Mantras to Calm Anxiety

Feeling anxious lately? You aren’t alone. While anxiety was already a serious public health concern prior to March 2020, the coronavirus pandemic has made it a regular topic of conversation for most people. In fact, a recent study reports that at least 19% of people say that the pandemic has had a negative impact on their mental health. Meanwhile, most mental health professionals are significantly worried about surges in mental health conditions like anxiety and depression.

When you feel anxious, it can feel impossible to simply “calm down” or switch your anxious thoughts to more positive ones. However, having a mantra, or statement you repeat, can help by giving you something to focus on as you move throughout your day.

Mantras to Get You Started

Here are just a few examples of mantras that could help fight pandemic-related anxiety. Choose one that works for you:

  • I am healthy right now.
  • This feeling of worry will not last forever.
  • I am safe and healthy here.
  • I control what I can.
  • I will be okay.
  • My family will be okay.
  • I rest in the fact that I am cared for.
  • The universe protects me.
  • Better days are ahead.
  • I will take one breath at a time.
  • I choose to find joy.
  • I breathe in gratitude.
  • My body is strong. My mind is stronger.
  • I am peaceful in the storm.
  • Breathe in, breathe out.
  • Just keep swimming.
  • I am thankful for my healthy body.

Choose a mantra that resonates with you and make it a part of your daily routine. Say it not only when you are feeling anxious, but also when you are not. Saying the same phrase over and over again can help your mind focus on something beyond your current situation, combatting future anxiety as well.
