5 Positive Affirmations To Kickstart Your Morning Off Right

Ever feel like you wake up dreading the day ahead?

If so, you’re not alone, but the good news is there is a simple, powerful method you can use to immediately raise your energy and set yourself on the path towards having a great day.

The trick? Say a few simple positive affirmations when you wake up.

What you think first thing in the morning has a strong impact on how you start your day. If you wake up and immediately feel stressed, tired, or disheartened about the day ahead, then you need to take a few moments to reset, and deliberately put yourself into a good.

How To Use These Affirmations

In order for these phrases to work, you need to take a moment to learn how to use them correctly.

Simply repeating an affirmation over and over again will not always work. That’s because the affirmation is only as powerful as the emotion behind it.

When you repeat these short phrases, take a moment to feel into each idea, and try to imagine a positive emotion resulting from them. That will help you to connect with your inner energy, and make the most of each affirmation.

This post from The Joy Within explains the process in more detail.

Positive Affirmations To Kickstart Your Morning

My 5 Favorite Morning Affirmations

As you read the following affirmations, feel free to adapt them to meet your own specific needs and circumstance.

I think these phrases work best when used together, and you might want to repeat each several times silently or aloud before you move on to the next.

  1. I am well. This first phrase is a perfect way to start the day because it asserts the power of your own well-being. Notice how general and light-hearted it is. The simple fact that you are awake and alive is evidence of your well-being, before any negative thoughts can creep in.
  2. This is a good morning. This next idea starts to get a little more specific about your day, while staying very general. Don’t dive into thoughts of what you have to do just yet, simply notice that today, without any qualifications, can be good.
  3. Today is a new day. Focusing on the fact that it is a new day almost always feels refreshing. There can be huge relief and optimism within the idea that you have a fresh start and a new opportunity to accomplish whatever it is you want to do today.
  4. I like that today I will ____. Now, begin to focus a little more specifically on the day ahead, but only on aspects that you like, or can feel excitement about. Choose one or two things you will do, and remind yourself why you like them.
  5. I am excited about the day ahead. Lastly, try to move from that feeling of liking something about your day, to feeling excited about it. Repeat the positive ideas from #4, and become more engaged with them.

If you follow these 5 affirmations, repeating them for a few moments in order, you will start to feel more positive and optimistic about your day.

This energy, in turn, will help you to feel motivated, and will set you on the path for a good, productive, and fun day ahead!

As Tony Robbins says, “The power of positive thinking is the ability to generate a feeling of certainty in yourself when nothing in the environment supports you.”

So, take some time to feel that certainty in yourself, and start your day off right!

Positive Words Analysis: New Thought Pattern Louise Hay

POSITIVE WORDS ANALYSIS

Paper PWR3/25.05.2016 

Text analyzed: Affirmations contained only in the column “New Thought Pattern” found in the book “You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise Hay (in some books are the pages 146 until 207). Basically, I have analyzed only the affirmations (new thoughts pattern) that Louise Hay published in her book – these “new thoughts patterns” are to be repeated by people in order to heal themselves from certain diseases (“dis-eases” as Louse Hay calls them).

Tool used in analysis: Positive Words Researcher

Conclusions 

Significant positive words found in the text: 978 positive words from 4466 total number of words. Percent of positive words in the text is 21.90%.

Personal conclusions: The text has a high quality of positive words. Although a lot of positive words are missing (nuances are missing), probably being included in general words such as “life”, “love”, “good” etc.

The most used positive word is “LIFE” which was found 127 times (12,99% from total positive words).

Personal conclusions: Louse Hay affirmations are focused on the notion of “life”. All positive words from this text are meant to clear and update the notion/space/consciousness represented by “life”.

The 2nd most used positive word is “LOVE” which was found 124 times (12,68% from total positive words).

Personal conclusions: In the Christian Bible it is said “Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.” as per the —New Living Translation, 2007. If a Christian reads the analysed text it will conclude that a lot of truth is embodied in these affirmations as the world „love” is so frequently used. My comment is that not many people know what love is/how to practice love. As I learned at one point in life, if you want to know what „love” is you must start by practicing first „kindness”, then practice „loving kindness”, then you practice „love” ( in 3 directions: towards yourself, other people, life). The word „kindness” is not found in the analysed text (only the word „kind” is found 1 time). The word „loving-kindness” is not found at all.

When the human mind reads this text it will subconsciously draw the conclusion that „love is the most important thing in life”. Albert Ellis, second most influential psychotherapist in history, says that when you transform love in a „need” and not keep it as a „preference”, it will significantly disturb you, making you have neurotic emotions in your life. Therefore, I draw the conclusion that maybe this is the reason why so many people believe that affirmations don’t work and they even harm you. It is a matter of language in my opinion. Because „love” is used for too many emotions. This is one of the reasons why I am building the list of positive words since 2013, to show people that there is a wide range of positive emotions. Love has more nuances than we imagine, it is reckless to put so many positive emotions under one big ruff called „love”, when we do not know these positive emotions. Love will feel like a big basket full of …. what?… we don’t know…. because we don’t have a clear language of positive emotions.

The 3rd most found word in the text is „SAFE”.

Personal conclusion: I think it adds a lot of peace to the text (doubles the effect of the word „peace” also used in the text – 5th place). The word „safe” is very calming for the mind. It is a feminine word, it adds feminine energy. My thoughts are that Louse Hay used so much this word because she is a woman and also because she had experiences in her life when she was not safe. Later in life, she used this positive word a lot in her own mind, therefore she found the solution to empower herself to feel safe and to attract safe living conditions. We can all learn to remember this, to use the word „safe” in our daily inner-dialogue.

The 4th most found word in the text is „JOY”

Personal conclusion: I like the word joy. Another word connected with joy is „happiness”, which was not found at all in the text, therefore my opinion is that Louise Hay intentionally replaced the word „happiness” with „joy” to refocus the human mind. Another word that could have been used is „contentment”.
