We can all benefit from a little more positivity in our lives, and using positive affirmations is an easy way to give your mind a little boost. Psychologist Dr. Amy Vigliotti says, "Affirmations have a tremendous payoff. If they haven't worked for you before, don't give up yet! Picture yourself like a beautiful plant and affirmations become the water, sunlight, and soil that help you thrive. As long as you practice them consistently, you won't wilt — in fact, you will grow into your best self." Isn't that a cute analogy? It may feel weird or corny to say these things to yourself, but trust us — you'll feel better afterward!

Say them in the mirror as you're getting ready in the morning, before or during a workout, while meditating or doing yoga, when you sit down to eat, or at night before you go to bed. Choose the ones that speak to you and make you feel your best.
