Set Your Intention And Get More Done, Before Someone Else Set An Intent For You.
The weekend is a time of rest and relaxation, well it can be with good planning. Like the quote says up above set your intent before someone else does.If your running a home base business like many people today, those who aren’t just assumes that your not working and that you have time for them and their earns.
“Every burden is a blessing.” – Walt Kelly
Yes! Working from home gives me time to hang out with my husband and our kids, but I still have things to do and work that needs to get done. So, what can I do about it; other than complain.
“One advantage of talking to yourself is that you know at least somebody’s listening.” – Franklin P. Jones
I start off by only stating out loud what I actually want to happen. I want to help provide for my family, I want my kids to be safe at school and I want the work I do to be great quality according to my own high standards.
“It is not good enough for things to be planned – they still have to be done; for the intention to become a reality, energy has to be launched into operation.” -Walt Kelly
It’s Sunday! So, I write out my todo list for the week, Put stars by the 3 that I would feel really happy about when they get done. Making my list sets my intent. I motivate myself by saying “If you do it then it will be done.” So, the faster I write out the list, the closer I am to completing my tasks.

Hello! I'm Ericka Bates. I am a wife and mother of 2. Totally nosey with the ability to read. Therefore a great researcher. Things I like to look into autism treatments, health, meditation, and personal development. In much of my findings with autism, stress came up a lot. Stress turned out to be the cause for most health problems. Know what can defeat stress? Meditation! Meditation is not only a great way to get rid of stress, but it's also used to reduce anxiety, depression, anger, lower blood pressure and increase your creativity. There are many forms of meditation and right now I am actively practicing 4. I sit quietly and watch my breath. At first this was hard. My mind kept wondering, I was sitting in thought. Now my mind still wonders some, but I think that I'm getting the hang of it. Hey, practice makes perfect right. Walking is my favorite form of meditation. I listen to a podcast while walking and when I'm done I feel relaxed. Gratefulness or Gratitude is another good one. When I get upset, I stop and think okay, what's five things that's good about this situation. This calms me down and makes me feel better. Like the saying goes happiness is a choice and I wanna be happy. Happiness just doesn't show up you have to produces that kind of energy for yourself. Visualization is the fourth form of meditation I practice. I have a vision board with pictures of the things I want and the things I want to do. The pictures are fun to find, cut out, arrange, pin up and their nice to look at every day. Because your only choosing the things you like and want to do makes this form of meditation a joy to have in your life. It wasn't hard making meditation a part of my every day life. Now I feel that meditation is the foundation to anyone's personal development. Hopefully you'll find a form or forms of meditation that's just right for you too.

My biggest intent for this week was to write an article and I did it! Thanks to my husband who pushes me to complete my goals faster. Now, on to the next tasks.
