1. an act or instance of determining mentally upon some action or result.
2. the end or object intended; purpose.
Setting a daily intention is a way to allow your attention to focus on how you want your day to look, what you want to focus on along with how you want to feel.
It allows you to connect to your mind body and spirit.
I started a FaceBook group on Mother’s Day after posting that I want to be more intentional about my life, the actions I’m taking and how I’m going about my day so that I make decisions and do things based on what’s truly important to me. What has become an important part of the group are the daily intentions…
Here are a few of my favorites:
“Conscious conversation as a path to inspired action.”
“Fuel my body and mind with wonderful, sparkly nutrients (i.e., green smoothie for breakfast, healthy lunch and dinner, take my vitamins and supplements, longer sit spot, drink plenty of water, loving and self-compassionate thoughts, exercise, balance of work and play, gratitude journal, higher sunscreen to take in and enjoy every moment today. Stop myself and be totally present and breathe in and feel where I’m at.”
“Take things as they are and not make them mean something more than than that.”
“Patience with myself and others. Finding myself on edge lately.”
According to my friend Joe, “Intentions are goals in sheep’s clothing.” I can’t say I disagree.
