Ten Stress-Less Mantras to Remember

By Kenzie Kramer on 08/28/2016 | GOTR Picks

The autumn season is full of change – school starts back up, extracurricular activities are in full swing and the lazy days of summer are a distant memory. Big changes are usually complemented with big stress including jam-packed schedules and seemingly never-ending to-do lists. During Girls on the Run, girls learn to “Stop and take a BrThRR” when they face peer pressure, which reminds them to stop, breathe, think, respond and review. Next time you’re feeling overwhelmed, stop, take a BrThRR and remember one of these ten stress-less mantras.

You are entirely up to you.

Ultimately, I can only control myself.

I give myself permission to slow down.

Choose purpose over perfect.

Inhale confidence, exhale doubt.

Be a warrior, not a worrier.

Everything I need is within me.

I choose to be happy.

I have enough, I do enough, I am enough.

Worrying today is borrowing from tomorrow.
