Make Up Your Own Mantra

See what it feels like to say your own mantra every day to yourself. This can be done right when you wake up, while you are waiting for your morning coffee to brew, or while sitting in your car right before walking into work. You’d be surprised how much it helps set your mood and your overall level of positivity.

Mantra for today: “Today I want to belong. I want to feel safe and at home. I want to be aware of what it is like simply to be, without defenses or desires. I will appreciate the flow of life for what it is-my own true self. I will notice those moments of intimacy with myself, when I feel that “I am” is enough to sustain me forever. I will lie on the grass at one with nature, expanding until my being fades into the infinite.” —Deepak Chopra
