According to a 2015 Neilsen Survey, the top New Years goal is… you guessed it…getting into shape! Managing your weight can be a challenge, especially if you are working hard and not seeing results. We all know that there are great long-term benefits to eating well and regular exercise, so we’re giving you some helpful tips to boost your efforts!

Grapefruit Vitality essential oil
Grapefruit Vitality supports weight management when used with healthy eating habits and regular exercise. This oil has cleaning properties and can support your lymphatic system. Start your day off with a drop or two in a glass of water or put 2 drops in a veggie capsule!

SLEEP.
We all know that sleep is important to our health. Keeping the room dark and limiting cell phone use at night can help you fall asleep faster and sleep longer. In addition, diffusing a blend of three drops Lavender essential oil and 2 drops Cedarwood essential oil can help you relax to get a better night’s sleep.

Incorporating Slique
Young Living’s Slique system is formulated to promote healthy weight management.* Slique® CitraSlim™ includes a proprietary essential oil blend for weight management, which some studies suggest may help support the body in burning excess fat when used in conjunction with a balanced diet and regular exercise. Young Living’s Slique product line also includes Slique EssenceSlique ShakeSlique TeaSlique Bars, and Slique Gum—a whole Slique System to support you in your weight-management goals!

Drink more water
Stay hydrated throughout the day not only helps with weight loss, but helps clear skin and curb cravings! Swap your regular water by adding a couple drops of essential oils like Lemon, Lime, Peppermint, or Citrus Fresh Vitality. If you’re adventurous, experiment with combining a couple Vitality oils and make drinking water more fun!

Plan ahead for cravings
Throw these essential oil-infused chocolate energy balls or apple chips in your purse or car for go-to healthy snacks when hunger hits!

Keep moving
Opt for stairs instead of the elevator, park on the far end of the parking lot, and take time to stretch throughout the day. If you’re having trouble with motivation, try diffusing Citrus Fresh or Peppermint essential oil to help add a little pep to your step.

Add some friends
Everything is easier with a support system! Get a group together to share goals and encourage each other forward. Talk about the highs and lows. Schedule gym sessions together!
