Mantras to Repeat to Yourself When Dealing with Anxiety

By Fallon Brannon on July 13, 2021

Everybody gets nervous. In everyday life, feeling some sense of anxiousness is an accurate occurrence for the average individual. Experiencing certain levels of anxiety when completing a difficult work task or presenting a big presentation is a normal sensation. But when those feelings become too excessive and almost unbearable to control, you can easily feel like a prisoner trapped inside your own body. The intense feelings of racing thoughts, repetitive self-questioning, and limitless worrying can cause you to subconsciously doubt your self-worth and wreak absolute havoc on your mental health.

And as someone struggling with anxiety myself, I had to find calmative outlets to incorporate into my daily routine to help silence the war inside my head, such as writing down and repeating mantras. The power of telling yourself mantras not only eases your mind but can also reassure you of your humanity and keep you grounded.

1. “My strength is stronger than my anxiety.”

To help combat your anxiety, you need to train your mind to believe that you are stronger than your impulsive thoughts. Even if the statement is hard to comprehend in your current state, by saying this mantra, you are actively denouncing the fear of worry inside of you and reclaiming your power.

2. “I am in control of my emotions.”

The helpless feeling of excessive anxiousness can sometimes make us feel like we are spiraling out of control. Especially when experiencing persistent worry and distress, it becomes difficult to silence your mind and restrain your fearful emotions. This mantra is used as a reminder to remember you ARE in control of yourself, and always will be.

3. “Calm is my primary state of being.”

As a person struggling with anxiety, your body is accustomed to staying on high alert and in panic mode. Constant high levels of stress can make it extremely difficult to pace yourself and remain in a state of tranquility. But this mantra holds power with destressing and focusing on relaxation. You are subconsciously convincing yourself that calmness is the primary mental state you experience.

4. “I am at peace with myself.”

As stated before, remember you are in control of your mind, body, and emotions. Whenever an anxious thought enters your mind, say this mantra to reinforce you have the ability to calm yourself down. The state of peacefulness is accessible to you.
