The uttering of daily mantras, otherwise known as affirmations, is an excellent way to start each day. While some people use them to reinforce specific goals, they can also be used to gain and maintain a firm grip on the positive mindset you’d like to carry throughout your day.
The Benefits of Daily Mantras
Daily mantras set up your day by making you consciously aware of your thoughts and your spoken words, making you less likely to allow negativity to enter the equation. A daily practice will help you to slow down, enjoy your day, and keep perspective – especially on the small things in life. Some studies show that daily mantra rituals not only help you stay more positive but will keep your heart healthier as well.
An Attitude of Gratitude
Daily mantras help you to remain in a perpetual state of gratitude. The trick is to make sure what you are grateful for is evolving with you over time. You may at one point be grateful for a specific relationship in your life but over time you may also begin to feel unappreciated and stressed. You can continue to feel gratitude for your relationship, or you can evolve and become grateful for your strength and ability to flow with the changes you’d like to make in your life. Your gratitudes should never make you feel stuck in one place.
Start your day with a series of morning mantras, reinforcing the positive aspects of your life and how you feel about your day. If you have time for a second set, spend some time in gratitude at the end of your day to reinforce your thanks. As your practice evolves you will find you have a whole new outlook on life.
