Daily Affirmations to Follow for Your Mental Health!

Daily Affirmations to Follow for Your Mental Health!

Did you know that we humans follow affirmations daily, maybe knowingly or unknowingly?.

Positive affirmations have deep impact on our mental health balance. But what exactly are affirmations? And how does it play such an important role in any person’s life? Well, I am writing two articles in this series. In first article I am listing down few affirmation that I practice in my life and in second article we will learn steps to practice these affirmations.

Affirmations are a personal growth strategy used to promote self-confidence and acceptance in one’s own abilities. When people are under depression, they normally become pessimistic towards life and these daily affirmations when said out loud improves their mental health. Simply put, affirmation means to provide encouragement and emotional support to the ones who need the most.

Let’s recall a moment, where you were flooded with loads of problems, and you calmed yourself with your words, like –

“It’s okay, I will get through this!”

“I believe in my ability to resolve these issues “

Didn’t the situation get a lot easier to accept and handle, just by these words?

Affirmations help the brain to take situations positively, in fact, it encourages one to do their best to reach the goal. And isn’t it true that When you truly believe you can do something; your actions follow your mind? Even though affirmations are not magic bullets, but below are some of the positive words, which I follow the most during difficult times –

“I Love Myself For The Way I Am!”

Self-acceptance is an underrated term, but a much needed one in this era of social media. Whenever a person starts thinking of themselves negatively, they ought to do things without heart. For example, you begin to put yourself down because of your body posture, personality, or dressing sense. You went in the party, and made it in your mind that you aren’t looking good. As a result, you won’t be able to enjoy the party and the people around.

Hence, always focus on positive things, and be grateful for whatever you have, or however you look. Remember, it’s you and your body, and it’s your duty to respect it all!

“I Am Capable And Strong Enough To Overcome Problems!”

Never disrespect yourself and your abilities to perform certain tasks. Even if a situation feels difficult to handle, give your best move every time. Think about all the things you have achieved in the past by overcoming the negative thoughts, like –

“I have the worst communication skills. I will probably fail at this interview, because everyone else here is much experienced and looks confident. No way this company will hire me, I should opt out.”

With a positive affirmation:

“I will give my best shot to this interview like never before as I have all the necessary skills with experience.”

And you got confident with your words inside out, isn’t it magical?

“My Feelings Matters”

The only person who will take best care of you is just you. Either you can make yourself the happiest person, or an anxious one. Hence, always do something that makes you happy. Be it any sport, or a specific hobby, or your favorite cuisine, have it! Make choices in such a way that make you happy, don’t be a reason for your self-destruction.

I Will Allow Myself To Be In A Healthy Relationship Only

Take Care of where you invest your feelings on, and in which kind of relationship you stay in. Unhealthy relationships often turn out to be a toxic one and are among the major causes of depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. Understand your group, your close ones and evaluate them. If they are doing any harm to you, both mentally or physically, let it go. Better things are waiting your way! 

I Must Control My Anger For Myself

Try to forgive things, because it’s for you and nobody else. You can’t change every situation around. Learn to let go your anger and be the best version of yourself.

Try saying yourself a positive affirmation like “I will try my best to stay calm even if I will get frustrated”.  You can also try deep breathing and grounding exercises to calm your body and mind.

I Will Take Care Of My Body, Mind, and Actions

You are responsible for your overall wellness, and for this try practicing neutral affirmations.

I will keep myself in good health, whatever the situation will be. Because my body is my treasure, and it does a lot for me.

I will regularly consume nutritious food and would avoid eating junk for my health.

Also, to keep yourself physically healthy, try exercising regularly, get enough sleep, and Spend time on doing things you enjoy.

Never get into the trap of thinking “I’m busy”, instead take your health as your top most priority, because if you won’t, nobody else will! 

I Deserve To be Happy

There’s a big difference between positive affirmations and Ultra-positive affirmations. If any situation, job, relationship or the place is not giving you happiness just think about the way to change them.


Consider making these slight changes to make yourself truly happy without conditions.

Be patient throughout the process, because this time it’s about your mental health, and these affirmations act like magic.
