What are the very first thoughts that come to mind when you awaken? Do you feel refreshed and eager to start a new day? Or do you start reviewing yesterday’s issues and drama? Since your thoughts determine the energy you attract into your life, positive morning affirmations to start the day can make a huge difference.
Do Morning Affirmations Work?
Yes! Morning is the absolute best time to say daily affirmations because your mind hasn’t had a chance to start going down a negative path yet. Your thoughts are powerful, so it’s important that you catch them early in the day, so you can choose thoughts and words that support your intentions.
Most people simply react to what’s going on around them. But that makes you highly vulnerable to negativity. On the other hand, when you deliberately choose your thoughts from the moment you wake up, your day will unfold in a much more positive way.
As you move through your day, your naturally high vibration gets weighed down by stress, worry, dramatic people, and so on. So when you try to say an affirmation at that point, it’s not as effective. This is because the way you’re feeling (stressed, annoyed, angry) doesn’t match the vibe of the affirmation you’re saying (joyful, peaceful, positive). When there’s a mismatch between how you’re feeling and what you’re saying, affirmations aren’t very helpful.
This is what makes positive morning affirmations so powerful. While you sleep, all that momentum behind your negative thoughts and feelings stops. As a result, your vibration naturally rises. So in those first moments of waking, before you grab your phone or interact with family, or start thinking about work, it’s the perfect time to start affirming that your day will unfold beautifully. In a way, you’re getting out ahead of every situation that you’ll face during the day, and directing positive energy to it. Positive morning affirmations have magical power!
Benefits of Daily Affirmations
Positive affirmations really only benefit you when you say them on a regular basis. In addition, they work best when you say them before you’re in a state of stress. This is all about momentum: if you are already annoyed or anxious or feeling down on yourself, law of attraction will keep delivering you more things to feel negatively about. It’s just the way the universe works.
On the other hand, when you say your affirmations first thing in the morning, while your emotions are still neutral, you will be much more successful. This puts you in the driver’s seat by enabling you to choose how you feel, instead of allowing your feelings take you over.
Most people have very little power over their emotions, and have never even thought twice about it! This is why more people than ever before are unhappy: we are exposed to way more stimuli now that we all have devices and social media. This fact, combined with the inability to control how you feel is going to cause your emotions are going to bounce all over the place as you react to your environment
But there is another way, you can learn to choose how you want to feel. And that’s exactly what you’re doing when you say positive morning affirmations. You are exercising a remarkable power that’s severely underrated! When you master your own emotions, you truly do become unstoppable.
Imagine how life would be if your day wasn’t ruined by a negative interaction with someone else. What if you could choose to not let it get to you because feeling good is just too important to you? Talk about life changing! This is the ultimate freedom!
When you practice morning affirmations daily, you begin to care deeply about how you feel, and you’re less likely to allow others to throw you off your game. In a way, you become addicted to thinking positively, and once you experience that level of clarity, you never want to give it up.
Here are 3 reasons why it’s best to say positive affirmations in the morning.
Makes it a habit to think positive
Repetition is key when you’re forming a new habit. In fact, it takes about 2 months of repeated behavior before it becomes second nature. So if you want your morning affirmations to stick, you need to integrate them into your daily routine. Plus, the earlier in the day you say them, the less likely you are to run out of time or forget.
Morning routine sets the tone for the day
We already covered this a bit, but the time to use your positive affirmations is before you need them. Instead of considering them a tool to dig yourself out of an emotional rut, use positive daily affirmations as an ingredient for creating the best version of each day.
Affirmations are just one thing you can do to boost your morning routine. Here are some other things to consider adding to your morning ritual:
- Drink some lemon water – I pour myself a glass at night and put it on my end table for morning
- Make your bed – read how this is the perfect opportunity to practice mindfulness
- Do some stretching – your body deserves a warm-up before serving you all day!
- Make this a sacred time for practicing solitude
- Pull an oracle card – it’s nice to have a theme in mind as you go about your day. If you don’t know how to use oracle cards, follow me on Instagram or Facebook @thehavenshoppe. I post one for you daily as part of my morning ritual.

You have the most positive energy when you first wake up
When you sleep, the momentum behind all of your thoughts comes to a halt. So when you first wake up in the morning, you have the best chance of resonating with your affirmations. In other words, your affirmations will feel good to you at this time of day, because you’re already in a relaxed state. When the affirmations trigger positive emotions within you, that means they’re working.
Note – when I refer to ‘morning’ I really just mean when you wake up for the day. So if you work 3rd shift and wake up in the afternoon, that’s totally fine.
What Is A Good Morning Affirmation?
There are several examples below of morning affirmations, but you should feel free to make up your own, if you want to. Here are a few things to keep in mind when coming up with your own. A good morning affirmation will:
- feel good and ‘right’ when you say it
- focus on YOU (not anyone else)
- be about the present moment or the day ahead (the past has no power – stay forward focused!)
