You are not alone if every now and again you feel defeated, overwhelmed, anxious and stressed.


And while there are plenty of things you can do to make yourself feel better and to ease the pressure, there is a lot to be said about the power of the spoken word.


If you are feeling a little defeated, take some time out to say one or all of the following mantras in front of the mirror - you will instantly feel a lot more positive:


1. "The grass is not greener on the other side. Stop comparing and start watering the grass you’re on."



2. "Just because it didn’t last forever, doesn’t mean it wasn’t worth your while."



3. "Sometimes the wrong choices bring us to the right places."



4. "If you want to be happy and bright, let go of your need to always be right."



5. "You were made for this."



6. "I’ve done well - I don’t have to be perfect."



7.  "Complaining is only making matters worse."



8. "Don’t worry, be happy."



9. "I am strong. I am beautiful. I am enough."



10. "Perfection is just a figment of human imagination."
