Journaling is one of the best forms of free therapy out there.

We encourage all of our followers to take a little time out of your day each day and write. Even if you don’t consider yourself a “good writer,” who’s to judge? It’s just you and your journal. If you’re stuck on what exactly to write about, we have favorite topic for you to tackle each morning:

Positive affirmations. 

What is an affirmation? Affirmations are positive statements that can help you to challenge and overcome self-sabotaging and negative thoughts. When you repeat them often, and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes.

We’ve listed out five key reasons why a daily positive affirmation session is healthy for your mind and spirit.

  1. You become aware of your daily thoughts, reducing the risk of letting negativity creep in. You feel more in control.
  2. They help keep small things in perspective. Remind yourself of bigger picture.
  3.  A recent study shows that optimistic people have healthier hearts, and affirmations help you to stay positive.
  4. They keep you in a constant state of gratitude. Who doesn’t love that?
  5. They help improve your overall quality of life.

So, what are you waiting for? Grab a journal and start putting good thoughts into the universe. You’ll start to notice the universe has your back.

“We all want to know and be known. That’s why doing good is so powerful when the focus is first and foremost the people and not the project.”
