Daily Affirmations to Help With Recovery

Daily Affirmations to Help With Recovery

If you’re not familiar with the practice of affirmations, they are a powerful tool to help with any area of your life. During recovery, your mental health is just as important as your physical health is. Affirmations go hand in hand with mindfulness. Practicing positive affirmations will improve your mental health, boost your daily mood, improve confidence, and calm your nerves. It’s a powerful practice that is often overlooked.


How to practice affirmations


The most effective way to implement affirmations into your daily life, is to pick a routine time and place to do them daily. Often, this best time is first thing in the morning, before you get ready for the day. Wake up, and sit up straight on your bed. Close your eyes, and focus on your breathing for a minute. This helps you feel centered with yourself. Then, start reciting your chosen affirmations. The reason this works is because your active thought is more powerful than actions. Your brain is so much more powerful than you think. Actively telling your brain to believe and be something, will help you manifest that in your daily life.
