Affirmation for Reducing Stress and Losing Weight

I am melting the extra pounds of negative stress away by balancing my intake of duties, expectations, and pressures.

 My life is in balance. By prioritizing, I create my own pyramid of responsibilities. My priorities are my guidelines for how I spend my time, energy and money.

In order to stay balanced, I do not over indulge in any one area.I set limits for myself so that I can stay healthy. Balancing my responsibilities is my exercise. When I stay the course, I burn off the excess weight of busywork or distractions. My life feels more fulfilling when I replace busywork with meaningful tasks.

I remove anxiety from my diet and replace it with careful planning. I balance my duties by filling out my planner. If I see that I have too many tasks on one day, I stop adding responsibilities for that date.

Sometimes I have to say “no” to some things. Other times I simply have to say “not now.” If I tried to do it all and neglected to limit my activities, I would burn myself out and experience negative stress.

My expectations are fair. If others place unrealistic expectations on me, I work hard, but I replace them with realistic ones. I take on reasonable challenges. I am encouraged when I exceed my expectations. If I set my expectations too high and then I miss, I would be stressed and discouraged.

A moderate amount of stress is good for me, but when I feel myself getting buried under pressure, I know it’s time to re-evaluate my diet. I am careful not to crush myself under pressure in the name of challenging myself. There is a difference between taking on a challenge and simply taking on too much.

When I melt away negative stress I fit into my clothes of cheerfulness and peace of mind.
