Publisher's Summary

“I’m trying to meditate one day but urgent thoughts keep intruding. Don’t forget to take cupcakes to school! I have to prepare for my presentation for the wellness conference! Is that lunch with the other moms tomorrow or next week? My to-do list is stampeding through my mind, trampling any chance of tranquility. I feel overwhelmed, yes, but there’s more: I feel…guilty. Guilty that I’m taking on too much, guilty that I’m not doing anything well, guilty that I’m giving short shift to my kids, my husband, my job. And what about you, Mallika? a quiet voice asks. How are you shortchanging yourself?” 

Living with Intent is a chronicle of Mallika Chopra’s search to find more meaning, joy, and balance in life. She hopes that by telling her story, she can inspire others with her own successes (and failures) as well as share some of the wisdom she has gathered from friends, experts, and family along the way — people like her dad, Deepak, as well as Eckhart Tolle, Marianne Williamson, Arianna Huffington, Andrew Weil, and Dan Siegel. She also provides a practical road map for how we can all move from thought to action to outcome. Each chapter is devoted to one step on her journey and another piece of her INTENT action plan: Incubate, Notice, Trust, Express, Nurture, and Take Action. Chopra’s insights and advice will help us all come closer to fully living the lives we truly intend.

Critic Reviews

"More and more, people realize the value of approaching life with a mindful, purposeful spirit. With this insightful and often funny memoir, Mallika Chopra gives ideas and encouragement to anyone who wants to live with intent." (Gretchen Rubin, best-selling author of The Happiness Project and Better Than Before)

"Clearly, Deepak is not the only lifestyle sage in the Chopra family. Mallika is warm, wise, and witty and Living with Intent is a wonderful and helpful read."(Don Miguel Ruiz, best-selling author of The Four Agreements)

"Mallika Chopra is a refreshingly honest writer who shares her transformative journey from stress, fear, doubt, overwhelm, procrastination and guilt into a life of true happiness and self-acceptance. This brilliant book provides a template of gentle, doable, baby-steps that will take you by the hand and lead you to living a joyful life. Reading this book is like having the world's best friend on speed dial." (Arielle Ford, author of The Soulmate Secret)

Relatable!

I picked this book because it's by a female Chopra, why not?! But it's so much more. Mallika is relatable and admits to struggles like me! Highly recommend.

Decent Book & Performance

The quality of the voice is not pleasant nor is it relaxing to listen & enjoy for my listening preference.
The writing style (grammar & flow) is decent. The book reads like a journal & a high school (not grad school) term paper (which is not bad but also not great).
The plot (content) holds decent & simple truths (nothing profound). Sharing her journey in life is a very nice way for her to connect with others going through similar situations in order to normalize certain life stresses; she did a lovely job in this regard.

Just Okay

The narrator just describes her personal journey, rather than broadly talking about intent. Many of the stories ramble on topics that are just related to personal life stories about the author, not ones that are in any way applicable to the reader.

I felt like Mallika knew me. An honest, inspirational book. :)

As a 44 year old, married mother of two, this book gave me some perspective that I'll always cherish. (And you don't have to be into meditation to appreciate its wisdom!) Though now I might give it a try...

I intend to share this book with others!

This was an excellent book filled with personal stories and concrete examples of how to live with intent.

Mallika is very relatable and I recognized myself in her struggles as a professional and as a mother. I can't recommend this book enough!!!

Real, timing was no accident!

This was Malika’s real words , I as mother of 3 grown children was able to relate to, let me know even she had struggles typical “mom”s have… then having Deepak’s afterwards giving such regard and honor (thank you☺️) to motherhood as a profession!👍🏼🙏🙌🏾
This is a very good go-to book for getting unstuck! In any small way!
