Affirmations are short fragments of thought, easy to remember and enormously helpful in seeing yourself in a new light. We can superimpose negative emotions with them. Some use them as a kind of mantra in meditation, for example in autogenic training.
Let them work on you, see what they do to your mood and reflect on them your own view – for often they make something vibrate within you. And the healing process begins.
On this page I have put together a first set of affirmations on the subject of Body-Confidence. Because Body-Con – a positive relationship to one’s own body – is becoming more and more difficult in a time which is characterized by influencers with ideal bodies. By people who can’t eat much except salad and spend hours in the gym.
Not to mention the fact that our body has grown with a certain structure. And no gym in the world can help it if we don’t like our nose or our feet, if our breasts are not symmetrical or our bone structure is too wide.
But we can learn to be at peace with ourselves. We can stop constantly comparing ourselves or even being ashamed of ourselves.
So take a look at the affirmations below, pin them on your pinboard or your timeline, or write them on your bathroom mirror with lipstick. Memorize them or meditate on them – depending on what works best for you.
