Self-Love: 28 Daily Positive Affirmations for February

When your birthday falls in February and you live in the Northern Hemisphere, you can quickly develop something of a love-hate relationship with this short month. I love that it's my birthday month, and while I have mixed feelings about Valentine's Day I do love me some hearts, and ooh, there's also Pancake Day but let's be honest too. WE ARE ALL SO OVER WINTER by the time February rolls around it can also be a hard month to get through no matter how short.

Daily Positive Affirmations for February

So I hope these daily affirmations for some positive self-love in February will help you get through this short but possibly not very sweet month. This year like no other, we are all feeling like the shine of the new year has very much worn off, and so we will need as much positivity as we can muster, and daily positive affirmations are one such way of doing this. You can find January's affirmations for beginning the new year here.

I will be very honest and say that most of these are relevant to me personally and to what I have been experiencing in recent weeks. If you're interested, this includes the re-gaining of some balance thanks to schools and daycares opening up again here in the Netherlands, but also I have been struggling with severe back pain which began with me being pretty much immobile for 48 hours after throwing my back out. It happened suddenly, but the after-effects have stuck around a long time so I have had to really think differently to navigate how this has made me feel.

But enough about me. Because all of the positive affirmations I write for one and all are really about you. And with that in mind, it follows that not all of these affirmations are going to speak to you. This is a good thing! Ideally, you only want to feel the power of a select few, and this distinction will help you focus on the ones that can help guide you with greater ease. As always, I recommend saying these affirmations out loud and repeating them both at the beginning of the day but also at various other points in the day when you need to re-focus or take a moment to think or feel clearer. 

If saying affirmations out loud still feels weird to you - which is very normal! - then do at least say them very slowly and deliberately in your mind with as much repetition as you can.
