I have a tendency to focus on the negative. My brain just goes “there” as soon as I allow it too. Positive Mom Affirmations has really helped me keep those negative thoughts’ at bay. It has been so powerful of a tool for me that I want to share this strategy with other moms too.

People tell you motherhood can be hard, but the nuances of that reality are one’s I would not have understood until becoming a parent. Somehow my faults are now more evident as I seek to model healthy habits to my son. We put so much pressure on ourselves to be perfect. But it’s an endless quest that will lead you frustrated and unhappy.

Do Affirmations Really Work?

Our brain is in a constant conversation with its self. It is often on autopilot, and the thoughts you have are heavily influenced by what you tell yourself.

Here’s the thing.

Your thoughts’ WILL affect how your FEEL.

If you want to feel good, you need to incorporate positive conversations in your mental dialogue. This is why how you speak out loud about yourself really matters. Even if you say something derogatory about yourself as a joke, your brain will internalize it and those harmful thoughts’ will affect how you feel.

An interesting fact about the brain is that sometimes it can’t tell the difference between reality and imagination. Thinking about positive experiences (even future ones) activate the same areas in the brain as if you are currently experiencing it.

Example Of Positive vs Negative Thoughts

You are going to a social event where you don’t know anyone and you are feeling anxious.

The anxiety comes from following thought patterns: “No one will like me”, I will have no one to talk to”, “everyone will see I am nervous”, “people there will be smarter than I am” etc.

Lets shift the conversation. Same scenario- different thoughts’: “Everyone will really like me”, “there will many people I will enjoy talking to”, “everyone will see what an awesome person I am”, “people there will have interesting things to talk about”.

The above are examples of affirmations you can tell yourself as you get ready for the event. It is a conscious decision to flip thoughts’ of anxiety and rephrase them to feel better.

It’s Hard To Change The Way We Think

I have been writing a lot recently about mental load and invisible labor, often carried by women and moms. This has made me look closely at our family dynamics as well and I realize that the hardest things to do when shifting to positive habits, is changing the way we think. Negative thoughts’ will block you towards reaching your goals, or even having a good day.

Positive mom affirmations are really powerful and its a lost opportunity if you are not using them daily. However, if you think your negative feelings are due to depression, it is important to seek medical help as it is a health issue which won’t be resolved with affirmations.

I hope this post has helped you better understand how your brain works and why this simple tool can implement such positive change in your life.
