Daily affirmations are self-affirming statements that we say to ourselves in order to inspire change within. self-change. They are designed to positively influence our beliefs in regards to ourselves, our self worth, and our current reality. In a general sense, affirmations intend to alter the psychological immune system such that positivity becomes second nature.
Consistent positivity attracts more positivity into our lives; as well as being beneficial for coping with anxiety, depression, and other negativities. Motivation and inspiration are other benefits of daily affirmations -- if you tell yourself in the morning, before starting your day, that you are a kind and generous person, then you are much more likely to act in accordance with that affirmation throughout the day. If you tell yourself that you are positive and joyful, then your day will attract positivity and joy.
Loading yourself up with positivity, especially in the mornings before any external influence, charges your spirit with love, light, and positivity. Rather than starting the day with negative emotions of self-hatred and self-pity, which makes us feel bad about ourselves (leading to depression, anxiety, and complacency), try to affirm the good aspects of yourself and your life to evoke self-love and positivity.
Besides the factor of self-help and self-improvement, daily affirmations impact our lives by helping us tune in to our internal bodies, as well as our thoughts and emotions. Thus, making us more present and aware. Consistently creating conscious thoughts brings our awareness to a more introspective level. In return, we are more mindful in all aspects of life. You will begin to realize people, places, and things in your life that encourage positivity. In contrast, the people, places, and things in your life that drag you down, make you feel bad about yourself or your life, and evoke negative thoughts and emotions, will be brought to your attention and you will probably be inspired to lessen, or even do away with, these people, places, and things.
Affirmations don't just help the mind and spirit; they also encourage a healthy physical body. When you are acting with positivity, your body is able to regenerate cells more efficiently and healthily. Positivity also encourages productivity.
Daily affirmations come in all shapes and sizes; however, a good place to start is by incorporating "I am" statements for every aspect of yourself and your life that you are grateful for. They can be spoken internally, spoken aloud, or written down -- it's really just personal preference.
