20+ positive affirmations to start your day right

Sometimes we just need a little hand-holding to get through the day with our chins up, and with a little much-needed confidence boost, and sometimes positive affirmations are just the things you need to do it. Personally, I love them. On days when my head is filled with self-talk, or I can’t get past the cycle of negativity, an affirmation (or two) is what I need to act as a circuit-breaker.

And that’s why I created these positive affirmations. You can pop them as your phone or laptop wallpaper, or even print them and put them on your mirror to pep you up for the day.

I am big believer that life is as good as we allow it to be. And sure, we get derailed a little, but still we get a little bit of time at the steering wheel to navigate to where we want to go. Part of the ‘steering’ is done with a positive attitude. Most mornings I genuinely wake up excited for what the day will bring. Because anything is possible.

And I can kinda set the tone with positive affirmations. I love me an affirmation.

If you’re new to affirmations, they’re positive statements that help steer you into the positive zone and away from negativity and self-sabotaging statements. Sometimes, this happens a lot while driving, I’ll find myself berating myself with dialogue like, “You’re not good enough. You can’t do it.”

And I have to give myself an upper cut and press stop, and then think about an affirmation to change things up. “I am enough!” works really well to stop that negativity. But it’s always good to have a little pile of affirmations in my brain and/or on my desk, so that I repeat them and refer to them when I need.

I’ve created positive affirmations for you to use. Make them your screensaver on your phone. Print them out and put them on your mirror. Repeat them so often that suddenly you start reciting them without even realising.
