Are you tired of the negative body posts that are rampant on social media? Do you struggle to love your body? Do you wish you felt more confident in who you are?
You're not alone. Many of us have been conditioned by society to think that our bodies are wrong. We have been told that we're supposed to look a certain way. We feel like the bodies we were born into don't measure up and this can be hard to cope with.
That's why we've created personalized positive affirmations to love your body, all based on your Zodiac sign.
What Are Affirmations?
An affirmation is a powerful statement that we repeat to ourselves in order for it to become ingrained into our minds. They work by helping us to focus on a positive perspective, making it easier for our subconscious mind to believe what we're telling ourselves.
Why Affirmations Based on Zodiac Signs?
Positive affirmations that feel personal to you specifically are more likely to work than a generic one. It can be difficult at first to come up with affirmations that are meaningful to you. One way we can help is by providing some options for each sign, based on your personality.
