Do you have a long list of goals you’d like to achieve in 2023? Perhaps you are still thinking of areas where you’d like to improve. Wherever you are in that journey, Plant Therapy can support the process! We’ve rounded up some ideas and paired them with our favorite essential oils & aromatherapy tips to help you achieve your goals.
Love yourself as your unique and authentic self
What helps you feel more empowered to embrace your unique self? This year, find the things that make you smile and do more of them. Find what ignites your passion for life, and live more of that. Wherever you are, make sure to go easy on yourself and trust the journey. We have some beautiful blends that can help you achieve this worthy goal:
- We love our Self Esteem blend for that extra boost of confidence whenever you need it.
- Our Loving Compassion blend invites positive energy and promotes unconditional love for self and others with compassion and acceptance.
- Diffusing our Self-Care blend can help lift your spirits, calm nervousness, and ease feelings of worry and stress.
Give yourself more time to rest & recharge
We tend to give in to the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. We pack our schedules and fill our free time with endless busy work. If we don’t give ourselves the needed rest, we will soon run short of the energy we need to keep up. Here are some ideas to help accomplish this goal:
- Try to sleep at the same time every night. You can even set up a sleep reminder on your phone. Creating a healthy routine will help you get better quality sleep. Try our Blissful Dreams, Nighty Night, Sweet Slumber, or Relax blends to help ease you into dreamland.
- Meditation is an excellent way to help ground anxious energy & calm your busy mind. Diffusing any of these oils is very helpful in creating a calming and grounding environment. Meditation, Ho Wood, Patchouli & Palo Santo.
Build healthier habits
You may have heard of the psychology behind making your bed each morning. By accomplishing that one small task in the morning, it will encourage you to be more productive and complete more tasks throughout the day. If you’re looking to build better habits this year, this advice is an excellent place to start. Building better habits will be easier if we’re consistent with the small things. This practice works in other areas of our lives, whether starting a new fitness routine, saving money, or getting organized. Here are some of our favorite oils for staying focused to build healthier habits.
- Brain Aid– made from a combination of mentally energizing and stimulating oils, all known for boosting focus and helping keep your mind sharp.
- Invigor Aid – the essential oils in this blend will increase your alertness and ability to focus and concentrate.
- Hocus Focus – developed to help support focus and fight fidgeting, enabling you to concentrate and stay on task.
- Clarity – helps to enhance memory and mental focus. Great for when you’re working on important projects or any task requiring clear and decisive mental activity.
Save space for connection
Studies have shown that healthy connections may improve physical well-being and overall happiness. Meeting a friend for coffee or walking with a loved one can help reduce stress, release oxytocin, and increase feelings of gratitude. One way to foster bonding time while also experiencing new things is to start DIYing with your family & friends! Pick a DIY project that resonates with you, then have everyone bring an ingredient of their choice and get creative! We love these DIYs for group gatherings:
- Margarita Salt Scrub Bars
- Mimosa Lip Balms
- DIY Dryer Sheets & Linen Spray
- Top 5 DIYs with Lavender Essential Oil
Create more time for fun and adventure!
Whether it’s dancing in the rain, karaoke with friends, or hopping on a jet plane and exploring the globe, hold space for experiences! Staycations are also an excellent opportunity for adventure. Search for a local hot spring and escape for the day, tandem bike with a friend, visit your favorite restaurant or park where you can gaze at the stars. You don’t have to break the bank to have a great time!
