If during a life reset you are more interested in improving your mental and emotional health, you might want to use affirmations. These are a wonderful addition to your mental health routine, as they can help you with your mindset, both in good times and in difficult times.

Understanding Why Affirmations Work

Affirmations are positive statements or phrases that help you experience happy, uplifting, optimistic, inspiring, motivational, and positive emotions. They can be used in so many different ways, but during a reset, they help you to stay in a place of inspiration when it comes to making positive changes in your life.

Affirmations are going to help put you into a positive mindset. In the beginning, it often feels silly and like it isn’t helping, but you are using positive reinforcement. The more you say these affirmations to yourself out loud, the more you start to believe them. Telling yourself more positive things than negative things can turn everything around in ways you might not have imagined.

Ways to Use Affirmations

Not sure how to use your affirmations? Here are a few ideas:

Write a new affirmation down in your journal every day – Since every day is different, you probably need a different type of motivation each day as well. You can write an affirmation every morning while writing in your journal, that you will remember and repeat to yourself whenever you need to.

Put them on your bathroom mirror to repeat regularly – If you tend to forget to use your affirmations, put them somewhere you pass by regularly. This might be your bathroom mirror or on your refrigerator. Every time you see them, read them to yourself or out loud. It is a great reminder to use them.

Read them out loud whenever you need a boost of confidence – Bring affirmations with you that you have noticed help you the most, and say them to yourself out loud when you need that boost.

Choosing the Right Affirmations for You

Before you can get started, you need to choose the right kinds of affirmations. Remember they should be short enough to write down or remember and repeat back to yourself, be simple, and be positive. Here are some examples:

  • I am worthy of love and affection.
  • I am courageous and confident.
  • I can do anything I put my mind to.
  • I am responsible with money.
  • I hold the power to my own happiness.

You can find additional ones online or create your own!

    Great overview!
    In our intentional art community, we spend some time looking at the old stories which might derail us, and then wrote an antidote, which becomes the affirmation! It can be so much more effective, when we identify the critical phrases and patterns first!
    EFT tapping is another way to identify old stories, and reprogram.

    Those are great affirmation suggestions!! I found myself repeating a couple of them that I need to remember today. I completely agree with you about the power of saying things out loud, especially if we say them with conviction.
