What are mental health affirmations? They are positive statements that help you break the habit of negative self-talk so that you can change your life.

A daily practice of using affirmations can disrupt negative thought patterns and improve your mental well-being.

Writing your own affirmations is a great way to focus on your specific needs so you can receive the best results from using your positive mental health affirmations. I have included a simple plan below to help you write statements to include in your daily affirmation practice.

Once you have your list of affirmations what do you do with them? I will walk you through how to use them and how to include them in your daily habits so they will be easy to implement and enjoy using.

If you aren’t ready to write your own affirmations I have included some at the end of the article which you may use. I also talk about when you may need a new affirmation and what to do with the ones you have outgrown.
