Positive affirmations and mantras are simple tools, which I believe can be an important part of our lives and our mindset. Starting your day with some morning mantras, or positive affirmations, might feel silly at first, but with time and practice, I think you will find them to be not only an enjoyable, but an essential part of your day and your way of thinking.
