mantras for nurses

Mantras for nurses can help inspire, motivate, and encourage you whenever you’re having a hard time at work. There is power in repetition and repeating affirming phrases can help transform your negative feeling to a more positive and empowered one.

While a mantra is commonly a powerful sound vibration, we can also take it to mean as setting and repeating an intention.

How To Choose a Mantra (Setting an Intention):

Not all mantras are suited to you and your current difficulty or situation. Here are 5 simple steps you can do to choose your mantra.

  • Identify what you need it for.  Do you need it for self-affirmation? Or do you have a difficult patient or colleague you have to put up with?
  • Choose a positive affirmation that is NO lie and that resonates with you. Don’t choose a mantra that you don’t or can’t really believe in deep down. It has to be genuine and real for you to work.
  • Craft a mantra in the positive. Keep the vibes positive.
  • Keep your mantra short. This will help in making it repeatable. It also focuses your mind on one idea only.
  • Make visual reminders of your mantra to keep it alive in your mind. You can make it your screensaver or wallpaper. You can post it in your bedroom so you can intone it before sleeping and upon waking up.

How And Where You Can Use Your Mantra:

Nurses are very busy people so here’s some suggestions as to when you can get those mantras going.

  • During meditation. A short 5-15 minute meditation will do.
  • Upon waking and before sleep. These are key times during the day because this is when your subconscious is most prone to suggestion.
  • As needed. Is your blood boiling or blood pressure rising due to some problem at work? Do diaphragm breathing, calm yourself, and intone your mantra. It will help for sure!

Whenever and wherever you recite your mantra, the important thing is that you’re getting focused, calming yourself, and setting an intention.
