Stress Relief Tool – Affirmations

Consider using this tool right before you have a stressful event such as an important meeting, presentation or conversation.

Affirmations are simple statements designed to flood your brain with positive self-talk to overcome your inner critic and get you into a more upbeat, stress-free state. To employ this tip, all you need to do is read one you like over and over again; just Google “positive affirmations” to find a list that appeals to you.

Pick one or more and copy them into your phone for easy reference.

Another option is to use a mobile phone app, like Think Up to help you overcome challenges. You record affirmations in your own voice and listen to them just like you would your favorite music.

To improve the effectiveness, consider speaking your affirmation out loud as you look at yourself in the mirror. Regardless of how you use them, affirmations can be helpful to use right before you have a stressful event such as an important meeting, presentation or conversation.
