The New Year is here and I’m sure you all have been good little goal setters and have your resolutions in place. I happen to love New Year’s resolutions, even if like 90% of people don’t keep them…which by the way is because you can’t just set goals, you have to create an action plan too…but that’s another blog for another day.
Today I want to share with you how Young Living can help you accomplish the 10 most common New Year’s resolutions.
1. Get Fit
Essential oils and products containing them can help you in your fitness goals.
Post-workout apply Deep Relief, Cool Azul, or Ortho Sport massage oil to prevent and ease sore muscles.
You can get the fabulous Active and Fit Kit to help you work out even harder and recover even faster. Cross Fit anyone??
Combine ½ cup of coconut oil with 10 drops each of PanAway, Copaiba, and Peppermint to create your own soothing muscle rub.
2. Lose Weight
Young Living has an entire group of products, the Slique line, that is especially formulated for healthy weight management and comes in several convenient forms: Oil, Gum, Bars, and Tea.
3. Worry Less
I get it. Life is STRESSFUL. Work, family, bills, obligations…it can all add up to something overwhelming. The following oils are my favorite to diffuse when I need to just breathe.
4. Quit Smoking
It’s not easy to quit, but this could be THE BEST resolution for you and your loved ones. Essential oils are here to help!
Do you have something big to save for? Kid’s college? Retirement? Dream vacation? Young Living has essential oils formulated to help get your mind right when it comes to thinking about money.
Now lets talk about some tips outside of oils. Current Young Living members: If you haven’t already enrolled in the loyalty program called Essential Rewards, think about it! You earn 10-25% back from your purchases to be used as money to buy more products. If you’re already consistently buying product, you should be doing it through this program to earn FREE money toward oils.
Also if you’re a member and sharing your love of oils, you may find that others want to know more about it or buy oils from you! Young Living is a referral based business and they will pay you for doing what you’re already doing…sharing your love of oils! You can read up on the compensation plan here. If you’re interested in joining my team, reach out to me! I promise it’s a no pressure thing. I do not believe in hounding, chasing, or begging?
6. Bring Back That Loving Feeling
Let’s face it, sometimes the flames of passion dissipate of over time. Work, kids, chores and the daily stresses of life can get in the way of romance and passionate connection.
Sensation™ is a wonderfully fragrant, powerfully romantic blend that is extremely uplifting and refreshing. It was formulated to enhance the enjoyment of special moments. Use this with a carrier oil to create a romantic massage!
Ylang Ylang has a mild floral scent and is commonly used as an aphrodisiac and is great applied topically or when diffused.
7. Focus/Be Present
This is a big one for me! With a six year old, running a business and hobbies like crafting and writing, organization and focus is vital. Essential oils can do wonders for enhancing focus, memory and motivation.
Young Living has some amazing supplements for this area too! Sometime around my midday meal, I like to take advantage of a few cognition-supporting supplements. NingXia Nitro is the perfect quick pick-me-up without the sugar or caffeine overload. Infused with essential oils, botanical extracts, D-ribose, Korean ginseng, and green tea extract, NingXia Nitro supports alertness, as well as cognitive and physical fitness.
I also like to use MindWise, Young Living’s advanced brain wellness serum. Providing vitamin D, CoQ10, ALCAR, and GPC, MindWise is a great go-to supplement for supporting your mind and memory.
8. Follow Your Passion
If you’re feeling stagnate or regret not making something important happen for yourself in the past few years, 2017 is the year to make it happen. Maybe you’ve always wanted to go back to school or turn your hobby into a business or learn a new skill!
There are several blends that have been created to stimulate this area of your life. Gary Young formulated Build Your Dream™ essential oil blend in 2014 to celebrate the landmark achievement of Young Living setting the standard for quality, purity, and effectiveness in the essential oils industry for 2 decades. This unique and powerful commemorative blend includes significant oils that highlight Young Living’s 20-year journey of helping individuals discover profound and lasting transformations, improve their health, and change lives around the world!
Maybe essential oils are your passion and hobby. Try hosting a class! It is so fun to get together with friends and share information! If this interests you, shoot me a message.
9. Eat Healthy
Maybe Young Living is not the first thing you think of when it comes to a healthy diet, but yes, there is an oil – or 2 or 3 – for that! Not only are there oils, but there are nutritional supplements and food offerings as well.
Eating healthy always starts with cooking real whole foods in the kitchen. You can add essential oils in your favorite recipes that call for dried herbs, spices, or fruit juices. Simply replace these ingredients with the equivalent essential oil. Keep in mind that essential oils have a much stronger flavor than dried herbs and spices, so a much smaller amount is generally enough. We recommend starting out with small amounts of oil and then increasing the amount according to your own taste.
Young Living also offers a line of nutrient-rich beverages to help improve physical and mental function. NingXia Red is a daily nutrient infusion for health and wellness support. In addition to whole-fruit wolfberry puree and superfruit juices and extracts, it’s formulated with Orange, Yuzu, Lemon, and Tangerine essential oils. This drink is great for full body immunity support!
10. Sleep Better
What if I told you there was a way to dramatically improve your physical, emotional, and mental health all without lifting a finger? The answer is Sleep!
One of the best ways to meet your goals this year is to start with a good night’s sleep. Research has proven that people who don’t get enough sleep have bigger appetites (goodbye weight loss resolution) and that being awake 16 straight hours decreases your performance as much as if your blood alcohol level was .05% (that’s almost the legal limit!)
It’s easy to see how waking up well-rested would be a huge help in achieving your exercise goals, while also giving you that boost to get organized or quit smoking.
Unfortunately sleeping soundly is easier said than done, but check out the all-natural options from Young Living!
Lavender has long been used to promote rest and relaxation. Try a few drops in the diffuser or apply on the bottom of feet and behind your ears to ease off into slumber. Use lavender with Epsom salts for a relaxing bath before bed. Also found in the Kit, Stress Away is a wonderful blend to diffuse while sleeping.
Try Cedarwood. This is the first oil I bought after my kit and I still diffuse it every night for a more restful sleep.
Tranquil is a pre-mixed and diluted blend in a roll-on bottle. Just a quick swipe behind the ears and up the spine, and we’re all drifting off to sleep!
The New Year is a perfect time to get your Premium Starter Kit. It is 11 of the most popular oils (most are suggested in this post), a diffuser, and comes with a wholesale membership, which means 24% off future orders. If you’re ready to commit yourself and your family to a life that is filled with wellness, head on over to this post on getting started.
