Whether you’re chanting a mantra in yoga class, writing them down for visual confirmation or repeating an affirmation in the mirror, these words of wisdom can have a real impact on your life and even help you out with some of those resolutions you made. So, we asked a few of the most inspirational yoga and wellness women we know to share some mantras that have changed their lives.
“I am thankful for all that I am and all that I have.”
It’s so easy to focus on what you don’t have. It’s easy to get obsessed with the better job, the thinner body and the nicer house but none of those things will make you as happy as being grateful for what you have. This beautiful, simple mantra from yoga teacher, Lauren Ash, will help you find that gratitude.
“I am open to the abundance of the universe.”
When your heart and your mind are open to all the people, opportunities, adventures and ideas that the universe has to offer, good things happen. Let the universe know that you’re ready for abundance with this mantra from yoga teacher and Toronto’s Misfit studio founder, Amber Joliat.
“I am strong because I’ve been weak. I am fearless because I’ve been afraid. I am wise because I’ve been foolish.”
All the hard times and the difficult things that you go through in life will beat you down if you let them. But they can also make you stronger. Remind yourself you can get through anything with this powerful mantra from yoga teacher, Cora-Lynn Hazelwood.
“I am welcoming abundance into my life. I am receiving everything that I need.”
One of the easiest ways to bring more abundance into your life? Be grateful for what you already have. This mantra from wellness educator, Lauren Nixon, will remind you of all the things that you have to be grateful for and help you welcome even more of those things into your life.
“Love all the way.”
Too often, we don’t show our family, friends, partners, even strangers, all the love we have. Remind yourself to love all the way with this empowering mantra from yoga teacher, Stephanie Birch. And don’t be surprised when all that love comes flowing back to you.
“Fuck it. Just do it.”
If there is something you have always wanted to do, this is the year to forget your fears, drop your doubts and just go for it, whatever it is. We love this short and not so sweet mantra from yoga teacher and life coach, Melissa Colleret, which is sure to bring you all the bad ass bravery you need.
