Each day is a new day. It can bring joy and laughter, or tears and distress.
We constantly cycle through various emotions.
Often these are natural human responses, but they can develop into more serious issues.
Anxiety is the perfect example.
That’s why I have written this post to discuss positive affirmations for anxiety.
What is Anxiety?
When we feel worried or scared, we feel anxious, especially about what we perceive is about to happen, either now or in the future.
We all feel anxious at times, especially in stressful situations or times of change.
The day I started my new job, I was anxious beyond belief.
The anticipation of whether I would be good enough and fit in with my new colleagues.
What would they think of me? What if my old job was better? Would I get there on time?
This feeling of threat causing a physical reaction. A release of hormones (adrenaline and cortisol), when the danger is over more hormones are released to disengage that state of alert.
Anxiety is normal.
It is the “fight or flight” reaction that kicks in without thinking. Part of the issue is that this mechanism can initiate in normal situations with no immediate danger.
Anxiety can go beyond this and become an overwhelming disorder.
A mental health issue that impacts your ability to live a normal life. If this is you, then please reach out to qualified people that can help you.
Can Affirmations Help With Anxiety?
Affirmations can help people cope with anxiety in several ways.
- Positively reinforcing change, in areas of your life that you focus on.
- Acting as a distraction to the stresses that trigger anxiety. Calming the overactive thought processes.
- Refocuses your energy on positivity and calmness
- Allows you to regain control of your emotional state and focus your mind
Affirmations can help us cope with anxiety, but it isn’t an overnight success story. You must be willing to open your mind and learn to adapt routines of using them.
What Are Affirmations?
Affirmations are words, or simple statements that we repeatedly verbalize in order to retrain our subconscious.
We repeat, out loud, positive phrases until we begin to rewire our brains. Ultimately then changing our behaviour and actions, and manifest self improvement.
This post is about sharing affirmations that help ease the pressures of anxiety and restore control and calm.
What Are The Advantages of Affirmations?
By repeatedly stating positive statements we can reinforce our belief system and bring about changes to any part of our life that requires it.
It is a life changing process that enables us to become consciously aware of our thoughts, so we can eliminate the negative ones and reinforce the positive beliefs.
Not only are affirmations a source of motivation they keep our minds focused on goals.
If you want to be more successful in your career then using the right positive affirmations can achieve this by subconsciously redesigning your beliefs.
Affirmations have the potential to positively change the way you think and act.
2. Start the day by reading out your list of positive affirmations – this allows your mind to preframe the day with positivity.
3. Repeat your affirmations at the end of the day before sleep, so they are one of your final thoughts and reflections.
4. Repeat each positive statement at least 3 times.
5. Speak slowly and clearly, and with conviction.
6. Breath deeply and try and retain an air of calmness.
