Daily Affirmations for Mental Health

The power of positive thoughts.

The dialogue we allow in our minds has a profound impact on our mindset and success. Like a growing plant, our mental growth is dependent on the energy and intention we put into ourselves. Proper sunlight, water, and nutrients are much alike positive thoughts that we foster. According to Psychology Today, “People who are more optimistic have better pain management, improved immune and cardiovascular function, and greater physical functioning. Optimism helps buffer the negative effects of physical illness and is associated with better health outcomes in general” (2022). This is why it is crucial to pour into our minds positive and empowering thoughts. Having a daily affirmation helps us focus our thoughts on our goals. You can choose which affirmations to feed your brain, encouraging positivity and optimism. Here are some examples of daily affirmations to consider and start out with:

  • I dream. I believe. I receive.
  • I believe in the person I am becoming.
  • I am limitless and anything is possible.
  • I am brave and strong.
  • I forgive myself for my past mistakes.
  • I can overcome any challenge I face.
  • I will get through this.
  • I am enough.
  • Everyday is a fresh start.
  • I am open and ready to learn.
  • The best is yet to come.
  • I have gotten through 100% of my hard days.
  • I am grateful for my blessings.
  • I am healing.
  • I am attracting positive energy today.
  • I am unapologetically myself.
  • I am enough.
  • I breathe in confidence and exhale fear.
  • My strength is greater than any struggle.

The beauty about daily affirmations is that you can stick to your favorite ones or try new affirmations each day. You can use the ones above or create your own that are personal to your own experience and needs. Daily affirmations reaffirm growth and optimism. On behalf of everyone at the Mental Health Center, we send you positive thoughts and the affirmation that you do matter and that your mental wellbeing is important to us.
