I often find that I set an intention in the morning….and life happens and it can fall by the wayside. I read about an intention setting technique in “Ask and It Is Given” by Esther and Jerry Hicks, and I now use it all the time.
Instead of setting one intention for the day, you segment your day into different parts and set an intention for what is right in front of you. Here are a few examples:
If I were about to run a few errands, I may say to myself “I set the intention for this next part of my day running errands to flow. I will get everything done with ease and grace.”
If I were sitting down to dinner with my family I may say to myself, “I will enjoy this meal and be present and in the moment.”
If I were about to meditate I may say, “I will practice my meditation with compassion for myself and understand that thoughts come and go.”
There is no limit to how you segment, and you can do this one time a day or ten. You can’t mess up or do it wrong. Breaking the day into segments and setting intentions this way has helped me to feel more mindful at each twist and turn of my day. I hope you enjoy it too!
