17 Positive Affirmations To Help Reduce Anxiety

Affirmations, Anxiety | 0 comments

Have you ever felt powerless and anxious when faced with difficult life situations?

Become powerful again and allow affirmations to give you inner strength, confidence and clarity.

By repeating affirmations on a regular basis, you can reclaim your power and stave off anxiety.

How to use affirmations

  • Print off this post or jot down some affirmations relevant to your own personal situation
  • Remember, affirmations are about the desired feeling having already happened “I AM in control” – always use the present tense
  • It’s important to use the same language you would usually use; remove words you don’t normally say and add in words you say naturally in conversation
  • Find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed
  • Make the quite space ‘safe’. Burn essential oils, light some candles, dim the lights; create a zen den for yourself to practice
  • Standing or sitting, and starting with your eyes open, read the affirmations out loud (whisper to start with if you’re feeling a bit awkward)
  • Speak with conviction and meaning
  • Imagine each affirmation as if it were true – really mean it!
  • Ensure your body language/stance matches your words
  • When you can remember your affirmations, you can lose the notes and repeat from memory
  • Keep repeating your affirmations until you feel calmer and your anxiety has subsided

You might feel a little awkward or silly at first, so keep practicing until you feel more comfortable and confident.
