Affirmation Outlook: In general, the greatest benefit of Affirmations is to use them in the mornings. Although this maybe true, if you are not a morning person you are more than welcome to use them in the afternoon or in the evening hours of the day. Incorporate morning affirmations into your daily routines. We are aiming to remain positive throughout the entire day.

It should always be stated as if the desired outcome either has already occurred or is in the process of occurring, not as something that will come about in the future.
