Definition

Having a positive attitude is one of the easiest things that you can do to help improve your mood and confidence.

Positive affirmations are simple things that you can say out loud, or write in a journal to yourself. These are things like “I'm energetic” “I’m smart” or even “I did a great job on my report last night.” Don’t let negative thoughts cloud your brain. Instead, try to think about the positives in every situation and see if you notice a change in your mood.

Why it works

Constantly being in a negative mindset may trap you into a false sense of failure. There is a popular saying “think it into reality.” Tell yourself in the morning that you aren’t tired and are ready to get up and go.

Positive affirmations can help rewire your brain to lessen your fears and insecurities. Although there is no guarantee of success - the cost of reassuring yourself is just 3-4 seconds of thinking or journal writing.
