What Your Mantra Should Be

Your life may be practically perfect but you still face challenges all the time. Anything you can do to cope with stress and negativity is fantastic. Meditation has been shown to be a very powerful tool in helping us relax and de-stress, but the timing isn't always right. 

If things start to feel overwhelming, it can be helpful and healthy to have a mantra (a word, sound or phrase you repeat to help you concentrate) or an affirmation (sentences aimed to affect the conscious and subconscious mind in positive ways).

Artist and writer Mari Andrew has illustrated the perfect phrases for each zodiac sign. They're cute, profound, and will probably make you feel a lot better. And if you're already feeling fine, they'll still make you smile. Find out yours.

Aries (March 21 - April 19): Those born under the sign of the Ram are adventurous, loyal, and often the people we look up to the most.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Taureans are strong, loyal, appreciative of beauty, and can sometimes be a bit stubborn.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Those born under this air sign are bright, verbal, social, and depend on their big brains rather than their gut feelings.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Those of the sign of the crab have a deep appreciation for family and friends. Their greatest wish and goal is for a stable home. They feel things very deeply.

Leo (July 23 - August 22): Lions are bold, generous, and strong leaders. They know they rock and they're proud of it.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Virgos are analytical, focused and very attentive to detail. They can have impossibly high expectations of themselves and others. Sometimes they need to give everybody a pass.

Libra (September 23 - October 22): Libras are charming, sensual, and love beauty and art. However, decision-making can be challenging, and Libras do NOT enjoy conflict.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): Scorpios are passionate, sexual, and successful. They have the tendency to be a little blunt with their words.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): Sagittarians are whip-smart, high-energy people who love to reinvent themselves. It can be difficult to pin a Sagittarius down.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20): Pisces wear their heart on their sleeve, and are devoted lovers and friends. They can be selfless to a fault, but it's OK to put yourself first sometimes, Pisces.
