All the busy-ness can take its toll on us, emotionally, spiritually
and physically. Sometimes, all we need is a few mindful minutes during the day,
taking time to be still, present and mindful - especially in this year of all years.
Here are my favourite mantras for a mindful Christmas:
I breathe in calmness, I breathe out stress
A mindful mantra to help you when you're feeling stressed by a long to-do list or lots of demands on your time. Take a few moments to breathe deeply, and repeat this mantra - you'll be amazed at the difference it makes to your mindset. Just slowing down to breathe and say the mantra, will help.
I feel calm, safe and grounded
If, like many of us, you find yourself feeling overwhelmed during the Christmas season, try quietly repeating this to yourself, whilst picturing a peaceful scene, perhaps a calm body of water or a quiet woodland glade.
I feel loved and connected
Christmas is a time for family, but sometimes we are so busy we forget to prioritise time with the people we love the most. This mantra reminds us of the loving connections that surround us, and urges us to appreciate our friends, family and those dearest to us.
I am grateful for all that I have
If you can, try to remember what you are grateful for at the end of each day, and close each day with a smile. Focusing on the positives when we feel tired and stressed can sometimes be enough to change our outlook, helping us feel calmer and more grounded.
To prompt you to repeat your mantra, wear a Mantra necklace and hold onto it for a few moments each day. Repeat the mantra to yourself, to bring you moments of peace and tranquillity. Take a look at our Mindful Christmas Gifts, and 'Mini Mantra' our mindful jewellery for children, to inspire a loved one.
