If you like to sing and harmonize along to music, mantra is the ideal choice from a mindfulness perspective. The words are minimal - enough to occupy the mind - but they don't overload it with a lot of language processing. The simple words also make mantra easy to sing along, even on the first listen. Most other mantras tend to be in a foreign language and can be associated with various spiritual practices. However, below you will find a handful of MODERN mantras in English, augmented with the word "Om" which of course appears in many ancient mantras as well. But there are no ties to any specific spiritual practices here. These mantras are simply a modern approach to a powerful music technique to help you stay attentive to the present moment.
