10 Affirmations to Ease Anxiety


If you struggle with anxiety, you know first-hand how panic, worry, and fear can significantly limit your life and take an emotional toll.

For some, anxiety can seemingly come from nowhere and take you by storm in the form of a panic attack.  For others, anxiety feels more like an unwelcome friend that accompanies you everywhere you go with a continuous undercurrent of mild fear or a sense of being ill at ease.  The bottom line is that anxiety is not easy to live with and can affect all aspects of your life, including your emotional and psychological well-being, relationships, and overall health.

Affirmations are an excellent tool for working through anxiety.   Affirmations are positive statements that can be used to help you manage your thoughts and negative self-talk that, often times, create and perpetuate anxiety.

Below are 10 affirmations that can be used when you are feeling anxious.  If you want to be proactive in keeping anxiety at bay, you can use these affirmations even when you are not anxious to evoke a sense of calm.

Simply read aloud or meditate on the following statements.

  1. I am safe and secure.
  2. This is anxiety and will soon pass.
  3. This feels uncomfortable, but I am not in danger.
  4. I breathe in calm and breathe out fear.
  5. I have what I need to stay calm.
  6. I have peace.
  7. I am well, healthy, and strong,
  8. I am supported and loved.
  9. My mind is calm and my body relaxed.
  10. I am stronger than these feelings.

Anxiety is uncomfortable, but it does not have to limit your life.  Through awareness and management of your thoughts and self-talk, you can overcome anxiety.  Affirmations are one tool to help you do just that.
