The sun has set and it’s time to wind down without the worry of our wellness routine being tossed to the side. We can all attest to the importance of a day of rest, but for some reason, it seems harder and harder to come by.
If we aren’t careful, our to-do lists can quickly become a source of anxiety instead of a roadmap to success. I use these Sunday affirmations to promote rest while activating a growth mindset for the week ahead.
These affirmations are not about facing the Sunday scaries but reminding you to take your time as you head into your Sunday night routine.
Incorporate these as your Sunday morning affirmations to promote rest, ease, and a growth mindset, so you can begin the week without your nervous system on high alert.

Positive statements to say to yourself
Every Sunday should involve some form of rest, whether that means taking a break from work, catching up on sleep, or just taking it easy. By focusing on being in a state of flow and ease, you can set yourself up for a productive and successful week.
Offering you 103 affirmations, did you find at least one that related to your current situation? If not, take some time to create your own. Remember, the more personalized they are, the more likely you are to believe them.
And speaking of believing, that’s an important part of making affirmations work. So, as you go about your day, keep your affirmations in mind and really try to believe them. Doing so will help them become more of a reality in your life.
One final note on affirmations: don’t just say them to yourself once and then forget about them. In order for them to be effective, you need to say them regularly. So, make a point of saying your affirmations every day, multiple times a day if possible.
