33 Powerful Morning Mantras That Will Transform Your Day

Morning Mantras

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.

Sometimes the right mantra comes to me immediately when I set my pen to paper. Other times, I’m inspired by my daily 3-card tarot reading.

I record my morning mantra in my bullet journal, on my daily page, using tall lettering and encircling it with the outline of a cloud so it stands out.  Check out a photo of my daily page in this article.

33 Morning Mantras to Uplift Your Day

These are the exact mantras I’ve used over the last 30 plus days.  Each one reflected a particular need I felt in my heart and soul on that day.  You can try them out or use them as a guide to make your own because words that resonate with your own needs, wishes, or dreams will serve you most powerfully.

5 Things You Need to Know for a More Enlightened Life


How to Reclaim Your Calm When Life Feels Chaotic


  1. Today I found myself judging myself and actually caught myself doing it and talked to myself about what I was doing and what it meant and what I could do instead to be loving and kind to myself. So the mantra for today—-Let go of Judgement! 🙂

  2. Craig Craig

    I hope this doesn’t come across the wrong way but why is it 33 a masonic number? When you do an affirmation a day there are no 33 day months?? Also why is your address Google’s at the bottom of your email?? Again no malice intended just would like transparency.

    • I don’t have any answers to your questions, Craig. I simply like the number 33. I don’t know anything about the masonic affiliation.

  3. I read down the list and the two relating to “rest” spoke to me. I have been so sleepy lately! My body has added an extra hour of sleep to my natural cycle in recent weeks. Maybe the season and the growing darkness? I’m not sure. But instead of fighting it, I’m curious to see what it’s about, so I’m following my body’s lead.

    • I love how aware you are, Galen, and willing to follow your body’s lead. Maybe it is the change in seasons. It’s getting dark awfully early here all of the sudden.

  4. Thank you for this useful list. I found several I like. I’m going to refer to this list when making recommendations for affirmations to others.

  5. “Be here now” and “rest” are huge ones for me. I could also use all the others on the list. I love the idea of setting an intention for each day. I’ve struggled with a method to keep it front of mind. I really like your practice of writing and highlighting it in your daily journal. Beautiful!

    • Those two are big for me right now too, Paige. “Rest” is mine for today and it’s been delightful. I’ve also struggled with keeping my intention at the forefront of my mind each day. The daily journal method is working well for me right now.

  6. Hi Sandra…This is such a great idea.

    For years now, I’ve have started my day with a specific thought that I return to frequently. Sometimes it’s one I keep every day for a week or more. Sometimes I switch them up more often, because, like you, I absolutely believe it sets and maintains my vibrational frequency…or tone for my day.

    Plus it’s a wonderful way to create a belief about myself that I want to keep or build.

    • I’m so inspired by your daily practice, Elle. I can definitely see the possibility of keeping the same one for a week, although so far I’m switching off each day. But sometimes I repeat one in the same week.

  7. I like your morning mantras, Sandra. The list is very helpful and one that I will definitely be keeping. #28 and #31 speak to me particularly this morning. I would like to incorporate this into my journal writing as well, so thank you!

    • Hi Cathy,

      #28 is especially important to me too right now. My daily journaling method is working well for me right now. It’s usually hard for me to keep up habits, but this one is amazingly easy. It’s really enriching my life. I’m glad you feel inspired by the idea.

  8. Thanks for your posting .
    Keep posting like this is very helpful For us
    I have found something new in this Article.

  9. Its in my nature to learn from others who are better than me. I apply a similar learning approach for blogging as well. A few week ago I started a blogging series by writing things that I have learned, Put to action and seen results.
    Thanks for sharing another sooper post.
