165 Short Positive Affirmations To Start Each Day

Mornings can be difficult. Time is always short, energy is lacking, and some days there just isn’t enough motivation to start the day. But, with the help of short positive affirmations, I have managed to find a way to tap into energy I didn’t know I had to kickstart my morning for a great day.

As a certified life coach, I wholeheartedly believe in the power of affirmations and their transformative potential. That’s why I can’t wait for you to dive into this list of 165 short positive affirmations to start each day!

Let’s make it a good day full of positive energy and the belief that you can do anything you put your mind to!

What Are Short Positive Affirmations?

Short positive affirmations are simple but positive statements that contain motivating and inspiring energy. When you repeat these positive words to yourself often, you make changes to your neural pathways so that your mind starts to listen to and believe them. This is a particularly great way to replace any negative beliefs that you have about yourself with true statements that are more empowering.

There are many benefits of using positive affirmations, including improved mental health, increased resilience in the face of challenges, and improved self-esteem. Depending on the affirmations you choose to focus on, you will notice different benefits across the various areas of your life.

One of the most important things I have learned about using affirmations is that they are most effective when they use positive language rather than negative language. So instead of saying “I don’t waste my time”, I choose to say “I spend my time wisely.” This simple change in language makes all the difference with effective affirmations!

Another helpful tip that I have found is using short positive affirmations that start with “I am“. When you tell your mind that you are doing something in the present tense, scientific evidence tells us that it starts to believe you! Check out this list of I Am affirmations for examples!

How To Use Short Positive Affirmations

There are many different ways that people use short positive affirmations. In my life coaching experience, I always encourage people to find the best way that works for them in their everyday life. 

When I first started using affirmations I always found it difficult to remember a big list of positive affirmations. One thing that I started doing to make it easier on myself is using affirmation cards. Affirmation cards are a convenient and powerful tool that empowers you while keeping your daily positive affirmations visible and accessible. 

Affirmation cards are also a very diverse tool. You can use them as prompts in your journaling, place them on sticky notes on your bathroom mirror as a daily reminder of the affirmations you’re working on, or shuffle the cards and draw one each day.

Short positive affirmations have the most psychological benefits when you make them a regular good habit that you engage in every single day. When you use a positive affirmation list as part of your daily routine, you will find that they are at the front of your mind the next time you are facing hard times or in times of need.

The best way to use the power of short positive affirmations daily is by checking in with yourself first thing in the morning or right before bed. Part of my bedtime routine is picking out the specific affirmations I want to focus on tomorrow so that my affirmation cards are ready to go as soon as I wake up.

Another practice that I have found effective is writing affirmations down. Spending the time to intentionally put powerful statements onto paper can help you take control of your thoughts to focus on a more positive outlook. Using a journal and positive simple statements to reflect on the negative feelings you had throughout the day can help you reframe your experiences with a more positive mindset.
