Mornings are arguably the most important part of any day! Waking up late and starting the day frazzled will usually keep your spirits low throughout the rest of the day. Conversely, starting the day in a good mood and feeling motivated ensures that you'll have a happy and productive day ahead!

And perhaps one of the best ways to have a great morning is by establishing a morning routine! We've talked about the different morning rituals that you can add to your morning routine for fantastic mornings, but there's just one more thing you should do: repeating positive morning affirmations!

Positive morning affirmations are basically positive and powerful statements that you repeat to yourself, or write down in a journal in the mornings! It may just seem like shallow words, but consistently repeating positive affirmations to yourself can truly make a difference in the way you look at yourself and the world!

Positive morning affirmations can help motivate you to push past limiting beliefs and gives you strength in difficult times. It's also a great way to practice gratitude and help you embrace your strengths!

As mentioned earlier, you can either repeat these affirmations to yourself (preferably while looking at yourself in the mirror), or write them down! Doing so will help you speak or write the confidence and self-love into existence.

So, here are 20 positive morning affirmations that you should try incorporating into your daily morning routine. Start the day right!
