Enhance positive habits with essential oils
Are you ready to take your essential oils to the next level?
Are you serious about changing those pesky bad habits and in return, create more positive habits to fill your day?
Habits such as:
- Being more positive towards yourself
- Being more productive with your day
- Being more health conscious with your food intake
- Less procrastination
I will show you how you can use your essential oils to help you reach your goals of a healthier, happier, and productive life.
Here we go.
Everyone who writes articles about creating new habits makes it seem like creating a habit is an effortless process.
For example, I read an article this week about increasing your energy by adding nine simple habits to your day.
It can take up to 90 days to create a simple and basic habit that retains approximately .05 seconds of your day to do. Creating habits are no easy task.
The best thing to do right now is to focus on small steps and some patience because it will take a little time to acquire an automated habit.
I know, it doesn’t sound all that sexy.
But keep this in mind, if you can think of one person with the habit you want to acquire, then the habit is 100% obtainable for you.
” We are exactly what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”~ Aristotle
But habits aren’t just things we do and create on a whim. Habits are thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are ingrained in our daily activities.
They are automated processes of how we deal with everyday things.
Keep your focus with me, and I’ll show you how using essential oils, and repetitive behaviors can help you build positive habits that will change your life to a more positive, effective, and fulfilling one.
Removing bad habits can be more of a setback.
The first thing we do is change the idea of removing bad habits. If you think creating a good habit will be hard, then removing a bad habit will be ten times that.
On top of it being harder to remove a bad habit, it’s adding twice as much work. Mentally and emotionally. I say meh to that.
Good and bad habits are about acute and long-term rewards. What we get and don’t get from patterns that we have created are typically the driving force being our habits.
Just like any good landscaper will tell you. The best way to remove and maintain weeds is to grow healthy turf.
Creating a to-do list
Starting on a project that will help you maintain and develop good habits is a great place to begin our journey. We need to make this new habit as convenient and easy to obtain as possible.
A to-do list.
Taking a few minutes each night before bed and create a simple to-do list for the next day is easy, quick, and simple to do. It will only take a minute or two from your day, and you control the environment and the reward.
Who doesn’t need a to-do list?
Though the idea may be small, the impact can be pretty significant.
Remember, this has to be a positive experience. The thought process going into it, during, and after creating your list has to be uplifting and positive.
An excellent way to help create a positive impact in developing this habit is to make sure you have your pen and pad ready every night and sitting by your bed.
Make it as easy and convenient as possible for yourself. Creating a habit is hard enough to do. Making it difficult to do it isn’t going to help you.
Enhance your habit with essential oils
Even though citrus aromas can add energy, diffusing Bnatural orange or bergamot essential oil a few minutes before bed is a great way to create an uplifting atmosphere in your room.
If you don’t want to diffuse your essential oils, you can take a whiff or dab some on your earlobe. This will help create a pleasant and comfortable environment that you will like. It will also help give you a little boost of dopamine while you build your to-do list.
Associating the aroma, good feelings, and convenience to your habit development will increase the success of adding new positive habits and creating a healthier you.
When you create your to-do list for the next day, you don’t need to overdo it in your tasks. It can be more like a reminder list and not a list of things you usually wouldn’t do or don’t like to do.
Remember, making your list is to create a habit of doing the list and creating the time to do it.
I hope this quick tidbit of information was helpful for you as it was for me.
