Setting Intentions

Updated: Aug 27, 2019

Hello Gardeners!

A favorite phrase among #TheGardeningTeam is:

“if you can see it in your mind, you can hold it in your hand”

Setting intentions for our days, weeks, months, and years, not only helps us determine what we actually want, but it helps remind us to put work towards achieving our goals. Remembering to take time to set those intentions can be the one thing that prevents us from actually doing it. We have a few tips to form healthy, intention-setting habits for kids.

1. Follow a schedule. Whether you take time on the first day of the month, the start of a new moon, or every morning during breakfast, repetition is key to forming a habit.

2. Get an intention journal. Having a journal with one specific purpose helps keep you on track, rather than keeping your intentions in the same journal as poems, doodles, and notes. We have a craft for one below!

3. Date your intentions. Whether you are doing a daily intention or a monthly intention, dating your entries can motivate you to keep going!
