Mindfulness verses Intention

Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment,” according to the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California, Berkeley.

But while focusing on the present is a wonderful thing, sometimes we need to focus on our future. Write your intentions down

In “Change Your Intention to Focus Your Attention” (Harvard Business Review – January 10, 2014), author Caroline Webb says, “when we take the briefest of moments to set clear, positive intentions for what we’re doing, the payback is enormous. We can make a remarkable shift in how any assignment, conversation, or meeting feels just by considering where we want to place our attention.”

Intention involves planning and forethought.

The sound of an innerSpirit Rattle will help clear your head. The design will help you focus on your intention. Be grateful for what’s already come your way, and for clear thoughts of where your path is going. Keep one nearby – on a shelf, a desk, or a bedside table – to remind you of your motivation for the day.
