Mental Health Awareness

Did you know affirmations can be a positive impact on your heatlh? 

Affirmations are short phrases that you repeat, either aloud or in your head, to affirm a positive trait or behavior about yourself. Practicing affirmations help build confidence to overcome self-doubt and negative thoughts. Seems too good to be true, however there is scientific evidence to support the health benefits of affirmations. Research show that affirmations can increase feelings of self-worth and boost confidence, making it more likely for those that practice these simple phrases more susceptible to acheiving their goals.

Girl Scouts of California's Central Coast has created a Mental Health Toolkit for every girl that joins or renews their Girl Scout Membership for 2023-2024. 

  1.  Kindness: Be Kind to yourself. Girl Scouts are taught to respect themselves and others. Sometimes we are the toughest critic of ourselves. This affirmation will help to change a negative view of oneself.
  2. Self-Care: Grateful for the body you are born in! A stronger sense of self can help you adapt when faced with adversity. Take care of your body and treat it with respect.
  3. Sisterhood: Girl Scouts encourage friends and girl bonding while having fun! Joining a program with the same age group helps girls have a stronger connection reducing the fear of being alone. This positive experience boosts a girls self-esteem.
  4. Physical Movement: Your body is a super computer that is strong and powerful. Get moving even if its just a game of tag or walking a nature trail. Increasing movement increases endophines in the brain resulting in a positive boost.
  5. Stress Free: Creating a fun positive space environment to decrease levels of health-deteriorating stress on the body.
  6. Get Involved: Girl Scouts promise to help people at all times. Helping others not only creates a positive benefit for the recipient, it also creates a higher sense of purpose for the philanthropist. 
  7. Healthy Eating: By choosing to fill your body with healthier choices that are less self-sabatoging to the body. Making small steps and writing down how certain foods can fuel your adventure will encourage you to make a better descision. 
  8. Uniqueness: Happy to be me! You are one in a million! Celebrate what makes you special and remind yourself there is no one quite like you! 
  9. Mindfulness: Mindfullness is paying attention to the present moment in turn giving more insight into emotions, boosting attention, and concentration. Insead of being overwhelmed by your feelings, you can manage them through breathing techniques, stretching, and meditation.
  10. Setting Goals: Setting small goals or large ones and accomplishing them builds confidence! Plan small goals that are obtainable and build off of them for the larger goals. 
  11. Outdoors: A connection to nature can benefit wellbeing. Taking a break to enjoy the fresh air, sunshine ,or the rain can create a positive mood boost. 
  12. Education: Learning, even learning through our mistakes makes us stronger academicly. Being proud of your accomplishments and having an open mind to learn more gives you the confidence to further your career

Benefits of Positive Affirmations:

  • Higher self-esteem in young people and adults (2, 3).
  • Increase in physical activity- Self-affirmations have been used in interventions that led people to exercise more (4).
  • Decreased levels of health-deteriorating stress (5).
  • Greater academic achievement- One study found that self-affirmations were linked to higher academic achievement in college students who felt left out at school (6).
  • Greater resiliency- A stronger sense of self can help us better adapt when faced with adversity, meaning you are more likely to overcome a challenge when you believe in yourself (7). Want a further dive into resilency see our Ready Resilient Strong Patch Journey
  • Increased motivation to change- A research study found that participants who practiced affirmations were less likely to dismiss harmful health messages and were more likely to change for the better (8). So while affirmations don’t create change, they can help motivate us to make healthy choices.
  • Repeating your affirmation up to 3 to 5 times per day to help reinforce positive thinking (9).

Step by Step Renewal Instructions:

Trouble Logging In? See Here

The Q: Why isn’t my username working?
A: Your username is typically your email address. If you have more than one email address, try each. You can also use the “Forgot Your Password?” link to send a reset email to your email address. If you’re still having trouble, contact your council’s Customer Care team.

Q: Why aren’t I getting the password reset emails?
A: The password reset emails come from, so please make sure it’s added to your safe senders list. If you requested the reset email before marking our email address as safe, check your spam folder. If you’re still not receiving the email, contact your council’s Customer Care team to verify that your username/email address is correct.

Q: How do I reset my password when I no longer have access to the email address associated with my account?
A: Your council’s Customer Care team can easily change your username/email address without requiring you to recreate your account.

Q: Why can’t I see my family when I log in?
A: There are a couple reasons this could happen:

  • Another adult family member may be listed as the preferred contact on the account. That person must log in to renew. Contact your council’s Customer Care team if you’d like to be listed as your household’s preferred contact.
  • You may have a second or duplicate account with a different email address. Try a different username. If that works, be sure to contact your council’s Customer Care team to merge the two accounts into one.

Q: Why can’t I see my troop(s) when I log in?
A: There are several reasons this could happen:

  • Troops are listed on a separate tab from your family. If you have more than one troop, look for the pull-down menu to change between them.
  • Check your member profile to make sure you’re listed as a volunteer in the troop.
  • Not all troop volunteers can access the troop tab. Check with your council to see which volunteer roles they allow to access the tab.
  • If your background check has expired, you may lose access until it is up-to-date.

The Girl Scout's of California's Central Coast Customer Care team can provide additional support. Contact or call 800-822-2427.
