You are what you think and so there is huge value in patting ourselves (and our friends and family) on the back.
Positive affirmations are positive phrases or statements that we can use to challenge our own negative or unhelpful thoughts.
Choose your positive affirmations carefully. Use ones that reflect your own personal values and real strengths or strengths that you consider to be important.
Doing this daily can really change your outlook - so that is brighter.
Here are some example positive affirmations:
Today is going to be a good day
I'm have wonderful friends who support and care for me
I am in charge of my thoughts and I don't judge myself
I accept and love myself
I am capable and good at what I do
I am a kind person
Nobody but me decides how I feel
I hope you find huge benefit from the positive affirmations you find for you x
