8 Affirmations to Help You Stay Grounded When Life Gets Hectic

8 Affirmations to Help You Stay Grounded When Life Gets Hectic

Wondering why I started this blog? As a multi-passionate creative, I used to be plagued by the idea that success meant choosing one thing and sticking with it. The problem was choosing just “one thing” left me unable to show up in the world as my most authentic, full self. One day I woke up and decided to finally embrace and share all of my gifts. My next thought: I should start a blog as a space for my passions to play. I never looked back after that moment. 

psst. over here.

Do you work with affirmations? These simple words of encouragement are wonderful tools to use when you want to focus on improving a specific area of your life. In my previous post, How to Create a Grounding Ritual Using Crystals, I mentioned that I would be following up with a list of affirmations to use for grounding. I put together this list based on my own desire to have affirmations I could use whenever I need to re-center, re-connect, and ground my energy. My previous post goes more in depth about the importance of grounding, so be sure to check it out if you haven’t already.

Below you will find the first in my Joiful Affirmations series. Each of these affirmation lists will come with a free downloadable version that you can print out and place somewhere where you will see it often, or keep as a page in your journal. Enjoy!


8 Affirmations for Grounding | Free Printable Page |

I stand barefoot on the earth to feel rooted and connected.

I check in with myself before committing to a new project.

I take time to reflect upon my accomplishments.

I schedule time to be alone.

I create space for meditation in my life.

I breathe deeply and allow my breath to anchor me to the present moment.

I replenish my energy with healthy foods and plenty of water.

I am centered. I am grounded.
