With all the things happening all over the world, now more than ever, we could all use a dose of positive thinking. Not everyone has the same reaction to anxious and stressful times.
Some people try to embrace each day and start their day with a positive thought while some worry and become so stressed out, that it affects their emotional health.
Worrying will increase your anxiety and stress. It is also unhealthy to worry too much which is why you have to train your mind in handling stress and anxiety well. There are many ways on how to do this and one of these is by using positive affirmations for anxiety.
What are Positive Affirmations?
A great way to start your day is by repeating positive affirmations to yourself.
Positive affirmations are positive statements that are declared to be true. They are said in the present tense because by doing so, you embed these statements in your mind making you feel more empowered. You say them again and again until they become a part of your thinking.
When you say your goals and your desired feelings out loud, it’s similar to speaking your ideal future into existence.
Affirmations are an integral part of the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction states that you attract what you send out because the positive energy and vibration you send out into the world will always be attracted back to you.
Your thought affects your attitudes, behaviors, and actions, so by repeating positive affirmations and thinking positive thoughts, it empowers you to manifest your desires into reality.
The Difference Between Anxiety and Stress
We all experience stress and anxiety at one time or another. But the question is, are they the same thing or are they two different emotional reactions?
Stress is an emotional response to a threat from an external factor. Anxiety on the other hand is the response to stress. When you have anxiety, you are worried and nervous, sometimes to the point that your anxiety becomes uncontrollable and starts to affect your everyday life.
Anxiety, when left uncontrolled, can severely affect your health and wellbeing. I will show you how to use positive affirmations to manage your anxiety.
