I may be one of the few people who still use the option to add a phone greeting or, as my phone labels it, “a personal banner.” Ever since my first cell phone in high school I have typed out the same message to myself.

For years it has been, “Be kind to yourself and others.” With my new phone there is less space and not enough room for my whole mantra (I guess personal banners aren’t making the cut anymore) so I have updated my personal message to “Be kind.” Every time I open my phone and read “be kind” it serves as a reminder for me in that moment to be aware of what I want to be and try to be it.


Do you have a mantra? Do you keep it written somewhere?
