Affirmations are powerful statements that you tell yourself in order to make yourself believe they are true. These can be extremely beneficial to calm an anxious mind. The goal of these affirmations is to undo the negative beliefs that you have about yourself. Whenever you start to feel overwhelmed, use this 32 affirmations for anxiety to make you feel more grounded and at peace.

How to Use Affirmations

I recommend saying your affirmations out loud, because the effect they have will be much greater than if you just say them in your head. You can chant them during meditation or say them to yourself in a mirror. If you make it a habit to repeat your affirmations daily, you will feel a difference in your mindset which, in turn, will reduce your overall anxiety.
