Start the Year Off with Slique!

1 December 29, 2014 - Archive

Fitting changes into our busy lifestyles is difficult. Many of us find ourselves committing to better nutrition and workout routines at the first of the year but are back to our bad habits after a few weeks.


Young LivingWith the start of the new year just around the corner, it’s time to try something better. The Slique in 60 Challenge is a more realistic approach to weight management and is specially designed to help you make lasting lifestyle changes. This unique program brings the power of Slique products—tried-and-tested combinations of naturally derived ingredients and pure essential oils—together with a simple and customizable diet and exercise regimen to help you develop better eating habits, more effectively manage your weight*, or both! Here are our Steps for Success:


Step 1: Commit to your weight-management program. 

Any effective weight-management program should include a consistent routine of both exercise and healthy eating habits. Exercise not only helps you manage your weight, but it also improves mood, boosts energy, and promotes better sleep. For most healthy adults, the Department of Health and Human Services recommends getting at least 150 minutes per week of moderate aerobic activity. That’s only 25 minutes per day, 6 days per week, and can include activities like brisk walking, swimming, weight training, or tennis.


We also encourage you to create a meal plan. Eat wholesome, well-balanced meals and drink plenty of water throughout the day. Ensuring that your body receives all the nutrients it needs is an important component of a healthy lifestyle, especially if you are reducing your caloric intake.


Step 2: ChYoung Living Slique, Balance Complete, and NingXia Redoose your Slique collection.

We offer four different Slique collections, each with up to 10 percent savings, as part of our Slique line. You can choose from Slique Maintain, Slique Assist, Slique Advance, or Slique Complete and find the one that best complements your goals.


Step 3: Set a goal using the SMART system.

Apply the principles of SMART goal setting to maximize your chances for success:

  • Specific: Choose a specific goal; e.g., exercise 30 minutes a day rather than “exercise more.”
  • Measurable: Determine how you will measure your goal; e.g., days exercised or miles ran in a week.
  • Accountable: Develop a way to be held accountable; e.g., share your goals with someone who will be supportive of you.
  • Realistic: Make sure your goal is attainable; e.g., exercise 30 minutes a day rather than 2 hours per day.
  • Timeframe: Establish a specific time in which you plan to accomplish your goal; e.g., 30 days, 60 days, etc.


Step 4: Evaluate your progress.

Woman ChoppingMaintain motivation by reviewing your goal on a regular basis. Ask yourself questions like “How am I doing with this goal?” and “Do I need to make any adjustments to my plan?” After this assessment, continue to move forward and use the Slique collection that best matches your goals. You may also customize and supplement with other Young Living products, such as NingXia Nitro and BLM, to help you on your way to success!


Another wonderful benefit of this program is the Slique in 60 Pledge. If you don’t see a change for the better after 60 days of consecutive use, we will give you a product credit equal to the amount of your purchase. That’s how confident we are that this program will work for you!


To help kick-start your goals, we are giving away an entire Slique Complete collection! To enter, leave a comment telling us how you use Young Living products to help reach your health goals. We’ll announce the winner here on Thursday, January 1!

    I have at least five oils near me at all times. As soon as I identify one favorite, I find another I like just as well. My day starts with NingXia Red, then peppermint and valor for tight muscles. Orange is my happy oil. The list just goes on and on.

    i am using young living to help me start a more natural lifestyle. It is my first step in taking charge of my health and well being. I have been a member for two months. My daughter has also signed up. We both love our oils, and look forward to acquiring a bigger collection, and learning more ways to use them in 2015.

We just got our first order of Ningxia red and I am using it on the whole family! It would be amazing to use the slique line and have results that I can share with people!

  • Michael Manley January 1, 2015 - 2:16 am Reply

    I start my breakfast routine every morning with 4 ounces of Ningxia Red and a Ningxia Nitro packet. The results been amazing! I can’t tell you that I’ve lost weight, but I feel incredible! It doesn’t take me hours to fully wake-up, I don’t “need” that morning cup of coffe anymore, and I have noticed a remarkable improvement in my productivity at work! Who says you can’t look forward to those early mornings?

  • Sara Cha January 1, 2015 - 1:29 am Reply

    YL products are an important part of everyday for me. I start the day with Ningxia Red & Nitro (beats the coffee buzz!), then my regulars – Valor, Stress Away, OrthoEase, etc. I carry oils with me everywhere I go – so I can use them, AND SHARE THEM! Thank you YL! Here’s to a great 2015! Being healthier will help me reach my business & personal goals as well.

    Just got a physical at the Dr’s yesterday and apparently I’ve GAINED 10 lbs since last year! Slique Assist here I come! With the help of that and the small exercise “room” we’re setting up in the basement, hopefully those extra pounds will be shed quickly! (PS…I blame all the delicious food consumed over the holidays. Terrible time to have a physical! haha)

  • Trisch Vessar December 30, 2014 - 9:29 pm Reply

    I love discovering new ways to is my YLO starter items and adding to my wish list. Purification for cleansing the hime from pet odor has been a favorite as has Joy. Lavender and peppermint were two I had used before, but can really tell the difference in “brands”. Lovin’ my YLO!

    I just started using YL this November! I see a difference in my cravings by using Slique Essence throughout the day. I always feel more relaxed, get better sleep and enjoy everyday when using all of my oils! I made using EO a lifestyle change. Can’t wait to try more oils and wellness products!! Let’s make 2015 the best year ever!!!

    Thieves is a constant in our diffuser right now. I’ve been using oils as a natural alternative to many things in our home. Slique would be great to get me on the right track to my weight loss goals in 2015
