Chances are you are reading this post because you realize you have an issue with anger.
Maybe not all the time, but at least some of the time.
The good news is by seeking out affirmations for your anger, you are taking a step in the right direction.
Realizing you have an issue is the first step, and taking action to fix things is the second step.
In this post I share with you 144 affirmations that you can say to help you calm down or get yourself back under control.
If you never tried affirmations before, you should read the next section so you get the most out of them and they remain effective long term.
But if you have already been practicing with affirmations, you can move on to the list of anger affirmations.
How To Make Affirmations Effective
Many people make the mistake of just picking an affirmation and trying it out.
If it works great, if not, then they move on.
This is not how to use affirmations.
To be effective, you have to read through all of them and say each one.
As you say them, you have to be present and feel if they have meaning to you.
You know when you will because you will feel something inside light up.
It is as if the affirmation is speaking directly to you.
When this happens, you know you found a winner.
But don’t stop with one.
Pick 3-5 affirmations as it is good to have a few you can use.
Once you have the ones that work for you, you need to make it a habit of saying them daily.
And the more often you can say them, the better.
For me, I say them first thing in the morning and as I lay down for bed.
The reason is because I want to start and end my day with these positive thoughts in my mind.
I will then also say them a few times throughout the day as well, just to reinforce my positive thinking.
And of course, if you are starting to get angry, this is a critical time to pause and recite one of these manifestations.
