Affirmation: I can learn the triggers of my stress and target them.
I am proactive about my peace of mind. Peace does not come to me accidentally. I seek it.
Each and every day, I take a mental inventory of how I feel. I identify the things that caused me stress and the things that brought me joy and I am in constant pursuit of my true happiness.
Self-reflection on a regular basis helps me become aware of the things that cause me stress. I can make plans to protect myself against these things in the future and work to avoid them altogether.
I know what makes me feel stressed and I know how to counter those anxious thoughts.
I am in tune with my body and my mind.
My body sends me physical signals that I can identify as cues when stress begins to overwhelm me and I choose to obey these cues.
To reduce my stress, I plan ahead in order to stay organized. I complete my work early so that I can be relaxed as deadlines approach.
I am not alone in this life and so I allow myself to trust others and ask for help when I need it most. That is why I take on the appropriate amount of responsibility that I can handle and I either postpone or delegate anything above that.
I have the courage to walk away from situations that cause me stress.
I am guilt-free because I choose to sow peace over conflict, and I understand that peace comes from within.
And, I choose to let that internal peace radiate from within me!
