The power of affirmations on self-talk


The power of positive affirmations

Many tools on the site offer ideas on using positive affirmations, including postcards, ideas for making your own affirmation jar, and sets of affirmation cards that can be used daily, weekly, or wherever you need some inspiration.

Poetry is language at its most distilled and most powerful

by Rita Dove

Take a card at random, every day, week, or when you need it, reflect on what the message says to you. 

To select a card, scroll down and stop at a card at random. Then, if that card doesn't speak to you, select another.

They can be used alone, in groups, or even at team meetings to help the team focus and care for their wellbeing. 

You can also share the cards on social media with others you want to send a positive affirmation to.

Affirmations have real power; they can shape how we see the world, ourselves, and our relationships with others. So why not work on your own affirmations to inspire and offer hope. Remember, we listen to what we say to ourselves, so please be kind to yourself as words do have power.

The focus of these cards is on life purpose as we all need a reason to get out of bed or feel that our life has meaning. 

There are also resources on the site looking at how we can find meaning every day; please feel free to browse and use what is useful to you.
