Affirmations for Difficult Times
Tension is a part of everyday life. Almost everyone has feelings of dread, anxiety, or paranoia at some point in their life. Exercise or a hot bath may release physical tension, and concentrating on good thoughts and sensations are two more effective ways to cope with stress.
Affirmations are most powerful when they are both truthful and useful. It’s hard to accept that certain affirmations are accurate since they are so tacky and silly (like, I am full of peace and joy). Is it realistic or practical to convince yourself that you’re filled with happiness when you’re really filled with anxiety and stress? Probably not. Instead of focusing on what’s happening, consider what you’d want to think, feel, and do in response to the present situation.
Here are some affirmations to assist you in dealing with stress and uncertainty. Truth, right, and usefulness are all subjective concepts with many different interpretations. Use these ideas as a starting point to create your own affirmations or mantras.
how you might tailor your thankfulness or coping skills.

How to get the most out of them
The more often we repeat an affirmation, the more powerful it becomes. Put them down on paper and have it with you at all times, whether it be in your phone or wallet. We often forget things when we’re under a lot of stress, so having a list of affirmations handy might help.
The majority of individuals prefer to repeat their affirmations multiple times a day, either by reading them quietly, out loud, or writing them down in a diary or notepad. Affirmations should be read or written at the same time each day to establish a habit (first thing in the morning and before bed work well). As a result, the good ideas and sentiments that you’re aiming to cultivate will be reinforced.
These affirmations may also be used as starting points for creative writing. Think about each assertion and see what ideas and sensations come to mind.
