I listen to my affirmations in music form.
While Caregiving I could have been much nicer to myself. My self-talk included me berating myself for information I didn't know and any tasks I didn't complete to the peak of my ability. This only helped me to spiral deeper into depression.
To change this, I began writing mantras on my bathroom window in a dry-erase marker. I felt silly saying mantras out loud all day but I did begin listening to music with positive affirmations. I did this while driving, cooking, and cleaning. I made sure a constant flow of positivity entered my ears. Here is one of my favorite artists. I hope you find peace and solace in their craft as I have.
