Affirmations When Stressed Out
This month’s theme is Stress Management and you can get the free worksheet at AffirmationPod.com/Stress Since these are affirmations for when you're feeling stressed out, I got into them pretty quickly.
Hey reaction, it’s time to stop
Hey negative thoughts, I’m putting on the brakes
Hey anger, I hear you, and you can sit down now
The stressor ain’t going to change because I’m freaking out
Hey nervous system, I am choosing calm over stressing out right now
I don’t care what time of day it is, I am restarting my day
It’s time to reset my nervous system
I deserve better than to freak out, stress out and totally overwhelm myself
I deserve better than to give myself that
I am evolving and changing how I react
It’s incredible that I’m catching myself in this stressed out state
And I am calling on every single emotional muscle I have to pull myself into a relaxed state
I know it’s so easy to take the stressed out path
Because I’ve done that for so long
But it’s not the person I want to be today
It’s not the person I want to be now
I wanna be someone who can experience the stressor without reacting this strongly
I acknowledge there tension that is here
I acknowledge the tension in my body
I acknowledge the mental and emotional impact of what’s happening here
And I acknowledge the circumstances
I also know that self-care is a channel that I need to use right now
That I need to connect with right now
I am taking deep breaths
I am picturing my power to overcome this
I am in touch with my core
I shake out all the stressed out vibes
I feel them exiting my body now
I am not avoiding the stressor
I am controlling how I respond to the stressor
Yeah, I’m becoming someone who stays collected
And not frazzled I feel my call for tension to stand down
I feel my jaw ease I feel my shoulders relax
I feel my hands soften I steer my mind to what helps settle my body
I am doing an amazing job with this
I am strong to improve my stress management skills
I am brave to try something new here
I am clear on the direction I’m going in
I am clear on my best stress management strategies that I will choose to do and use after I listen to this
My stress management skills aren’t just ideas, they’re not just thoughts or things I’ve put on a piece of paper
I’m applying them, I’m doing them, I’m becoming them
I will now focus on what will get me through in the best way possible for me

You Are Enough
Life can get difficult. Jobs are lost, hearts are broken, plans get changed, things go wrong. We’ve all been there.
But when life gives you lemons, how do you cope? How do you navigate through grief with resilience? How do you control your emotions instead of letting them control you?
Maybe you have unhealthy coping strategies. Maybe you bury your emotions, talk down to yourself, or power through the day without allowing yourself even a moment of rest and reflection.
Sound familiar? Not anymore.
