The new year gives everyone a chance at a new beginning. It gives you a chance to reflect on your life and see which areas you can improve upon and which areas you need to let go. Most people start the new year with a lot of joy and enthusiasm but two months into it and we are back to our old ways and already given up.
One way to ensure that you don’t give up on your new path in the new year is to remind yourself not to give up and to keep going everyday, and that is why you need a mantra for the new year. Something you will tell yourself everyday, to remind you to keep working on your goals for the new year.
Below we’ve put together a list of mantras for new year. Find out which ones resonate with you and say it to yourself as many times in a day as you can.
