2018 MY YEAR FOR INTENTIONAL LIVING…
Hey there lovelies, welcome to the blog today . It’s time for the popular routine every one does at this time of the year , which is what they call new year resolutions, new year rules , and all that . And all these said , before we get to the first quarter of the new year , we forget all the rules and we are back to our old self .I realised the only thing that matters is the consistent daily actions of those habits and doing it can change your life in significant ways . So it’s not about saying it and not practicing them . Please lets us be practical and exact, so In today’s post I will be writing ✍️ how to live with intention in 2018. If we don’t understand the meaning of having to live with intention , there is no amount of lists, or goals that we write that will be manifested .Intentional living means living authentically and living in line with your values, beliefs, ideas and goals . It’s is simply taking actions and making decisions with true intention.I will be sharing 6 ways that you can start the new year coming with intentional living :INTENTIONAL WITH YOUR TIME- you need to be more intentional with how you spend your time on a daily basis . You need to cultivate good habits by going to bed early a night before work . Remember the way you start your day reflects more in how you end your day . This is where prioritising comes in. This will even bring a good calm day and peace for you and it also reduces pressure and stress .so be advised to spend your time wisely 👌🏼.INTENTIONAL WITH YOUR PURCHASES- Guys , this is definitely for someone like me 😄😄😄😁😁😁😁. This is something I personally will focus more on in 2018, as I love buying and it has no end for me . What I have decided now is I will tell myself when I see new products, to go back home and give my self a week to really think if I need new stuffs . It will save more money to be used on other important things .This even develops discipline and at the end of the day ,I will be happy I made the decisions. So if this is for you too , grab you copy 😁😁😁😁.
- INTENTIONAL WITH YOUR WORDS – Hmmmm this is a deep one ! I must confess this year , my choice of words has put me in trouble because of miscommunication .Some words I said were taken the other way round even when That’s was not what I meant to pass across . Am sure you can all relate with this . If we are not intentional with our words , it will lead to arguments, fights , confrontation and all those things we don’t really want in our lives . You need to improve on the language we speak as words are so powerful. Right now in my life , I am accessing the way I speak to people as I was advised by one of my big sister so dear to me and since she advised me on this , I deemed it fit as a wake up call for my own good . Words can uplift and bring people down . So what words do you say to people? I believe the way we pass our words across can have a good impact in your life, from your moods, how you feel and how you make others feel as well .
- INTENTIONAL WITH YOUR DECISIONS- can I ask you a question? What are you saying yes or no to ? Do you always feel pressured when you’re asked a question and instead of you to take your time to answer correctly, you just give an answer that might be wrong. And at the end of the day it comes back to you . If you are in this way of life , next time , all you need to tell them is , Ask if they mind you getting back to them instead of guessing the answer . . Then it’s important to ask yourself some personal questions like Do I have the time now ,it’s something I feel is an obligation , After a while , when you are much confident with your decision, you can get back to them and u will be more happier with your life . I used to put myself in this position for everyone in the past , I will kill my self to put smile on peoples face and won’t even mind suffering in silence for them , but like two years ago , something happened that changed perceptive about it and I learned in an hard way . Please don’t answer yes impulsively . This will reduce your guilt and regret too .
- INTENTIONAL WITH YOUR APPEARANCE- I know this might sound so funny but yes is very vital . I know its great 👍 to love the way you look . You need to ask yourself when you are dressed, how do I feel with this attire? It all start from you . It might just to wear something as little as your favourite nail polish on your nails . I preach feeling good from inside to everyone but at the same time we live in a physical world . How we portray ourselves matters a lot , how you smile , your posture , body language and so on.All these can have impact on how you feel . Your clothing , your hair , how neat you look . People watch you . Trust me .
- INTENTIONAL WITH FOOD 🥘- On a final note , been intentional with your food choices is also a way of living intentionally .When you decide you want to eat more healthier, I believe preparation towards it should be main key . Like you need to be on point on you Food prep , knowing the healthy places to eat when you are outside the comfort of your home 🏠 so if you are hungry , you can still eat healthy meals . If all those options are available, your healthy lifestyle can still be ok. Am sure you can relate with this .
