Traditionally, mala beads are used during meditation for keeping count while mentally repeating a mantra or chanting. Do not worry if you are just starting with meditation! In fact, mala beads can help you advance your practice faster. Using mala beads in your meditation practice will help you keep your mind focused and centered even if you are a complete beginner. The tactile repetitive sensation of passing mala beads through your fingers can increase your ability to focus on your breath or mantra and thus deepen your meditation. Learn how to meditate here.

Whether it is simply the intention to be more mindful and present in the moment or a mantra/affirmation such as self-love, strength, loving kindness to oneself and others, etc.
