This is the time of year when we start thinking of the past year’s positives and negatives. Resolutions are made. Some are kept and most are broken. Let’s consider a different concept this year. Rather than setting a goal to try to reach, how about committing to just “stop doing” something? Instead of saying “I’m going to lose 10 pounds this year”, why not just commit to stop drinking sodas. That means you can drink more water. Maybe commit to stop watching TV after dinner. That opens up time to do an activity. You get it…..whatever applies to you. Sure you are not going to be able to “stop doing” it every single day but I bet you get some days in and those are the baby steps you need.
I don’t live in the dark so I know you are going to set some of the traditional goals. Allow me to arm you with some tools that can help you reach your goals. There are essential oils that can help you achieve some of the common resolution goals and I suggest some other goals that maybe you didn’t think about.
Losing weight is the biggest New Year goal. This starts in the winter when natural energetics are working against us. We need warm hearty foods and the body is actually trying to hold weight for the winter. Some oils I suggest for helping you achieve this goal are bergamot, basil, peppermint, rosemary, thyme, black pepper, grapefruit, and lemon. Diffusing these can help with digestion and hunger.
Exercising more is a big New Year goal. Again and unfortunately this goal begins in the winter as well when we tend to be more sedentary and lack the energy. I suggest our “Charged Up” custom blend of essential oils to help you get a charge to get moving. It’ll put some pep in your step.
Might we suggest cutting back on stress as a goal. Less stress actually allows you to focus on the other goals of exercise and weight loss. When we are stressed we tend to shut down. I suggest our “Stress Free Zone” custom blend. Diffuse this in your home, office, and in your car to combat stress.
My favorite goal is to work on your gratitude and attitude. Try to focus on what you are grateful for and your attitude will follow. Look for ways to brighten someone else’s day and/or life. It’ll make you feel great. I have a custom blend that will lift your spirits and leave you feeling happy. Our “Happy Endings” blend.
Getting the right amount of sleep is absolutely essential to achieving your goals. These days so many folks suffer from some level of insomnia. Not getting enough rest can ruin all of your plans for improvement. I came up with a great blend for this. Our “Follow Your Dreams” custom blend is perfect for helping you get to sleep and to stay asleep.
The New Year is the perfect time to hit the reset button and get a fresh start. Why not add the best essential oils for diffusing to your list of New Year’s resolutions? It’s bound to be one of the easiest changes you make to your home all year, not to mention one of the most pleasant. Even if you are a seasoned oiler, I’m sure you can add to your collection. Let Dragonfly Naturals help you kick off the new year!
