Focus & Field

Focus & Field

june

It’s the end of the month! Do you know what that means in direct sales? Utter chaos. There’s numbers to be run, last minute sales to put out there, goals to be made, and so much more. I love the end of the month because it’s so close to a new and fresh month, but it can be really stressful and hard to concentrate on one thing at a time. With so many things to do, I often have issues completing one task before starting another.

Field

I talked about the Infused 7 oils a week and a half or so ago. I mentioned that I love them and what not, but today I want to go into a little more depth about the “Field” oil blend. It really helped me today so I want to share that experience with my lovely readers!

As I mentioned, the end of the month is super crazy for direct sales, or any type of sales for that matter. Along with the craziness of that all, I have also been working at my other job, on top of writing, on top of my grandmother being in the hospital as her days grow short. It’s been a really tough couple weeks with losing my friend and now closing in on losing my grandmother. I am barely holding myself together and burying myself in my work seems to be helping.

writing escape

Today I decided to write a piece on Zerys.com. I haven’t been assigned anything for a little while, so I decided to take one of the “open writer board” options and chose to write a piece about business card size. Exciting, right? I thought it would help take my mind off of things, but when I sat down to write, I just couldn’t do it. My mind that had racing all weekend just stopped. I noticed my “Field” oil blend sitting on my desk and placed a drop on my wrist and smoothed it in. Normally I would diffuse it, but that would mean having to get up and get my diffuser, and we all know that would have just caused too much stress 🙂 To be fair, I am dealing with way too much, but anyway, back to this.

After applying it to my wrist and sniffing it like the weirdo I am, I sat for a while and soon ideas started flowing to me. I knew exactly what to write. I knew what to cover, what to expand on, and thus a beautifully written masterpiece was created. Well, as beautiful as a piece on business card size can be. ***Side note: don’t do the “wrist sniff” in public. People will look at you like you’re crazy***

I love the “Field” oil blend because it helps me concentrate on the work I set out for myself. It helps me to focus on one thing at a time and helps me think about the big picture, even in the midst of chaos. It smells nice and refreshing and helps boost not only my confidence in my work, but in myself as well.

Other great oils for concentration include Clarity, peppermint (Dr. Williams Dember found a 28% concentration rate increase with the use of peppermint), Brain Power, rosemary, and lemon. I like to think of peppermint and lemon as my super blend when I’m not using “Field”.

If you have work that needs to be done as this crazy month comes to an end, lean on essential oils to give you that extra boost of energy and concentration!

Infused 7, Oola & Young Living Work Together to Make Inspiring Oils

Infused 7, Oola & Young Living Work Together to Make Inspiring Oils

infused 7

I promised you guys a post on my new Infused 7 oils and here it is! As you know, in a little team contest I won three of the seven oils inspired by #Oola. I wasn’t really sure what to expect from oils titled “Friends”,  “Field, “Family”, “Fun”, “Finance”, “Faith, and “Fitness”, so I was excited to get them in and see what they could do.

I received “Friends, “Family”, and “Field” from the contest. The first thing I did was open them up and smell them and um, yum. I was blown away by how great they smell. My favorite would have to be “Friends”. It has a nice, light, citrus-y aroma that warmed my heart and calmed my mind. I have actually started wearing it as a perfume on my wrist.

I have noticed that when diffusing “Field” while writing I seem to do a better job. I am not sure if it’s because it helps me focus on the content or if it’s because it has such an inspiring citrus aroma. If you’ve noticed, my last few posts have mentioned citrus oils a time or two 😉

I was having some trouble with a co-worker so I decided to wear “Friends” on my wrist to work a week or so ago. The atmosphere was still a little hostile, but I felt much more calm. I was really anxious that morning as I was getting ready, fearing what the day would bring, but after putting this on I felt like I had control of the situation. Whether it’s mind over matter, I am not sure, but I will take it either way!

I have found that “Family” is a great oil to diffuse during dinner time. It smells wonderful and compliments any dinner. Lemon chicken is probably my favorite dinner to diffuse it during. And speaking of lemon chicken, I will have to do post on that soon.

Oola Challenge

Oola Challenge

oola

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.
