Positive affirmations have been around for a while, since the 1920s really. But I am only just really taking the practice seriously. I wrote most of these 30 positive affirmations for myself and they have helped me in so many ways.
Affirmations are a great way to manifest what you want in life. But they are more than that. They help you change the way you think. You are what you think and self-affirmations help you to meditate on thoughts that will build up your life.
What to look out for when writing affirmations
These 30 positive affirmations are just to guide you. It is much better to craft affirmations that mean something to you. Research has also shown that affirmations that are completely opposite to what you believe often reinforce the negative self-perception. For instance for people with severe self-loathing, saying ‘I love myself’ only makes them feel worse because it is untrue. Instead, an affirmation that says, ‘I am learning to like myself’ might be closer to effecting change.
