Sometimes I need to give myself a little pep talk. In the most recent months, I started practicing saying a mantra to myself daily. And it begins with I AM. It has indeed become a v nice self-care routine. A mantra creates a sense of clarity, strength and empowerment. Negative thinking is replaced with positive thinking. And the real feeling of weight lifted off the shoulders is present after saying a mantra. So today, I invite you to make a mantra for yourself. If you need a little guidance on creating one here you go:
OK let’s start with the alphabet…
Think of three positive words that comes to mind describing yourself beginning with the letter A. Then three words starting with the letter B. Repeat for C. After you have them written down, underline 3 of those words. Then!…
Begin saying I AM… with those three words you underlined.
Try this daily for a couple weeks and see if you feel a difference. I know I have.
Also, if this one below speaks to you it’s a good one I learned in my Amala Prenatal and Postpartum Yoga Teacher Training:
I am the perfect mom for my baby
I am the perfect dad for my baby
