Day 14 – Wellness Bootcamp for Quarantine

2020_03 WBQ_day14Today we finish up our bootcamp by moving out of fear and into possibility. Managing stress is a big theme in the bootcamp and we address a slightly different aspect – of controlling our thoughts so that we can stay calm and do the next right thing.

Frankincense essential oil provides us an “attitude adjustment” when we do a simple inhalation using a drop or two!

In our “real life” video we discuss strategies for staying in the flow of the day, intervening in our stress and thoughts.

Skills:

  1. Do an “attitude adjustment” with your Frankincense essential oil blend 4-6 times today, and definitely before bed.
  2. Notice your thoughts today. If you notice negative thought patterns, use that as an opportunity to intervene with Therapeutic Breath, one of your essential oils, and a positive thought, affirmation, or scripture verse!

While using your Frankincense essential oil, you can say an affirmation or meditate on a scripture verse!

  • Affirmation: I am wholly and unconditionally loved by God. I am fully present and empowered in this moment. I take confident action, doing the next right thing.
  • Scripture: “Martha, burdened with much serving, came to him and said, ‘Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving? Tell her to help me.’ The Lord said to her in reply, ‘Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.’” ~ Luke 10: 40-42 (NABRE)

Day 13 – Wellness Bootcamp for Quarantine

2020_03 WBQ_day13Today we’re talking about cleansing. Often when we give the body good resources (even oxygen from breathing and water), it takes the opportunity to cleanse or detox.

Citrus Fresh Vitality essential oil blend is a tool to support natural cleansing processes, through both digestive system and lymphatic system.

In our “real life” video we discuss strategies for managing the cleansing process when your body decides it’s time — also on how to get to know your lymphatic system.

Skills:

  1. Use your Citrus Fresh Vitality essential oil blend as a supplement today. Consider taking a capsule or add a drop or two to your water.
  2. Do a lymph drainage massage for your head and neck (see video demos below).


Here’s a version of “Lymph Drainage for the Head & Neck” by Amy on Facebook (On some browsers, the video shows up embedded. If it’s not showing up, use the link).


While using your Citrus Fresh essential oil, you can say an affirmation or meditate on a scripture verse!

  • Affirmation: My body naturally cleanses with grace and ease. When I give my body good resources, it does good things with them. I can trust my body.
  • Scripture: “And behold, a leper came to him and knelt before him, saying, ‘Lord, if you will, you can make me clean.’” ~ Matthew 8: 2 (ESV)

PanAway essential oil blend is a powerful tool to enhance massage and manage stress!
panaway_graphic_5mlIn our “real life” video we discuss the wellness mindset shift about pain, plus strategies for lifestyle changes that have helped us on our wellness journey.

Skills:

  1. Use your PanAway essential oil blend topically 4-6 times today.
  2. Make a massage oil with about 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil (ex. coconut oil or V-6 Mixing Oil from Young Living) and 5-10 drops of PanAway essential oil blend. Do a full body self-massage routine.The goal of the massage is to help you manage stress and bring your conscious awareness to your body. Massage is not rocket science—so don’t over-think it. And, be gentle with yourself and your body, ie no deep tissue and don’t add pain to your body! You’re mostly “spreading oil.”

Day 11 – Wellness Bootcamp Quarantine

2020_03 WBQ_day11Manage Stress – AGAIN! Hey – we already did that twice. Yes. And the stress is STILL THERE! Today, we’re focusing on helping our adrenal response CALM DOWN.

Use your Young Living Lavender essential oil to keep calm.

In our “real life” video we discuss giving yourself permission to be tired and to rest — and how to do that even when you have pressing things to do.

Skills:

  1. Monitor your caffeine intake. Try decreasing your intake, or giving yourself permission to be tired and only using caffeine when really needed.
  2. Put Lavender in your pocket and use it every waking hour today. Set a timer! Compare and contrast with your experience using Stress Away in a similar manner (Day 5).
  3. Put a few drops of Lavender on the bottom of your feet before bed. (Share with your family, too!)

While using your Lavender essential oil, you can say an affirmation or meditate on a scripture verse!

  • Affirmation: It is OK to be tired. I give myself permission to rest when needed. My sleep is relaxed and refreshing.
  • Scripture: “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” ~ Matthew 11: 28-30 (RSV)

Day 10 – Wellness Bootcamp for Quarantine

2020_03 WBQ_day10We’re all focusing more on Perimeter Defense — washing hands, hand sanitizer, cleaning surfaces, protecting nose, mouth, eyes, etc. Let’s make sure that we’re not irritating our immune and respiratory systems with harsh chemicals while we’re endeavoring to clean our selves, homes, and surroundings!

Thieves products provide effective options without harsh chemicals – and they can actually support our health & wellness!

In our “real life” video we discuss strategies for making lifestyles changes during this time – with the theme of giving yourself time and grace!

Skills:

  1. Use the Thieves products that you have (that came in your Premium Starter Kit).
  2. Take an inventory of harsh chemicals in your home that need to be changed. Then, make a plan. Replace the ones you can right away with natural alternatives or DIY recipes. Decide which ones you use the most and would have the biggest impact for replacing… and make a plan to replace them. Order from Young Living.

While using your Thieves products, you can say an affirmation or meditate on a scripture verse!

  • Affirmation: My body is strong and protected. I wash my hands effectively. I keep my hands away from my face. Even during uncertainty and stress, I take effective action to keep myself and my family well.
  • Scripture: “Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.’” ~ Psalm 57: 1 (NIV)
