25 Affirmations to Calm down

Try our 25 favorite affirmations to calm down

The word mantra, often interchanged with affirmation, is derived from two Sanskrit words – manas (mind) and tra (tools). Its literal translation is “a tool for the mind”. It was designed, thousands of years ago, to help practitioners access their own higher consciousness. The repetition or chanting of a mantra encourages the mind to enter a more focused, meditative state.

A mantra is said to be fueled by the act of consistent repetition, with consistency being the key. Used once, a mantra can leave us feeling focused, calm and present. But, by repeating a thought, phrase or idea, it starts to gain strength and energy within our psyche, helping us anchor to the present moment and our breath.

We’ve put together 25 mantras or affirmations to help calm you down and come into the present moment. Pick a new one each day or stick with one that feels good for a week or so. You can say them out loud, write them down, save them to your phone screen, or post them on a sticky note somewhere you will see them in times of stress.
