This thread is a place for the community to share a daily positive affirmation.


What are positive affirmations?

Positive affirmations are short statements that aim to inspire people, help stop negative thoughts and build up self-esteem.


An example of a positive affirmation is:  “I am worth loving.  There is love all around me”


How do I use positive affirmations?


The Law of Attraction’s website tells us a good way of practicing positive affirmations is to:

  • Take three deep breaths, inhaling and exhaling to a count of 10.
  • Stand or sit in front of a mirror and look yourself in the eyes. Smile, if it feels natural.
  • Say your affirmation slowly and clearly.
  • Repeat the affirmation 3-5 times, really focusing on the meaning of each word.
  • Take another three deep breaths, allowing your body to absorb the positive feeling of the affirmation.
