60 Powerful Affirmations for Moms

Motherhood is a beautiful and magical thing. But let’s be honest, motherhood is also challenging regardless of whether you’re a first-time mom, experienced mom, working mom, or a stay-at-home mom. That’s why powerful affirmations can be such a helpful tool for moms to have a pick-me-up.

We take on so much and often carry a heavyweight on our shoulders that don’t always need to be there.

Sociologists have shown that mothers are trying to feel like they can have it all – successful business, careers, and kids – in a way that puts them at a disadvantage. Not only that, but psychologists claim women who have children report much higher stress levels and also make 80% of the family house care.

How to Practice Positive Affirmations?

Choose phrases that are meaningful to you, look at yourself in front of the mirror and say them daily, write them down, and take actions based on your affirmations. 

When you first start saying positive affirmations, it can feel uncomfortable, disingenuous or downright silly – I get it. However, if you can work through the odd feeling in the beginning, these affirmations will get easier and can reshape how you regard yourself. 

Consistent and frequent practice will help you break out of these old thought patterns. The more you practice affirmations, the less silly you will feel and the easier it will be to think positive thoughts about yourself. 

When mom life gets a little overwhelming, use these affirmations to get out of that stressed-out mindset and get into inspirational thoughts to increase love, confidence, happiness, self-esteem, resilience, and optimism.
