🎙 I am quoted in Oprah Daily on the topic of positive affirmations.

💄 I find that "lipstick on the mirror"/toxic positivity self-talk to be unhelpful. These types of statements can indeed make someone feel worse because they don't feel genuine.

🙋🏽‍♀️ One thing that can be helpful is if you can ask yourself, “If my best friend was struggling, what would I tell them?” Then say to yourself what you would tell them and see if it feels right for you.

📚 Here's another example. Say a person values education and is studying for a particularly difficult exam. They can tell themselves, “Studying for this test feels overwhelming and I will also be one step further to my goals once it's over.” “I’ve done hard things before and I can do this too.”

🎶 Other ideas are to use your favorite quote, lyrics from a song, or lines from a loved book to use for your affirmations.

➡️ It’s all about making genuine affirmations. Don’t force anything.
