31 Affirmations For Stress Relief
31 Affirmations For Stress Relief:
Life ebbs and flows. We go through seasons of good times, seasons of bad times, and maybe my least favorite, the rollercoaster seasons.
I’ve always wondered if those pockets of time characterized by extreme ups and downs, the “rollercoaster seasons”, are really just a tough season bundled with a more positive outlook on life?
Looking back over the last 10 years I see that sometimes, the good times are given to us freely, a gift, and other times, I’ve had to go out and make them happen. The same can be said for peace.
My fiancé and I are in one of the most exciting (and intense!) (and stressful 😩) seasons of our lives, so today, I’m targeting stress specifically.
What do you do when you’re feeling stressed or overwhelmed?
Do you have a go-to routine for a healthy way to reset and recharge regardless of when and where you are?
Our answers to these questions are clear indicators of what we can do to help manage the stress in our lives and more importantly channel it positive healthy way.
My go-to is a combination of prayer, affirmations, meditation, and breathing exercises. A lot of times I have to challenge myself to find a way to not only take charge of the situation, mentally, but remind myself that there’s good stress and bad stress and sometimes even do a “gratitude check” and remind myself that it’s a blessing to even be in position to stress over the things I’m stressed out about in the first place.
We’re going to start off by clearing our minds and thoughts of anything holding us back from getting centered, or recentered, today.
Anything that didn’t get done yesterday or needs to get done today can wait for now.
Any pressing issues or feeling of unease and unrest must subside.
Close your eyes. Take a deep breath in. Relax any tension in your jaw, shoulders, and body. Breathe out. Feel any tension melt away.
In this moment, take captive the two things that you’re most stressed out about.
Breathe in the good. Envision the best possible outcome for those things. -Beyond your comfort zone. -Beyond what you think is possible. See only the best of the best in this vision of your life.
Breathe out the bad. Envision any roadblock or hindrance simply crumbling and floating away.
Lord I trust you. I trust you with even the most hidden parts of my life. The most stressful parts of my life. The parts I want to control, the parts where I think I know best, the parts that are tied to anything that’s not of you. I release it all today.
