An energized life isn’t about being busy all of the time or working around the clock. It’s about filling your days with healthy habits that fuel your mind, body and spirit.
Here are 9 simple daily habits to help energize your life – you’re going to love the way you feel once you start implementing these rituals into your daily routine.
1. Rise and shine
Say goodbye to drowsy mornings and slow starts! If you get into the routine of rising early and going to bed on time, you’re more likely to have a better sleeping pattern which leads to being more energized throughout the day.
Push back your sheets’ cosy embrace and start your day by diffusing 2 drops Lemon essential oil, 2 drops Citrus Fresh™ essential oil, and 2 drops Peppermint essential oil.
2. Breakfast of champions
Planning a simple, delicious, healthful breakfast makes it easier to get up and provides crucial energy for your day. Try a shot of NingXia Red® with your breakfast to provide a whole-body nutrient infusion.
You can also blend NingXia Red® into your smoothie, acai bowl, or morning juice as part of a quick, convenient breakfast.
3. Hit those goals
Sometimes we lack energy and excitement in our lives because we don’t know what direction we want to go in or how to get there. We're definitely not grounded at all. Take five minutes every morning to create a list of your daily goals and intentions. While planning, diffuse an inspiring blend like Transformation essential oil™ to encourage an uplifting and inspiring atmosphere, helping to create clarity and focus. I have to tell you I use Transformation and Believe together boy what a powerful concoction this is. Also try diffusing them both when you go to bed you will sleep like a baby........... I did!
4. Sweat it out
It’s no secret that exercise can improve your life in many ways, such as provide mental clarity, improve quality of sleep and you guessed it – more energy, much more energy!
However, you like to work up a sweat—whether it’s weights, yoga, running, or even a brisk walk—try to get your body moving every day.
Before you start your workout, apply Deep Relief roll on to muscles for a refreshing, cooling sensation and invigorating scent that will inspire greater feelings of energy and positivity to help you stay motivated. I also use Deep relief roll on to relieve my headaches!
5. Ice ice baby
After your beautiful, nice, warm shower try finishing off with a cold cold shower. I know it's a matter of do as I say not do as I do! I can do it in the Summer months but definitely not then colder seasons. My acupuncturist tells me it supports the Vagus nerve which supports the immune system.6. DON'T FORGET TO HYDRATE
Drinking lots of water is an important key to staying energized, but that doesn’t mean it has to be a total bore!
Try adding a drop of Peppermint culinary essential oil to your water for a refreshing kick. If you like a bubbly drink, add a drop of Jade Lemon oil to your sparkling water for a tasty burst of flavour.
7. Caring for you
It’s never too late to start making yourself a priority! Setting aside time for yourself and following through can give you a whole new perspective on life.
Switching to a natural deodorant is a simple act of self-care! CitraGuard Deodorant uses Lemongrass, Thyme and Lemon essential oils to keep you smelling bright and fresh without resorting to harsh chemicals.
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 away for yourself through a meditation practice – even just 5 minutes can set you for a more grounded day.
Dilute and apply Acceptance essential oil™ to wrists, edge of ears, neck and feet to instill a sense of openness and balance.
Whether you need a safe space to vent or think more clearly, when your thoughts are put on paper, journaling can be cathartic. Many of us process events and emotions through pen and paper, so write it all down! I personally love this and it makes such a difference each and every day.
Place a drop of Patchouli essential oil on the page before you get started to inspire feelings of balance. Let the positivity guide your pen to paths of peace and resolve.
