Welcome to La.Rue, the Ultimate Intentional Living & Lifestyle Blog. On the blog, you’ll find content dedicated to helping you change your life and achieve your dreams. Welcome to the Intentional Living blog, a piece of cornerstone and evergreen content to the La.Rue Brand. Today on La.Rue, I will help you understand what it means to truly live an intentional and full life; thus, reaching your absolute greatest potential and incredible success. If you are ready to begin changing your mindset, establishing a new lifestyle, and achieving your dreams, you’ve come to the right place. Because at the base of all of that change is understanding Intentional Living, then devising your plan of action to create your intentional life.
Intentional Living has been defined as creating a lifestyle based on one’s values and beliefs or self-improvement. Under the La.Rue Brand, Intentional Living means to define what your version of “live life to its fullest” means, and live that life every day. Essentially, you define what your version of “fully” means and create a lifestyle in which you live that life each day. This is what it means to live intentionally, with purpose and direction
– a sense of success and accomplishment each day pushing you forward to improve and succeed tomorrow. When you’re living intentionally, you’re always learning and growing, always looking for ways to better yourself and become the best possible version of yourself. So, are you ready to begin your intentional living journey?
The Five Pillars of Intentional Living
When developing the concept of Intentional Living within the La.Rue brand, I devised five central pillars of the lifestyle. 1. Mind & Body – Intentions set for Strengthening. 2. Career & Education – Intentions set for Growing. 3. Selfcare & Relaxation – Intentions set for Healing. 4. Lifestyle Development – Intentions set for Personal Improvement. 5. Experience – Intentions set for Action. Each of these Pillars is a central focus of building and living an intentional life. But, to truly live intentionally, you must set the foundation to grow and mature in all five pillars, not just one. At its day-to-day, living intentionally means waking up ready to tackle the day; you establish an effective morning routine and achieve small successes throughout your day. But at its core, you’re designing a new lifestyle for yourself that creates lasting intention, you’re creating new and positive habits, impactful routines, and re-developing your mindset.
When you live intentionally, you grow in your relationship with yourself. You become mindful of your role in your past and the effect it has on your future. You become more aware and present in your relationships, understanding who in your life is helping to uplift you. You’re more aware of your feelings and how to address them. When you live intentionally, it doesn’t mean that your life suddenly becomes happy and perfect all the time. But you do become more aware of how to handle your bad or difficult days. When you “sit” in your feelings, address and understand why you’re feeling a certain way, you’re able to come out the other side more in alignment with your true self. You’re able to set intentions for your future self that will better the version of the self you are today. That is what it means to live intentionally.
The Intentionally Living Guide
If you’re just beginning, in the middle of, or in full swing of your intentional living journey, the La.Rue brand has every possible resource and tool you could need. If you’re just beginning and you’d like to ease in, start with the Intentionally Living Guide (available for download below). This guide is designed to help you set intentions for each pillar of Intentional Living. It’s a monthly guide you’ll fill out to set intentions for 30 days. Begin each intention with I will… and write your intention—keeping in mind the pillar and its intention. For example, Mind/Body is Strengthening: so, you’d write an intention that you feel will strengthen your mind/body from day-to-day. This intention could focus on your energy levels, mindset, etc. You’ll do this for all five pillars establishing the foundation for your intentional life.
