Discover simple daily habits to encourage mindfulness with the power of Young Living essential oils.
When it comes to creating a more balanced and mindful lifestyle, we often dive straight into the deep end, which becomes overwhelming, and often our attempts simply end up in the “too hard basket”. The best way to enhance your life is to incorporate small, simple habits into your daily routine.
Young Living believes essential oils are a powerful and natural way to bring more wellness into your life and by incorporating oils into your daily routine, you are setting yourself up for a happier, healthier and more productive day.
Essential oils have enhanced lives for thousands of years, offering a variety of benefits from cosmetic and dietary purposes to spiritual and religious use. Extracted through careful steam distillation, resin tapping or cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they come. Young Living has always been at the forefront of bringing this ancient tradition to modern users, introducing millions to emotional, physical and spiritual benefits that can be truly life-changing.
As you begin to incorporate these simple habits into your daily routine, essential oils can be a powerful tool to enhance your life and improve your overall wellbeing.
Create daily goals
Sometimes we’re not productive because we don’t know where to start. Take five minutes first thing in the morning to prioritise your day by creating a list of your daily goals and intentions. While planning, diffuse an inspiring blend like Young Living’s Envision to encourage an uplifting and inspiring atmosphere, helping to create clarity and focus.
If you could get only one task completed today, what would it be? Make that task our number-one priority. Keep your goals in mind by applying a few drops of essential oil to your wrists and neck throughout the day to keep you focused on the task at hand. Young Living’s Brain Power™ essential oil blend is uplifting, energising and invigorating, and can help with creating new ideas and boosting productivity.
Move your body
Regular exercise benefits nearly every aspect of your life. Among other positives, exercise can improve mood, boost energy and lead to better sleep, meaning a happier, healthier, more balanced you. Whether you’re lifting weights, walking the block or dancing with your friends, do something at least a few times a week to raise your heart rate and your spirits. Apply Young Living’s top seller, Peppermint essential oil, after your workout as it creates a cool, tingling sensation on the skin, which makes it a favourite for sports massage.
To keep grounded, bring yourself back to the present with a daily gratitude practice. You can do this by making a shortlist of what you’re grateful for; you’ll be surprised by how many things you can think of once you get started.
There is no need to write long gratitude lists. Simply take a few minutes out of your day to express appreciation for something, no matter how small. Incorporating essential oils into your gratitude practice can bring you a sense of peace. Place a few drops of Young Living’s Gratitude™ essential oil in the palms of your hands, rub your hands together, cup your hands around your nose and breathe in deeply a few times before you start writing. This oil is designed to quieten down, soothe and elevate the mind while bringing relaxation to the body.
A moment of meditation
Quiet your mind and invite peaceful feelings to each day with meditation. Creating a calming space for moments of reflection can significantly enhance your experience. Take a moment for yourself through a meditation practice — even just five minutes can set you up for a more grounded day.
Whether you have a room, nook or quiet corner, having an essential oils diffuser nearby is a great way to create a serene environment. Did you know that smell is the only sense connected to the limbic lobe, the emotional control centre of the brain? By simply inhaling aromas, you can positively affect your emotions and mood. Young Living’s Aria™ diffuser is a unique, stylish way to bring the benefits of essential oils into your home. Try diffusing pure essential oils that will invite grounding feelings like Young Living’s Highest Potential™; use this soothing blend to enhance self-confidence, connect with a higher purpose and focus on the positive.
The most effective way to create a balanced life is to continually focus on building better everyday habits at a sustainable pace. By incorporating the power of Young Living’s pure essential oils into your life, you are taking care of your mind, body and spirit.
