Mantras can be powerful tools to keep you in the moment and while I don't employ them as often as I should, I believe in them and have used them to my advantage. One of my favorites is from my Poekoelan days of old. It is short, sweet, and applicable to most any situation:
If you're feeling overwhelmed in the moment or just feel like you need to center and focus, take a few minutes to close your eyes and repeat this mantra in your mind. Even 5-6 repetitions while breathing deep into your belly can make a world of difference in the middle of the busy day.
So breathe deep, and have a wonderful week!
