How to level-up your partying by setting an intention
As a powerful neurological hack, intention setting is a simple method for ensuring that your actions and activities are performed in a conscious manner.
Why is this important to raving? Well, if you can predetermine what it is you want to achieve from a night out, you’re more likely to get there. Clear focus, drive and will are highly effective ways to ensure that you can get what you want, as demonstrated by behavioural science.
THE POWER OF THE MIND
Intention setting has a direct impact on neural pathways, firing them up with instructions and guidelines. The power of the mind can be harnessed to create positive outcomes in every aspect of life. You can literally train your brain to respond how you want it to, by instructing it consciously. In the field of neuroplasticity, this is one of many findings. Over time new neural paths are created, and reinforced by your intentions, therefore negative and positive thoughts correlate directly to your lived experience.
HOW TO SET AN INTENTION
Next time you’re planning a night out, take some time to think about your intentions and write them down. Then use these to create little mantras that are easy to remember and assert that what you want to happen is already happening.
It could be as simple as, “I am having a positive experience”, “I take regular breaks”, “I look out for myself”, “I am centred and grounded”. The more you repeat your mantras, with conviction, the more likely they are to happen.
KEEP IT SIMPLE
Simplicity and belief are essential to making your intentions a reality. With these intentions as a baseline, your party experience is certain to be more conscious and a lot more rewarding.
