Intentional Living: What is it, and why do you need it?
Are you ever unable to be present at the moment and more mindful of what is happening? Instead, you become entangled in your thoughts and live in fear.
Are you prone to living your life on auto-pilot, going through the motions but not knowing where you want it to take you?
Are you still feeling overwhelmed, burnt out and overworked when you try to incorporate self-care into your daily life?
You may know that you want to make positive changes.
If any of these statements resonate with you, you should learn how to live an intentional lifestyle.
You are bombarded with advertisements every day that tell you how you live, how you dress, how you think, and how you be. It is no wonder that we sometimes feel like our heads spin.

What is Intentional Living?
This is it:
Intentional Living is a lifestyle that brings more awareness to your daily life.
– Intentional Living means that you can learn to turn off the ‘autopilot mode’ and make conscious decisions that align with your core values, dreams, and definitions of happiness.
A holistic, wholehearted approach to living a more intentional lifestyle is essential to be able to “BE” every day. It connects you to your body, mind, emotions, spirit, and personal energy – helping you live a happier, more fulfilled, and more joyful life.
Intentional Living means focusing on what you can control and not what is beyond your control. This allows you to relax, let go of worry and anxiety, and instead tune into the moment.
Intentional Living is about being the best version of yourself. It’s about how you show up every day for your future and present self. It involves making conscious decisions and taking the right actions to create the life you want.
Why is it important to live intentionally?
As many of you already know, mental health and emotional well-being are becoming a major problem in the world.
People are in trouble.
All of us experience mental illness, regardless of whether we are diagnosed.
Adults are in trouble
Adolescents are in trouble
Our children are suffering.
Study results show that 1 out 3 teens will suffer from an anxiety disorder. 63% feel overwhelmed by anxiety, and childhood mental illnesses rise.
To improve their health and well-being, people must invest in their EMOTIONAL WELLNESS. This will help them be a better person for their family, friends, and communities.
While many systemic problems in the world can affect our mental well-being, we must first focus on what we can change.
We cannot wait for the rest of the world to solve this problem for us. It is up to us to decide how to make today more meaningful and healthy for ourselves, so tomorrow’s change can be made.
It’s the old metaphor of airplane oxygen. It is the old metaphor of airplane oxygen. If we don’t first put on our oxygen masks, how can we be useful to anyone else?
You can create ripple effects in the lives of others by learning how to start within. If enough people do this, then we will see real change.
How do you achieve this? You can make a conscious effort to live a more focused life on your mental and emotional well-being and that of your family.
