‘Positive Affirmation’ is a powerful term that involves the practice of positive thinking and self-empowerment. It is a mindset and an attitude which an individual can inculcate into his/her daily life. Positive affirmations are short, optimistic phrases that usually start with an ‘I’. Moreover, these phrases are always written in the ‘present tense’ and only contain positive words. In fact, they are written in a formula which enables your brain to register the information over repeated long term practice.
The human brain thinks, communicates, and processes information ‘in the present moment’. If you push your thoughts aside, there literally is no ‘past’ or ‘future’. This is the reason why positive affirmations are never written in the past or future tense. Most of our worries and negative thoughts originate by delving into the past and overthinking the future. This in turn results in individuals developing major mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression.
Depression and Suicide
Depression is not a mindset, it is reality. It is a mental health problem affecting more than 264 million people worldwide according to the World Health Organisation’s 2020 statistics. Severe depression, if left untreated can prove fatal and eventually lead to suicide. According to a study conducted by the American Association of Suicidology in 2009, two-thirds of those who commit suicide suffer from depression.
Advantages of positive affirmations
It is widely believed that the consistent practice of positive affirmations on a daily basis can improve mood and help individuals perform everyday tasks with zest and zeal. Positive affirmations also have the ability to help individuals challenge self-sabotaging and negative thoughts and overcome mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression. This practice comes in many forms. There are different types of positive affirmations for different situations such as work, money, love, and self-esteem.
