Begin your day with intention.

Do you wake up at the very last second, dress in a rush, and eat breakfast on your morning commute?Do you find it hard to feel in control of your day when it’s in your hands?You must have a daily routine to live an intentional life.When you start your mornings with intention, you will be more present and happy throughout the day.You can start your day with intention if you choose activities that nourish your body and mind.You can make sure that you start the day on the right track if you plan ahead.

Step 1: A body Scan can be done.

The body scans technique brings awareness to the sensory experiences of your body.When you first wake up, you can feel grounded in your body.You will notice if you are holding any tension in certain areas because you will carefully move through different body parts.Lying down on your back in your bed is what you can do to perform the body scans.As you exhale and inhale, ask yourself, “How does it feel to be lying here?”Look at how it feels.To observe how they feel, bring your mind’s eye to your toes.Is there any sensation present?If you don’t notice, what the absence of sensation feels like.Allow your mind to travel up your body.Don’t judge if your mind wanders.Bring your attention back to your body.It is possible to do this at any time during the day, whether you are brushing your teeth or eating lunch.The simple act of focusing your attention on the present moment can have positive effects on your mood throughout the day.

Step 2: Drink some water.

hydration is important as you start a new dayThe first thing you should do in the morning is drink water.You get the ball rolling on your daily goal of eight or more glasses with the first glass of water.Adding lemon juice to your water will give you additional health benefits, such as aiding in digestion, increasing your metabolism, and adding vitamins C and K.

Step 3: It’s a good idea to eat a breakfast.

If you are flying by the seat of your pants in the morning, you may not have time to eat healthy.A part of starting your day with intention is making sure you are consuming the right amount of vitamins and minerals.To support memory and concentration, choose foods with a good amount of fiber andProtein.Think of a bowl of oatmeal and berries.When you run out the door, make time to sit down and eat your breakfast.Experience the smell, taste, and texture of your food by chewing it.

Step 4: Get active.

Once the demands of the day start taking over, many people set a daily intention of exercising, but this goal falls to the wayside.If you schedule a workout at the beginning of the day, you will have a healthy habit that will benefit your health and well-being for a long time.Morning exercise can help with weight management.When you step out of bed, do a series of stretches to wake your body up.Before breakfast, do a yoga sequence.Go for a run in the park after lacing up your sneakers.

Step 5: Take a walk outside.

Most people spend their days sitting in cubicles in steel and glass buildings and going home to eat.Being intentional about your day means you should include practices that nurture your mind, body, and spirit.Spending time outdoors can help reduce depression, fight stress and prevent illness.You can either look at the sky, listen to the birds, or feel the morning breeze on your skin.

Step 6: Pray, meditate, or repeat something.

Getting in touch with your spiritual side is a great way to start your day.Simply sitting in quiet and speaking with your higher power, chanting, or just breathing can set the tone for a peaceful and engaged day.Whether you believe in a higher power or not, you can use your words and thoughts to attract the day you want.Affirmatives include, “Today I can handle any challenges that come my way,” or “I am feeling capable, healthy, and calm today.”

Step 7: You can choose a word for the day or week.

Clarify how you want to start your day.You can pick a word or phrase that relates to your goal or ultimate purpose.As you shower, brush your teeth, or dress for the day, you might take a moment to think about this word.If you want to limit distraction that lowers your productivity, you might repeat the word “focus” in the morning and throughout the day.

Step 8: There is a journal.

Write down your thoughts, feelings, observations, or objectives in the morning.If you are a creative type, you can choose a prompt to write on.When you wake, you might be able to write about what’s on your mind.Journaling helps lower stress, increase problem-solving skills, and bring about awareness to your thoughts and emotions, in addition to being a wonderful practice to help you unload all that’s tugging at your brain.

Step 9: Don’t forget to practice gratitude.

It would be great to tell the universe all you are grateful for in order to set the tone for your day.It is easy to fall into negative thinking traps when you wish you had something.A mentality that shifts your thoughts in a positive direction is built by being intentional about practicing gratitude in the morning.You are grateful for three things when you wake up.As you become more attentive to all the wonders in your life, you will start to notice how the list seems to grow and grow.

Step 10: Go to sleep earlier.

If you sleep too much or wake up too sleepy, your plans can quickly be derailed.Most people don’t get the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep each night, and it can affect everything from cognitive skills to work performance the following day.If you want to get better quality and quantity sleep, go to bed an hour early.Taking a bath or shower, listening to music, reading, or trading massage with your partner can help you fall asleep easier.Reserve the bedroom for bedroom activities only if you want to lower the temperature in your sleep environment.You are more likely to feel positive when you go to sleep earlier.You are less likely to set off a negative chain reaction if you hit the snooze button five times.

Step 11: A to-do list can be created.

If you can’t remember what the day’s agenda is, you’re discombobulated in the morning.Prepare a to-do list the night before to counteract the morning rush.Make a note of the most important tasks that need to be done the next day.It is likely that you will sleep better during the night and feel more prepared in the morning.

Step 12: The night before, lay out your clothes.

It bears repeating, but you have probably heard this before.To send a message to the world that you are a person of intention, you need to dress well the day before.Throwing on the first thing you see in the closet leaves you open to being wrinkled, stained, or mismatched.

Step 13: It’s a good idea to de-clutter.

Intentional living supports your mental, physical, and emotional health and well-being.It won’t help you start your day off intentionally if you scramble through your apartment over shoes and keys.You can have a stress-free morning by sorting and organizing your belongings.Set a timer for 15 minutes and you will be able to pick up trash and clean up in your home.You will be happy to know that it makes a difference when you get to work on time.
