How are resolutions different from intentions? Mindfulness and self-talk are strategies that can increase your chance of success to do something differently.
Ask yourself: What do I want to do? How important is it to me? When will I do what I intend to do? Keep it simple and realistic.
For example, declare your intention to yourself. If I want to make sure that I eat healthy food instead of junkfood, I will start with setting my intention. I will close my eyes and state to myself “I intend to plan our dinners for the next week by 2pm today.”
As I plan my day, this intention will be top of mind and I’ll increase my chances of meeting my intention.
