What Are Affirmations?

Posted by May Abu Jaber on

If you spend any amount of time online looking up self care tips and ways to improve your mental health, physical health, or your life in general, you've probably heard about affirmations and affirmation cards.

At its core, the concept of affirmations are essentially a way to wire your brain to give yourself positive self-talk. Affirmation cards can make a huge difference in not only how you see the world, but how you see yourself! 

What are affirmations?

To put it simply, affirmations are short sentences that convey a positive message.  They can be as simple as “I will do something good today” or “I am strong”. Repeating affirmations can be hugely beneficial in helping you change your habits and the way you see the world around you.

How do I pick my affirmations cards?

Your affirmation cards should be true to you, so there's no way for somebody to tell you exactly which affirmations will work for you the best. That said, you can start out by looking up a list of affirmations, or by treating yourself to our beautifully designed affirmation cards. These beautiful cards can be left around your house as well so that you are reminded of them throughout the day. Keeping your affirmations in the front of you, can help you focus on the positive.

How to say affirmations?

There isn’t necessarily a strict set of rules about how to say affirmations. Because everybody's life is so different, what works for one person may not work for another. That said, it's a good idea to repeat your affirmations twice a day: once in the morning and once in the evening. You can use this time to mediate and set your intentions for the day as well. 

Why should I say affirmations?

Affirmations can be very motivating and keep you on track. Even without the phrase repetition, taking the few minutes in your day to focus on yourself and your mind and your intentions can show a significant difference. It can help you avoid distractions and negativity as well.
