More than 100 Short Mantras for Meditation

Finding a mini mantra for mindfulness meditation

A mini mantra is a tool for mindfulness meditation. Their short length make them easy to remember and easy to pair to the breath. These mantras are between one and five words.

Maybe you have a mantra already - something that you say to yourself that serves to bring you back the present moment and gives you a tiny a pause between your thoughts and actions.

Good for you! You could take that mantra a step further and develop a mini mantra meditation practice. I made an easy guide to pairing breath with short mantras to create moments of mindfulness.

However, if you don't already use a mantra, don't panic. Instead, let these 100 short mantras inspire you. Pick one from the list or make up your own and then start using it during your mini mantra meditation to create a meditation practice that works with your busy schedule.

I've used many of these mantra myself, even putting them into my mini mantra shelfie paintings to serve as a colorful reminder to breathe, be present, and say something kind to myself.
