August Intentions | Reclaiming Yesterday

Do you create monthly intentions?

About 6 months ago I got into doing it. At the beginning of the month I sit down and really think about the changes I’d like bring into my life. Bad habits I’d like to break. New habits I’d like to solidify. Or just anything I want to manifest into reality.

It’s been an incredibly helpful practice for me. Not just identifying those things, but spending some time writing them down and looking at them every day.

To keep my intentions top of mind, I hang the list up by my vanity mirror, so I see them every morning. (every day that I brush my hair, anyway 😉)

It’s unbelievable to me how much of a difference this has made in me following through with the intentions I set at the beginning of the month.

I try to make my intentions:

Specific – It’s much easier for me to complete a specific goal than a vague one. Example: In August, I want to practice breathwork so I’ve set the intention to do it for 4 minutes a day.

Realistic – Because to really stick to something it needs to realistically fit into my life. The breathwork practice is a good example again. I figure 4 minutes of my day is manageable, and hard to make an excuse to skip.

Balanced – I’m always looking for ways to be the best version of myself – and that includes physically, mentally, spiritually, in relationships, etc. My intentions are usually a mix of all of those things.

Sharing Intentions

I didn’t come up with this practice of Intention Setting on my own. I saw Lee from America share her intentions on Instagram and I loved the idea. That inspired me to make it something I did each month, too.

I found it so helpful, that I wanted to share the intentions I was setting each month with the people in my life. (Here are the intentions I set in AprilMay, June, and July in case you’re interested)

Seeing and hearing what intentions other people are setting inspires me, which is why I wanted to share mine with you guys.

What are your intentions for August?? Set them and you will manifest them!
