Stress and Anxiety have become part of modern life. Too many people are getting crushed under these evils than anything else. May it be a complicated relationship, bad job, too much responsibility, or lack of money, you always end up with stress and anxiety. And the list of things and situations that generate these negative emotions are endless.
But it’s not the list that you should think about but what happened next is the point of concern. When you get into the grip of these negative emotions you must make yourself because unrelieved stress affects almost every function of the body, causing insomnia, high blood pressure, constipation, depression and an assortment of anxiety-driven aches and pains.
If you are feeling stressed every single day, then you must look for the solution now. If you can’t take giant steps then start with baby steps.
At times, even a few words of wisdom can set you free from these negative emotions.
In this post, I am sharing 50 Powerful Stress and Anxiety Quotes that will help you fight back and make you feel free.

Awesome AJ’s Advice to Overcome Stress and Anxiety Quickly:
1. Next time You’re Stressed: Take a step back, inhale and laugh. Remember who you are, why you’re here. You’re never given anything in this world that you can’t handle. Be strong, be flexible, love yourself, and love others. Always remember, just keep moving forward.
2. Yes, SELF-LOVE is the key. And it’s not just spiritual teachers and authors, but doctors approve this. I keep reminding you to love yourself more.
Here are few great words from a Doctor, NYT Best-Selling Author, and Teacher Dr. Christiane Northrop on Self-love.
As a doctor, let me tell you what self-love does: It improves your hearing, your eyesight, lowers your blood pressure, increases pulmonary function, cardiac output, and helps to wire the musculature. So, if we had a rampant epidemic of self-love, then our healthcare costs would go down dramatically. So, this isn’t just some little frou-frou new age notion, oh love yourself, honey. This is hardcore science. – Dr. Christiane Northrop
