I know Tina Turner chants, I’ve saved some on my ‘Be a Warrior not a Worrier’ public Spotify playlist.

Discover what resonates with you. Maybe practice saying it and notice where you experience it and what you sense
I use malabeads and repeat this mantra 108 times, it’s OK to just randomly repeat it, you could use fingers to count or a timer, make up your own way explore what works for you.
Notice how much clearer, calmer and focused your thinking is afterwards.
