An article in the Wall Street Journal on May 9th by Elizabeth Bernstein, “Say It Again, A Mantra Really Works”, provided a solid review of the research that the thinking of a word or phrase which creates a personal affirmation can have powerful impact. Repeating mantras can physiologically lower cortisol levels and quiet the mind. Mantra means to think.
So, script a personal mantra and use it to center, quiet and distress.
“I am at Peace”
“Nothing is Forever”.
