Intent of the Day: Nighttime Routine

krista-mangulsone-53114

It’s hard to get going when you wake up needing a nap. It’s no surprise that with as fast as we’re moving, we would expect that falling asleep would be instantaneous and that we would be surprised when it wasn’t. What is the point of a nighttime routine? Much like it is with any other routine, it trains your body to know what to expect, culminating in restful sleep. It trains your brain to slow down and get ready to shut off instead of laying in bed with your mind racing. In order to be ready for the day, we intend to establish a nighttime routine.

Intent of the Day: A Little Quiet

oscar-dejean-14868

This morning has come and gone, and maybe it was a frantic mess. Maybe, like us, you rolled out of bed 30 minutes later than expected with 10 minutes to be somewhere. Maybe this isn’t the first time this has happened. It’s no surprise then when you feel tired, discouraged and running behind all day until you finally get to crash back into bed and start all over again. Doing something different is going to require intention. Our intent is to start the day with a little quiet and so we want to decide what patterns, habits and mindsets need to stay while we also consider which need to go.

We’re all very interested in things that will make us go faster, stronger, longer. We want to work harder, make more, go a little further and there is greatness that can come from endurance, but we also weren’t made to be machines. Even machinery needs rest and recovery. So do we. Before we run ourselves into the ground, we intend to take a nap.

Maybe you’ve just found yourself with a spare five minutes to your name. Celebrate, because it doesn’t happen every day. If you’re like us, maybe your first instinct was to seek out a forgotten task you could use to fill those five minutes. I mean, if we’ve got the time, might as well be productive, right? Before you rush off, we want to submit the idea that perhaps you just take those five minutes to rest. Perhaps you take those five minutes and just enjoy each of the 300 seconds as they come.

We intend to enjoy the break.

Why? Here are 3 parts of you that could use it: Continue reading

Intent of the Day: Rest Up

You might be on vacation but it doesn’t mean you’re coming back refreshed. If you spent your time with family and friends catching up on all the things you miss year-round, you’re not alone. If you’re anything like us, you’re exhausted and that is no way to enter a new year. We’re going to spend the last few days of 2016 trying to catch up on some zzz’s so we enter the new year ready and rested.

You too? Let us help you get a little rest: Continue reading

Take A Breather

fullsizerender

We’re halfway through holiday season and everything seems to be moving lightning fast. Is it possible to keep up? We’re going to suggest that maybe, in the midst of madness, we find a way to slow down. Slow down to remember where you are, what you’re doing and what matter. Slow down to re-evaluate. Slow down to appreciate. If no one invites you to take a breather, it doesn’t mean you can’t make it mandatory for yourself.

Our intent of the day is to take a breather.

Intent of the Day: Time to Rest and Heal

fullsizerenderResting can sounds like weakness. Those who really have what it takes never have to stop, right? In Western culture, we are taught the value of working harder and longer. It seems, as a result, we have forgotten the importance of resting. When we think we should keep going, remember that we are biologically wired to have need downtime. What happens when we don’t sleep? Frankly, it gets scary. So today our intent is to take the time we need to rest and heal.
