Being Intentional

Having intention means having the determination to do something. Your intention is your aim, your purpose and your goal. What if you had intention behind everything that you do? Would you breathe deeper? Taste your food better? Connect more and enjoy your time with others? Be more productive? The answer would be yes! Putting intention behind our thoughts and actions allows us to be more mindful, present, connected and peaceful.

How to Practice Being Intentional

An example of how to practice having intention is to take a minute and set an intention for one small area in your life. Such as being fully present while eating your meal. Eat one meal while sitting down and limit external distractions (ie: scrolling on phone) and put your fork down between each bite. Notice how the food tastes, all the flavors and spices used.

Mind Over Matter

Our mind is the most powerful tool we have. There are various distractions that take our us away from the present moment. Such as our phones, sudden events, and most of all, thoughts of the past and future. What if we practiced being present in every moment? How would our decisions, feelings and thoughts change?

May you intend to have peace, love and joy.
