Do you wake up with morning anxiety, feelings of stress and tension even before facing your day?

Did you know that when you first rouse out of sleep, you are your most vulnerable and most susceptible to worry and anxiety and stress?

And did you know that you can heal your morning anxiety quickly and easily with the right tool?

Millions of people experience morning anxiety of some level. On the surface, it may seem harmless. But if you continue to ignore it, the anxiety will build up tension and stress in your system over the years and can adversely affect your health and mental well-being.

Plus, getting rid of this anxiety is entirely within your control so why not do the few simple things to make yourself feel better every morning to greet the day?

Those first few moments as you are slowly waking up are critical to setting the tone of your day. You can take charge and decide how you are going to feel starting with that first moment. This is so easy to do that you do not need any special preparation for it and you don’t even need to be in a particular position. In fact, you can do this even as you are still laying in bed under the covers, noodling over the dreams you just had, and slowly coming to full consciousness.

This easy and effective path to getting rid of morning anxiety is the path of daily positive affirmations. It is a tool that you can use anytime, anywhere, to redirect your negative thoughts and create space for positive thoughts in your mind.

I used to be skeptical but I can honestly say that this truly works. But it just so happens that the power of the mind and the miracle of positive thoughts has also been proven by science to improve our health, productivity, creativity, longevity, and overall state of being.

Of course, the only thing that really matters is that you – not science or I – believe that positive affirmations are going to help you. By believing alone, you have taken the first step towards healing your morning anxiety.

Positive affirmations are simple, first-person, present-tense, active statements that you repeat to yourself on a regular basis. As a result, you create the exact state of mind that you wish to be in and for most of us, that’s a positive, healthy and productive state of mind.

You can create your own affirmations from scratch, use affirmations that resonate with you or modify affirmations that you like but don’t quite feel right to you. I am sharing 10 morning affirmations here that are particularly effective in helping you address morning anxiety.

1. I am feeling healthy and strong today.
2. I am loved, loving and lovable.
3. I have the courage to make this a great day.
4. My body is healing and improving every day.
5. Everything works out for my highest good.
6. I choose to see the best side of people and circumstances.
7. I make a positive difference for someone today.
8. Everything I need comes to me at the right time.
9. My work on earth has meaning and purpose.
10. I am grateful and content with my life.

How to best use these morning affirmations:

Read over them out loud a few times, familiarize yourself with the sound of your voice as you read positive statements. Some of us are not even used to hearing ourselves talk this way.

Then choose your favorite three affirmations from the list and put them on a note card or on your phone where you can quickly access it. Put the phone or note card next to your bed. When you wake up tomorrow, grab the affirmations while still in bed and say each one out loud to yourself three times.

Repeat this for a week. If you want to extend the experience, pick five to seven affirmations and repeat each three times every morning. You can also swap the first three for a set of new three after a week.

When you do this, your mind starts to get used to hearing a positive inner dialogue. As a result, you begin to push out the negative dialogue to the background and change the flow of your thoughts.

Then you create the habit of speaking affirmative thoughts and creating positive self-talk and soon, you will memorize the affirmations and know them by heart. Here’s a free audio sample for morning affirmations to get you started.

Over time, this is your ultimate tool to push anxiety out of the way, as you do the sheets to get out of bed, and wake up to face your day with positive thoughts and productive mind.

What do you think? Are you ready to let positive affirmations bring you peace of mind?
