The Power of Intention

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, and welcome to your Daily Mindfulness.

Today, I'm going to talk

about intention setting.

So after taking some time to

practice meditation each day,

we're really in a perfect state

to set an intention for the day.

Our body's more grounded, our

mind and heart and more receptive.

So a really powerful way to close

meditation practice before you

move is just to take a moment

or two to ponder a question.

Like, what matters most to me today?

Or perhaps, how do I want to

show up in the world today?

And then just taking some time

to tune into your answers.

Perhaps what comes to mind are

qualities like kindness, gratitude,

playfulness, or patience.

Maybe you know there's a hard conversation

coming up that day, so perhaps it

comes to mind that you'd like to be

authentic, but also understanding.

So you can set an intention to spend more

quality time with a loved one, or look

after your mind and body a bit better.

It doesn't need to be an elaborate

answer that you come up with.

Sometimes you can simply call

to mind a word or a phrase that

you say silently to yourself.

But whatever comes to mind, truly

having a sense of letting that intention

settle into your being and take root.

So by acknowledging what matters

most to you each morning, or each day

in this way, you cultivate a really

incredible inner strength, clarity

of purpose so you can meet each

day with the best of who you are.

I'm going to invite you to give

this a try in today's meditation.

And if you find this really useful, this

practice, you might like to favorite

this meditation, so you can come

back to it as often as you'd like to.

As always, thank you for your practice

and your presence here in this community.

Let's settle in for meditation now.
