I have a bit of a hippity-dippity question for you guys today: Do you set an intention before your workout? How about before you even start your day? What kind of energy and focus are you bringing to your fitness goals — and your life? I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. Some of it has to do with the fact that I’m meditating more (my foot is healed, but I’ve kept the daily meditation up!), and some of it is probably because I’m kind of addicted to all the Super Soul Sunday programming on OWN (told ya we were going hippity-dippity!). So when we got a couple of “Intention Bracelets” sent to FBG HQ a few weeks ago from Fierce Forward, I smiled. A bracelet that’s sole purpose is to help you set an intention — and then be reminded of that intention throughout the day? Brilliant.
Handmade and created using African trade beads, these inspirational accessories feature messages like run, do, focus, strength and energy. There’s even one to help you eat less sugar. They’re fashionable enough that they don’t look like they hold a special message (not corny at all!), but they do. I’ve been wearing the Purpose bracelet, along with a blue “Stack ‘Em” bracelet (FBG colors!), and I love how it adds a fun pop of color to any outfit — plus a gentle reminder to me to focus on my purpose.
I’ve had a few people compliment me on them (in fact, I wore them during this event to keep me focused on my — you guessed it — purpose), and I really just like wearing them. It’s a simple and easy reminder, and at about $20 for an intention bracelet, they’re pretty affordable — and they’re quality. Love ‘em!
