A mantra is defined as “a word or sound repeated to aid concentration in meditation”, and is something that has been around for over 3,000 years. Recently, they have become more of a mainstream thing with mantras often being used as a tool in yoga classes to promote relaxation and ease stress or anxiety. A standard short mantra should be repeated about 100 times, with longer mantras needing repeated about three times.
All Situations Are Temporary
During the heat of the moment, almost every situation seems like it is going to be a life-altering one. It’s so easy to get caught up in the negativity of a situation, and focus on that aspect solely. However, it’s important to remember that all situations you are faced with in life are temporary, and at a certain point will cease. While things may not go your way all of the time, you still have to focus on the positives and remember all the gifts that life has given us. This too shall pass!
I Love Myself
So often we spend our days worrying about everything, except for ourselves. Self love and self care are crucial aspects of being able to find a sense of inner peace. If you are not happy with yourself first and foremost, how can you expect to be happy with other aspects of your life? Practice self love as often as you can. Make sure you spend time every day building yourself up, especially in a world that wants to bring you down.
Everything Will Work Out
Sometimes things don’t always happen at the time we expect them to, or want them too. Let go of your imaginary timeline! Remember to focus on the end outcome, rather than the hiccups you may face along the way. Stop worrying about when, and make more time to enjoy your life along the way.
I Survived Hardships Before
Facing hardships throughout your life is just another aspect of living, whether we accept that or not. You cannot have high’s in your life if you do not face the low’s. Remember, you have faced hardships in the past and you have survived each one. Focus on what is important, on the positives within the situation, and don’t forget to give yourself the time and the space to heal.
