Tag Archives: 10 ways to brighten your life every day

daily positive affirmations

If you are constantly exposed to negative comments or pessimistic outlooks, that will begin to eat away at you over time. The same is true (in the opposite sense) with affirmations. If you surround yourself with daily affirmations and positive perspectives, you’ll be more likely to see the sunny side of life. How do you fill your life with light and optimism? Here are 10 quick ideas:

ONE:

Change your passwords on all your devices to something positive and uplifting (this is a trick that tennis great Serena Williams uses)

TWO:

Follow Twitter feeds that give you daily positive messages (like @Life_Affirming or @affirmationlove)

THREE:

Put a sign with a positive message over your work desk

FOUR:

Tape a fun affirmation to your mirror (i.e. “Hey good lookin’!” or “My, what a beautiful soul you have!”)

FIVE:

Read a book with a positive message. Check out Louise Griffith’s book, You Are Worth It.

SIX:

Follow an “Inspirational Quotes” board on Pinterest

SEVEN:

Write in a gratitude journal. If you’d like some guidance with getting started, take a look at this post on gratitude.

EIGHT:

Practice confronting your negative self-talk. When a pessimistic thought pops into your head, acknowledge it and firmly tell it to go away. Replace that negative thought with a positive one.

NINE:

Lift up others. A sunny attitude is contagious–when you empower and affirm those around you, that positivity will circle back to you.

TEN:

Wake up with a smile! Set your alarm to play your favorite song and see how it energizes your morning.

BONUS: Surround yourself with uplifting friends. If you find that someone is constantly dragging you down, it may be time to distance yourself from that individual.

Have fun with these little, daily affirmations! Change your attitude; change your life.
