Daily affirmations are positive phrases that a person repeats to him or herself through meditation or prayer, each day, that complements the thought process. Daily affirmations are beneficial because they promote a positive mindset and focus on intentions for a fruitful and healthy life.
Words can be powerful, and when reaffirmed each day, they can ingrain and influence positive feelings and behaviors. They are a constant reminder of our goals and how we want to feel about ourselves, our loved ones, and our lives. In recovery, they remind us of the path we are on, why we are on it, and why it is so important to remain steady and strong along the way.
