POST #1.2 - THE WELLNESS PYRAMID and TURNING ROUTINES TO HABITS
The amount of time to create a true habit can range from person to person. Doing the same activity daily and creating a sense of importance around that activity is key. This 10 day challenge is meant to get you started on creating a healthy daily foundation for yourself. At the end of this challenge, we will teach you how to add additional layers to this routine. When you are working on establishing a new habit, it’s helpful to leave important items in places you’ll see them, therefore jogging your memory to complete your new routine. For example, I leave my vitamins in the kitchen cabinet above my oils with the water glasses. This reminds me to take them because I see them every time I open that cabinet:) It’s a good idea to establish where you’ll house your workbook, oils, and supplements for the daily activities in this group based on your own daily routines. Tell us in the comments below how you’ll remember to complete your daily challenge activities. Bonus points for pics!
During this challenge, we will explore many areas of wellness. Here at doTERRA, we have something called the Wellness Pyramid. This pyramid defines different aspects of the doTERRA lifestyle, teaching us how to live a life full of vitality and health. You’ll notice that at the base of this pyramid are the layers Eat Right and Exercise. Any healthy routine is established upon these basic principles. LLV and Deep Blue Rub are included in the items needed for this challenge because they support these bottom layers, helping you to build a base of wellness that is ready to be continually built upon. Throughout this challenge, we will also discuss resting, managing stress effectively, and reducing environmental toxins that can accumulate and cause disease in the body. Finally, we will teach you how you can use your oils for informed self care, helping you make informed medical decisions for yourself and your family.
We can’t wait to get rolling! This is going to be an amazing 10 days!
