Having a case of the Mondays? Whether you’re starting a new job, trying to lose weight, moving to a new city or expecting a baby—each week comes with new responsibilities, goals and challenges. But one way to handle life’s twists and turns is through practicing mantras. A mantra is a prayer or phrase that you repeat to yourself silently or out loud to help you focus on your intentions.
The benefits of practicing mantras:
- Calms the mind
- Relieves anxiety and depression
- Increases self-awareness
- Increases positive thinking
- Increases focus
No matter where you come from, how much money you make, where you went to college—we are all in the same boat called life. We are all dealing with different problems mentally, physically, emotionally, and socially. When people tell us that we aren’t good enough, smart enough, strong enough, or skinny enough—mantras settle the noise and allow us to find peace and power within. After all, we can do and be anything if we put our minds to it.
