Try repeating these affirmations, designed to help you soothe your mind and develop a sense of calm

It can be difficult to find moments of calm and serenity when we’re going about our busy lives. Our heads may be full of mental to-do lists that we must keep ticking off, or the demands that others make of us could weigh heavy on our minds.

Affirmations are short, simple phrases that we repeat to ourselves, to give ourselves a message or to confirm something that, deep down, we know to be true. And when it comes to affirmations for creating calm, repeating your mantras can have a really grounding effect, putting the problems at hand into perspective and reminding you of your values and priorities.
