New fave product: Mantra Band

Personally, I have a really hard time taking the om that I practice on my mat and applying it to everyday life. During yoga, I’m positive, encouraging, forgiving, and happy with myself in the moment. The second I roll up my mat, though, I’m back to being a total stressball and my own worst critic.

This year, I’ve resolved to change my attitude once and for all. My goal is to learn to live in the moment, always, no longer dwelling on what such-and-such parent said to me yesterday or that looming half marathon I’m feeling oh-so-unprepared for.

While trolling Instagram recently, I stumbled upon the perfect yogi-esque product to help remind me to stay on track: Mantra Band. These adorable bangles come in silver, gold, & rose gold and have a variety of mantras inscribed on them, serving as a perfect little reminder to Choose Love or to Enjoy the Journey or that Peace Comes From Within (this one is inscribed inside the bangle. LOVE).

Cheesey as it may be, I’m hopeful that my new Live in the Moment Mantra Band will help me remember to do just that. No more stressball here! 🙂

And the best part? They stack beautifully with a watch and some Alex & Ani’s, which are staples in my day-to-day.
