Since the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis, we obviously had to make some changes in our lives. We all needed some time to plan and adapt but we now have a new routine.
What do you notice about this new routine?
What small changes did you make?
What was the most challenging?
Here are my observations :
we slow down
we renew our priorities, to focus on what matters most to us
we refresh our perspectives
we reconnect with ourselves and create new relationships
we simplify our life and learn how to live with less.
We are actually taking the first essential steps towards an intentional lifestyle without even knowing it.
But what will happen next? Are you willing to embrace this new lifestyle from now on, taking with you the best of it in your "after crisis" life?
Let me help you get some clarity about living an intentional life.
What is intentional living?
By definition "intentional" means: "done with intention or on purpose".
For me, intentional living is a way of being, a mindset, that allows you to make daily mindful choices that are aligned with your personal values, aligned with others and with the environment.
Intentional living is about simplifying our life down to what matters the most, emotionally and materially, and get the best out what you want in life. it's also having a clear vision of what you want and why.
Intentional living allows you to become a better version of yourself, to learn how to be flexible, open minded and true to yourself.
Why is it important?
Intentional living is an opportunity to live your life to the fullest
It's empowering! It's the best way to take control of your life and your choices.
It's impactful and contagious, it brings Joy around you and fuels your soul.
Intentional living will help you get a better sense of balance in your life and grow your mindset.
"Find your purpose - your whys - and you'll find the greatest way to make a difference" - J.C Maxwell
