It is Monday, the beginning of a brand new week. Instead of starting your day writing yourself a To-Do List of things you would like to accomplish, today I want to talk about the importance of creating Daily Intentions. Daily Intentions allow you to choose which direction you would like your day to go. Why is this important?
Writing down your Daily Intentions helps you determine what is important to you, how you want to be, and what you want to experience. As a result, you begin to live these intentions ultimately creating the life you want. For me, this is a happier more content life. So when I write my Daily Intentions, they are focused more towards those themes. A Daily Intention does not guarantee that your day will go exactly as you planned it. Life happens. But these Intentions work as a road map to what you want to achieve.
Here a couple examples of the Intentions I like to set at the beginning of the week:
May I live in a state of peacefulness.
May I keep a focused mind today.
May I live my day in a state of continuous joy.
May I have lots of creative energy.
These are just four examples of the types of Intentions that speak to the way that I want to live my life and go about my day. These are not a list of rules, they are a list of guidelines. The whole idea is to promote a happier lifestyle.
A new week is ahead of us now, and I have a feeling it is going to be a good one! What are your intentions for the week? I hope they bring you a sense of peace and happiness.
