This Winter was an especially dark season with its chilling Nor’easters and COVID safety guidelines. But, with vaccine rollout well underway and warmer weather returning, brighter days are on the horizon. In the meantime, here at Gooroo, we’ve compiled some journal prompts to help bring positivity into your life. Journalling is a great way to release any tension and organise your emotions and reactions to the world. 

What are Positive Affirmations? 

Positive Affirmations are simple phrases or statements that are used to challenge negative or unhelpful thoughts. All you have to do is repeat them to yourself every day via journal prompts or out loud to a mirror. They can be used for:

By creating a routine of positivity we maintain our integrity which helps us to respond flexibly when our concept of self is threatened. There is are three main ideas behind this:

  1. Positive affirmations help to keep up a global narrative about ourselves. We are able to view ourselves as unfixed and able to take on a variety of identities and roles.
  2. Positive affirmations teach us that we do not have to be “perfect”. Instead we learn to be competent in areas that are of personal value to us. 
  3. Positive affirmations allow us to praise ourselves and acknowledge our achievements

But, how do you work out which positive affirmations are right for you? This is where the journal prompts come into play.

These journal prompts can be considered any time of the day, but we’ve divided them up into categories we think would be the most helpful. Alongside them are some potential positive affirmations.
