What are positive affirmations? In a previous article covered by BetterYou, “Affirmations are daily reinforcements that when repeated often can help change how you perceive something. Affirmations can help improve your performance at work, lower stress, and combat low self-esteem and negative self-perception.” You can make it one of your New Year’s resolutions to do three to five minutes of positive affirmations every morning or every night. This is something that will help with confidence and may even benefit your communication skills.

Write and Recite
You can write down and recite your affirmations every day. Positive affirmations and manifestation correlate between one another if you are interested in practicing both. However, practicing daily affirmations can benefit you and your mental health in a variety of ways. You can look up affirmations or you can make up your own! You can do this with your kids, spouse, siblings, friends or even your parents. Bring in the new year on a positive note and practice some positive affirmations today!
