Wellbeing Recipe: Live With Intention

Unlocking Workplace Wellness: The Transformative Power of Corporate Chair Massage in Chicagoland's Suburbs

Hey there! Can we just take a moment to appreciate the power of living life with intention? Imagine this: instead of cruising through life on autopilot, we’re steering our ship with purpose.

Think about self-care, for instance. It’s not just about going through the motions, right? It’s about really feeling the warmth of that cup of tea in your hands, or savoring every bite of that delicious meal. When we’re intentional about self-care, we’re basically giving ourselves permission to thrive.

And work-life balance? We all know how easy it is to get magnetized into the work vortex and forget that there’s a whole world outside those office walls. But setting boundaries, that’s where balance happens. It’s like saying, “Hey, work, I love you, but I’ve got a date with my family tonight.” Trust me, it’s a game-changer.

Now, let’s talk well-being. Ever heard of the power of gratitude? It’s like a superpower we all have, but often forget to use. Taking a moment each day to count our blessings, whether it’s the sun shining through the window or the smell of freshly cut grass, can totally shift our perspective. 

And you know what’s the best part? It’s not about doing everything perfectly. Nope, it’s about showing up for yourself, even when things get messy. Starting small, celebrating the wins, and being kind to yourself when you stumble – that’s the secret ingredient.

So, my friend, why not give it a whirl? Let’s dive into this adventure of intentional living together. Because every little choice we make with intention brings us closer to a life that’s full of joy, purpose, and all the good stuff. Are you in?

We already agreed that living a life of intention versus living on autopilot can make a significant difference in various aspects of your life, including self-care, work-life balance, and overall well-being. Let’s delve into the benefits and some practical examples:


  1. Mindful Eating: Instead of mindlessly consuming food, practice intentionality by being fully present while eating. Notice the flavors, textures, and how your body feels as you eat. Did you notice that some foods look like some organs? For example walnuts look like brain. If you know about some benefits of a particular food try to incorporate that while you chew it. As an example: “I eat this apple to increase my fiber intake and help me lose weight.” Last but not least remember to chew every bite enough (20 times). You will feel full with less food and you will help the digestion and absorption of nutrients. This helps in fostering a healthier relationship with food and prevents overeating.

  2. Regular Exercise Routine: Set specific intentions for your exercise regimen. Whether it’s going for a morning run (to increase heart rate to a certain number/ or start everything flowing better in your body/ etc), practicing stretching (to increase flexibility/ or to improve posture/ etc), or hitting the gym (to lose weight/ or to increase muscle mass / etc). Having a clear intention to prioritize physical activity with focused purpose helps in staying consistent and reaping the benefits of exercise.

Work-Life Balance:

  1. Setting Boundaries: Intentionally delineate your work time from your personal time. For instance, establish a rule to avoid checking work emails after a certain hour. This helps in preventing burnout and allows for quality time with loved ones.

  2. Prioritizing Tasks: Instead of reacting to whatever comes your way, set intentions for your workday by identifying the most important tasks. This helps in focusing your energy on what truly matters, thereby increasing productivity and reducing stress. Some examples of prioritizing strategies include: Eisenhower principle, Covey matrix, and the action priority matrix.


  1. Gratitude Practice: Intentionally cultivate a sense of gratitude by starting or ending your day with a gratitude journal. Write down things you’re thankful for, no matter how small. This practice shifts your focus towards positivity and enhances overall well-being.

  2. Meditation and Observation: Incorporate intentional practices into your daily routine. Set aside a few minutes each day to practice meditation, focusing on your breath, observing your thoughts or bodily sensations. This helps in reducing stress, improving focus, and fostering emotional resilience.

Tips for Consistency:

  1. Start Small: Begin with manageable goals to avoid feeling overwhelmed. For example, commit to a five-minute mindfulness practice or a short daily walk before gradually increasing the duration.

  2. Create a Routine: Incorporate your chosen habits into your daily routine. Consistency is easier to achieve when activities become habitual. For instance, if you intend to drink more water, make it a habit to have a glass of water with every meal.

  3. Track Your Progress: Keep track of your efforts and progress. This could be through journaling, using habit-tracking apps, or simply marking off each day on a calendar when you successfully stick to your intentions. Celebrate your achievements, no matter how small.

  4. Stay Flexible: Understand that setbacks are a natural part of the process. Instead of being discouraged by occasional slip-ups, view them as opportunities for learning and growth. Be kind to yourself and recommit to your intentions each day.

By living with intention, you take an active role in shaping your life according to your values and priorities. Embrace the power of intentionality in self-care, work-life balance, and well-being, and watch as it transforms your life for the better. Start today, and remember that every intentional choice brings you closer to a happier and healthier life.
