Mady Dewey, a 2023 SI Swimsuit rookie, is a huge advocate for daily vocal affirmations and treating herself with kindness. To mark International Self-Care Day on July 24, the Herd cofounder shared her four favorite short and sweet messages that she repeats to herself daily in the hopes of helping others practice self-love.

“I am a firm believer that confidence comes from within and affirmations are such a helpful tool to make you feel your absolute best on the inside so you can shine on the outside,” she stated in her post.

Dewey’s four affirmations are as follows:

  1. I am enough, as I am, right now.
  2. I am strong. I am confident. I am powerful.
  3. I radiate positivity and confidence. 
  4. I acknowledge my accomplishments and celebrate my progress.

The Discord product marketing manager also swears by a social media detox to reset her mental state. She told SI Swimsuit that a daily morning walk—before logging on to work—has become an irreplaceable part of her routine.

She also knows the importance of treating herself with grace, and states that we should all recognize that having and maintaining a digital presence is addicting. She says it’s important to set time limits for yourself and recognize that it’s O.K. to want to be connected to other people and the world through the internet instead of trying to curb your habits completely.

“It is really easy to wanna document everything and post about it, but I think there’s a lot to be said for taking some days where you’re just in the sun with some friends enjoying life, [being] in the moment, not worrying about anything that’s on your phone. So even if it’s a few hours a day, that intentionality can make such a difference,” she explained. “You should feel good about the time that you’re spending anywhere, especially online.”
