Make it easy to be a little bit more mindful each day:
An intention is not just a goal; it is the deeper meaning and feeling behind what you do. When used deliberately and for the highest good with joy, love, and/or appreciation, an intention is a powerful force that fuels the experience you seek. Sit quietly, close your eyes, and listen to your breath. Ask yourself, “What is my intention for my mindfulness journey?” Grab your notebook and write down your intention for this exciting first step into mindfulness practice.
Today, be aware of your breath throughout the day. Set your phone alarm to gently chime each hour on the hour or as often as you like or feel is optimal to fully experience this exercise. When the alarm chimes, stop and take a deeper breath, envisioning the cleansing air of renewal revitalizing your body. Be sure to honor yourself. If you turn the alarm off without taking a few moments to become aware of your breath, you will not be honoring yourself, which holds an energy of self-betrayal.
In Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll writes, “One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. “Which road do I take?” she asked. “Where do you want to go?” was his response. “I don’t know,” Alice answered. “Then,” said the cat, “it doesn’t matter.” In your notebook, journal about what this passage means to you. Would you be okay with not knowing which path was better? Would it not matter? Guide your life with intention or ride the wave. Either way, it’ll be an interesting journey.
