Living each day with intention is a core focus of mine. I begin everyday in my hot tub where I think about how I want to experience my day. I review what I am going to do that day, who I am going to connect with and how I want to FEEL about all of my interactions. And I literally, set my focus for the day thorough my intentions. And since these intentions are positive (such as feeling connected, productive or creative…), my day starts off in a positive manner.
It is as if I am setting my map for the day. However, I don’t just leave the rest of my day to chance. I check in throughout the day to make sure I am on course with my intentions and to reconnect if I have gone off-course (for example, if I intended to feel creative and am a bit stuck, I will do something that helps me be creative.) I also set mini-intentions before each call I make, before each class I teach, and before each interaction I have so I can feel aligned. This allows me to show up fully present.
So what is your intention for your day?
