Is self care becoming an uninspired chore?
Have you forgotten why you do it or why you were interested in the first place?
For those of us who have practiced for awhile, some of us have grown out of the #basic mani/pedi/coffee routine and realized self care goes far deeper than something you can buy. Self care is anything that centers you, replenishes your energy, mood, and ability to help others.
One technique that's really simple is to monitor your thoughts and one way to do that is through repeating a positive mantra. A mantra is essentially a sentence or even a word that you focus on when you remember. When repeated often enough it has significant power to change your subconscious, your actions, and eventually your life.
So today I would like to introduce you to some mantras you can repeat or just meditate on throughout the day to either improve your mood or heal a part of you that may be hurting.
Due to the power of mantras, it is recommended you pick 1-5 of them that stand out to you and repeat them and focus on them for a month, then move on to another group of mantras for the following month.

I forgive myself.
