Do you find yourself waking up and just going through the motions? Or waiting all week for the weekend to come? Do you wonder how other people are out there living the life you would love to live?
I dare you to ask yourself this question: how much of my life am I living intentionally?
I know you want to dare more in your life so I want to share some tips that have been
instrumental in helping me to become more productive, successful, and happy each day.

2. Do something active.
I have never been an early morning workout person and still struggle with this. I recently heard a quote by motivational speaker and author Mel Robbins that really resonated with me – “You are never going to feel like it – but do it anyway.” I frequently remind myself of this because I don’t feel like it.

or another meditation app to help motivate you.
4. Plan out your day.
Figure out what your goals are for the day, including how you want to show up with your significant other, friends, family and/or coworkers. This will help you do what is truly important and steer clear of things that are a waste of time. If you only make one change after reading this I would plan your day.
