A New Year, A New You: This is How You Keep Your Goals on Track

Shared by: http://neriumblog.net/nerium-international/a-new-year-a-new-you-this-is-how-you-keep-your-goals-on-track/

Jeff Olson is the Founder and CEO of Nerium International – an award-winning network marketing company committed to delivering age-fighting skincare and wellness solutions.

In late December 2017, Nerium International Co-Founder and Chief Field Officer Tammy Smith had this to say to our Brand Partners: “Go into the new year with a plan!” Tammy’s got a point! I believe that one of the reasons why Nerium is so immensely successful is because when it comes to business, we’re all on the same page! We make plans, we dream big, and we set goals and act on them daily.

Start the Year Big

Do you ever think about the number of lives we’ve changed collectively? In one of her #realchats articles, Nerium Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer Amber Olson Rourke wrote, “We’ve never wanted to be just a skin care or wellness company. Our goal has been to create an opportunity available to people from all walks of life.” I think about her words all the time. She said, “…the key to living your dream life is taking those daily steps to get to your goal.”

The truth is, as individuals, we can’t accomplish what we can as a team. For this reason, I must thank each one of you for joining the Nerium family. Because of YOU, we’re not only a team but we’re a winning team. If ever you’re in doubt about what we accomplish as a company, never forget, we’re bigger than the product and we’re bigger than the financial opportunity. Because we ARE in the business of Making People Better.

Goal Setting Matters

My advice for the new year is to set your goals — right off the bat. Goals are the gateway to living your dreams. Why wait? These six principles are essential for successful goal setting:

  1. Write It Down: Whether your goal is to lose 25 pounds or make $100,000 a year — by writing down your goals you’re saying “no” to unnecessary distractions and “yes” to focusing on what matters most. Setting clear, measurable goals will help you see your way forward. Writing down your goals and posting them where you can see them every day becomes motivation for you to reach the end.
  2. Be Specific: Just writing down, “I want to lose weight,” is not specific enough — but committing to losing 10 pounds over 30 days gives you a clear and realistic objective to work toward. Clear objectives will also make it easier to see pitfalls in your plan and will help you recognize the right choices from the wrong ones. If my goal is to lose 25 pounds in three months, eating a donut a day may not be the best route to being successful.
  3. Set a Deadline: If you have an open-ended goal, you’re less likely to stay focused. I suggest setting a realistic deadline — one that is challenging but not so difficult that you lose hope or give up. You should be excited and motivated to reach your milestone, not discouraged because it’s not attainable.
  4. Identify your Plan: I can’t stress the importance of this point enough: the plan you start with is not the plan that will get you to your end goal. The plan only gets you started. But, ultimately, it’s your responsibility to adapt and adjust your actions to guarantee the most successful outcome.
  5. Pay the Price: I’m not going to lie to you — there’s always a price to pay. Think about it this way: If you want to go back to school and work full time, you’ll have to make sacrifices. Perhaps you give up your favorite TV shows or your weekly happy hour with friends. Instead of thinking about what you have to sacrifice now, focus on how making the hard choices now will benefit you in the future! The price you pay goes hand in hand with how you prioritize your to-do list. In fact; it’s all about priorities — an hour of TV versus an hour of studying. If you want that A, you may want to study an extra hour and sacrifice an episode of your favorite TV program. That’s the price you’ll have to pay. That’s how you reach your goals!
  6. Say It: Do you know what some of the world’s most successful people have in common? They repeat their goals to themselves at least twice a day — out loud. The reason for this is that by saying your goals out loud, you’re training your brain to focus and recognize what’s positive instead of immediately jumping to reasons why you might fail.

Here’s the thing: most people set New Year’s resolutions and then forget about them within a couple of weeks. By setting your goals in writing and speaking them out loud, you’re sure to be motivated to act on them. If you’re worried about staying on track, proclaim your goals to loved ones. There’s nothing better than having a cheer squad! A true support system will always help you stay on track.Winning is a team sport, and I can’t wait to see you at the finish line!

How to Brighten, Hydrate, and Guard your Skin Against Pollutants!

Shared by: http://neriumblog.net/nerium-product/how-to-brighten-hydrate-and-guard-your-skin-against-pollutants/

Your skin may appear dull for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common factors for dull skin include dietary choices, overexposure to environmental stressors, dead skin cells, and a lack of exfoliation. In case you haven’t heard, we have good news for you. Recently, Nerium International revealed IllumaBoostTM Brightening & Shield – an easy-to-use skin-enhancer that brightens, hydrates, and guards your face against harmful urban pollutants.

Why Should You Use IllumaBoost?

Dull skin can make you look tired and old even when you’re not. Fortunately, IllumaBoost fights the signs of uneven skin tone and discoloration, helping your skin look brighter and more radiant than ever before. This product is formulated with ingredients known to fight environmental stressors and increase your skin’s moisture and hydration for the appearance of soft, flattering fullness.

As with all other Nerium products, IllumaBoost is crafted to address multiple problems at once. Our innovative skin booster features a breakthrough delivery system that dispenses a fresh and potent dose of proprietary and proven ingredients once you add a few pumps to any of your skincare products, or even directly to your face.

Before applying IllumaBoost for the first time, be sure to take a “before” picture. Each month after, retake that picture so you can evaluate the progress of your results.

How to Use

  • Step 1: Each IllumaBoost product comes with two 15-day use bottles, giving you a month’s worth of skin-boosting action. When using IllumaBoost for the first time, start by pressing the pump down to open the dual-compartment chamber. This action releases niacinamide (a well-known ingredient for more even-toned looking skin) and Vitamin C (an antioxidant for firming and brightening skin) from a separate chamber, allowing IllumaBoost to remain at its most potent until you’re ready to use it.
  • Step 2: Shake your IllumaBoost bottle for a few seconds or until the formula is completely mixed. When you’re ready to apply, press one to two pumps of IllumaBoost into your hand and mix with your Age-Defying Day Cream, Age-Defying Night Cream, foundation or sunscreen. This breakthrough product is gentle enough for everyday use – mornings and night. Keep in mind that each bottle should be used within 15 days of the first pump for optimal benefits.
  • Step 3: With the mixture now ready to use, apply the product to your skin like you would your regular products. Alternatively, you can also apply IllumaBoost directly to your face. Just remember to smooth over your skin before applying any other products.

Available Skincare Sets

If IllumaBoost Brightening & Shield’s benefits to your skin aren’t amazing enough, this product can be sold separately or as part of Nerium’s Advanced Skincare Set, which includes some of Nerium’s most innovative products: Age-Defying Night Cream, Age-Defying Day Cream, Age-Defying Eye Serum, IllumaBoost Brightening & Shield, and Double-Cleansing Botanical Face Wash. Now, you can supercharge your daily regimen with these age-fighting essentials available in one set for your convenience.

Give your skin – and your skincare regimen – the boost it needs with IllumaBoost Brightening & Shield.

Amber Olson Rourke is the Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer for Nerium International — an award-winning, age-fighting, family-owned skincare and wellness solutions company with headquarters in Dallas, Texas. Amber is responsible for all of Nerium’s branding, creative services, communications, public relations, events, digital marketing and social media. Learn more about Amber by viewing her monthly #realchats Facebook LIVE events and her #realchats thought leadership blog.

If you’re researching business opportunities to work from home in the relationship marketing industry, chances are good that you’ve come across the name Nerium International. Recognized in Direct Selling News as one of the top up-and-coming companies in relationship marketing in 2015 and 2016, our company represents the opportunity for individuals from all walks of life (we call them Brand Partners) to take charge of their own destinies, and live the lives they deserve. Imagine living the life YOU deserve.

The Nerium family consists not only of our valued Brand Partners, but also a diverse team of corporate employees who are industry experts in their respective fields. It’s truly a special place to work. What’s the secret to our success?

Believing in the Nerium Mission

One reason for Nerium’s impressive growth is the company’s comprehensive, age-fighting product line that combines the best of science and nature to deliver proven results. In fact, we work with some of the world’s top-tier universities and researchers to bring our fans scientifically derived, one-of-a-kind skincare and wellness solutions comprised of exclusive, patented ingredient blends. Our products are backed by science – but you don’t have to take my word for it, just look at the results!

Another reason is Nerium’s commitment to positively impacting as many lives as possible whether it be through the products our Brand Partners sell, the opportunities joining Nerium represents, or the lives we change through our charitable organization — The Nerium Ripple Foundation. Nerium has become one of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America‘s highest corporate donors. Since 2012, our company’s partnership with the non-profit organization has resulted in more than 3,500 deserving kids finding the love and guidance of a caring, adult mentor! One of these caring adults is Nerium Co-Founder and Chief Leadership Officer Renee Olson who has been a Big Sister to her Little Sister, Ryan, for about five years.

Yet another reason: Nerium’s culture is built around 10 core values that stand at the heart of our business. Jeff Olson, Nerium Founder and CEO and author of New York Times best-selling book, The Slight Edge, always says, “Our company culture is in our DNA!” He’s right: it drives what we do and are designed to help our Brand Partners on their journey to success.

A Breakthrough in Anti-Aging

It’s important to know that Nerium is committed to evidence-based product development, which makes preclinical and clinical testing essential before any product is released to the public. Refusing to ever test our products on animals, our company relies on cell culture and human clinical studies, taking every precaution to ensure the safety of the test subjects. Utilizing both in-house and third-party clinical trials, Nerium makes sure that we provide the best anti-aging products, and that each is proven effective before it hits the market.

Making People Better

We are confident in the effectiveness and safety of our products, and we’re thrilled to deliver our products through a network of Brand Partners, either in-person or online. The truth is, Nerium really is more than just an anti-aging company. We’re a growing family who has recognized a need to take charge of our own destiny, and to empower others to do the same.

For these reasons and many more, we stand behind our Brand Partners. We provide them with top-quality tools, training, and technology, as well as lucrative compensation within a strong social community, to help them succeed in building their businesses. By producing cutting-edge products, fueled by continual investment in further research, and empowering Brand Partners with all they need to succeed, Nerium has created a real opportunity, with a real future.

Nerium skincare and wellness products represent not only some of the most exciting breakthroughs in scientific discovery, but also an exciting opportunity for personal and professional growth. It’s your turn to live a fulfilled life, here’s your opportunity! We’re waiting for you!

With many benefits ranging from digestive health to improved immune system function, probiotics are beneficial bacteria that help rebalance microflora (microorganisms, including bacteria) in and on your body to keep your digestive system and skin healthy while deterring bad bacteria from spreading throughout your body.* In other words, probiotics ensure the good bacteria on the inside and the outside of your body outnumbers the bad bacteria!

As you may know, Nerium has only been around for six short years. Still, we’ve developed an award-winning product line that includes: (1) solutions to address the signs of aging as well as the underlying causes; (2) solutions to address the wellness of your body and mind – and now, with the introduction of our Prolistic Product line – (3) solutions to address the overall health of your skin and your body!

The Smart Choice

In addition to your health, probiotics are good for business! Probiotics are rapidly growing in both skincare and supplement sales, with the holistic concept of “inside-out beauty” growing in popularity, according to Mintel. In the US, value sales of probiotics for digestive health rose to $142 million in 2016.** And from just 2016 to 2017, there was a 33% increase in the launches of skincare products with probiotics!** We’re really positioned in a great market with these two products.

Why Prolistic

Merging our holistic approach to finding solutions with the benefits of pre- and probiotics, we’ve created Nerium’s new Prolistic line which includes a body lotion to soothe and rebalance your skin and a wellness supplement to keep your digestive system healthy.

With that said, let’s chat about Nerium’s two breakthrough products that kick off our Prolistic line:

ProlisticTM Skin-Balancing Lotion with Probiotic

Nerium is thrilled to offer our first all-over body lotion. Powered by our exclusive ProRenew Plus, a probiotic lysate, and prebiotic blend, this sheer lotion is ultra-smooth, and key ingredients hydrate your skin for up to 48 hours. Whereas Nerium’s Firming Body Contour Cream specifically works to firm, tone, and tighten your problem areas, Prolistic Lotion’s unique blend of ingredients replenishes and balances your skin. But don’t let its lightweight feel and soothing scent fool you: this lotion does serious heavy lifting when it comes to taking care of your skin.

Additionally, Prolistic Lotion:

  • Reinforces the skin’s natural renewal process
  • Strengthens the skin’s barrier
  • Supports natural exfoliation
  • Helps maintain skin health

ProlisticTM Pre- & Probiotics Plus Vitamins

Adding even more value to Nerium’s existing wellness assortment (which includes EHT Brain Formula, Youth Factor Complete Vitality Complex, and Youth Factor Superfood & Antioxidant Boost Powder), we’re super excited to share with you our new Prolistic Probiotic Powder, which combines three products in one: a prebiotic, probiotic and vitamin mix that includes vitamins B, C and D.!

Did you know in the U.S. alone, about 70 million adults suffer from digestive problems because of unhealthy eating and drinking habits, high usage of additives for processing food, and a high rate of antibiotic intake? Prolistic Pre & Probiotic Plus Vitamins contains two types of prebiotics and two strains of probiotics to help support good digestive function, enhance levels of beneficial microflora and balance levels of healthy bacteria in the digestive system.*

Additionally, Prolistic Probiotic Powder:

  • Helps support overall immune system function*
  • Helps ease digestion*
  • Maximizes the benefits of a healthy diet by supporting absorption of nutrients*

Packed in individual packets for on-the-go convenience with no water or mixing needed. All you have to do is pour the great tasting lemon powder directly into your mouth

Our Prolistic products can help to keep your body and skin in a healthier state. Nerium is turning wellness inside out with two new groundbreaking products. Don’t miss out! This is your shot to live life in balance!

How to Have It All with Nerium

Shared by: http://neriumblog.net/nerium-business/how-to-have-it-all-with-nerium/

What’s more important: youthful-looking skin, or the chance to win up to $3,000 in cash? You don’t have to choose; you could have both! Nerium International offers an opportunity for you to do just that: win a cash prize while combatting the signs of aging skin. Here’s the deal:

  • Visit 90daychallenge.com
  • Submit two pictures: a before picture (before using Nerium product) and an after picture (after using the product for 90 days)
  • You could win up to $3,000 for having fantastic real results!

There’s nothing more to it. Don’t believe us? Check out what our latest winner has to say about it.

A 90-Day Commitment

After fighting skin discoloration for over three decades, Teresa Leigh from California decided to try something new – literally! Having learned of Nerium’s age-fighting skincare line three years ago, Teresa was desperate for real results, which is why she decided to try one of the company’s newest products: IllumaBoost Brightening & Shield – an innovative skin booster to amplify your skincare regimen by adding essential ingredients to existing products to help brighten, hydrate and guard against environmental stressors.

“I’ve tried every lightening and brightening product out there with minimal results,” Teresa said. Some tried-and-tested methods did improve the condition of her skin with initial use but results were never lasting.

A Confidence Boost

IllumaBoost is a whole different story. “I saw incredible results after 30 days of use,” Teresa admitted. Thrilled with how fast the product works, she was also happy with how easy IllumaBoost is to apply. With first use, you press the pump down to release the brightening ingredients into the liquid. Shake, Break, and Illuminate! Mix in two pumps of products with your Night Cream, Day Cream, sunscreen, makeup foundation. And, you’re ready to go!

For some time, Teresa had been looking for a skincare solution to address her skin concerns and Nerium IllumaBoost Brightening & Shield works for her. “I would totally recommend IllumaBoost!” For the first time in a long time, Teresa is comfortable enough “to stop hiding behind camouflage makeup” and a lack of self-confidence is no longer an issue for her. “Not anymore! I want everyone out there to know there is hope,” she said

An Upcoming Trip

What’s next? Well, for Teresa, it’s time to start spending her $3,000 cash prize! “I have been saving money to go to Greece for a friend’s 50th birthday and the prize will for sure take care of that dream vacation,” Teresa explains.

Nerium’s Chief Marketing Officer Amber Olson Rourke was extremely impressed with Teresa’s results.“It’s incredibly rewarding for us, here at Nerium, to see the joy and confidence that people including Teresa get out of using our innovative skincare and wellness solutions!”

“Teresa deserves to be the winner of our 90-Day Challenge for the 3rd quarter in 2017!” said Nerium’s Vice President of Marketing, Patricia Finn. “Not only does she look radiant but just by submitting a before and after picture, Teresa gets to go on her dream vacation to Greece. That’s amazing!”

A New Search is On

Haven’t we convinced you yet? Check out Nerium’s 90-Day Gallery to view photographs of women and men of all adult ages using Nerium’s skincare products. Speaking of men, Teresa said she and her husband, Richard, enjoy many other Nerium skincare and wellness products. “The Eye Serum and Eye-V Patches are essential!” After all, the eyes are the windows to the soul and are the first to show signs of aging. In addition to Age-Defying Eye Serum, Nerium Eye-V Moisture Boost Hydrogel Patches, and IllumaBoost Brightening & Shield, Teresa has also made Nerium’s wellness products part of her daily ritual, “I’ll never stop taking EHT!” Taking a tablet of EHT® Brain Formula in the morning helps promote better cognitive function and overall brain health. Who would say “no” to that?

Turns out, you really can have it all – younger-looking skin and the opportunity to win cash prizes up to $3000. Visit 90daychallenge.com today to view more results and to submit your own photos. What’s left to say other than congratulations and bon voyage, Teresa!

Breakthrough in Anti-Aging: Happiness

Shared by: http://neriumblog.net/nerium-business/breakthrough-in-anti-aging-happiness/

Deborah K. Heisz, CEO, Co-Founder and Editorial Director of Live Happy and President of Nerium International, shares the latest in anti-aging – happiness!

One of the greatest style icons of all time, Coco Chanel, said that nature gives you the face you have at 20 but it’s ultimately up to you to merit the face you have at 50. The way I’ve always interpreted this quote is to mean that we don’t have much control about the natural aging process, but, we do have control over our everyday expressions and emotions that will eventually be etched into your skin — call it laugh lines, wrinkles, or crow’s feet. Knowing the inevitable, why not do our best to ensure that our faces and our health reflect the life experiences that have brought us happiness, laughter, joy, and optimism instead of the alternative?

Living a happy life

If you’re familiar with Live Happy magazine, you’ve likely heard us mention before how happiness empowers people to make a positive difference in their lives and in the lives of others. The ideology behind our magazine is that happier people are healthier, more satisfied with life, and more satisfied in their relationships. Not to mention, they live longer. This idea is not something we take lightly and we’re not the only ones on board with this philosophy! In fact, positive psychology research increasingly shows that much of our well-being is within our control and that our daily choices have proven effects on our physical as well as mental health. What’s more, we can say that people aren’t happier because they’re successful but rather people are successful because they’re happy. In fact, the odds for accomplishing your dreams improve significantly when you’re happy. That’s what Live Happy is all about. We’re not talking about a temporary rush of pleasure when you’re skydiving for the first time or eating a decadent piece of cake. No, happiness encompasses the entire human existence and your ability to thrive — it’s what keeps us young and healthy at heart!

Science-Based Tips

In a wonderful article written by Paula Felps for the February 2018 issue of Live Happy, Felps notes that people’s thoughts and behavior play a bigger role in well-being than realized before. “Science has found that happiness, not genetics, is one of the greatest predictors of longevity,” according to Felps’ article, which details research from experts in both medical and social science.

One of the things I love about this article – and there are many — is the list of six factors, supported by science, that can help you live a longer and more fulfilled life. These factors may surprise you and I encourage each one of you to look at these suggestions including the importance of belonging to organizations, volunteering, and replacing negative thoughts with things like breathing techniques to help calm your mind. For the full article, click here.

You see, current and emerging research reveal that happiness, or a lack thereof, directly impacts almost every aspect of our lives. Furthermore, when we are happy, we are better able and more inclined to improve the lives of others, our communities, and the world.

Your Personal Journey of Happiness

Live Happy is here to help make your world a happier place because the positivity that stems from happiness turns into a roadmap to a long and fruitful life. That’s right, happiness is one of the greatest predictors of longevity! Simple daily lifestyle choices and habits, such as maintaining positive relationships or getting better sleep, can not only improve you’re mental health but also change how your body responds to aging. A long time ago, Plato said, “He who is of a calm and happy nature will hardly feel the pressure of age, but to him who is of an opposite disposition, youth and age are equally a burden.” For more great content, go to livehappy.com or download your free subscription to Live Happy’s award-winning digital edition at livehappy.com/nerium.

So, let’s take Plato’s advice and be calm and happy in nature. This year, replace your frown lines with laugh lines and may you have the best year yet!

How to Live in the Moment

Shared by: http://neriumblog.net/personal-development-2/how-to-live-in-the-moment/

Whether you rang in the New Year cracking open a bottle of champagne, watching fireworks with friends or snuggling on a cozy couch counting down the seconds with the New Year’s Eve ball drop, I hope 2017 ended on a high note while your 2018 is even bigger and better than past years. It sounds great – but how can you do this? Let’s chat about one key strategy to help you have your best year yet!

Start Fresh

The beginning of the year represents the perfect time to set new goals and to start the year with a clean slate. The sky’s the limit! No matter the challenges you faced in 2017, the anticipation of a new year almost always brings expectation, optimism, and a promise of something new (or different) and better. One thing that I am personally focusing on this year is living in the moment! What does “living in the moment” means, exactly, and how can it be the key to ensuring a rich and fulfilling life?

The Power is Yours

To live in the moment simply means you’re doing just that – living in the moment. Instead of obsessing over past wrongs or staying up late stressing about what the future may hold, focus on matters that are important to you now. Doing so will allow you to experience a full and exciting life. Think about it this way: How many times have you gone out with a friend only to spend the evening distracted over an issue at work or in your private life?

Instead of enjoying your experience with someone you care for, you’re replacing what should be positive and rewarding feelings with negative and stressful ones. Besides, events that have occurred in the past and those that will occur in the future are beyond your control. However; being mindful and aware of where and with whom you are now will contribute to the meaning and purpose in your life.

After all, being fully aware and present in everyday life can be extremely beneficial to you personally and professionally. For example, putting your focus entirely on the person standing in front of you will certainly lead to clearer communication which in turn, again, will lead to a stronger connection between you two. In a professional environment, a stronger connection could result in another sale. In a personal environment, a stronger connection could result in a better relationship. Overall, you have a higher probability of achieving success!

Try this! View life as if it’s your own personal catalog from which you get to choose what you want – a successful career (yes, please!), a beautiful home (why not), a loving family (absolutely!). Think about the goal you want to accomplish. Then, focus all your energy on creating the conditions necessary to realize that goal. Isn’t that a super exciting thought? Living every day with purpose.

Life is a Gift

Life doesn’t always go according to plan! Relax! Instead, change your perspective to see and value all the good that’s around you now. Think about it this way:

  • Only you have control over this moment – the present. There’s nothing you can do about the past nor the future. Let it go!
  • Focusing on the present is one sure way to reduce stress. Every time you start worrying about something you must do, stop, and force your mind back to your task at hand.
  • Ultimately, you’ll be able to enjoy living a happier and healthier life.

The most helpful advice I can give you is to start small. It’s not realistic to expect your life to change all at once. You’re setting yourself up for unnecessary struggles. Rather, think about where you want to end up and fine-tune the process that’s going to get you there. Let me give you one final example: if you think your life and mental health can benefit from meditating for 30 minutes a day, start by meditating for five minutes per day and gradually increase your time until you reach your goal of 30 minutes. This reduces a possibility of giving up. Also, by only focusing on the five minutes you must accomplish today reduces the risk of feeling overwhelmed and stressed about adding more to your daily schedule.

Start here

I have so much more on this topic I want to share with you which is why I invite you to continue this conversation on a Facebook Live Event on Tuesday, January 9, at 4:30 p.m. CT. Tune in and let’s chat about some additional tips to help you live in the moment.

In the meantime, here’s your challenge: focus on living 30 minutes at a time for the rest of January. This simply means every time your mind starts to wonder, bring it back to the present by telling yourself to focus only on the next 30 minutes. Once the time is up, tell yourself to focus on the next 30 minutes, and so on! The goal is to disengage your mind from unnecessary daily clutter and work on being the best you can be in the moment!

I’ll leave you with the words of Albert Einstein: “Out of clutter find simplicity; from discord find harmony; in the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” All you have to do is be aware of it!

On January 9 at 4:30 p.m. CT, click on the LIVE event displayed at the top of my Facebook page. You can share this link http://bit.ly/2xDzRx9 with your friends and family. Remind them that to watch this video, they’ll need to LIKE my page first!

Let me give you one final example: if you think your life and mental health can benefit from meditating for 30 minutes a day, start by meditating for five minutes per day and gradually increase your time until you reach your goal of 30 minutes. This reduces a possibility of giving up. Also, by only focusing on the five minutes you must accomplish today reduces the risk of feeling overwhelmed and stressed about adding more to your daily schedule.

Start here

I have so much more on this topic I want to share with you which is why I invite you to continue this conversation on a Facebook Live Event on Tuesday, January 9, at 4:30 p.m. CT. Tune in and let’s chat about some additional tips to help you live in the moment.

In the meantime, here’s your challenge: focus on living 30 minutes at a time for the rest of January. This simply means every time your mind starts to wonder, bring it back to the present by telling yourself to focus only on the next 30 minutes. Once the time is up, tell yourself to focus on the next 30 minutes, and so on! The goal is to disengage your mind from unnecessary daily clutter and work on being the best you can be in the moment!

I’ll leave you with the words of Albert Einstein: “Out of clutter find simplicity; from discord find harmony; in the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” All you have to do is be aware of it!

The Power of the New Year!

Nerium International Vice President of Marketing Patricia Finn talks about New Year’s resolutions and harnessing the power of planning!

 

With the advent of the new year, it’s time to think about what 2018 will hold and what goals you’d like to achieve.

If you’re like me, in years past, I’ve let the new year come and go without giving serious thought to what I truly wanted to accomplish in the coming year. What I’ve learned from that approach is that if you don’t set measurable goals and objectives for yourself, you most likely won’t plan to accomplish those goals. If you don’t map out a plan, you don’t set yourself up for success. Why? Because success and accomplishments don’t just fall into your lap. Think about one significant moment in your life and how you got there. Odds are, the reason you’re so proud of that accomplishment is that you worked hard to reach it. And, if you worked for it, by definition, you planned for it.

Intentions aren’t actions

Here’s a personal example: In high school, I ran track, played volleyball and tennis; I was in great shape. But in college, I stopped working out. After graduation, at the beginning of each year, I’d tell myself this was the year I was going to start getting back in shape. I believed it. Until the next year rolled around and I hadn’t done anything. So, I made the same promise to myself the next year and the next. This cycle continued for two decades. This past year, though, was different. I wrote down all my priorities. Living a healthy life and exercising was still on my list. But, I had to stop and think, should it really be on my list? I mean, if I kept writing down that exercising was one of my top priorities, then why wasn’t I doing it?

Plan your work and work your plan

I started making a list of reasons I wasn’t working out. Lists are a great way to put some order around all the thoughts running through your head! My reasons included: not wanting to go to a gym, not wanting to get up early to drive to a gym, not knowing the proper way to use the equipment, and not wanting to exercise after a full day at the office or wake up early on weekends. All pretty simple issues to solve, but for some reason, as hard as I tried, I couldn’t seem to get into a consistent workout routine. So, for 2017 I decided to try a different approach.

If at first you don’t succeed…

In 2017, I came up with a plan. I decided to hire a personal trainer to come to my house. I got a reference from a friend and found a great trainer I could afford. I arranged for him to come to my house Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 6:30 a.m. This solved the problem of not wanting to get up at 5:45 a.m. for a 6:30 a.m. class and not wanting to drive to a gym. Plus, it added an essential element to completing my goal: accountability. Believe me, this took some getting used to. I’m not going to lie, I’m not a morning person, and getting up and being ready at 6:30 a.m. for a workout was a huge adjustment. In the beginning, there were at least a handful of times I answered the door to greet my trainer still in my pajamas! I was obviously embarrassed that I wasn’t ready, but with no way to get out of the appointment, I quickly changed into workout clothes and got to it. It turns out, that’s what it took.

Persistence pays off

It used to be a real struggle to get up and ready to work out. Now, I’m up, reading the news with a cup of coffee before my trainer arrives. Now that my body is in better shape, it’s had a domino effect on my overall well-being. I’m eating better – incorporating more fruits and vegetables into my diet. I’m also augmenting my workouts and healthier meals along with Nerium’s wellness supplements, including our Youth Factor Vitality Complex and Youth Factor Superfood & Antioxidant Boost Powder. The Youth Factor combo is an easy way to keep me feeling my best. The tablet helps me boost my energy and primes my body to get all the benefits out of the powder. The powder, on the other hand, is perfect for on-the-go nutrients. In the stick pack form, I can take the Youth Factor Powder with me anywhere I go – to the office, in the car, and on flights. It’s an easy way to keep me feeling healthy and energized on the inside while I rely on Nerium Age-Defying Night and Day Creams, Double-Cleansing Botanical Face Wash and Eye-V Moisture Boost Hydrogel Patches to keep me looking good on the outside!

My father used to tell me that there are only two things you can’t replace in life. One is your education and the second is your health. So, with the start of a new year, I hope you take the opportunity to focus on your health, both inside and out and on any other goals you’ve been waiting to tackle. Today’s the day to harness the power of the new year!!
