A 30 Day Mantra Challenge (+ FREE activity guide)

Now that you know how to incorporate mantras in your daily life and have read up on the mantras folks love and use, let’s get action oriented! The benefits of mantras are no joke and committing to a 30 day practice is a wonderful first step to start reaping the rewards. So, I’ve created a 30 Day Mantra Challenge!

There’s a new mantra for every day of the 30 day challenge. Each day, focus your thoughts on the words. Repeat them to yourself as you get ready in the morning and during your work-outs. Let them wash over you as you take breaks, feel over-whelmed, or sit in traffic. Consider their power as you turn in for the night. Let’s get started…

Day 1. Today I let go of all that does not serve me.
Day 2. I choose to nourish my heart and mind.
Day 3. I choose compassion and kindness.
Day 4. I am loved.
Day 5. I feel abundance all around me.
Day 6. I feel abundance within me.
Day 7. Everything is working in my favor.
Day 8. The Universe is powerful and I exist within it.
Day 9. I trust in the power of the Universe.
Day 10. I am strong.
Day 11. I am grounded.
Day 12. I am connected.
Day 13. I send healing light to those in need.
Day 14. I align myself with my highest truth.
Day 15. I communicate with love and understanding.
Day 16. I open myself to the fullness of my power.
Day 17. I am enough.
Day 18. My mind is clear.
Day 19. This is my path towards a higher purpose.
Day 20. I connect and ask for guidance.
Day 21. I am grateful for this day.
Day 22. I am grateful for my body.
Day 23. I am grateful for my mind.
Day 24. I feel gratitude for the abundance all around me.
Day 25. I am graceful.
Day 26. I have the tools to overcome any obstacle.
Day 27. Practice and all is coming.
Day 28. I love and honor where I’m at today.
Day 29. Be brave.
Day 30. Find delight!

In need of a pep talk?

hands making a heart

The ladies at Babe Vibes have got you covered. Designed by Kara Haupt and developed by Paige Lewis, The Pep Talk Generator is a completely genius project of encouragement. I recommend you go ahead and bookmark this page right now! I’ll wait.

Wouldn’t you love to visit the site when you’re feeling lonely or a project seems too big to finish or a down-in-the-dumps black cloud is hovering right over top of your head? What sort of uplifting words could the generator have in store for you? Perhaps this…

“From one grown woman to another, in the face of a challenge you can either break down or break open. When we allow ourselves to break open and let ourselves be immersed by our emotions, we can truly be honest with ourselves and evolve in the most positive and healthiest way. One of the nice things about growing up is being able to say no, to change your mind, and to become brave enough to show who you are even if it hurts. The self-awareness and self-love you grant yourself can be your saving grace; they might help you reacquaint yourself with the courage you forgot you had all along.” –Shaya Ishaq

“Wow, you are gorgeous! You are powerful. No one else can do what you do. You don’t need approval from those around you to know how irreplaceable you are — you just need yourself. Today, remind yourself that you can do anything… because you can.” –Lyndsay Wright

❤ or ❤

“You know what, babe? Sometimes, life gets really weird. You think you have your shit on lock and you’re cruising to your own song but then the song changes and you’re left trying to take steps in the dark. This will happen to you at the worst of times and you’ll grapple with what you want and maybe even who you are! And babe, that’s okay. The movement will shift you into a better position to become the self you seek to be. Just remember to be patient and hold on to the best parts, surround yourself in good things and let the song change. Maybe it was just time for a new tune.” –Kelsie McNair

…is just what you need to hear. And the best part, in my opinion, is that each quote is attributed to a lovely lady with a link to her ~website or blog or instagram or twitter~ so you can put a face and a personality to their sweet words. They’re just regular people who’ve no doubt been through some shit too or have had equally tough moments to the one you can’t seem to shake.

Maybe this site seems a bit fortune cookie-ish and sappy to some of you out there. But if not, I think it’s a great opportunity for you to incorporate a little bit of self-love and affirmations into your every day routine. Even when you’re not necessarily feeling all doom and gloom. Check the site, reflect on whatever words appear, and think about ways to use or grow from them. 5 minutes. That’s all it takes. And really, who couldn’t use a daily pep talk?!

P.S. My pep talk to YOUI think you’re pretty neat. I think you’re extremely creative. Things might seem like they’re falling apart all around you right now but isn’t that a wonderful opportunity to build something even better and stronger? Today you chose to get out of bed and live in this world and that was extremely brave. Visit the mirror like you’re visiting an old friend. Make a goofy face, sing Beyonce lyrics, whisper your love through truths and inside jokes. Keep creating. The end product may not be entirely what you had in mind but the process behind the result means you MADE something today and that’s more than most can say. In fact, you’re the only person living and breathing in this very moment to have made what you made. Listen for inspiration in the voices of those around you. And when you can’t quite hear it? Read your own words aloud. I am so proud of you. 

If you could give a pep talk to someone struggling today, what would you say?
