Positivity goes a long way in helping you to build a happier life. But when dark clouds roll in, it can be tough to remember that the sun is still back there, shining away. That's where affirmations come in; an affirmation is a statement you say to yourself in order to rewire your thoughts.

Much like exercise, the repetition of positive affirmations can raise your levels of feel-good hormones and completely change your mood. Below, Julie Montagu-the Flexi Foodie and a yoga instructor in the U.K.-shares four of her favorite positive affirmations. Let's go.

4 Positive Affirmations for Confidence, Health and Happiness

1. Positive energy surges through me and drives me to be the best I can be.

2. I am blessed with abundance and bursting with gratitude for all that I have.

3. There is no obstacle too large to overcome and I have the tools I need to always move forward.

4. I am a confident, self-reliant, and purposeful person with much to offer to the world.

Awe Bella, don't sweat the world. I too found that if this was worded differently towards others, such as ourselves, it may have worked. You know the lonely (even in a crowd), bitter (always a reason NOT to do something fun and even when it is it really isn't), cynical (even though we have friends) ones. During times of funk for me I can find thanks in a higher power for letting me be here. See or listing to others that have or are worse off than myself really helps. I always pittied myself with the way my mother raised my 4 sisters and me, after the death of my father on Christmas day, when i was very young. Till I heard the story and read the book of 'A Boy Called IT'. So weather you feel fake and hate yourself. Know that there are people out there that are worse off. Smile and knock em' down
