When we are overwhelmed, trying new things, or attempting to keep it all together, we are in survival mode. Literally you are trying to make it through the day in one piece. How in the world could I even attempt to be intentional with my time, my thinking, and my business?

It’s no easy task, it takes lots of discipline. This is something we all struggle with in one shape or form. Normally the things we lack the most intentionality or discipline in are the things that we need the most…

Here are 3 tips to get you being more intentional and disciplined.
1. Start Small – nothing is worse than setting a huge intention and then realizing you’re setting yourself up for failure. Be real with yourself and start small. Making a to do list and prioritizing it. It can be that easy! Then check things off when you complete them. Dopamine hit for the win!

2. Set Goals – goals don’t have to be scary. Everyone needs something to work toward. We all have a to do list whether that be at work or home. Those are a type of goal setting. In this case, set your short-term goals. What are you going to accomplish in the next month or 2?

3. Be Disciplined – Ugh we hear it all the time, but being disciplined is being consistent, creating new habits, and really focusing on your goals! Oh, and action! Challenge yourself for 21 days – experts say it only takes 21 days to establish a new habit! Be intentional and make it count!

Now I have gotten better at being intentional, but here are a few things I’ve implemented to ensure I am able to stay intentional and disciplined.
1. Accountability partner – the hubby and I set goals, have to do lists, and share the responsibilities. Then we give each other permission to point things out when things aren’t going the way they should be. No judgement marriage here.

2. Having a strategy, a plan of action to prevent overwhelm. This involves research, asking others, and simply trial and error. 21 days to establish a new habit though so give it some time to work.

3. Investing in myself and my future by getting involved with Oola and their lifestyle framework. Balancing the 7 key areas of life!
