Positive Affirmations

If you’ve ever had a negative thought that seemed to spiral out of control, you know the power of the mind. The way we think can impact our emotions, behaviours, and even physical health. But what if we could harness that power for good? Enter positive affirmations: short statements that promote positive thinking and can help rewire the brain.

What Are Positive Affirmations?

Positive affirmations are short, simple statements that encourage positive thinking and behaviour. They’re designed to replace negative thoughts and beliefs with positive ones, which can help improve mood, reduce stress, and increase confidence.

Examples of positive affirmations include:

  • I am worthy of love and respect.
  • I am capable of achieving my goals.
  • I choose happiness and joy.
  • I am grateful for all that I have.
  • I am strong and resilient.

The key is to find affirmations that resonate with you and repeat them regularly.

How Do Positive Affirmations Work?

At their core, positive affirmations work by rewiring the brain. When we repeat a positive affirmation, we’re essentially training our brains to think in a more positive, optimistic way. Over time, this can lead to a shift in mindset and even changes in behaviour.

Research has shown that positive affirmations can have a range of benefits, including:

  • Reducing stress and anxiety
  • Improving self-esteem and confidence
  • Increasing motivation and focus
  • Enhancing resilience and coping skills
  • Improving physical health, such as reducing blood pressure and improving sleep quality

Tips for Using Positive Affirmations

While positive affirmations can be a powerful tool, it’s important to use them correctly. Here are some tips for getting the most out of your affirmations:

1. Keep them short and simple.

Affirmations should be short and easy to remember. You want to be able to repeat them to yourself throughout the day, so they need to be easy to recall.

2. Use the present tense.

When crafting your affirmations, use the present tense. This helps your brain to believe that the affirmation is already true, which can make it more effective.

3. Use positive language.

Make sure your affirmations are phrased positively. Instead of saying “I am not anxious,” say “I am calm and relaxed.”

4. Repeat them often.

To see the benefits of positive affirmations, you need to repeat them regularly. Try repeating them to yourself several times a day, or write them down and post them somewhere you’ll see them often.

5. Believe in them.

Finally, it’s important to believe in your affirmations. If you don’t truly believe what you’re saying, it’s unlikely that they’ll have much of an impact.

Examples of Positive Affirmations

If you’re not sure where to start with positive affirmations, here are some examples to get you started:

  • I am strong and capable.
  • I am deserving of love and happiness.
  • I trust in my ability to succeed.
  • I choose to let go of negative thoughts and beliefs.
  • I am filled with gratitude for all that I have.

Remember, the key is to find affirmations that resonate with you and repeat them regularly.


Positive affirmations can be a powerful tool for rewiring the brain and promoting positive thinking and behaviour. By replacing negative thoughts and beliefs with positive ones, we can improve our mood, reduce stress, and increase confidence. To get the most out of positive affirmations, remember to keep them short and simple, use the present tense, and repeat them often. With practice, you can harness the power of positive affirmations so that they can positively impact your life and success.
