Positive Affirmations

We all have words we hold close to our hearts, words we use as fuel, words we live by. Occasionally, these words may not all be positive. We may go through our day inundated with negativity without even realizing it or giving it a second thought. We must be intentional with what we are telling ourselves. This is why positive affirmations are so important. Read on to learn more about how positive affirmations can benefit you.

The Power of Words

“Words have the power to change how we think and feel about ourselves,” says Helen Martin, author of “Words to live by” for In The Moment magazine. If your mind is calm and focused, your self-talk is probably positive. If you are feeling stressed and anxious, your self-talk may be negative.

It’s important to be intentional with the words we use when we talk about ourselves. We must realize how we speak because our words have power. Our words influence how we think, how we feel, and who we are. If your words aren’t positive, they aren’t furthering your recovery.

Positive Affirmations

Positive affirmations are positive sayings you remind yourself of when things aren’t going well, but when they are going well, too! These affirmations help to change your thought patterns when your thoughts are beginning to get negative. Think of it like a big, red stop sign. If you recognize that your thought patterns are negative, stop immediately.

Try to redirect your thoughts toward a healthier conversation by replacing the negative thought with your positive affirmation. For example, if you are feeling like you are unworthy of help, stop, and tell yourself that you deserve to be happy and healthy.

The Benefits

Positive affirmations not only help your self-talk, but they have other benefits as well. “It’s been shown that positive affirmations can increase the number of feel-good hormones in our brains,” says Martin. “Positive emotions are formed from those positive thoughts; love, kindness, serenity, joy.”

She says positive affirmations are “liberating” when you can separate yourself from and truly but a stop to negative thoughts. On the flip side, there are also physical benefits to having healthy self-talk. Because you are feeling better, you may want to exercise more, eat well, and sleep better. You may also build relationships with other positive people.
