How to Live with Intention all Year

Divide and Pay Attention
This is a mindful approach to the well-known “divide and conquer” technique. Although the concept of mindfulness is omnipresent, not a lot of people truly practice it daily. Only by mindfully immersing in your environment and experiences frequently, will you be able to see the complete benefits of mindfulness.

Afterward, you start planning your meal. When you start eating, try to look at the food as the ultimate fuel for your body. Cherish each bite and embrace the nutrients that essentially make your body do what you want it to do.
Then, reach out to people around you. Whether it’s friends or family, try to realize the notion of how they make you a better person. Not them as objects, but your interactions with them is the precursor for mind and soul well-being.
