Stress Relief Tool – Repeating Mantras

Repeating a simple word or phrase can do wonders for your stress relief efforts.

A mantra is a positive word or phrase that you say to yourself (silently or out loud) and is a good way to help you stay focused and calm. This technique requires you to close your eyes, think of something motivating or inspiring and repeat this to yourself whenever you feel like you are losing control.

For example, reminding yourself with the mantra “pick your battles” or that “this too shall pass” can have a relaxing effect in under one minute.

Mantras can be anything meaningful to you. I often like the simple phrase “thank you” that I repeat over and over and over again. This mantra reminds me to have gratitude for what I have, and that whatever is stressing me is not that big a deal in the grand scheme of things.

Please note that there is no guarantee a particular stress relief tool will work for you. Thus you must take complete responsibility for using them and for your own physical and emotional wellbeing.
