5 Healthy New Habits & The Oils To Compliment Them
You've been wanting to break the bad habits and get back to feeling wonderful again you say?
Throw out bad behaviors and start with these 5 healthy habits today!
1. Get Up, and Get With It!
When it comes to exercise you may not feel like you have any energy left over after your workday – and you aren’t alone! In fact, the #1 reason people don’t get enough exercise is that they claim they simply don’t have the time. But what if I told you that you don’t have to hit the gym to gain the many health benefits of regular physical activity? It’s true! Health professionals recommend at least 15 minutes of moderate exercise every day – but that doesn’t mean that you can’t work it in with a little creativity! You can get those 15 minutes into your regular day by just choosing the parking spots farthest from the grocery store doors, or opting for the stairs instead of the elevator. Maybe even offer to take the neighbors dog for a long after-dinner walk. These simple changes in your everyday life can add up to thousands of burned calories and may even result in a few new friends. So don’t just stand there! Get up, get moving and get with it!
Essential oils to boost energy include: eucalyptus, peppermint, rosemary, and lemongrass.
2. Guzzle, Guzzle, Guzzle
Your diet is the MOST important thing when it comes to your health. No matter how many hours you spend exercising, you will never be able to burn off the negative effects of a poor diet. And there is one nutrient that you may not even realize you are lacking: Water. That’s right! Just plain H2O is vital to all body systems and every tiny little cell in your body. Without it you would store loads of toxins inside and ultimately, all systems would stop functioning. Getting the recommended amounts of water daily supports healthy skin, a fast metabolism, productivity, high energy levels and even your good mood! Don’t skimp on this good stuff.
3. Eat Real Food
There is nothing worse than constantly counting calories, or being obsessed with food labels. If you have tried to lose those lingering pounds around your waistline or other problem areas you may need to re-evaluate your relationship with food. There are thousands of junk foods out there today, and some of them may seem like they are health foods. Things like protein bars, cereals and even fruit juices can result in unwanted weight gain because of all the added sugar and artificial ingredients they contain. But if you have a weight loss goal that seems like you’ll never get there you may be focusing on the wrong thing… STOP looking at the number on the scale and START eating real food. As a general rule, anything that comes in a bag or a box is likely to result in weight gain. Anything that comes from nature (foods that do not have a label) is likely to nourish your body and support your goals. So eat up!
Essential oils to support healthy eating include: black pepper, caraway, cinnamon, and chili seed.
4. Breathe In, Breathe Out
Weight loss, traffic, hectic schedules, children, spouses, work… and the list goes on and on. Don’t worry about it! Just take a long, deep breath. Go ahead… I’ll wait. That’s it. Inhale. Fill your lungs, and now release that breath. Feel better? Me too. It’s a fact that deep breathing reduces stress levels almost immediately and can even boost your immune system. Take a few minutes every day to simply observe your breath. Your body, mind and spirit will thank you.
Essential oils for deep breathing include: Breathe blend, tea tree, frankincense and fir needle.
5. Sleeping Beauty
It’s estimated that about 40 million people suffer from some sort of chronic sleep disorder. If you are one of them you probably already know how important a good night’s sleep really is. If you’re waking during the night, or just can’t get into bed at a decent hour after a long day it’s time to make some changes! Sleep experts suggest turning off all lights at the same time every night (this includes mobile devices), lowering the thermostat, and purchasing high-quality bedding can help restore your restful sleep pattern.
Essential oils for better sleep include: vetiver, Roman chamomile, and sandalwood.
ESSENTIAL OILS AS PART OF YOUR HEALTHY, HAPPY LIFESTYLE
Each one of these oils can be used alone or as a blend in your ultrasonic diffuser, applied topically or even inhaled through your necklace diffuser throughout the day. Gain all of the benefits from essential oils just by using them anywhere you go!
MAKING IT STICK
If you really want to make a change in your lifestyle, experts say that it takes at least 30 days to turn a behavior into a habit. And that’s all there is to it! Simply commit to one of these new behaviors every day and in just a few short weeks you won’t even have to think about it any more. More energy, better sleep and even a leaner physique is within your reach, and all you have to do is make the decision to stay on track with your new healthy habit every day. Start with one and work your way though all 5 of these healthy habits. Just don’t forget to keep us updated with your progress on Facebook. We’d love to hear your story!
A NOTE ON QUALITY
When you are shopping for essential oils you might see labels like “Pure,” “All-Natural,” or “Therapeutic Grade.” What you may not know is that these claims are not always completely true. Today, essential oil companies can get away with adding all kinds of fillers, artificial additives and even water to their products in order to shave costs off of their bottom line. That means that when you think you’re getting a potent, pure and medicinal quality oil - what you are really getting isn’t even essential oils at all!
At Healing Solutions we truly value the health and happiness of our loyal customers as well as new shoppers. That’s why every single batch of essential oils we make istested, verified and certified100% pure and unadulterated, so that you get the results you expect when using them for health purposes.
