If you’re like me, you wake up most days and your mind’s already jumped into overdrive before your feet have even hit the floor. You might not even be fully conscious yet, and you’re going over your to-do list, wondering what to pack the kids for lunch, or ruminating on something that happened at work the day before. I know I’m guilty!

That’s why for the past 5 years, my morning self-care routine (which I call my alignment practice), is non-negotiable. In just a few minutes, I can tame my monkey mind, get grounded, and start my day with intention. This sacred “me” time sets me up to handle stress more eloquently, be more productive, and feel happier and more relaxed.

One of the key elements of my morning routine are my daily positive affirmations. Writing a couple of affirmations in my journal or saying them aloud in the mirror does wonders for my confidence, and helps me attract more of the things and experience I want into my life.

The Science Behind Daily Positive Affirmations

Scientific research has shown that using daily positive affirmations can help activate the areas of the brain that are responsible for making us feel positive emotions like happiness, ease, and confidence.

A 2016 study published in the journal, Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, concluded that affirmations can “decrease stress, increase well being, improve academic performance and make people more open to behavior change”.

When you experience more of the positive emotions that daily positive affirmations can create, you open up to possibility, feel more inspired to take meaningful action, and connect with your intuition – all things that empower you to make your life better! Who couldn’t use some of that?

So without further ado, here are 50 affirmations you can use daily to up-level your life and feel unstoppable!
