It’s all too easy to ease out of bed and allow your life to dictate what happens during the day. Before you know it, you rush around and the day’s done. Over. And you’re back into bed again!
This is where the beauty of intention comes in: Clear your mind, check into your innermost thoughts, and intuitively you’ll know what you want out of the day.
Setting intention in the morning is life-changing. You don’t need to be a Zen master to enjoy the benefits of it: be who you are, set intentions, and you’ll enjoy your life more because you can achieve more clarity, peace, and harmony.
Here are some reasons to seize the day first thing in the morning:
Focus: Setting an intention in the morning allows you to channel your energy into something meaningful. So be positive, and your energy will be focused on everything positive. You’ll be able to tolerate the knock backs that would normally add stress.
Embody: Close your eyes and grasp the images and dreams before you. Setting your intentions like this will enable you to open your heart and nail those fears.
Discipline: As you set your intentions in the morning it reminds you of the NOTs in your lifestyle. You can be disciplined as you hold on to the essential values of your life rather than the impulsive ones.
Boosts self-worth: Set your intentions with self-affirming statements and you’ll feel better about yourself. This is helpful in appreciating who you truly are. When you do, it leads to a deeper understanding of your uniqueness and your relationships with others will strengthen through mutual trust and sincerity.
Reaffirming: Good intentions will always inspire you and guide you to become a better, more compassionate person
