Affirmations for Loving Your Body

Aug 27, 2021

Affirmations for Loving Your Body

Affirmations for Loving Your Body Can be an Integral Part of Being Healthy

Do you have favorite affirmations for loving your body?

Have you ever recommend one to a patient? Has a doctor ever recommend one to you?

In Feb 2020, I had C0VID-19 or very severe flu. The understanding around C0VID-19 long haul syndrome is becoming more apparent.

One feature is dysautonomia. I have this. It shows up as the feeling that I am about to pass out when standing.

As an aside, I have seen physicians in Facebook groups make fun of this. If you are a patient who has experienced this I am sorry.

What else happens in COVID long haul syndrome?

Exercise has been challenging. Only in the last few months have I been able to walk in the morning without feeling exhausted.

So I developed an โ€œinterestingโ€ relationship of body.
I felt it was holding me back from the work I wanted to do.

I have always known about affirmations.
Further, I have had to come to the realization:


“I love everything about my body.”

-you

There is science-backed research on affirmations

A research team at Cornell Medical Center studied the benefit of positive affect/self-affirmation in 756 patients randomized into 3 trials.

โ€œThe positive affect/self-affirmation group was taught how to use positive affect and self-affirmation. At enrollment, patients in the PA intervention group were asked to identify small things that make them feel good and were told the following:

โ€œThinking about these small things that make you feel good may help you to overcome challenges and improve your healthโ€.

They were asked to think about these things when they first wake up in the morning and throughout their day.

Interestingly, some patients induced their own positive affect every day by taking a moment to enjoy beautiful things, such as a sunrise or sunset.โ€ (Charlson, 2014)

In angioplasty patients and hypertensive patients, the positive affect intervention resulted in significantly improved outcomes vs. the control. For asthmatic patients, however, there was no difference in outcomes between the randomization groups. Further, it was found that the intervention increased self-efficacy and promoted success in behavior change by buffering stress.

People *know* what they need to do; however, get off track by stress. Research has shown that affirmationsย help us make positive choices for ourselves.
