t go too in depth on the dangers of social media here, because I think it’s likely you’ve heard most of the arguments against it: it can be a highlight reel of people’s best moments, causing you to somehow think your life is “less than” because you don’t have everything another person has.

    It’s also easy to get trapped in the belief that likes and follows somehow have any kind of impact on your worthiness (which is 100% not true).

    And even if you only follow positive accounts, you might start to think that you’re supposed to be a positive, upbeat person 100% of the time, which also isn’t true.

    Taking regular social media breaks is necessary for protecting your energy in the long-term. Like I said, I believe there are a lot of really great aspects of social media, and in most cases, I don’t think it’s necessary to delete it entirely.

    But I do recommend scheduling social media breaks into your calendar. Also take non-scheduled breaks when you start to feel like social media is becoming an energy depleter instead of an energy restorer.

    And if there’s an account that makes you feel less than or causes you to feel negative or toxic energy within?

    Unfollow.

    Choose to consciously curate your social media feed to best support your mind, body, and spirit.

    Set Boundaries

    Boundaries.

    For most of us, this is likely the hardest practice on this list.

    Whether it’s in your personal or professional life, setting boundaries can be a difficult practice because it often requires having uncomfortable conversations. What helps me in this situation is to ask myself, what’s more uncomfortable? Having a conversation about boundaries, or not setting boundaries and continuing to live in a state of frustration, anger, and/or overwhelm?

    If you’re feeling hurt or resentful about something, then 10 times out of 10, the best thing you can do to heal your energy is to set boundaries.

    However hard it may feel, it is possible to make the practice of setting boundaries a little easier. How do you do this? By stepping forward in the energy of love.

    Often, we imagine conversations about boundaries to be hard, serious, and even negative. However, it is possible to approach this act with love and compassion for everyone involved. I recommend writing down your thoughts before having this conversation and scheduling time when you can have a calm conversation with the person or people you’re setting boundaries with.

    In other words, try to approach this with a sense of clarity and calm rather than letting yourself get consumed by the heat of the moment and potentially saying something you’ll regret later.

    Also remember, boundaries aren’t always about another person. Often, they’re about what you need. For instance, maybe you need one night a week to yourself without any interruptions. This may mean that you need to set a boundary that Wednesday nights are your nights. By dedicating this time to yourself, you’ll actually be able to show up better the rest of the week for the people in your life.

    So remember, boundaries aren’t a negative thing. They’re a way you can show love to yourself, which ultimately will positively affect all aspects or your life.


    Recap: How to Protect Your Energy

    If you’ve ever set out to start a consistent exercise routine, you know that the hardest part of the workout often isn’t physical; it’s your own mental barriers that can hold you back from reaching the success you’re capable of achieving.

    I’ve run one full marathon and four half marathons. I’ve gone on hikes that required me to climb thousands of feet of elevation. I’ve lifted weights I didn’t think I could lift, and I’ve stretched and moved my body in ways I didn’t think was possible.

    And while clearly, my body played an integral role in achieving these feats, I needed more than just my body to get me through the longest miles and toughest climbs; I needed that voice in my mind repeating over and over again, yes I can.

    On the flip side, I’ve also abandoned runs a mile or two in because my brain just couldn’t get into it, even when I felt rested and strong. And I can’t tell you how many times I’ve stopped in the middle of a set or skipped stretching, just because I didn’t feel like it.

    Know that I’m not judging myself for these moments, because they were all powerful learning experiences. I know that consistency always beats perfection, so it’s okay to be imperfect sometimes as long as I keep growing and showing up for myself as best as I can.

    Mindset is key in all that we do, including working out. If I tell myself that I can’t run one more mile, then that becomes my truth, whether or not my body was actually capable of going farther.

    I’ve found that reciting positive affirmations and empowering mantras to myself has been key in harnessing the power of my mindset when I work out. However, what I say to myself before my workout is different than what I say during my workout, and both are different from what I say after my workout.

    So I’ve divided the affirmations below into pre-workout, during workout, and post-workout affirmations. The pre-workout affirmations are designed to empower you to show up and choose to exercise from a place of self-love and self-respect. The post-workout affirmations are to help you affirm that you absolutely did enough, no matter what, and also to gently remind you to prioritize rest and recovery.

    You’ll notice that the affirmations that are designed for you to recite during your workout are a little shorter, and that’s because I’ve found that when I’m exercising, I tend be more motivated by short and punchy phrases than long sentences. They’re a lot easier to remember, too!

    I encourage you to use these positive workout affirmations from a place of total love for yourself, knowing you are strong, powerful, and more than enough.

    And be sure to stick around after the affirmations to discover seven powerful tips for overcoming “gymtimidation” and hitting the gym with confidence!

    A Quick Note

    Please know that the words above and the affirmations below are not meant to guilt you into working out, ESPECIALLY if your body is tired and needs rest and recovery time. Taking care of your body also means taking days off, getting enough sleep, and sometimes replacing your difficult workout with more gentle movement that feels good to you. Honor your body by listening to it and giving it the care it needs. If you’ve already carved out time to workout but know that you need to rest, I wholeheartedly recommend using the time to do a loving self-care practice that will realign the energy of your mind, body, and spirit.

    7 Ways To Boost Your Confidence At The Gym

    Going to the gym can be a vulnerable experience. You might look around and think everyone else knows exactly what they’re doing, while you’re not even sure where to start. Maybe you even worry that other gym-goers are judging you.

    This feeling of fear and anxiety about working out in front of others has been termed “gymtimidation.” If you struggle with this anxiety, you’re not alone. Many of the people you see confidently taking up space in the gym suffered from gymtimidation at one point, and maybe they still do, even if they don’t show it.

    There are several ways to overcome your fears and hit the gym with confidence, which we’ll explore below.

    1. Stick To A Routine

    Rather than going to the gym every once in a while, you’ll want to build trips to the gym into your daily routine. Stick to a schedule that works for you and visit the gym consistently in order to make exercise a healthy habit.

    1. Focus On Yourself

    Oftentimes, anxiety at the gym results from worries about whether other people are judging you. However, it’s important to remember that the people around you are usually 100% focused on their own workouts. Let the fear of judgment melt away and concentrate on your own goals.

    1. Get Advice

    If you don’t know how to perform a certain exercise or use a particular machine, ask a floor manager or a fitness trainer for advice. They’ll be able to give you quick guidance that will help you feel prepared and confident in your gym knowledge.

    1. Build Strength At Home 

    It can sometimes be easier to hit the gym when you’ve already learned the basics and built up strength. Try watching exercise tutorials at home and perfecting your form in the mirror. That way, you’ll feel more ready to hit the gym.

    1. Listen To Music

    According to Scientific American, “Music distracts people from pain and fatigue” and “elevates mood.” Creating an empowering workout playlist can help you feel confident and stay focused when exercising at the gym. You can either choose from the variety of pre-made workout playlists available online or customize your own.

    1. Bring A Friend

    Getting a workout buddy can make trips to the gym feel a lot less intimidating. This is because buddying up gives you a friendly face in an otherwise new and potentially intimidating environment. Your gym buddy can also help you stay accountable and crush your fitness goals.

    1. Find A Gym That Suits You

    Make sure the gym you pick is one you genuinely enjoy. Especially if you’re new to the gym scene, you’ll want to choose a place with a supportive culture and plenty of equipment for a range of experience levels.

    Joining a gym can be scary. However, these tips should help you build the confidence you need to meet your fitness goals.
