Positive affirmations, often known as affirmations, are statements that, when frequently repeated, have the power to alter unfavorable attitudes and cognitive patterns. You can say them to yourself or out loud. Usually, the purpose of these remarks is to encourage action, change one’s perspective from one that is negative to one that is positive, lessen stress, endure through hardships, and boost wellbeing and self-esteem.

Affirmations support and enhance your sense of self-worth. They can also function as a means of counterbalancing and supplanting your pessimistic and apprehensive thought processes regarding stress, despair, bodily discomfort, and worry.

However, there is a chance to replace the negative affirmation with a good one if you can identify it. You may persuade yourself, “I can learn from my mistakes,” in this situation.

Benefits of Affirmation Technique

Using affirmations to enhance your self-esteem

In a small randomized controlled study, researchers employed functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to better understand how affirmations altered internal processing and reward systems in the brain. Researchers discovered that those who utilized values-based positive affirmations showed more activity in the reward region of their brains—neural pathways linked to positive self-perception and self-competence—than those who did not.

Affirmations May Be Beneficial for Changing Behavior

A meta-analysis of 144 studies found that affirmations may help people who are attempting to achieve positive behavioral changes (such as sticking to a healthy diet plan, cutting back on alcohol, or cutting back on caffeine).

Using affirmations to manage stress

You may be able to solve problems under pressure by using affirmations. In one randomized controlled study, participants outperformed those who repeated an affirmation linked to a value they didn’t think was important to them in a stressful word-association problem-solving task. Examples of these values were creativity, independence, and sense of humor.


Although affirmations can be helpful in all these ways, they shouldn’t be used in place of professional treatment if necessary. Assisting with self-doubt, low self-esteem, worry, despair, or tension that doesn’t go away is something the Cleveland Clinic suggests talking to a mental health expert.
