Mindful Monday – 7 Mindful Mantras to Get You through the Week

Welcome to Mindful Monday! Each week I try to examine new or sometimes old things about myself. I have found that being mindful encompasses the act of being watchful, aware, wary, heedful, alert, careful, or attentive, in whatever area in my life I feel it applies to, as I attempt to live in the present. Come and join me on my journey. You never know what you will learn about yourself.

This week, I want to share seven mindful mantras to help get you through the week.

My mindful goals for this week are to keep working on patience and just living in the moment. I just need to slow down and take it easier. Sometimes I am my own worst enemy! My mantra for the week is: Just BREATHE…

Remember, this is not a challenge.  This is an offering of support.  If you would like to join in with your own Mindful Monday goals you can do so in the comments, or on a separate post of your own making.  If you want to link back to my post, please feel free to do so, however, it is not necessary.  My main aim here is to give and get support to become more mindful of the things I take for granted in my life.

Would you like to share your mindfulness journey with others? If you are interested in sharing your goals or aspirations, I want to highlight your journey here on Silver Threading. Please send me an email at silverthreading@gmail.com and I will be happy to feature you on a guest post.

Here is what ShanJeniah’s Lovely Chaos had to share this week: Savoring Blackberries in the Sun-A Mindful Monday Food Meditation. This is one you will really enjoy! Please stop by and drop her a line.

Thanks for stopping by. I loved seeing all of you!

Namaste. I wish you joy and peace throughout your week!

  1. Namaste! I wish you a mindful week! And that while just breathing and working on patience, you will be guided by the mantra which reminds us to accept and live with both, perfection and imperfection.
    So, if you’re not always patient, you know that it will go away.
    I’m saying the same to myself.
    These are my mantras for the week.
    I loved these mantras. Thank you so much!
    Hugs and love. Have a beautiful day.

    • What wonderful goals you have for the week! I love them. Let me tell you… Thai food is the best. It is spicy hot, but oh so good! I cook Thai quite often. I love your plans for the week. Best of luck to you. Thanks for joining in and letting me know. ❤

    • Edwina, I will be doing more on mindful eating. I ate a ton of cookies last night. I never do that and I know better. Somehow, that food comforted me when I needed it. I accept my behavior and move on. For me, I have to remove the temptation until I get my feelings under control again. Then, I can deal with my emotions. Today, I am back to eating properly. I did not beat myself up for this slip because it has been over a year since I let myself feast on things that I know are not good for me. That is the key. Deal with the emotion and move on. Do not give yourself permission to act that way. It is a mind game. Somewhere along the line we associated food with rewards and pleasure. Once you realize that you will be able to tame your food cravings. Just start small and keep working on it. I am so proud of you for wanting to appreciate your food. That is so very important. All my best to you this week! You can do it!! ❤

  2. Namaste, you beautiful person. Thank you for an excellent post.

    Mindful: Yes, actually I’d love to set some mindful goals for the week. Loved this: “Non-striving”. If one thing riddles me and drives me nuts it’s the stress that comes from compulsive striving.
    This week I’d like to pay extra mind to: My children – being the best supportive parent I can, as my oldest writes her prelims, my youngest practices for her violin exam and my middle child exerts himself in the Paramedic team at school.
    My diet – already non-meat, it can do with less junk food too.
    My house – implementing the pretty extreme KonMari clear-out method in a more gentle, mindful way, making it fit into the rhythms of my day and work without allowing it to overwhelm me. This time I really don’t want asthma.

    For the rest it will be a mad scramble as usual, I guess :-).

    • Thanks so much Erika. What a stressful week it has been. This week will be better. Our open house only had one couple come through. They are just starting on their home buying journey so I am not sure they are ready to buy yet. All we can do is wait. I am slowing down this week and trying to live more in the moment. It is too easy to get swept up in the commotion. Thanks for your support. It means much to me. ❤

  3. Colleen, today I am very mindful of the fact that I have a terrific twenty-five year old son.
    I’m exhausted from the move! But I must give my son, Robert, his due. He was a blessing Saturday and Sunday – I truthfully could not have done it without him. We had much better weather for the move, but the mosquitoes decided to come alive. They were aggressive and persistent. Robert kept focused on the momentum and the task at hand and worked through being bit by the pesky insects, the heat, as well as a blister on the back of his heel. He never mentioned it until I noticed it. He was a beacon of light for me during those two days, and I cherish that. I apologize for not being more focused, but I’ve been going on as little as three hours of sleep almost every night lately.

    Well, I must be on my way. May you be blessed with everything you need for your move,

    Marianne xo

    P.S. I really really like Silver…she is most delightful and always makes me smile!

    • Marianne, that is best news to hear that your move was successful and you are getting settle. I am happy that your son was there to get you through the worst of this moving mess. He sounds like a wonderful person, just like his Mom! You just worry about getting yourself organized and settled.It will all be more fun for you when you are settled. Thank you for popping in. I feel blessed to have your support when your own life is full of changes. Have a marvelous week and know that I am thinking of you. P.S. I wish I could have your boxes! LOL! 😀 ❤
