Do you struggle to feel at peace? You wouldn’t be alone, as it’s harder than ever to achieve inner peace, mindfulness, and mental clarity in a world ever-present with distractions, responsibilities, and social pressures.
Thankfully, affirmations are short lines of positive self pep talk that you can use for strength, support, and comfort – with the power to transform your thinking the more they are repeated.
Below, we’ve listed 30 affirmations for peace that you need today. No matter whether you’re seeking inner peace, mindfulness, or mental focus, the following peace affirmations will help.
1. I Control My Thoughts
We forget that we are in control of our thoughts. We think automatically, but it’s ultimately up to us to accept our thoughts as true or not. This affirmation is a simple but powerful reminder that you are always in control.
2. I Let Go Of The Past
Too often our present state of peace is affected by thoughts of the past: past mistakes, past rejections, and things we wish we could change. It’s important to recognize that the past is done and that you’ve learned from it, and this affirmation is a reminder of that.
3. I Don’t Need to Control the Future
Like the past, we tend to let current peace get affected by what we desire of the future or fear about the future. Using this affirmation, learn to let go of what the future may or may not hold.
4. I Feel Light And Calm
Sometimes we feel heavier when burdened by thoughts of stress, anxiety, and doubt. This affirmation is therefore a simple but effective mantra to repeat to counteract heavy feelings and thoughts.
5. I Am Exactly Where I Need To Be
It’s easy to feel restless and not at peace when you constantly doubt your achievements and how far you’ve come in life. It’s important to remember that everyone’s journey in life is unique, so you can use this affirmation as a source of comfort and reassurance.
6. I Don’t Have Any Problems
Problems are only problems if they can’t be solved. Most problems are also temporary, or smaller than we actually think they are. This affirmation is therefore a simple but empowering line that you can repeat when you are feeling overwhelmed by problems.
7. I Am Not Bothered By The Opinions Of Others
Peace is impossible to achieve if we constantly let the opinions or judgment of others affect how we feel. Most times what we also think others think of us is imaginary. If you always worry about being judged, this affirmation is for you.
8. I Don’t Need To React To Anything
When faced with problems or conflict, our peace is largely affected by how we react. It’s more than possible to choose how you react, however, and by reacting optimistically—or not at all—you can maintain your peace, which this affirmation is a reminder of.
9. I Choose To Be Peaceful And Calm
Despite not realizing it, it’s possible to choose how we think and feel. We are in charge of our minds, after all, so why not choose to be peaceful and calm? This affirmation can remind you of that and also encourage inner peace when you need it.
10. It’s OK To Make Mistakes
We can feel restless, anxious, and nervous due to an upcoming challenge that might result in making mistakes. Despite that, mistakes present valuable life lessons and the means to improve, so this affirmation is a great reminder to not fear mistakes.
11. I See Positivity All Around Me
Positivity mostly comes from within, and that includes how you choose to perceive others, your life, and the world around you. This positive daily affirmation can therefore offer comfort, reassurance, and optimism that can change your perception.
12. I Am At Peace With Who I Am
It’s easy to not feel at peace when we are not satisfied with who we are. But the fact is that inner peace is possible no matter who you are and who you want to be in life. Use this empowering affirmation if you constantly find yourself unsatisfied.
13. No One Can Disrupt My Peace
It goes without saying that others can easily disrupt our peace – even strangers. But how we choose to react and feel is ultimately what determines our inner peace. Remind yourself of that by remembering this simple but liberating affirmation.
14. I’m Not Afraid Of Anything
Life’s challenges should be exciting and empowering, especially for the fact that they can provide life lessons, new experiences, and more possibilities. Remembering and repeating this affirmation can therefore help to reduce fear and encourage excitement.
15. I Love My Journey
Too often we seek happiness in the destination while forgetting to enjoy the journey. It’s important to enjoy the process as much as the end result, so this affirmation is important if you always think more about the future than the present.
16. I Forgive And Move On
Peace can’t be achieved if you are holding a grudge. No matter how big or small the conflict is, it’s healthy to forgive as soon as possible and move on if necessary. This affirmation can help you if you struggle to forgive people and move on.
17. I’m Supported And Loved
Sometimes finding inner peace and comfort is as simple as remembering that you are loved and supported by your friends and family. This often gets overlooked, so use this affirmation as a comforting reminder.
18. It’s Pointless To Compare Myself
Inner peace and happiness can be disturbed by jealousy, envy, or competition. Everyone is 100% unique, however, which makes it pointless to compare one person to another. This affirmation is helpful if you often compare yourself to others.
19. Stress Is Useless To Me
Feeling stressed offers no benefits whatsoever. And since we are ultimately in control of what we choose to think and feel, there’s no point in feeling stressed. Use this affirmation to remind yourself how useless stress is to your mental health.
20. Negativity Can Only Bother Me If I Let It
Remembering that we are in charge of how we react to negative thoughts, emotions, and situations is key to achieving inner peace. Remind yourself that negativity can only bother you if you let it with this affirmation.
21. I Am At Peace With My Decisions
Second-guessing your decisions is going to negatively impact peace and happiness by generating constant feelings of self-doubt and anxiety. It’s important to make decisions and reflect on past decisions with confidence, which is where this affirmation can help.
22. I Inhale Peace And Exhale Doubt
Much like meditation, affirmations can incorporate breathing to be more effective. This affirmation can therefore be used literally to encourage inner peace and remove feelings of doubt.
23. I Am Content
What ultimately brings inner peace is feeling content. As a result, short and simple affirmation is a powerful affirmation you can repeat at any time to inspire contentment, gratitude, and positivity.
24. I Let Go Of Things I Can’t Change
It is pointless to stress over things that cannot be changed. Problems that are out of control to fix are therefore pointless to worry about. This means letting go of them, which this affirmation can help with.
25. I Feel Calm And At Peace
Sometimes telling yourself that you feel a certain way can have a positive psychological effect on the brain. This affirmation is an example of that, which can be repeated to inspire feelings of calmness and inner peace.
26. Today Is A Good Day
Simply waking up is a good day, and every day has the potential to be a great day through your choices and perception. If you struggle to find positivity in the morning or throughout the day, this affirmation can help you.
27. I Radiate Peace To Attract Peace
It’s true that you attract what you put out. And by radiating peace, you will inspire peace and feel it in return. This affirmation is ideal if you struggle to remain at peace as you interact with others.
28. I Have Faith; Not Fear
Choosing to have faith in the outcome you want and not fear the worst is important for feeling at peace. No matter whether you are religious or not, you can use this affirmation to encourage mental peace.
29. I Don’t Need To Rush
A lot of the time, peace is disturbed by the impulse, or unnecessary need, to rush. Whether it’s meeting friends or a goal you want to achieve, remind yourself to slow down and be at peace with this affirmation.
30. I Love The Present
It’s important to love the present, as it’s the only moment that’s real and happening right now. Use this affirmation to forget past mistakes and future desires, and focus on what’s most important: the present and what you are doing right now.
All in all, we hope these affirmations resonated with you to help you find inner peace. You can say them out loud or repeat them in your head; either way, using affirmations is a great way to flip your mood and even permanently change the way you think.
