Here in the Northern Hemisphere, Spring has truly sprung and so my mind naturally feels a little bit more positive thanks to more daylight and signs of growth popping up everywhere. I am also tentatively starting to think about summer and what those months will be... However, with all this comes a natural tendency to think a bit too far ahead rather than keep my mind in the here and now, which as many of you is kinda basic level mindfulness stuff!
But of course, positive affirmations don't have to be all about mindfulness, and that is definitely reflected in this month's collection of daily positive affirmations for April. We are focusing on the here and now, and we are also building hope for the future, but in ways that pull in the enjoyment of other things - our bodies, music, exercise, food, friends.
Daily Positive Affirmations for April
As always with these positive affirmations, the goal is always more about finding a small number that really speak to you rather than making every single one work for you. Yes, there is a new daily affirmation for every day of the month, but you don't have to see this list as one you need to work through chronologically. I would much rather you dip in and out of the list and write down or remember the ones that really move you or click somewhere inside. You can read more about how and why affirmations work here.
For more positive affirmations you can find January, February and March's lists of affirmations, and also you can find 100 daily positive affirmations here, lists of positive affirmations for depression, affirmations for stress and anxiety, 100 healing affirmations, and why all writers should try affirmation. I also share near-daily affirmations on my Instagram pages: @asthebirdfliesblog & @writenowcards.
If you'd like these affirmations in individual images you can download and print or share on social media, you can find them all as JPEG files that are free to download once you are a supported of my Ko-Fi page, which costs as little as just $1. Now, take a deep breath and dive into these positive affirmations for April. Enjoy!
