30 Sleep Affirmations For Reducing Anxiety Each Night

What are Sleep Affirmations?

In general, affirmations are short phrases or firm statements which help better your mood and declare positive thoughts as if they are the truth. They’ll ease your mind and drown out the worry and stress. While general affirmations clear up the fog of negative thinking that prevents us from being our best selves, sleep affirmations for anxiety specifically also get you ready to sink into a restful slumber. When you repeat sleep affirmations often and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes that better your daily life.

How do Sleep Affirmations Help?

Sleep affirmations can help strengthen someone’s self-worth by boosting a positive opinion of oneself. Countering the feelings of panic, stress, and self-doubt that often accompany anxiety, sleep affirmations bring calmness, peace, and positivity.

Anxiety and stress are big reasons why so many people have trouble falling asleep. After a day of stressful work or personal conflicts, one’s mind keeps running. Anxiety is heightened. By saying and repeating sleep affirmations each night, not only will the anxiety and stress be reduced, but the cycle of low quantity and quality sleep, which also increases anxiety, begins to dwindle. It’s better all around.

Do affirmations work while you sleep? Some research shows that actually playing sleep affirmations while you sleep also benefits your subconscious. Like the pre-bedtime sleep affirmations, it takes very little setup and money to do them, so it doesn’t hurt to try!

Like anything else, however, making changes with sleep affirmations for peaceful sleep takes work and commitment. If you don’t use and say your sleep affirmations to yourself on a regular basis, it doesn’t matter how good your sleep affirmations are, they probably won’t make much of a difference to your daily life.
