Anxiety is part and parcel of our daily life. Everything, every thought, every action makes us anxious. Are you the one who is anxious all the time? Do thoughts of the future add to your anxiety? Are you tired of taking medicines to cure anxiety? Are meditation, yoga, and workouts not helping too? You are constantly surrounded by negative thoughts? Do you have negative affirmations all the time?  

Your cure lies in practising positive affirmations.

So, what is a positive affirmation? How does it work?

Positive affirmations are positively loaded phrases or statements that are used to challenge unhelpful or negative thoughts. People can use positive affirmations to motivate them, encourage positive changes in their lives, or boost their self-esteem.

Some of these positive affirmation quotes are:

  • I am safe and secure.
  • I embrace change.
  • I face my challenges with courage and strength.
  • My past does not predict my future.
  • I have survived every day before this one.
  • I am right where I should be.
  • Peace dwells within me.
  • Everything is unfolding for my greater good.

To begin with, try chanting this early morning when your mind and heart are not loaded with any thoughts. You are fresh to plan the day and chanting these will make your day fruitful. It will unfold positivity in you and with time, a new you will emerge.

Now you will ask: Do positive affirmations work?

Positive affirmations are more effective when they are future-oriented rather than thinking about the past. Positive affirmations will not work if you do not act and put in your best effort. These phrases boost motivation and self-esteem, but you must be the one to follow through.

It will not be effective if you do not do it daily. If you do not practice it every day. It should be your constant companion. As soon as you face any challenge, positive affirmations should fill up your mind.

How do you keep positive affirmations?

The power of affirmations lies in repeating them to yourself regularly. It is useful to recite your affirmations several times a day (have them pop up in your notifications). You also need to repeat your affirmations as soon as you engage in the negative thought or behavior that you want to overcome.

What is the affirmation theory?

Self-affirmation theory asserts that the overall goal of the self-system is to protect an image of its self-integrity, of its moral and adaptive adequacy. When this image of self-integrity is threatened, people respond in such a way as to restore self-worth.

“To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.”

What are these affirmations? Affirmations are our mental vitamins, providing the supplementary positive thoughts we need to balance the barrage of negative events and thoughts we experience daily. Despite everything, it is still you. You should tell yourself and repeat quite often: I will always find a way and a way will always find me.


The way you have hashtags # on Instagram, you can create some interesting hashtags and save them on your desktop or phone. When you read these or look at them, you feel energized and positive. Believe me, it helps!

A few hashtags could be:







Besides some motivating thoughts in your head:

  • Happiness is cuddling with my favourite things.
  • Adventure awaits, let us explore together.
  • Dream big, little one.
  • Forever young at heart.

Now you will say: I have noticed that for some people positive affirmations do not work because they are chronically anxious. Maybe, but if you want positive affirmations to work effectively, you need to be patient, and consistent and should take it seriously.

Before that ask yourself: Are you doing the affirmations for the sake of doing it or because you take the practice seriously? If you are not being serious enough, you will never feel the energy. You will never get inspired.

Affirmations are just like pep-talk.

Have you ever noticed that players or performers like to listen to some kind of pep talk to boost their confidence before the match or the concert begins?

Affirmations work the same way. You need to be serious when doing it.

If you are doing it for the sake of doing it, then you are wasting your time. You must take it seriously.

Somehow, your affirmations are the things that you want in life.

Even after so many pointers and arguments, you are not feeling energetic? You must use these affirmations to feel energetic and enjoy the flow of energy within you.

 It is important when you use affirmations that you feel the energy they hold. The words do not mean anything to you, except the meaning you give them.

It is the emotion, the meaning, and the energy that you associate with your affirmations that make them powerful.

You must incorporate emotions and energy into your affirmations.

You must feel the energy flowing in you.

This way, feel happy, spread happiness, and be HappyHO!
