“Erase the false impressions from your mind by constantly saying to yourself, I have it in my soul to keep out any evil, desire or any kind of disturbance – instead, seeing the true nature of things, I will give them only their due. Always remember this power that nature gave you.”
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations.


When life feels overwhelming or full of distractions that pull your mind in all directions, leaving you feeling all adrift, using a simple mantra can give you focus. Have something you can recite that reminds you that you do have the power to keep out the bad things that cause you upset.
