Daily mantras can positively set you up for the day ahead and help reduce stress.
A mantra is a statement of positive intent.
Something as simple as a daily mantra can shift your mindset and help build concentration and focus. Mantras are words or sounds often used in meditation, but using them is more commonplace in regular daily life to help people manage their mindset.
Some people recite a daily mantra in front of the mirror. Some people recite it mentally. Some people write it down.
Whichever way you use them, they can jump start your day, giving you positive energy. They can also be used at various points in the day to reduce overwhelm, stress and anxiety.
Make a list of up to 10 mantras that resonate with you. Here are some ideas:
Every morning for the next week, choose a mantra that feels right and relevant that day and repeat it to yourself silently before you get up.
Continue to repeat the mantra in the shower or as you prepare breakfast, harnessing positive energy as you go. It might feel odd to start with, but no one has to know your mantra, or even that you are reciting it. It’s personal to you.
If during the day you find yourself feeling stressed and overwhelmed, repeat your mantra to yourself.
See what difference it makes to your day.
