This Simple and Effective 5-Minute Activity Will Get Your Week Started Out Great

Mantras or daily affirmations sometimes come with a negative stereotype, but science demonstrates that it is a powerful practice.

I remember baseball season in high school fondly, particularly away games, when our team would ride a bus to the opposing team’s home field. On that bus trip, we were not allowed to say anything, as our coaches insisted that we sit in silence and think about the upcoming game and what was expected of us.

Even if our thoughts drifted to whatever fills an overactive, hormone-induced high schooler’s brain, the silence and mindful practice was very effective in preparing us mentally for the game ahead.
