How to Have the Best Intentions – Literally!
Mindfulness matters, especially when it comes to completing tasks effectively—without stress. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
While goal-setting defines what you want to accomplish in the future, intention-setting defines how you wish to move through the present. Set an intention
as a way to manifest how you'd like to feel day-to-day. Perhaps you'd like to approach each experience with curiosity or to be proactive with energy management—your intention is up to you!
Proactively pump up your "to-do" list:
One way to soothe deadline anxiety is to decide in advance when you will accomplish specific tasks. Have a presentation next Friday? Block off time today in next week's schedule for preparing and rehearsing. To make planning your tasks, deadlines, and schedules even easier, consider a weekly template
that is easy to replicate week after week. Didn't get to that one item (okay, two...)? Move it to next week's list.
The stress of transition can take its toll. While easy to overlook, self-care should be your number one priority
. Yes, even with a packed calendar! Taking care of yourself enables you to fully invest yourself in your commitments from a place of strength. Put you on your to-do list: Take a bubble bath, go for a hike, or book a weekend getaway with your best friend.
