Mantra ‘Live what I love’
This goes hand-in-hand with reprioritising what’s important to you in life and having daily rituals. For me, moving towards simplicity was about letting go of whole load of things that in my new reality were not important. Instead of this, as much as possible my mission was to ‘live what I love’ … this became a daily mantra that helped me stay connected to that drive for simplicity and pursue the things that breathed life into my day.
Go for essence when creating a mantra for your self. In other words, ensure that it captures the essence of how you want to live and make sure it sets a positive tone, something that lifts your spirits. It maybe a song lyric, a quote, something your Gran would say or words that simply and clearly come to mind.
To supper-charge your mantra, use it as a lead to then do stuff that’s good for you. This transforms a mantra from a simple affirmation in to a healthy thinking and doing combo.
