An Introduction to Intentional Living
Intentional living. You’ve heard the phrase. But what’s it all about? How can you accomplish it? What are the physical, mental, and brain benefits of intentional living?
What is Intentional Living?
Intentional living refers to a lifestyle that involves identifying your values and priorities in life and then living every day of your life in alignment with them. We live in a world that’s busier than ever. There’s an endless cycle of hurry, hurry, hurry. It’s easy to get so caught up in hurrying from one thing to the next that we don’t stop and think about whether we’re really living our lives the way we want. Intentional living involves making conscious choices and taking action to get to where you want to be in your life; defining what you want and making a plan to get to that point.
Benefits of Intentional Living
What are the benefits of living your life in an intentional way? Here are just a few:
- Being Present – You’re present in the everyday moments and more aware of the good things in your life.
- Better Relationships – Living intentionally helps boost the quality of our relationships.
- Creates Boundaries – Intentional living involves creating boundaries, so you’re not saying yes to everything that comes your way. It helps you avoid energy drains and toxicity.
- Improved Mental and Emotional Health – When you start to live intentionally, you realize how essential it is to care for your physical, mental, and emotional wellness, and this trickles into every area of your life.
Being present, improved relationships, boosting mental and emotional health — those are all great ways to boost overall brain health. And as you work towards living more intentionally, don’t forget to be more intentional about taking care of yourself. Want improved memory and brain health?
