Top 40 Positive Affirmations to Reduce Coronavirus Stress

Positive affirmations, if repeated frequently, can make a big difference in your life, especially during uncertain and tough times

If you are suffering from stress due to the current Covid-19 situation around the world, it’s important to accept your feelings and realise that most people around you are also experiencing the same feelings of anxiety and distress due to the fear of illness and financial turmoil. However, this does not mean that you cannot manage your emotions and need to stay stressed all the time. One of the ways to manage stress is to read positive affirmations on a daily basis, ideally every morning when you wake up and ideally three to five times during the day.
