Fitting changes into our busy lifestyles is difficult. Many of us find ourselves committing to better nutrition and workout routines at the first of the year but are back to our bad habits after a few weeks.
With the start of the new year just around the corner, it’s time to try something better. The Slique™ in 60 Challenge is a more realistic approach to weight management and is specially designed to help you make lasting lifestyle changes. This unique program brings the power of Slique products—tried-and-tested combinations of naturally derived ingredients and pure essential oils—together with a simple and customizable diet and exercise regimen to help you develop better eating habits, more effectively manage your weight*, or both! Here are our Steps for Success:
Step 1: Commit to your weight-management program.
Any effective weight-management program should include a consistent routine of both exercise and healthy eating habits. Exercise not only helps you manage your weight, but it also improves mood, boosts energy, and promotes better sleep. For most healthy adults, the Department of Health and Human Services recommends getting at least 150 minutes per week of moderate aerobic activity. That’s only 25 minutes per day, 6 days per week, and can include activities like brisk walking, swimming, weight training, or tennis.
We also encourage you to create a meal plan. Eat wholesome, well-balanced meals and drink plenty of water throughout the day. Ensuring that your body receives all the nutrients it needs is an important component of a healthy lifestyle, especially if you are reducing your caloric intake.
We offer four different Slique collections, each with up to 10 percent savings, as part of our Slique line. You can choose from Slique Maintain, Slique Assist, Slique Advance, or Slique Complete and find the one that best complements your goals.
Step 3: Set a goal using the SMART system.
Apply the principles of SMART goal setting to maximize your chances for success:
- Specific: Choose a specific goal; e.g., exercise 30 minutes a day rather than “exercise more.”
- Measurable: Determine how you will measure your goal; e.g., days exercised or miles ran in a week.
- Accountable: Develop a way to be held accountable; e.g., share your goals with someone who will be supportive of you.
- Realistic: Make sure your goal is attainable; e.g., exercise 30 minutes a day rather than 2 hours per day.
- Timeframe: Establish a specific time in which you plan to accomplish your goal; e.g., 30 days, 60 days, etc.
Step 4: Evaluate your progress.
Maintain motivation by reviewing your goal on a regular basis. Ask yourself questions like “How am I doing with this goal?” and “Do I need to make any adjustments to my plan?” After this assessment, continue to move forward and use the Slique collection that best matches your goals. You may also customize and supplement with other Young Living products, such as NingXia Nitro™ and BLM™, to help you on your way to success!
Another wonderful benefit of this program is the Slique in 60 Pledge. If you don’t see a change for the better after 60 days of consecutive use, we will give you a product credit equal to the amount of your purchase. That’s how confident we are that this program will work for you!
To help kick-start your goals, we are giving away an entire Slique Complete collection! To enter, leave a comment telling us how you use Young Living products to help reach your health goals. We’ll announce the winner here on Thursday, January 1!
