The best way to feel good about how you spent your day when you reflect at the end of it? The key is how you start it. Try beginning each morning with an intention for the day. Set a purpose to use as a goal. A tip for setting an intention: make it a way of being, and not a specific task. For instance, "today I will practice patience."
This is the perfect way to feel good at the end of the day and more valuable than finishing that never ending checklist of to-do items. Intentions are a way for you to be more proactive with being a better human being. Now that feels good!
