Have you heard about “intention setting?” Mondays, and mornings (and all other times, really) are the perfect times to do so.

What is an intention? Melissa Eisler at mindfulminutes.com describes it well”: “An intention is a guiding principle for how you want to be, live, and show up in the world—during meditation, yoga or any area of your life.”

“But an intention shouldn’t be confused with a goal—it’s not something you attach an expectation or evaluation to. It’s just something you want to align with in your life. It’s an aim, a purpose, or attitude you’d be proud to commit to.

Intentions must come from your heart, they are not the tangible “lose 10 pounds” or “get that promotion” kind of goals that you set. They are heart-driven and evoke feeling and purpose, like “practice being non-judgmental of myself and of others,” “send love out to the world,” “open my heart,” and “let go of fear…” Setting an intention is a way to bring your heart and mind into alignment.”

She also explains why setting an intention is so powerful: ” … it’s the first step to embodying that which you want. Wayne Dyer said, “Our intention creates our reality.” And how many times have you heard “What you think, you become,” or “Thoughts become things”?”  Finally, Eisler gives examples of intentions that you could start with, if one resonates with you:
