Affirmations When Stressed Out

This month’s theme is Stress Management and you can get the free worksheet at

Since these are affirmations for when you're feeling stressed out, I got into them pretty quickly.


Hey reaction, it’s time to stop

Hey negative thoughts, I’m putting on the brakes

Hey anger, I hear you, and you can sit down now

The stressor ain’t going to change because I’m freaking out

Hey nervous system, I am choosing calm over stressing out right now

I don’t care what time of day it is, I am restarting my day

It’s time to reset my nervous system

I deserve better than to freak out, stress out and totally overwhelm myself

I deserve better than to give myself that

I am evolving and changing how I react

It’s incredible that I’m catching myself in this stressed out state

And I am calling on every single emotional muscle I have to pull myself into a relaxed state

I know it’s so easy to take the stressed out path

Because I’ve done that for so long

But it’s not the person I want to be today

It’s not the person I want to be now

I wanna be someone who can experience the stressor without reacting this strongly 

I acknowledge there tension that is here

I acknowledge the tension in my body

I acknowledge the mental and emotional impact of what’s happening here

And I acknowledge the circumstances

I also know that self-care is a channel that I need to use right now

That I need to connect with right now

I am taking deep breaths

I am picturing my power to overcome this

I am in touch with my core

I shake out all the stressed out vibes

I feel them exiting my body now

I am not avoiding the stressor

I am controlling how I respond to the stressor

Yeah, I’m becoming someone who stays collected

And not frazzled

I feel my call for tension to stand down

I feel my jaw ease

I feel my shoulders relax

I feel my hands soften

I steer my mind to what helps settle my body

I am doing an amazing job with this

I am strong to improve my stress management skills

I am brave to try something new here

I am clear on the direction I’m going in

I am clear on my best stress management strategies that I will choose to do and use after I listen to this

My stress management skills aren’t just ideas, they’re not just thoughts or things I’ve put on a piece of paper

I’m applying them, I’m doing them, I’m becoming them

I will now focus on what will get me through in the best way possible for me
