They are always positive statements meant to put you in the proper perspective. It helps you throughout the day when you start your day with more positivity and kindness.

How to Choose Your Affirmations
What should your affirmations be? You can definitely choose from the ones other people enjoy using, but you might also want to create your own for specific situations in your life.
To write your affirmations, here are a few tips:
- Keep them positive. Affirmations should always be positive from beginning to end. If you have a negative thought or attitude, write an affirmation that switches it to something positive. For example, if you are dealing with stress about a significant change in your life, try “I am capable of adapting to any situation.”
- Write in the present tense. You also want to write affirmations in the present tense, as if what you want has already happened. If you want to achieve a goal, you write it like “I am working hard towards my goals” or something relevant to you.
- Be grateful for your affirmations. Instead of talking about what you want, write your affirmations as if you are thankful for something you have (or want) in your life. For example, “I am grateful to work on my goals today.”
Remember to keep your affirmations brief so that they are easy to remember and repeat as often as needed.
