The Benefits of Affirmations And Positivity

What Are Affirmations? 

If you’re not familiar with affirmations, an affirmation is simply anything you say or think towards yourself. A lot of times what we say or think about ourselves can actually be quite negative, and can eventually create a poor quality of life. This is especially true when it comes to comparison. Often times when we see someone else that is successful, good-looking, or simply just achieving in “life”, it can be very difficult not to compare our lives to theirs. With comparison naturally comes self-doubt, and when there is self-doubt there’s usually some negative thinking involved as well.

An amazing way to break the cycle of negative thinking and self-doubt is with affirmations. Affirmations are such an incredible tool for helping shift your mindset and perspective.

 

 

“It’s not what you say out of your mouth that determines your life, it’s what you whisper to yourself that has the most power.”

– Robert Kiyosaki

How To Use Positive Affirmations Daily

Practicing regular affirmations can allow us to become more aware of our thoughts as well as the way we think about ourselves. When we become more aware of ourselves and our thoughts, we are able to be more mindful of surrounding ourselves with positivity.

I like writing down positive words or phrases on a piece of paper and placing them somewhere I can visually see them often. Some of my favorite spots to place them are on a bedside table, bathroom mirror, the back of the door, or even a fridge. The more frequently your brain sees positive words or affirmations, the more likely your mind/or body will begin to believe them. So read these (or other) affirmations aloud to yourself daily! 😉

 

 

Affirmation Examples

  • “I am surrounded by love, all is well.”
  • “As I forgive myself it becomes easier to forgive others.”
  • “I choose to be happy.”
  • “Abundance flows freely through me.”
  • “I don’t sweat the small stuff.”
  • “I am enough.”
  • “I let go of all that no longer serves me.”
  • “I am confident and worthy.”
  • “I set goals and take action in achieving them.”
  • “I focus on filling my body with nutrients.”
  • “Loving others is easy when I love and accept myself.”

 

 

affirmations

 

When we are conscious of our thoughts and attitudes towards ourselves, we can then easily make an effort to eliminate any negative thoughts. You have the power to change how you think. Change may not happen overnight, but if you make a consistent choice to think positively, over time you’ll definitely make positive changes in your life because of that.

    What a beautifully written post. Being someone who always struggled with self image and doubts, I recently came across act of daily affirmations and positive thinking! But I always wondered if it really made a change, I tried it for a few days and then left as my self doubt took over me! I think I need to give it another try this time! 🙂
    Hope you’re having an amazing start to this week!

    Thank you so much for your sweet words, Ankita! Having struggled with self-image and doubts as well, I’ve found that being consistent with positive affirmations is what really does the trick! Personally, I love reading a couple affirmations right before going to sleep at night, or right when I wake up in the morning 😉

    I’ve just started adding affirmations to my daily routine. I like to write them down and place them on my dresser mirror, where I get ready every morning. It’s amazing how you can train your mind to think positively! I like the examples you gave for some affirmations, I’ll have to add them to my list. What a wonderful post!

    This is really great and very helpful for those who don’t think very positive about themselves. It’s so important to have daily affirmations, even if it’s something to be grateful and thankful for.
