Life is great, and to be enjoyed at your will. If you rolled your eyes or gave me the side eye in your head then this is for you. Life is what you make of it, literally. With all the negativity that surrounds us today-It takes intentional thinking to create positive ‘individualized’ outcomes.
You can slowly get it together by planning to do things that give your life purpose. Don’t over think it. Try these 3 simple ways to live a more intentional life.
1. You’re No Longer Open 24 hours – “You can’t be productive 24 hours a day.”
You are not a robot so don’t treat yourself like it. You have to recharge properly and There’s no electrical plug for that. Make time to do the things you want to do. That’s no secret right? Well here’s the tricky part, How much time give? In order to function properly you have to add in things like time to eat, sleep and family/friends time.
There is no way you can accomplish anything when you are constantly on the go. Don’t plan every second of your life. Choose your time wisely. Make a schedule that has all of your basic needs covered and your extra activities. If you know that your schedule only allows you to do things on the weekend or while the kids are in school, make sure to add those things in to make your days more productive.
2. Single-Tasking – “Take it one step at a time.”
Baby steps first, multitasking is not welcomed here. I know it sounds crazy because you could be getting so much more done, or so you think. If you cannot focus, you cannot achieve. Prioritize, Prioritize, Prioritize! Get what needs to be done based on how high something is on the priorities list. The higher it is on the list, the sooner it is to get it done. Once you have your list together, it becomes easier to create those single tasks that are the most rewarding.
3. Declutter – “There’s a place for everything, and everything has a place.”
You need to declutter your closets, files, and your mental baggage. Literally give yourself a break. Techniques like meditation and prayer have been found to lower stress levels and increase concentration. Use this time to detach yourself from your to-do list and daily thought and then you will find your true gems.
