If you’ve never tried a mantra, 2019 is the year you should start doing it. A lot of the stress and negativity we experienced last year has a lot to do with the way we talk to ourselves. A mantra will help you speak to yourself more positively and help transform your thoughts for the better. Mantras are words or sentences that you repeatedly say to yourself to quiet your brain and help you narrow down your focus on that specific thought.
Say goodbye to negative self-talk and practice these 8 mantras to live by for 2019:
I know who I am and I am enough.
This is extremely important in a world dominated by social media where we tend to compare ourselves with others. Remind yourself that no matter what, you are you and you are enough.
I choose to be present in all that I do.
We live in our smartphones more than we think and prevent us from fully being present. This mantra will help you put technology away and truly enjoy the present before these moments become memories.
Each step is a step closer to where I want to be.
The road to your dreams isn’t going to be smooth-sailing and easy all the time. This mantra will remind you that every step you take to get there is essential and that everything you do is meaningful towards that goal.
I am worthy of good things.
If you’ve ever felt like you don’t deserve any kind of good happening to you – this is your mantra for 2019. Because you absolutely deserve to be happy and to enjoy the good things life has to offer.
My wants and needs are just as important as anyone else’s.
Sometimes we say yes because we’re too scared to say no – even at the expense of our own emotional and mental well-being. This year, learn to say to yourself that your wants and needs matter just as much as other people’s.
I will speak kindness to myself.
If you want a kinder 2019, it has to start with you. Don’t talk down on others or yourself.
I will choose to dwell on positivity.
There is a better way to spend time rather than being anxious, nervous, or negative. Repeat this mantra to yourself to remember to take control of what you give space for your thoughts.
I will surround myself with loving people.
If the people around you aren’t treating you well, you don’t have to keep them around.
