21 Positive Affirmations To Improve Mental Health

Affirmations are phrases that you repeat to yourself over and over. Though incredibly simple in nature, they are powerful tools for improving emotional wellness.

Our thoughts greatly influence our lives. The messages you send to yourself internally dictate how you think of yourself, your career, your social situation, and all other aspects of your life. By reciting positive affirmations on a daily basis, you can train yourself to think positively about each of these different aspects.

In my work as an online psychotherapist, I have witnessed first-hand the power of reciting positive affirmations. If you would like to try working with affirmations but don’t know where to start, use this list of my favorites as a resource.

The Power Of Positive Affirmations
I encourage you to choose three to five of these affirmations and begin incorporating them into your daily life. Though you may not be able to embrace the truth of your chosen affirmations just yet, stick with it. Recite them out loud to yourself several times each day. You can also keep a sunshine diary and write your affirmations down every day. Eventually, you will train your mind to embrace the truth and to clue into your own personal power.
