Affirmations for the Workplace
Do you ever feel drained before you even go to work? We’ve all been there. From the moment you wake up, you’re thinking about the tasks you need to complete that day. As you rush to the office, the to-do list keeps piling up, and before you know it, you’re already in a bad mood, dreading the day ahead. And it’s easy to dismiss negativity as something that comes with any job; work is work, after all, right? Not necessarily. Enter the power of morning affirmations. Keep reading to learn how you can use positive affirmations to help you stay more focused, productive, and happy at work.
What are positive affirmations?
An affirmation can be any phrase or statement that helps you overcome negative thoughts that many of us have without realizing. Affirmations can be used as motivation to help with self-esteem, boost confidence, and more. They’ve been shown to lower stress and rumination and make us more resilient.
Affirmations are also a great way to interrupt that negative spiral and shift your mindset to a more positive one. Of course, saying one sentence one time isn’t going to make you a happier person suddenly. However, using positive affirmations consistently can help replace negative beliefs with positive ones (i.e., I am successful at work).
How to use positive affirmations for work
Like all affirmations, the best ones are the phrases that are tailored to your specific situation and goals. Here are some reasons people can use affirmations for work.
- To build confidence and boost self-esteem
- To set boundaries and say no more easily
- To stop being controlling
- To relieve stress
- To increase your mood and feel more grateful
Even if you don’t believe in what you’re saying at first, keep repeating it daily. The whole point of affirmations is to get you in the mindset where you can accomplish your goals and go after what you want. For example, say you want to be able to say no at work more easily. One affirmation could be, “I establish healthy boundaries in my professional life.” Even if you don’t believe it at first, having that goal in the front of your mind daily can help you take the necessary steps to work towards it.
When you find an affirmation or a couple, you can start saying them or writing them down every morning. Make sure you carve out at least a couple of minutes before grounding yourself. Try taking deep breaths or doing a short meditation. This way, you’ll be able to stop the dreaded morning negative spiral before it starts.
