I will have a go at my post..........LOL
When our minds are troubled by life's challenges, practice of the mantras can be performed as a kind of balm, to soothe the anxiety, sadness or agitation in the mind. Even if the mind is competing with the mantra recitation, the latter will gradually wear down the mental chatter, leaving one in a peaceful state.
For myself when I start to feel the anxiety coming on, I will repeat " I am Ok, I am OK". I say this slowly and practice my deep breathing at the same time. Another one I use is " Take it easy, take it easy"
It helps me live in the present moment. It helps me slow down. I feel that I'm much more compassionate, and I have a better ability to concentrate on whatever it is I'm doing.
Choose what works for you.
