We all know the secret to staying healthy and full of energy is by staying happy and positive. But sometimes we feel like we just don’t have enough strength to keep going. It’s surprising what a positive outlook can do for us. These positive affirmations for health and wellness can help you stay positive, give good vibes and enhance your inner strength.
Health and wellness are a result of having a positive attitude.
Many people think of health and wellness in terms of how they look, but this is a limited perspective. Health and wellness are mainly the product of having a positive attitude toward yourself. If you want to live a healthy life, you shouldn’t beat yourself up all the time. You should be cool with your feelings; you shouldn’t feel guilty about feeling down or anxious. It’s good to remember that everyone has bad days, so don’t worry about what other people say or do—worry about being true to yourself!
Happiness is an inside job.
Happiness is an inside job. If you’re looking for happiness in external things or people, you will never be happy. You won’t ever find it there, because it’s not there.
Happiness comes from within. Maintaining a positive attitude and outlook on life is the most important step to feeling happy with yourself and your life.
Stop comparing yourself to other people and their lives—start focusing on what you have and can do instead.
Affirmations for Health and Wellness
Here are some tips for creating powerful affirmations:
- Make each affirmation short and easy to say or record it as a reminder on your phone so you can listen to it periodically throughout the day (for example, when in the shower or while driving). Say each affirmation 10 times per day for 21 days (or longer if there is no change).
- Say each affirmation with feeling and conviction—use words that have meaning for you personally. The more meaningful they are, the better they will work!
My body is free of sickness and disease right now.
You have to be healthy not only in body but also in mind and spirit. Health is a journey, not a destination. To keep yourself on that path, you need to take care of your body and mind by fueling them with both nutritious foods and positive thoughts.
The better you treat your body, the healthier it will be.
“I am free of sickness and disease right now because my immune system is strong and healthy. I will never give up on this battle against sickness.”
I am open and willing to have a more healthy approach to life.
The power of the mind is amazing. The words that come out of our mouths are like magic spells that can work for or against us. When we think about and share positive feelings, ideas and descriptions about ourselves, others, and the world around us, we experience a sense of happiness and well-being. It is our birthright to be healthy and happy.
It is imperative to avoid negative self-talk or gossip about others. There are times when it’s difficult not to feel overwhelmed with feelings of anger, jealousy or hopelessness, but it’s important to stay in control of one’s emotions so as not to cause harm to oneself or others.
Be kind to yourself by having a regular practice of positive affirmations; they will make you feel good even if it feels awkward at first! Here’s an example: “I am open and willing to have a more healthy approach to life.”
I am always making healthy choices that affect every part of my being.
This is one of the key affirmations for health and wellness.
Making healthy choices affects every part of your being: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.
If you are striving to make better choices, start small with an affirmation such as “I am always making healthy choices that affect every part of my being.” By choosing this affirmation, you are telling yourself that you will become more aware and make healthier choices. This can inspire you to change bad habits into good ones by making better decisions.
How do you turn your affirmation into a habit? Start with one small change at a time that can be continued daily.
For example, if you want to eat healthier and not consume so much sugar or processed foods, the first step is to read labels when shopping at the grocery store.
This will help you choose healthier products that contain less or no added sugar or preservatives.
Teach yourself how to prepare meals from scratch instead of buying processed foods from the supermarket aisle or freezer section in order to avoid consuming harmful ingredients like high fructose corn syrup and food dyes which have been linked with cancers as well as many other diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and stroke.
Begin by cooking one meal per day for several months before gradually increasing your frequency until all meals are homemade!
I am good at taking care of myself and others.
To be able to take care of others, you first have to take care of yourself. Care for yourself, and in so doing, ensure that you are healthy enough to help those around you.
Give yourself the energy and time to be there for those who need your support. By letting go of the belief that “taking care of myself comes last”, I was able to honor my needs and give back in a way that is sustainable, healthy, and empowering.
If we cannot take care of ourselves when we desperately need a break or a breather, how can we expect our bodies to cope?
My mind, body, and spirit are strong, peaceful, healthy, and whole.
Having a positive attitude can help you achieve your health and wellness goals because when you are healthy, it is easier to achieve your goals.
When you have a positive attitude, you will be more successful in life. Having a positive attitude will help you succeed in life.
I release all feelings that no longer serve me in a positive way.
When you have a feeling, it’s usually because something has happened in the world. Feelings are just the body’s way of making us aware of what is going on around us. When we feel sad, it’s because something has made us sad.
When we feel happy, it’s because something has made us happy.
However, sometimes our feelings get out of hand and do not serve us well at all. If you’re ever feeling stressed or overwhelmed, sometimes this can lead to unhealthy coping mechanisms like drinking too much or eating too much junk food.
If you’re feeling angry or depressed constantly, these feelings can lead to negative thoughts that affect your self-esteem and ability to cope with other situations in a healthy manner.
Focusing solely on how you feel at any given moment can be detrimental if those feelings are negative ones that do not serve you in a positive way!
Each day, I am growing stronger.
Everyone’s journey is unique and there is no right or wrong way to develop healthier habits. It takes time, effort, and patience. Some days you will feel like you are making great progress; other days, your best intentions won’t go as planned.
Whatever your circumstances may be, it’s important to remember that it’s a process. No matter how many times you fall off the wagon, each day affords a new opportunity for growth and change.
In this way, every moment of every day provides opportunities for healing and recovery.
Yes—you can do this!
I am healing and strengthening every day.
Healing is a process. Every day, you are getting stronger and healthier. The pain and discomfort you feel, the setbacks, failures, and disappointments all make you stronger.
The people who disappoint you help you learn what you don’t want in your life. Your shortcomings inspire you to grow and become better.
Your successes motivate you to keep growing and pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone.
You are not defined by your past mistakes or your present weaknesses; instead, they give you a chance to heal as well as grow into a better version of yourself each day.
When I let go of what doesn’t serve me, I am better able to receive the things that do serve me positively.
You are encouraged to read this affirmation after a recent life experience, such as the end of a relationship or a job loss, when you find yourself feeling low.
When we let go of something that no longer serves us in a positive way, it makes space for things and experiences that do serve us positively. While this can be hard to do at first, letting go is often necessary if we want to create room for the new. When we let go of what does not serve us positively, it’s easier for us to receive more positive things into our lives.
Letting go does not have to mean saying goodbye forever—it just means that we are letting go of these experiences in order to allow more positive things into our lives. By letting go of what doesn’t serve us positively, I am better able to receive the things that do serve me positively.
My body is powerful.
No matter what size or shape you are, there is a truth to your body that is powerful and correct. Beyond this, there are so many layers of power at play in every organ and system!
It’s important to be present in the moment, finding the power within your body. Even if we’re under duress, a moment of calm and stillness can change everything for the better.
If your body is working really well right now, it will work even better tomorrow; if it’s working against you, you’d best figure out how to right it before the situation gets worse.
I get better every single day.
I’m getting better every single day.
It can be easy to look at the negatives in life, but I choose to focus on the positive. When I do this, I find that my attitude is much more upbeat. No matter how challenging things get, it is still possible for me to see the good and beauty around me.
My health and wellness are of utmost importance to me. When I make healthy choices, my body, mind, and spirit are all stronger and more resilient. Every little thing that I do makes a difference in how good I feel today and tomorrow.
When it comes right down to it, my health is my responsibility. While others can provide support or guidance, nobody else has the power over my thoughts or actions as I do.
This means that when someone says something unkind about my appearance or body size, for example, I am responsible for deciding how much of an impact their words have on me.
If you’re serious about improving your quality of life through better physical health and mental well-being, then affirmations may be just what you need!
Positive thinking plays a major role in our lives because our minds are powerful tools that can help us overcome obstacles while also giving us the strength we need during difficult times.
If you don’t believe this yet then just try repeating these phrases out loud until they become part of your daily routine: “I am getting better every single day” or “I will succeed no matter what happens!”
I eat well, exercise, and get plenty of rest to help balance my life.
It’s important to understand that not everyone will have the same priorities. Some may place more emphasis on exercise, while others may find a healthy diet to be more important. But all of them are interrelated and necessary for a balanced lifestyle, so if you find that one area is lacking or neglected, you should work toward improving in that area. You can start by doing small things like taking a walk during your lunch break or choosing an apple for dinner instead of fries.
I feed my spirit. I train my body. I focus my mind. This is my time.
- This is my time. I’m the only one in control of my life.
- I feed my spirit. My soul flourishes when nourished with positive things, like music and art, and exercise.
- I train my body. Staying healthy means regularly exercising, eating well, getting plenty of sleep, and drinking lots of water!
- I focus my mind. Distractions are everywhere, but when you’re able to focus on what you need to do — whether it’s reading a book or completing a project — that’s when your best work comes out!
I am healthy, happy, and whole.
The words you say to yourself have a huge impact on how you feel. If you think “I’m so tired” all the time, then your body will feel exhausted before it even has done anything.
By repeating this positive affirmation, your body and mind will believe that they are healthy and well. Even if you don’t particularly eat well or exercise often, this affirmation will help make up for it by making your self-esteem stronger and thus improving your mood!
Affirmations can also open up new possibilities in life.* By telling yourself that you deserve happiness & good health now, tomorrow’s workouts will seem easier. You’ll start to lead an optimistic lifestyle where anything is possible!
You can motivate yourself without being mean to yourself.
Here are a few helpful tactics to reduce the amount of negative self-talk in your life and replace it with affirmations that will keep you motivated:
- You can try reframing the way you see your mistakes. Instead of saying “I’m such an idiot for forgetting to pack my lunch,” try saying, “I’ll be sure to leave time for that tonight.” If you forget something small, consider it evidence that getting better at things is a process, not a destination. There isn’t any real shame in being human!
- Try taking some deep breaths as soon as you find yourself thinking negative things about yourself. Doing so can help calm down your nervous system and take some of the stress out of the situation—it’s hard to be agitated when your body is relaxed! This trick can also help you think more clearly about what happened so you can figure out how to do better next time without beating yourself up.
- Ask yourself if what happened truly was worth beating yourself up over. If it was just a small mistake or mishap, remember that most people don’t burst into flames when they make blunders (that would be utterly inconvenient). Try putting whatever happened in perspective by asking yourself how much worse it could have been—and give thanks that it wasn’t!
Affirmations can help you keep healthy, stay positive, and protect yourself from the everyday stresses and strains of life. They are a great way to begin thinking in a positive way about all you have to be thankful for.
