It can be overwhelming and difficult living in the world today, especially as a teenager or young adult.
With the negative events going on and everything you see and watch happening on social media, It can make a person have a negative mindset sometimes about life.
However, that can change with Positive Affirmations.
Remember the saying, “ You are what you think”
Today, I'll be sharing some examples of positive affirmations that can help boost your confidence and self-esteem.
Let’s get to it
What are positive affirmations?
First of all, let's understand what positive affirmation means and how it can help you.
Simply put, positive affirmations are words you speak to yourself on a daily basis with the purpose of effecting a positive change in your life.
The brain is very powerful, so these words help the brain to always think these things.
As you begin to say these words to yourself, it might seem awkward at first. As time goes on, you’ll soon realize that your mind starts to assimilate it and you start believing it.
Positive affirmations help to train your mind to believe positive things. Doing this can help you develop a positive mentality and mindset.
For teenagers battling with self-confidence and self-esteem issues, these positive words can help build their self-confidence and remove every negative image they have of themselves.
How you can use positive affirmations as a teenager
To use positive affirmations effectively as a teenager or young adult, Say them out loud daily. Make a conscious effort to recite these words every day. I recommend you say it every morning when you wake up, and also before you sleep at night.
It’ll be the first thing you say and think about in the morning and the last thing you have in your mind before you sleep. Remember to say it out loud. Just like you recite your national pledge, see this as a pledge to yourself.
Put them in the best positions in your room or house. You can hang them on the wall or put them in places where you’ll always see them.
Repeat the affirmations as many times as you want. You can also say it with your loved one, and the person repeats it. You can do this with your parent, sibling, or even a friend.
