A Few Good Mantras

It’s no secret that I love mantras. I find it really satisfying to come up with the right one in the morning to act as a touchstone for the rest of my day.

It’s sometimes challenging to come up with them myself, so I thought this would be a good time to post some tips for writing your own, along with some of my favorites quotes for days when you’re feeling stuck. 

Today I am…

So many awesome mantras begin with those three words. It’s really easy to make up your own, because you just need to pick an adjective. Some suggestions to get you started:

  • Fearless
  • Confident
  • Kind
  • Calm
  • Present
  • Enthusiastic

You can also ditch the “am”:

Today I…

  • love my body
  • speak confidently
  • forgive my mistakes


Motivational quotes make awesome mantras too:

Never, never, never give up- Winston Churchill

The secret of getting ahead is getting started- Mark Twain

Either I will find a way, or I will make one- Philip Sidney


A few of my personal favorite mantras:

I can and I will

You got this

Just keep going

How about you? Any great tips or personal favorites you want to share?
