Here are some easy tips that you can incorporate into your daily life to help you cope with everyday stresses, as well as help you thrive in life, no matter how busy your day may be.
Tip #1: Fuel your body first thing in the morning
You can’t get your car going, even if it's a Mercedes Benz, if you don’t have fuel in it. In the same manner, we need to also start out your day witha tall glass of water and some great supplements. I suggest you do the following: Drink 1-2 oz of Ningxia Red (mixed with 4 ounces water). Also, get your omega-3s with either a tablespoon of MindWise or 2-4 Omegagize capsules. Bonus thriving tip: add a teaspoon of Sulfurzyme powder to your NingXia Red (and maybe a few drops of Lime oil).
Tip #2: Fuel up throughout the day.
Life gets busy, but we need to make sure our body is boosted every few hours so that we have the energy to keep going. In addition to drinking lots of water to stay hydrated (hydration helps us stay energetic), take a tube of Nitro with you and drink it mid-afternoon, when you feel that slump. Simply put it in your water bottle, add a couple of drops of Lime (for extra yumminess) and fill with 6-8 oz water and some ice. Shake up and enjoy. It's a better boost than a chocolate bar or a cup of Starbucks coffee!
Tip #3: Use or Diffuse your favorite scents daily
Peppermint is invigorating. Lemon brings out a freshness in the air and helps us concentrate. Orange is very relaxing, as is Peace and Calming. The scent of Joy reminds us to be joyful no matter what is going on around us; valor reminds us to be courageous when we are feeling fearful (a synonym of valor is courage). Think about how you are feeling and use or diffuse an oil for that particular occasion, no matter where you may be. You will find your favorites the longer you are with Young Living!
Tip #4: Take Thieves Waterless hand purifier wherever you go.
You never know when you will need to clean up your hands! Easier to put a bit of this purifier on your hands then stand in line to wash your hands in a public restroom.
Tip #5: Get all your personal use and cleaning products from Young Living
It’s so much simpler to order our daily use products on the Essential Rewards than it is going to store and purchasing them, always making sure that we get products that will enhance our health. Okay…. sometimes Young Living runs out of some of the products because they’re so popular and we are growing so quickly, I get it, but …. as much as we can, let’s swap out our personal use and cleaning things and add them to our Essential Rewards monthly package. They have so many different categories now…. Even a make up one now! (Savvy Minerals) And if you have a new baby or toddler… They have a whole baby line of products as well. **Bonus tip: don’t wait until you’re completely out to order a new bottle of something; look into ordering as soon as you are half way down the current bottle. It will save you some grief (in case YL is out of stock later)
Tip #6: Take a few of your favorite oils with you everywhere you go
You never know when you may need one! Some I recommend you consider taking with you would be either Lavender or Frankincense, Peppermint, and Thieves. If there is an emotional oil you love smelling throughout the day…. like Valor, Joy or Stress Away…. definitely take that one with you and apply a drop or two on the back of your neck at any time.
