Your thoughts truly become things. They become the same energy that control your actions and the events in your life.
Even though we don’t have full control over EVERYTHING happening in our lives, we do have a choice in how we deal with them. We have the power to choose new thoughts, new perspectives and create new things to happen in our favor – despite what we’ve been dealt.
That is the true power we hold as human beings. However, it all starts with a positive mindset. Now, how do you obtain and keep a positive mindset?
You do this by retraining your brain and filling it with as many positive thoughts as possible, as consistently as possible. You do that by feeding your brain with positive words, known as positive affirmations.
You can remind yourself of these helpful positive affirmations to calm anxiety by doing many things. First, take a pen and paper and write them down.
Secondly, establish a routine in which you take some time out of every day and rewrite the same affirmations. That way, your mind can become accustomed to feeding itself these thoughts and phrases. Hence, retraining your brain.
You can also save these positive affirmations for anxiety as the home screen on your phone, your computer, or even your tablets – whichever device you see the most.
Lastly, you can try to face yourself in the mirror each night before you go to bed and slowly recite these positive affirmations to calm your anxiety. You may find it helpful to face yourself and let yourself know – face to face – that you’re totally okay.
So get your pen and paper ready. Here are 27 positive affirmations for anxiety to help calm your mind and change your thoughts from anxious to relaxed.
You should also note that you have to actually BELIEVE these things BEFORE you write them, or recite them out loud. You may feel silly at first, but that’s okay too. This entire process may take a while, but it will help in the long run. At least now, when you feel a bit overwhelmed, or when anxiety has taken over – you’ll know exactly what to do and what to say to yourself.
Rest assured, that when you get used to thinking these affirmations, your life will start to change for the better. You’ll start to feel more in control of what’s happening around you. You’ll become more aware.
Trust the process. Believe in yourself and take care of you. You’ve got this!
