101 'I Am' Affirmations to Remind You of How Amazing You Are

"I Am" affirmations can make a major difference in your mood, your outlook, and your self-esteem.

"Our thoughts are powerful things. They shape our moods, behaviors and actions. When we are stressed, anxious or feeling down, we often think of dark thoughts and fears, or dwell on our perceived faults or frailties. At times like this, we need to learn how to replace a negative thought with a more positive, adaptive one," Dr. Monica Vermani, C. Psych, clinical psychologist and author of A Deeper Wellness: Conquering Stress, Mood, Anxiety and Traumastells Parade. "Affirmations are positive statements that help quiet negative self-talk and stop ruminating negative forecasting of worst-case scenarios in their tracks."

Dr. Vermani says that contemplative mantras that you repeat to yourself can ground and center you, citing examples like "I am worthy," "I am lovable," "I am strong, healthy and capable" and '"I am safe, healthy and protected."

"Repeating positive statements or affirmations can lead you back to a place of balance, where you can see the good among the challenges of the moment," she says. "You can create your own affirmations as powerful means of accentuating the good things in your life, grounding your thoughts in your strengths and resources, and helping you make your faith in your abilities bigger than your fear of the unknown."

Using positive "I Am" mantras can help change your perception of yourself and help to drown out the often negative thoughts you may have about yourself, the world and your life. They can be as simple as reminding yourself that you're beautiful inside and out or can be reminders to forgive yourself for your faults, flaws and mistakes. This list of "I Am affirmations" is a great starting point to help you feel empowered enough to love yourself and chase the life that we all know you truly deserve.
