31 Morning Mantras

July 31, 2017

We all know the detriments of putting ourselves down. When we tell ourselves we’re not good enough too many times, we truly begin to believe it, and for many people, mornings aren’t the easiest. The feeling of getting out of bed to exercise, go to work, or take on any other responsibility we feel obligated to do is tough. But that’s because we make it tough. We tell ourselves Mondays are the worst. We tell ourselves it’s too early to exercise. Thoughts begin to circulate in our heads regarding all the things we have to do, all the things we should be doing, and all the things we actually want to do but don’t feel like we deserve or have time for. This negativity only brings on stress.

Mantras are words or phrases meant to be chanted either internally or out loud as a means of meditating. They originated about 3,000 years ago in India, at least to the Vedic tradition, in which they were used to influence and control the gods. Throughout history, they have continued to be used in various ways to promote transformation. In our modern day Western world, they are often seen as a means to shifting our perspectives in order to welcome a new sense of self. In the words of Buddha, “What we think, we become.”

    A few months ago, I bought a card stand from Holstee (Check it out here https://www.holstee.com/collections/reclaim-frames/products/the-reclaim-card-stand). I’ve been saving quotations from Twitter, with the idea of handwriting the quotations on cards to place in the stand, and put on display in the area where I work. The young women at my university are limited-income, first generation and need affirmations, smiles, support and encouragement. I want them to know that I am their biggest cheerleader. Thank you for these mantras, Jenell! I’d like your permission to use them as intended: to encourage, uplift and support another.
