A few days ago I heard of the new “Oola Challenge” being given to people around the world. I wasn’t sure what it was at first, but I love a good challenge, especially when it involves social media. I signed up for the challenge and on May 1st I got my first task via email.
What is Oola?
Oola is the balance in life. When you find balance in life, you will have Oola. A balanced life makes for a good life, a happy life. It’s unlocking the potential for the greatness that lives inside all of us. There are seven main points that Oola is based upon and finding balance in those things is the ultimate goal.
The Oola Challenge is a month long journey to work towards a balanced life. Each day, an email is sent out with a new task and once the task is done, you are encouraged to post about it on social media so that the challenge can be spread. Some of the tasks are hard. some of them are simple, but all of them will help you lean toward a healthier and happier life.
On May 1st, I got my first task. It was 5:07 am when I heard my email ping. I knew it was my first Oola task and I was both nervous and excited to see what was in store for me. I opened up my email and I dug right in. The first challenge of the month was “A Random Act of Oola”, or as some people know it, a random act of kindness.
Buy coffee for the guy behind you at the coffee stand, leave a note for a coworker, smile at someone passing by. There are so many little things you can do to spread a smile. A simple gesture can go a long way. The goal of this challenge was to let someone wear the smile you gave them.
This task was both challenging and fun for me. I thought it would be really easy, but it actually took a lot of courage for me to complete it.
One of my favorite customers at work is a younger man. He never says much and I just know his drink and that he doesn’t want to be bothered with me asking if he wants his usual. Today I decided I would make his drink the largest size possible because I know he hasn’t been doing so well. Half way through making it, he asked me to make it the largest size. He couldn’t see that I was already doing that, so I smiled and said, “of course”. I had already had it in my head that I would pay for his drink. I finished it up, handed it to him, and told him it was on me this time. The look on his face brought tears to my eyes in an instant. This man, who I know is struggling with something no human should have to struggle with, gave me the biggest smile I have ever seen. My whole day was made with a simple action, and I could tell that his was too.
It doesn’t take much to make someone’s day a little better and I encourage you to go out and do something for someone today. It doesn’t have to cost money or take much time, just do something.
Young Living worked together with the Oola team and now has an amazing line out right now called “Infused 7”, based off of the 7 parts of Oola: Fitness, Family, Fun, Finance, Field, Faith, and Friends. They are seven perfectly blended oils to transform and improve your life and to help you find that balance. These oils will help you move toward the ultimate goal in life: Oola.
I am currently waiting on three of the Oola inspired oils: Friends, Family, and Field. I am so excited to try them out and share my experience with you guys! I have also recently started reading the Oola: Find Balance in an Unbalanced World”. I won the book as part of a team contest within my oil group and didn’t think I would like it. I was sooo wrong. I am in love with this book. I thought it would be some self help book with all the “quick” and “easy” ways to “fix” my life, but this book goes deeper than that. It talks about real issues in life and that it takes all time and effort to have a balanced life and the life you want. I completely recommend it.
If you want to take the #OolaChallenge, start here. It is not too late to start!

I was not paid in any way by Oola to post this. These are my personal thoughts.
