Call it your morning affirmation or part of self-care… and here are the best things to tell yourself in the mirror every day, before leaving your home or starting your work.
We constantly look for inspiration and respect from others who barely know us.
But, the fact is…
The only person who can make us feel better about ourselves is… our own.
No one can make us feel motivated like… we can.
No one can make us feel respected like… we do.
So if you want to be your own genuine supporter, then make sure you first believe the one you see in the mirror every day.
Positive transformation or daily affirmation can be followed anyway, and talking to yourself in the mirror is one of them.
So next time you look into the mirror, make sure it’s not only about perfecting your makeup or hairstyle but tell yourself something that helps you feel happy and confident from within.
What is the ‘Mirror affirmation technique’?
Well, it’s more like a practice of self-love in which you look into your eye through a mirror, and then tell something about yourself that boosts your confidence while valuing the uniqueness that separates you from all the other people out there.
In simple terms, it’s more about appreciating your inner self, before the outer appearance.
The way you look at yourself in the mirror and pass on that feeling reflects back to you.
So make sure you say something inspiring at the end. And that’s the purpose of this mirror work or technique.
Ask yourself… What did you see last time you saw it in the mirror?
- Do you see a confident guy who is ready for anything that life throws at you?
- Or the one who is depressed, in trying to prove something to this world?
Well, so far you have been looking at the mirror to prepare physically, but now it’s time to be more beautiful and confident about yourself from the inside, too.
And, saying something to yourself through a mirror is what you need to follow right now.
