What is the theory behind the worksheet?

A mantra is a word, sound, or phrase that is repeated to oneself to provide a specific feeling. Usually, this is aimed at feeling calm or easing anxiety. However, a mantra can be used to increase confidence, build positivity, increase self-esteem, or motivate an individual.

Working with a mantra that is repeated daily in conjunction with meditation or deep breathing allows for a moment of regulation where you can experience increased focus, decreased anxiety, a way to refocus distracted thoughts, and a way to internalize important messages to your self-concept.

You might wish to track your moods over the days you begin to use your mantras to help you see the benefits.

How will the worksheet help?

This worksheet offers the beginning step – a chance to create a mantra that you can use for the next week, you can choose to create multiple mantras at once that you can then pick from each week, or create a new mantra each week.

By choosing your own mantra in a language you understand you avoid any cultural appropriation, ensure that the mantra is personalized to your needs, and you feel connected to the mantra.

How to use the worksheet.

Decide on what you want to focus on this week – it could be easing anxiety or building calm, it could be increasing motivation, it could be building your self-esteem, etc. Think of a word or a short phrase that communicates this or embodies it for you. Write this down. Incorporate time each day, throughout the day where you can repeat this mantra to yourself. It can be helpful to pair this with some deep breathing.
