Personal mantras and mental health

Mantras are ancient, energizing sounds that help uplift mood and the stress or suffering (Dukkha) of the everyday. ‘Mana’ in Hindi translates to mind; a mantra is what takes you ‘beyond the current mind’.

They are traditionally repeated, chanted, or listened to with mindful repetition. Like self-statements in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), they help to manage stuck mind: feelings of dread, anxiety, worry, intrusive thoughts.

In my Mindfulness-based therapy practice, I encourage people to find what is meaningful to them. What is your mantra that really speaks to you and your struggles?

Put it on your mirror, your phone, post-its, in your backpack, journal, desk, fridge. Repeat.

Mine is : No One To Be.
