53 Affirmations For When You Are Stressed Out

Stressing out happens to all of us. But the difference between letting the stress ruin our days or getting past the stress to work on having the best possible day is in your response to the stress. And one of the best stress responses is to say affirmations to help you manage the stress. Which is why I am sharing these 53 affirmations for when you are stressed out!

Before we get into these affirmations I do want to quickly touch on these tips for how to start doing regular affirmations to help your mental wellbeing.

How to start doing regular affirmations:

I recommend saving this post and slowly adding affirmations to your day. Especially if you currently do not do daily affirmations. 

By gradually adding them you will ensure that you are really focusing on each as you add them. That way you can make sure you are committing the mental energy necessary to help the affirmations positively impact your mindset. 

Plus it can be overwhelming to start implementing a lot of affirmations at once. So start with 2-4 for the first month or so and then you can start adding more in as you go.

As for picking which affirmations to start with I recommend going through the whole list and picking the ones that stand out to you. The ones that really jump off the page and that resonate with you. 

If need be close out of the page and think about which ones you remember. Chances are those are the affirmations that really stuck with you. So start with those to begin with. 

I also recommend getting some cute sticky notes (like these) and put the affirmations you choose somewhere visible. Such as around your mirror or inside your closet door. The closet door is a great option if you live with others and don’t want your affirmations to be in a public area.

Now that we have talked about how to add affirmations for your day let’s jump into these affirmations for when you are stressed out!
