Here I am again with more of the Intentional Living content you love. Intentional Living is all about how you live your life and the actions you take to make it the best it can possibly be. That can also include the things or products you use in your life to elevate your intentional living. Do you remember those 5 Pillars of Intentional Living I mentioned on the blog where I expand on the content and purpose of the Intentional Living Guide? I set these pillars as the guide to living an Intentional Life. Each of them serves to improve the way you live your life and guide you to setting intentions with a purpose. For each of these pillars, I have chosen a specific product that I believe helps you elevate your life and improves the way you live, so let’s dive right in.
Mind & Body
Intentions set for Strengthening – Vitamins have become a part of many people’s daily routine. They help promote a healthy lifestyle, and so many of them can supplement for taking medication for things like hair growth, weight, skincare, and even help improve organ function and your overall health. Care/Of is a company created to help you curate a completely personalized set of daily vitamins backed by science and research made especially for you after taking an in-depth quiz about what you’d like to work on. It’s an incredible new service that formulates a set of vitamins for you to take every day that comes in an environmentally friendly box and packaging with an inspiring quote, thought-provoking question, or fun fact printed on the packing for you. Take the Care/Of Quiz today and use my code LLCT1P to receive 50% off your first order of monthly vitamins! It’s an incredible service that I have been utilizing for three months now, and I love it. I see a difference in myself, and I know the vitamins are doing their job!
Career & Education
Intentions set for Growing – As this blog grows and as you grow with me, you’ll see that something I preach OFTEN is organization. I think a tool you should have as a student and a career person is always a planner. Staying organized and always knowing what needs to be done is essential to being productive throughout the day. In a few short weeks I’ll do an in-depth blog just on planners, how to use them and why they are so incredibly important, but for now, I’m just going to share with you which one I love! I’ve been using Day Designer since I was a freshman in college. This planner has been my bible for the last several years and has always kept me organized. Day Designer sells its planners in the large and mini from Jan to December and for a school year from August to August. Now I know these planners are a little more on the expensive side, but I have never been able to find another that keeps me more organized and on track throughout the day.
Selfcare & Relaxation
Intentions set for healing – Selfcare is going to be a hot topic on La.Rue. The topic of self-care is so essential in today’s day, but it’s also incredibly important to know how to take care of yourself in a healthy way. We’ll dive into deep and heavy topics on the blog, but for today, I’m going to simply recommend to you a MIRICLE product I cannot go without. I’ve been using this Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue Cream since Christmas of last year, and I don’t go a day without it. When I tell you that it gets rid of my dark circles in about 5 minutes after application, I mean it. This magic eye cream makes my face look and feel refreshed and sits so nicely under makeup all day.
Intentions set for personal improvement – If you’re like me, making sure you’re drinking enough water throughout the day is hard. I have a tendency to drink two glasses of water and convince myself I had six for the day. I wanted to find a water bottle to show me how much I was drinking in a day. The Arc Water Bottle is not only attractive and sleek, but it tells me when I should be drinking water and where I should be throughout the day. This 32oz bottle is designed to get through twice a day, so 60oz. I drink one full bottle at the gym and then refill and start my time once I get home, so I get through roughly three bottles or 96oz of water a day. Once I started using this bottle, it became so much easier for me to know how much water I was putting into my body every day.
Intentions set for action – In a separate blog, The Importance of Journaling in 2020, I share with you how journaling has affected great change in my life and what specific qualities of journaling did this. Well, I’m back to tell you again how incredible this journal is; the 6-Minute Diary is a diary perfect for setting intentions for action. The diary allows you to look to your future but most importantly, it holds you accountable in your present so that you may achieve the goals you have set for yourself. This diary has a lot of great literature about habits, routines, and creating change in the first 66 pages; following that, you have pages upon pages to write down your day and see change over time in your attitude, habits, and life.
Intentional Living is all about creating change that’s best for you. If you see yourself struggling in one of these areas, ask yourself how you can make changes and see if maybe even one of these products can help. As always, you’re a goddess, keep thriving.
