Affirmations are positive statements which are used to to help us challenge and overcome difficult or negative thoughts. They are simple statements which are repeated as part of a routine to help us move through challenges. Affirmations can also be displayed so that we can read them frequently and help us to make positive changes to our mindset, approaches and next steps.
Affirmations are thought to help individuals to release negativity, fear and worry. The more that they are used, the more that they can influence our thought patterns. They are thought to decrease stress and increase positive feelings.
