What does living intentionally mean?

I’m going to make a list of a few things living intentionally will mean to me. These are a mix of ways I want to live intentionally and goals / hopes of results of living intentionally.

  • taking advantage of down time
  • going for small walks
  • reading a book
  • sitting in silence
  • when the time comes to do work, focus on it and get it done efficiently
  • this should help leave more time for doing things that fulfill me, and decrease the amount of time I spend thinking about what I should be doing instead of being present.
  • using free time for improving lifestyle habits
  • meal planning
  • Excercise
  • buying/consuming vegetables 😛
  • finding a job that I love and helps me to grow
  • buying a house somewhere that makes me happy
  • ensuring the time that I spend with others is truly quality time
  • making the effort to phone friends and family and stay connected

I think that’s a good start.

What are ways that you choose to live intentionally? What are the results you want from your living?


Lethargy. How do you stay motivated?

My last few workouts have felt rather uninspiring. Add to the fact that I’m not dropping lbs as I had hoped, I’m starting to feel lost, overwhelmed, and lethargic.

When I get to my workout I can’t seem to get in the zone. I love the feeling where your brain just kind of relaxes and your body takes over, your mind almost meditating. That’s the best workout feeling ever. I can’t seem to get in that zone which is frustrating in itself.

I don’t know what the cause is. Maybe I’m not getting enough sleep. Maybe I need to eat more nutritious food instead of simply calorie counting. If I figure it out I will post about it.

How do you get in the zone? How do you snap out of a spell of de-motivation?
