170 Positive Affirmations to Start your Day (for Men, Women, and General)

The first few moments of your day set its direction. If you wake up and immediately check your phone, you could be bombarded with emails and reminders of all the tasks you have to deal with. This can shift your mindset to a negative and anxious space within the first few moments of your day. And that feeling can be difficult to shake as your day continues. So, what if you try beginning your morning with positive statements about yourself, your life, and all they can be? We firmly believe that positive affirmations can change our days which in time, can change our lives.

daily affirmations

Affirmations are simply a declaration in the form of a statement. Affirmations use the power of attraction to bring more positivity into the life of the speaker. In stating your affirmations, you can shift your mindset. Sometimes negative or unproductive thought patterns form in our heads and when they play in a repetitive loop, they tend to reinforce themselves and become harder to let go of. Affirmations create an opportunity to break those thought patterns and choose positivity.

This list of positive affirmations is meant to help bring positive energy into your day as soon as it begins. The first section deals with newness and the idea of beginning each day with a blank slate. The second section focuses on our physical state of being, it sends positivity into our bodies and establishes gratitude for our bodies. The third area helps to begin the day with positive intentions. The final part reminds us that self-love is the key to positivity.

We recommend saying them out loud as sometimes getting out of our heads can be the best medicine. Though, you may prefer to recite them in your head while you are commuting to work, while in the shower, or even making your morning cup of joe.

Starting your day off with positive affirmations can truly change its course. Start with a few at a time and keep adding. Monitor how they sit with you throughout the day and affirm whenever you feel yourself slipping into a negative space.

And remember, the more you can make reciting these positive affirmations part of your daily routine, the better each and every day will begin.

Either read the following affirmations off one by one or begin with the ones that resonate with you most. Say them with power and their meaning will manifest more effectively.
