I say this often because it’s true: How you start your day is a huge indicator of how the rest of it will play out. That’s why it’s important to reflect, reboot and revitalize your mood by instilling some daily mantras into your life. 

So what exactly is that? Something as simple as daily mantras can shift your mindset to a more happier, healthier one. Mantras are words or sounds repeated to help build concentration and focus, typically in conjunction with a meditation practice.

If you wake up and you're feeling like you need some positive vibes your way, first try to wake up slowly and start the day on your own terms. I like to begin by meditating on some uplifting mantras, while I'm doing some light stretching. 

Take a look at the list below and become inspired and uplifted today, sis:

  • • Today, I will breathe deeply

  • • I can release things that are out of my control
