Affirmations for Emotional Overwhelm

Did you know that research has shown that positive self-talk, such as affirmations, can activate the relaxation response and help to reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression? This may be because affirmations help to shift our attention away from negative or distressing thoughts and towards more positive and empowering ones. By focusing on affirmations that help us feel more in control and capable, we can reduce feelings of helplessness and overwhelm, which can in turn help to calm the nervous system.

Here are 7 affirmations to help prevent and cope with emotional overwhelm: 

      1. "I trust my body's wisdom and I am grateful for the messages it sends me." This affirmation reinforces the idea that your body is a trustworthy guide and reminds you to appreciate how it communicates with you.

      2. "I am worthy of rest and relaxation, and my body deserves to be nourished and cared for." This affirmation reinforces the idea that rest is not an indulgence, it is an essential component of self-care. It reminds you that your body deserves to be treated with kindness and respect.

      3. "I am grateful for the peace that surrounds me, even in moments of chaos." This affirmation encourages you to focus on the positive aspects of your life and recognize the peace within and around you.

      4. "I trust that everything is working out for my highest good, even if I can't see it yet." This affirmation can be helpful if you tend to worry about the future or feel uncertain about your path in life. It reminds you that everything is unfolding as it should, even if it doesn't always feel that way.

      5. "I trust my instincts, intuition, and ancestors to guide me in the right direction." This affirmation encourages you to listen to your inner voice and trust your gut feelings, rather than getting caught up in overthinking.

      6. "I am confident in my ability to create a better future for myself, and I trust that the universe is supporting me in my efforts." This affirmation cultivates a sense of confidence and trust in yourself and the universe, reminding you that you can create the future you desire.

      7. "I am connected to the divine energy within and around me, and I trust in my ability to manifest my deepest desires."This affirmation reminds you that you are connected to a greater spiritual energy that can support and guide you on your journey.

I hope you find these affirmations helpful, uplifting, and empowering! Our mind is a beautiful muscle, so let's continue to utilize it in our healing journey in becoming our best selves. 

Until next time -
