AFFIRMATIONS TO HELP YOU CALM DOWN AND GO TO SLEEP.

Affirmations are simple statements you say to yourself that help to insert positive ideas and suggestions into your brain where they can be surprisingly effective.  It is a form of constructive self-talk. The key to effectiveness is in frequent repeating of these positive statements - preferably outloud - softly - to yourself - so that your system can absorb these thoughts and eventually come to act on them - automatically.

These affirmations will work best after you've done some of the work we suggest in our segments on emotional upset - work like writing out your problems and then creating a plan of action to deal with each. If you'd like to visit those segments first, go to the navigation bars to the left.

TO BEGIN THE AFFIRMATIONS

To start, you're going to take a few deep breaths to help you relax and be receptive to the benefit of the affirmations. Here we go.

1. Take a good deep breath through your nose - nice and deep - deeper than that - and gently blow the air out your pursed lips - very slowly - long and drawn out - almost like whistling.

2. Then do it again - take a deep long breath through your nose - deeper - feel your lower chest swell up with air - and slowly let the air out your pursed lips...

3. And do it one more time - a good deep breath - and let it out slowly through your lips.

Now feel yourself relaxing as you get ready to speak Affirmations. It's important to relax now and let the Affirmations do their work for you.

Please choose from these 4 options:

Affirmations to calm you down from upset, stress, frustration and anger.

Affirmations to help you cope with depression or negative thinking.

Affirmations to calm you down from over-excitement and overstimulation.

Affirmations to help with grieving.

AFFIRMATIONS TO CALM YOU DOWN FROM UPSET, STRESS, FRUSTRATION AND ANGER:

Read each statement outloud - softly - to yourself. Saying it out loud - to yourself - makes it most effective.

I take good care of myself;

I am calming myself;

I am soothing myself;

I am calming and soothing myself so that I may fall into a deep and satisfying sleep;

I am prepared to deal with my problems in the morning;

So, I can now allow myself to fall into a deep and satisfying sleep;

I now release all my upset;

I now release all feelings of stress;
