The chanting of a mantra (sounds, words or phrases chanted as a song or prayer) can be very soothing and uplifting at the same time. The vibrations created by repeating the mantra are thought to bring a deep sense of well being.
Positive affirmations can be very effective to counteract much of our negative thinking and self-talk. Make your affirmations clear and specific such as, "I am not afraid to face my fears."
