Positive Affirmations for You to Use the Week of August 29th – September 4th.

Hi friends!

I hope that this past week went well for you. I was extremely lucky to begin the week celebrating mine and my sister’s birthdays with my sister (who I got to see for the first time in over a year and a half!) and my mom, but was unlucky to end the week with an ear infection. Keep your fingers crossed for me that I start feeling better soon, because this stuff is not fun.

I’m so excited to share this week’s affirmations with you all! I actually decided that this week, as soon as I post these affirmations, I’ll be taking a little break from Instagram. I try to take a break at least once a month, and this timing just feels right t me. Things are kinda rough, mental health wise, but are slowly going back to where I want them to be, and I think that taking a step back from social media will be very beneficial.

So, even though I won’t be on Instagram, I will be practicing my affirmations every day, and I hope you will too! Every Sunday (well, most Sundays, if we’re being completely honest.), I post the affirmations I will be using in the upcoming week. I share them in the order I’ll be using them (1 is Sunday, 2 is Monday, 3 is Tuesday, etc.), but I encourage you to use them in whatever way works best for you!

I’ll see you all next week with more affirmations, and hopefully this week with some book reviews – I’ve read so much this month and am so behind in book reviews, so hopefully during my social media break, I’ll be able to catch up a bit on content.

Every Sunday, I share seven affirmations that I will be using that upcoming week. I always share them in the order that I will be using them (1 is Sunday, 2 is Monday, 3 is Tuesday, etc.), but I hope that you will use them in whatever way works best for or resonates with you!

Can you believe we only have just over a week left in August?? 2020 went by so slow for me, and now 2021 is just zipping by. I would just like time to move at regular, steady pace, please!

Positive Affirmations for the Week of March 7th-13th

One of the most important part of my daily routine is reciting positive affirmations. I usually do it while doing my skincare, and then write it down a few times while journaling in the morning and at night. As someone who is more likely to think negatively about myself and situations, positive affirmations help me counter these thoughts. So, I decided to start sharing them with you!

Every Saturday, I’ll share the affirmations for the week on here and on my Instagram. I’m also going to try to share the affirmation of the day on my Instagram stories, as well. I am genuinely thrilled to share this practice with you, and hope you’ll join in!

  1. I am more than enough.
  2. I am brilliant, beautiful, and bold.
  3. I’ve made it through tough times before, i can make it through this one too. i am a survivor.
  4. Times are tough, but i will get through them.
  5. I am becoming the best version of myself.
  6. I can get through it.
  7. I will choose myself, even when rejection is hard.

Top 7 Meditation Podcasts

For years, I’ve been trying to get into a meditation practice. However, it’s always hard for me to actually quiet my mind and focus on the present moment. As someone with a fun mixture of depression, ADHD, and anxiety, quieting my mind seems impossible most days.

But I know that meditation and and mindfulness are really beneficial for mental and physical health, so I keep trying. Since it’s so difficult to quiet my mind, I find that guided meditations are the way to go for me, at least right now. It makes it seem much less intimidating, and much more doable. Did you know there are meditation podcasts? Some are guided, and some just have an introduction with set time for you to meditate, but I find them very helpful in quieting my mind and beginning a meditation practice.

Here are some of my favorite meditation podcasts to guide you on your own meditation journey!

1. Purely Being Guided Meditations (Spotify, Apple Podcasts)

As you can probably tell by the title, these are guided meditations, and there are new ones released every Sunday, so you don’t have to worry about running out!

2. Tara Brach (Spotify, Apple Podcasts)

I absolutely adore Tara Brach. Her meditations and podcasts focus a lot on self-compassion, which I could always use more of. I also looove her voice. Is that weird? That’s probably weird.

3. The Daily Shine (Spotify, Apple Podcasts)

Put out by the Shine App, these are daily, bite size meditations, that almost anyone could master!

4. Radio Headspace (Spotify, Apple Podcasts)

Another daily podcast that puts out daily meditations, this one is put out by the meditation app Headspace. I actually recently finished reading the book by the founder of Headspace, so I especially like these, as they use the concepts I’m familiar with.

5. Yoga Girl Daily (Spotify, Apple Podcasts)

Okay, so this one isn’t a specific meditation podcast, but I decided to include it, because she puts out a guided meditation on the podcast once a week. I also love this podcast, and find it so helpful for my own life, so I’ll include it every chance I get!

6. Meditative Story (Spotify, Apple Podcasts)

This was a newer discovery with an interesting concept. The narrator tells you a story, and you meditate on it while listening mindfully. I really appreciate the creativity behind this one, and that it’s not the same kinds of meditations that you’ll find everywhere else.

7. Om & Go Guided Meditation Podcast (Spotify, Apple Podcasts)

This podcast is specifically designed with busy people in mind, so I definitely appreciate that. I don’t listen to this one as often, but I enjoy the variety in their guided meditations.
