If you are mindful of what productive people mostly commit themselves to, you will admit that it is taking charge of their lives – from the slightest of things such as the hours they sleep, their preference of food, up to their choice of career, spouse and relationships. They take responsibilities for their day-to-day activities and that is exactly what intentional living encompasses.
It is, you making conscious choices and deliberate decisions about your life purpose, so that what you do each day enables you to focus on what’s really important.
So, whether you are a career woman, a mother, an unmarried sister or a young girl, you must be able to answer these important questions about yourself to get a full grasp of intentional living.
- What do I want in life?
- Why do I want it?
- What are my values, dreams, priorities and goals?
Answering these questions will enable you to know the things that truly matter and how to ads value to your life. Secondly, you let go of unhappy things that bring you down, things that distract you, things that take away your attention from important relationships (such as bonding with our child, your spouse and friends) and clog up your mind.
You do not deserve to be a busy bee with no results or achievements to show for it. There are plethora of benefits that comes with intentional living and some of them are what I will be explaining to you today.
- Intentional living makes you focused
One of the most significant benefits of living an intentional life is the clarity it gives when it comes to making decisions. The world we live today can be so confusing, that you can easily lose direction and value if you are not focused.

Nothing truly satisfies in this life except living a life of purpose and meaning. If you want to be free from the rat race, you have to sit down and analyze who you are and what you want from life. Intentional living will guide you on what you need to live your most profitable life.
