Monday Mojo for Caregivers – Positive Affirmations for Family Caregivers
Hello and welcome to Monday Mojo for Caregivers. The life of a caregiver is one of constant ups and downs, with no two days alike. It’s a life filled with struggles, as well as triumphs.
To invigorate focus, keep our health up, and your stress down — it’s important to reflect and show gratitude for yourself. Positive affirmations are a great tool for practicing self-care as a caregiver and for cultivating positive self-talk. These short ‘n sweet statements will help you feel good about your role as a caregiver and increase your sense of accomplishment.
Here are a few positive affirmations for family caregivers!
To get started, find a quiet place to be alone with your thoughts. Now repeat after me:
• I love myself therefore when I make a mistake I forgive myself.
• I love myself therefore today I choose to release all fears and doubts.
• I love myself therefore I will accept that I will have bad days from time to time.
• I am thankful to still have my loved ones in my life.
• I am safe and I care for all my needs.
• I replace my fears with love.
• I am appreciated.
• I am in control.
• I am not alone.
• I am enough.
When we show ourselves gratitude, positive feelings and behaviors follow that allow us to cherish the special experience of care giving even more.
When creating your own affirmations, focus on areas of your caregiving experience that you would like to improve or feel better about. Turning your goals into short, positive statements will help you get of the cycle of “wishing it was true” into making situations a reality. Repeat the statements to yourself on a regular basis, several times a day, perhaps at a set time such as before breakfast or before bed.
