Using affirmations must be based on the moment, and it is best to repeat them to yourself out loud or write them down. Make them positive and reflective, and describe the way you want to feel. For example:
“I am not controlled by anxiety.”
“I am safe.”
“I am protected.”
“I feel calm and peaceful.”
“I enjoy my life.”
“I find life’s challenges exhilerating.”
Affirmations may be based on a behavior, a thought pattern, or a more basic principle. Affirmations are recommended when you’re feeling fearful or anxious, but many people find that starting your day with positive affirmations as a habit can be very beneficial.
