10 Bedtime Affirmations for a Deep and Peaceful Sleep

Imagine closing your eyes after the end of a long day and NOT taking the stress to bed with you. How nice would it be wake up in the morning feeling refreshed — mind, body, soul? You need that! You deserve that rest. Use these positive bedtime affirmations to guide you into a peaceful state of mind so your body can get the rest it deserves.

Remember...

With each new positive thought, you make space for what you do want.

Every time you repeat one of these positive bedtime affirmations, you make peace your priority. And you make peaceful sleep more of a reality.

If you need help falling asleep most nights, get my book Sleep Affirmations: 200 Phrases for a Deep and Peaceful Sleep.

So many readers have sent me emails and messages on social media telling me how much this book has helped them (or whoever they gifted it to)... not just sleep better, but heal better.

Affirmations are great tools for interrupting old or negative thought patterns. You can use this kind of positive self-talk to form new neural pathways in your brain, strengthening the beliefs that serve you and giving less attention to what stresses you out and keeps you up at night.

Repeating these bedtime affirmations is like telling your body that it’s okay to rest. It’s okay to believe in something helpful and kind. You’re allowed to feel good at the end of a long day.

“Sleep is the best meditation.” – Dalai Lama

A few tips to help you make the most of your bedtime affirmations:

  • Choose whichever affirmation feels closest to your current reality. You can say “I am willing to believe…” if that helps.
  • Repeat it a handful of times right before you’re ready to fall asleep. Repeat just the main affirmation, or pick and choose which phrases most resonate with you.
  • Read slowly and savor. Feel the energy of the words and the spaces between. Visualize what the words mean to you.
  • Try gently pressing down each finger to your thumb on one hand, and then the other, until you’ve completed 10 repetitions.

Whichever bedtime affirmation you go with tonight, use it again tomorrow, and the next night. Or, choose one affirmation each night and rotate through them all before starting again at #1.

When you have the book (with a whopping 200 affirmations!) you can do what most people do with it: flip to a random page and trust that the words you land on are meant for you right now.

Most importantly, believe in yourself. Believe you can sleep better and fall asleep feeling good. It’s your nature and you’re getting back home, to the peace that’s always been inside of you.

Imagine closing your eyes after the end of a long day and not taking the stress to bed with you. How nice would it be wake up in the morning feeling refreshed — mind, body, soul? You need that. You deserve that rest. Use these positive bedtime affirmations to guide you into a peaceful state of mind so your body can get the rest it deserves.

10 Calming Bedtime Affirmations

1. I release today.

I let go of fear, worry, anger, and blame. I release anxieties and stress. I release the heaviness of today and the weight on my shoulders. I let go of negative thoughts, and keep the happy ones. In my sleep will I find the freedom to know joy and peace again.

2. I forgive it all.

What has happened has been so, and there is no other way I could have or should have let it be. And so, I let it go and I let life be as it is. I forgive the people, I forgive the situation, and I forgive myself. I trust life and I am safe.

3. I have permission to fall asleep.

I give myself permission to close my eyes tonight, and awake refreshed tomorrow. I am allowed to drift into a good night’s sleep. My body, mind, and soul are worthy of their rest.

What I've done today is enough. I am and have enough, and now I allow myself time to rest.

4. I now enter a place of deep and restful sleep.

My bedroom is a place of peace and relaxation. When I enter this room, and crawl into bed at night, today’s thoughts naturally begin to soften. My burden lightens and sleep is coming.

5. I am grateful.

I am grateful for this life. I am grateful for the people who have been my teachers. I am grateful for the lessons life has brought. I am grateful for love that I receive, give, and share. I am grateful for the light of day. I am grateful for the darkness of night, in which I will sleep peacefully tonight.

6. I embrace my dreams.

As the night gets dark, my worries fade. I sleep peacefully knowing I have done all I could do for today. I embrace my dreams, for tomorrow will come with a new light and new strength.

I fall asleep with my dreams close to my heart, and all is well.

7. May my sleep be peaceful.

May my sleep be peaceful. May my dreams be filled with love. May my soul awaken to the infinite possibilities for happiness in my life.

8. I invite the qualities of good sleep.

I welcome peace into my home. I invite light into my heart. Love, happiness, and comfort abide in my soul. My spirit is content and my mind is still. I become tranquil, relaxed. With gratitude, I welcome a good night’s sleep.

9. I choose peace.

I choose peace instead. I close my eyes and choose to see again with new eyes, beyond what my physical eyes can see. Peace is my priority. Peace begins with me, and there is peace in my soul.

“Nothing can disturb the calm peace of my soul.” – Jiddu Krishnamurti

10. I am in harmony with the universe.

I match my heartbeat with the beat of the universe. I am in harmony with the night and the sleep that will come with it. There is no separation now, only one heartbeat that beats slowly, peacefully.

    Mine is enjoying life’s little moments of surprise as they come- a surprise call from a long lost friend, an unexpected smile from a total stranger. In terms of affirmations- may you be at peace with yourself, and contentment will follow. Be grateful for what you already have. Keep things simple and in perspective. And go with faith and love (I practice universal love and acceptance).

    In peace (Om), Gayathri

    Your sleep affirmations have helped me immeasurably. “I release today” affirmation has changed my life for the better – I add on resentments and envy to your list of 4. I say this affirmation during the day or when I am feeling stressed. It helps me so much God Bless you. Sweet Dreams!
