Positive Affirmations for Sobriety

Learning to Support Yourself Through Positivity

We've all heard the expression that we are our own worst critics. But with a positive perspective, we can learn to become our most reliable support system.

The experts at Tranquil Shores are here to share the ways that a shift in perspective can help you along your wellness and recovery journey.

What is a Positive Affirmation?

An affirmation is a positive phrase that can help you to work past self-sabotaging or otherwise negative thoughts and feelings. As the saying goes, you speak things into existence. When you continue to repeat positive ideas to yourself, the more you believe them and make the necessary changes in your life to make them become true.

Although affirming is often considered to be a spiritual and magical ideal, research suggests that there are long-lasting positive effects of this practice. Some of the benefits of practicing positive affirmations regularly include:

  • Lower stress levels.
  • More receptive to feedback.
  • More likely to make positive changes in face of constructive criticism.
  • Improved productivity and concentration.
  • Improved self-esteem and confidence.

Affirmations That Support You in Recovery

Whether you prefer to recite them in the mirror or jot them down in your journal, practicing positive affirmations can help you as you navigate the road toward recovery and wellness. They help to mold a more positive view of yourself and your ability to take control of your future.

Some positive affirmations that can help you along your journey toward wellness and recovery include:

  • I am getting better every day.
  • I can achieve anything I put my mind to.
  • I matter.
  • I am strong.
  • I believe in myself.
