Every morning, I choose a word or phrase, a “mantra,” to guide my day. My daily mantra keeps me tuned into my most important emotional, mental, and spiritual priorities for the next 24 hours.
It also sets the tone for the day. If life feels frazzled, my mantra reminds me to breathe, relax, or rest. If I’m feeling unsure, it encourages me to embrace my authority. If I’m distracted, it nudges me to return to the present moment.
I need more than a single word or phrase of the year because I constantly change as does the world around me. The perfect personal message on a peaceful day will not necessarily suit me on a chaotic day.
