We all have brushes with self-doubt. Hey, we’re human.
And this time of year can be especially challenging in the confidence department. ‘Tis the season for rich foods, fancy parties, and family members you haven’t seen in months. It’s easy to get bogged down in worry, judgment, comparison, and doubt.
One way to stay positive during the holidays is to incorporate mantras and affirmations into your routine.
Research from Carnegie Mellon University shows self-affirmations can improve problem-solving abilities and protect against stress.
So this holiday season, before anxiety and self-doubt creep in, give yourself a break. Take a moment to breathe deeply and repeat one or more of these phrases. Taking a moment to pause and center yourself might just be what you need to get the most out of the festivities.
1. “I don’t like myself, I’m crazy about myself.” — Mae West
2. It’s OK to cut loose.
This is your time to relax, unwind, and celebrate the season with friends and family. If that means dancing with your cousins in the kitchen to “Hotline Bling,” or eating the last piece of pie all by yourself, so be it. Dance. Laugh. Go nuts! It’s your holiday season, celebrate as you see fit. Today I will dance.
3. “I see the perfection in all my flaws and all my genius.”
4. Steer your own ship.
It’s easy to be swayed by everyone else. Coming home to discover what friends and family are up to and seeing how everyone’s changed can be tough. It’s hard not to get bogged down in comparisons. That’s why it’s so important to remember that you have a say when it comes to your mood or actions.
And whether you have a great time or a miserable one depends a lot on where you steer your ship.

5. “I will let go of what is no longer serving me and make room for what inspires me.”
6. “I belong here.”
You belong wherever you want to be. Even if your Aunt Kathy made an offhand comment that makes you feel small or out of place, you belong exactly where you are right now. You’re not in the way, you’re not a bother or a pest. You’re a part of the group, and the group is better because of it.
7. You are strong.
Get back, blue. Move over, orange. Whether you’re more suited to warm tones, cool shades, or neutrals, everyone looks good when they’re feeling strong. If the holidays are especially draining for you, physically or mentally, don’t hesitate to remind yourself just how capable you really are.
