Anxiety attacks are, at times, inevitable. We don’t always have control over our environments, emotions, or triggers. It’s completely normal to feel helpless when experiencing an episode of intense anxiety, especially if you’re not even one hundred percent sure about what’s happening.

Fighting Anxiety

Alleviating chronic anxiety is best done within the care and supervision of a mental healthcare professional. However, a professional isn’t always available. For times where you need to bring yourself to a place of manageability, affirmations can be the way.

Spread the word, save it, but most importantly—consider it. You are in control. You have the power and benefits of affirmation at your fingertips. Scroll on.

Your Anxiety Doesn't Define You

Have peace of mind in reminding yourself that your triggers could have been learned. They are likely a product of your environment or skills for survival. Understand that you have power over them and that they do not define you.

You Have Control, Not Your Triggers

The power to overcome anxiety exists in the mental fitness and habitual ability to do so. Remind yourself of your fierce capability to override what is disrupting you.

Free Yourself from Anxiety

Trade the desire to control your emotions for the power of processing. Do not be afraid to face your anxiety head-on instead of attempting to tiptoe around it. Release your grip on what you think you can control and understand that your power resides instead in your ability to cope with a healthy and open mind.

You're a Work In Progress

View yourself as an imperfectly perfect work in progress. Do not hold yourself to unattainable expectations and then beat yourself up when you cannot meet them. Recognize your humanity, and use it to empower yourself and zap your anxiety.

Because You're Not Broken

Remember that anxiety is often a product of trauma. Do not self-punish or guilt for feeling out of sorts and anxious. Remind yourself that healing is your salvation and that the first step is to be calm.
