30 Positive Affirmations to Get Through Coronavirus Anxiety and Other Tough Times
Affirmations can lift you up, encourage you, and strengthen you to get through tough times including this Coronavirus challenge.
"Just one small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day." — Dalai Lama
I've listed over 30 possible affirmations. Mix them together or change them to what works for you. Experiment with some for a while and alter them if you think something might work better for you.
Affirmations usually start with "I", but for some affirmations, you can change “I” to “We” if it fits and helps.
Say affirmations to yourself or out loud throughout your day. Write or type them out and put them in places that will remind you to say and think them. (ie your pocket, mirror, fridge door, in your phone . . .).
I'd love to know which ones are your favorites, or other affirmations that you are finding helpful. Scroll down to the comments section and let us know.
