Setting a daily an intention should be part of your daily wellness routine

Do you feel like your days are passing you by and they are just happening to you? I have felt like this before, and it does not feel good. I remember thinking that there has to be another way…

What I have learned is we don’t have to wait for someone or something else to change this feeling. We have the power; it is just about learning how to unlock it. One key to accomplish this is using intention setting. Now before you roll your eyes and think that I am losing it, hear me out!

Intentions are a way to create focus and meaning in a busy life. Taking a few moments each morning can literally change your day and when you change your days, you change your life.

Ready to get started? Here is how to do it in 6 steps:

  1. Start with asking yourself how you would like to feel today, or maybe it is easier to think about how you don’t want to feel. Some examples would be I want to feel joy, calm, healthy or I don’t want to feel unproductive, tired, frustrated.
  2. Once you have that clarity write it down. For this one, use positive statements so if you said I don’t want to feel tired, when you write it down say- I want to feel energized or awake. Write it on a sticky note or in your journal.
  3. Then, make it specific, not vague and add an intentional action, here are some examples…I intend to feel energized by eating whole foods, drinking 60 ounces of water and taking a walk around the block.
    • I intend to feel calm by approaching challenges with an open mindset
    • I intend to feel productive by writing out my top 3 priorities and focusing on them before anything else.
  4. Take a moment to close your eyes and visualize what this looks like when you fulfill your intention. Maybe you picture yourself smiling, checking off your to-do list, etc.
  5. Check in with yourself throughout the day and see how it’s going. Giving yourself grace and space to make adjustments as needed, or a reminder of your intention.
  6. Evaluate how you feel at the end of your day. What did you learn? What was most helpful? etc. Then repeat the next day!
