Do you feel both mentally and physically drained at the end of the day? Indeed, sometimes our reflections can be negative. But if your first thought after a long day is negative, you really set yourself at a huge disadvantage!
Below are 2 positive affirmations that you can use to develop a healthier outlook towards life!
Positive Affirmation #1 “At least . . .”
Try continuing with a phrase that starts off with “at least”. You will come to realise that it counteracts the negativity. It will end your negative thought on a positive note. After a long day at work, you finally get to catch up with friends who have not seen you in months. This adds on to your fatigue and affect work performance the next day.
Negative Example: Ended the day being very fatigued, I should not have agreed to catch up with them today.
Positive Example: Ended the day being very fatigued, at least we had a great time together today.
The difference is that you are not harping on your lack of energy but rather viewing your energy spent as worthwhile. Try it with 3 “at least”s, and it will become more and more positive.
Positive Example: Ended the day being very fatigued, at least we had a great time together today…at least I got work done to boss’ expectations…at least it was due to fun and not OT.
Positive Affirmation #2 “My contributions today . . . ”
One thing I learned from two friends is that they constantly reflect on their contributions for the day. It increases self-confidence by reminding themselves of their expanded roles in others’ lives. One of them was slightly disappointed that he could not go for a family vacation. However, he thought of ways to contribute prior to the vacation and reflected on them thereafter.
This was what he said: “I am stuck in NS and cannot go on a long awaited family vacation. However, I contributed to their happiness as I facilitated all bookings and saved them the hassle of hiring a cab by driving them to airport. I made it possible for them to go!”
If one harps on the sad news that one was unable to go, one may not think about his plausible contributions. For example, one may stay at home not wanting to even send the family off so as to lessen the dismay. Yet, he thought of how else he can contribute to their happiness to lessen their disappointment too, regarding his absence on the trip.
Make this a routine. Soon enough, these will be reinforced onto you. You will automatically react positively when negative thoughts seep in. Even when negative thoughts do not seep in, you can stay positive by reflecting on what you have contributed for yourself, others and to the world. The words that you use become your thoughts; make sure these are some of them.
