30 Positive Affirmations To Boost Your Mood

Hand Holding Flower

Positive affirmations are short, powerful statements. The idea is that they refocus your attention onto good things. It’s very easy for us to slip into negative thinking, so positive affirmations enable us to take control of our thoughts.

There are various types of affirmations. Some are for daily use, others are for as/when you may need them. Personally, I like to use them on days when my anxiety is high, or when my self esteem is particularly low.

It is advised that you read affirmations when you are alone and somewhere quiet. This increases the chances of you focusing on the words in front of you and really taking in what they are saying. With that in mind, feel free to save this for later and come back to it!

    Awesome affirmations, I love and will keep all of them in my back pocket for later. Also, this is the blogpost I’ve needed to read after feeling down and discouraged about how my blog has been going reading this has been a wonderful positive reminder.

    There are so many great positive affirmations here! I love 13, 18, 29, and 30 the most. I’m at a stage where I’m uncertain about my future but I’m trying to change it for the better, and sometimes doubt can settle in and make me feel like I’m making a mistake. It’s so helpful to remember all of these though! Thanks for sharing Ruth xx
