Affirmations are a simple and useful tool that can help with depressive symptoms.[1]A positive affirmation is a self-statement that emphasizes your strengths, values, and favorable qualities.

According to cognitive theory, depression is caused by distorted negative beliefs.[2]Positive affirmations can be used to counter negative perceptions and bolster confidence in your abilities.[3]For instance, you can replace the thought, “Nobody will ever love me” with the affirmation “I am worthy of love.”Many people who use affirmations recommend standing in front of a mirror as they repeat specific phrases to themselves, but you can perform them anywhere you feel is comfortable and effective.
