Conquering Anxiety With Positive Affirmations

Updated: Aug 29


It can be difficult to do anything with your normal passion and excitement if you are feeling anxious. Anxiety can kill your motivation and control your life – if you let it.

If you have experienced an anxiety attack, you may be fearful of having another one, but living in such fear means you are in perpetual anxiety. This can happen just because you are afraid of the anxiety itself!

Those who have never experienced an anxiety attack or high levels of anxiety cannot understand how hard this cycle can be to break.

  • If you believe you have to live in a constant state of fear and anxiety, you’re wrong – you can learn how to deal with anxiety more positively.


Letting Go of the Anxiety

Worrying about the next anxiety attack or any other cause of anxiety can leave you in a constant state of fear that can and will keep you from doing the things you want or need to do. Anxiety can be crippling, but that doesn't mean that it has to be. It starts with a thought, a seed of doubt that we have planted in our minds, but it can be controlled.

It can be hard to stop the cycle once you develop the pattern of having anxiety-related feelings and anxiety attacks, but it isn’t impossible. You can overcome the cycle by using easy and convenient tools, things you can start doing right now, today.


Using Positive Affirmations to Overcome Anxiety

One way you can conquer anxiety is by using positive affirmations. These statements are a simple way to change your thought processes so you aren't always waiting for anxiety to take charge of your life.


Many people create their affirmations, while others use affirmations from websites or books. It doesn’t matter where you find the affirmations, just as long as you begin using them effectively throughout your day.

  • Choose affirmations that speak to you and help you overcome your fear and anxiety. Affirmations must focus on the present and should be about you, not anyone else.

Examples of Affirmations to Defeat Anxiety

Anxiety affirmations are simply positive statements that you can say to yourself in those moments when you start to feel anxious. You can use these at any time and for any reason to calm your nerves and bring peace of mind.


Look yourself in the eyes and tell yourself, "I can overcome my fears because I am in control," or "I no longer need to be frightened. I allow myself to receive the light of who I am.” Any statement that replaces the anxious thoughts with a positive feeling will work.

  • Start by taking a deep breath.

  • Write your affirmation in your journal at least five times

  • Stand in the mirror, look yourself in the eyes, and repeat your affirmation at least five times.

  • Say these affirmations during anxious moments as often as you need to, and continue affirming the positive thoughts until the anxious moment has passed.

I have found that I can reprogram my mind by using these affirmations and breathing exercises when I'm feeling anxious. In doing so, I'm able to think in a more positive way, and I refocus my mind away from my anxiety and fear.


I'm sure it will work for you, so give it a try! Every time you use an affirmation, you leave less and less room for the irrational fears and the anxiety that have ruled your life for far too long, and you make room for more positive and fulfilling experiences.
