The importance of routine

Do you follow a daily routine? Perhaps you wake up at a set time every morning, eat breakfast, shower and drive to work or get the kids ready. You couldn’t imagine going about your day without some kind of schedule. Some people may be so used to their routine that they go with the flow, almost desensitized to the “how” and/or the “why”.

Then there are others who may think routines are boring, maybe unimaginative. They “wing it” day in and day out, without a schedule. Personally, this would make me stressed and overwhelmed. I would be afraid I may fall short of my goals.

In the direct selling industry, having a routine is important. It can help improve productivity and take business to the next level. When you follow a routine, you almost don’t have to think about it. Like showering, it will become … well … routine.

“I began to realize how simple life could be if one had a regular routine to follow with fixed hours and very little original thinking to do.” – Roald Dahl

Are you setting yourself up for success with a routine? Just as you take products by PURE at designated times during the day for optimal benefit, having a set schedule for business activities helps you achieve your long-term goals.

Route to routine. It’s important to schedule the activities at set times every day, otherwise you may forget to do them and are more apt to put them off. That’s when they fail to become habits.

  • Block time on your calendar each day for your PURE business
  • Check your email and VBO for PURE corporate updates
  • Call at least three prospects every day
  • Follow up with previous contacts
  • Educate yourself on the products and the opportunity – benefits, advantages, etc.
  • Check the events page on livepure.com and plan on attending corporate events and find meetings in your area.
  • Get a family member or friend involved to keep you accountable.
  • Step back every once in a while to evaluate what you’re doing. Is it working in your favor?
  • Celebrate your achievements.

Benefits of routine. You will benefit, in a big way!

  • Efficiency – You’ll know what to expect and what comes next.
  • Structure – You’ll establish a flow and it will feel comfortable.
  • Time – You will actually save time rather than run out of it because you’ll be more productive.
  • Habits – You will form good ones and break bad ones.
  • Proficiency – You will check off everything on your to-do list.
  • Momentum – You gain speed as you go about your daily tasks.

Take a good look at your day and see where you may be falling short. Where can you implement a routine?

What does your day look like? Share you secrets to success.

 

Digital payments are the way of the future

Do you carry around coins in your wallet, or even dollar bills? Or, are all of your transactions done via a mobile device? Technology is advancing faster than one can say “dollar.” Soon, you’ll be able to leave your wallet and debit/credit cards at home.

A Statista report cites that digital payments in the U.S. accounted for $645 billion dollars in 2016 – that’s 29% of global transaction volume.  With the U.S. leading the technology development and innovation for digital payments, the estimated growth rate for usage is 13% over the next five years.1

The future of mobile pay is here.

In an effort to remain at the top of technological advancements, provide convenience and ensure security, PURE is offering a new way to receive commission payments. It’s called Digital Pay and it’s faster than being mailed a check, with no delays, hassles, losses or fees.

With Digital Pay, your commission payments will be transferred electronically into your bank account on the same day or the next business day, depending on the receiving bank and time of day.

How does Digital Pay work?

Enrollees who joined PURE prior to July 9, 2018, have the choice to enroll in Digital Pay or opt-out and continue to receive check fees. We encourage you to opt-in to Digital Pay by July 30, 2018 to avoid the extra $10 check fee.

With Digital Pay, receive payments in four easy steps.

  1. Update your email address
    Ensure your email address is current and correct on your PURE account. It must be the first email, which is the primary email on the account. Emails on multiple accounts are not eligible to receive Digital Pay.
  2. Call the Sales Support Team
    Call our friendly representatives to opt in. PURE will send you a text message with instructions on how to receive your money.
  3. Enroll
    Fill out the attached form from PURE and send back.
  4. Get Paid and Accept Payment
    Money is deposited into your bank account, often within minutes, depending on where you bank.

Please note that IBOs who registered with PURE on or after July 10, 2018, do not need to opt-in by calling Sales Support. Their default payment method is set to Digital Pay upon enrollment. If they would like to receive check payments, they will have to opt-out of Digital Pay by calling Sales Support, and will be charged a $10 check fee starting on July 31, 2018.

What does this mean for your PURE business?

Digital Pay allows you and your enrollees to get paid quickly, it reduces check fraud and it lowers everyone’s cost. We are always innovating, whether it’s with our products or services, to help make your life healthier and easier.

If you have any questions, please contact Sales Support at 866-535-5888 or salessupport@livepure.com.

Habits that sabotage your weight management goals

Do you feel like you’re making lifestyle changes, but not seeing the results you’d like? There could be many reasons why the scale won’t budge or your clothes aren’t fitting well.

Simple habits like not drinking enough water or not getting adequate sleep can throw off your best intentions. Read on for some common habits that could sabotage your health goals.

Skipping meals: A common misconception is that skipping meals saves calories. Studies suggest that skipping meals is linked to abdominal weight gain.1 People who end up skipping a meal may be already hungry and may not always reach for the healthiest option.

Some people may choose to replace a meal with either 360 Complete Shake or Matcha Vegan Shake. Each 160-calorie serving of 360 Complete Shake features proprietary Craving-Control Technology to help support weight loss. Matcha Vegan Shake is a lean plant-based protein shake that contains 180 calories per serving. Ceremonial matcha, sacha inchi and chlorella offer a nourishing, protein-rich, drink that helps support weight management and sustained energy.*

Try making this Summer Protein Shake for breakfast or an afternoon snack.

Poor sleep habits: Sleep is essential for overall health. It allows your body to rest and repair itself. Poor sleep raises cortisol levels and affects hormones regulating hunger which can affect your ability to lose weight.2 Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep a night. MelaTrim sleep and weight-loss support is a combination of melatonin, herbs and a metabolic-boosting blend that help the body burn calories naturally while sleeping.*

Too many liquid calories: People who drink sugary beverages do not feel as full as if they had eaten the same calories from solid food.3 Calories from pre-made smoothies; coffee with cream and sugar; and sweetened sodas, teas and waters all contribute to weight gain. Consume liquid calories in moderation. Switch from calorie- and sugar-laden drinks to ENERGY drink mix which contains antioxidants, botanicals and natural sources of caffeine, or drink plain or fruit-infused water. If you choose juice, make sure its 100% fruit juice.

Not drinking enough water: Hydrating with water always does a body good. Drinking adequate water helps boost your metabolism, cleanses your body of waste and helps you feel full, which suppresses appetite.

Poor stress management: Healthy living and weight management are not only about a clean diet and exercise program. Chronic stress can undermine health and weight loss efforts. Stress affects your cortisol levels, blood pressure, heart rate, immune function, digestion and hormones and may lead to emotional eating.4 L-theanine, an amino acid found in green tea, combined with adaptogenic herbs in Metabolic ONE can produce a calming effect, helping to alleviate stress eating. In addition, the ingredients in Metabolic ONE help your body utilize insulin more effectively, helping to curb appetite.* Find different ways to manage stress such as taking walks, doing yoga, calling a friend or seeking support.

Opting for low-fat or fat-free foods: You really aren’t making healthier choices when you purchase these items. As manufacturers create low-fat versions of foods, they have to increase the amount of sugar in them so we still enjoy their taste.5 Manufacturers also add artificial flavoring and processed ingredients. Instead, focus on eating whole foods that contain healthy fats, like yogurt, salmon, raw nuts and avocados.

Check out some healthy recipes here.

Fueling up with energy bars or sports drinks: If you snack on these during exercise, know that many of them pack in the calories and added sugar and are not necessary. Instead, opt for any of our GPS sports performance products which provide energy and support before, during and after your workouts.

Try making these Complete Shake Protein Bars or Lemon Blast ENERGY Granola Bars, for a healthy, filling snack in between reps.

If you are trying to lose weight, and falling short, it’s time rethink your habits and incorporate some of the above tips. And, don’t be fooled if the numbers on the scale aren’t moving down. You may be likely losing inches, and gaining lean body mass, which is a move in the right direction!

Whole Health and our freedom of choice

There’s a famous quote from Winston Churchill that says, “Healthy citizens are the greatest asset any nation can have.”1 We should reflect on this in the United States as we prepare to celebrate our day of independence.

We should think about all the blessings we have been bestowed, and be thankful for the countless freedoms we get to enjoy: the freedom to vote, the freedom of speech and the freedom of religion. We also have the freedom to choose how we care for ourselves and each other.

What does Whole Health look like to you?

Maybe it’s an understanding of how your body functions and responds to the environment. It could simply be a state of mind. Perhaps it means being balanced in all areas of your life … work, exercise, rest, and having a social network, family and friends. At PURE, we are on a mission to deliver Whole Health. One way is by providing products based on the best of science and nature. We believe in the body’s natural ability to heal itself, inside and out, and it all starts with giving the body what it needs.

Everything in our lives is directly affected by how we care for ourselves. We have the freedom to eat what we want, to get proper exercise, to surround ourselves with the right people, to get enough sleep and to avoid stress. It is up to us to make those decisions.

Remember that along with that freedom of choice comes the responsibility to extend that freedom into the lives of others. As a PURE Independent Business Owner, you know what health looks like and how to achieve optimal well-being, and it is your right to share that with others.

Apply Whole Health to your business, too.

To quote Winston Churchill again, “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”

As a servant leader, you lead by lifting others up. You understand that success means putting others needs before yours and helping them perform as highly as possible. It’s that leadership philosophy that we embrace at PURE.

So, as you gather with friends and family this holiday weekend, remember how lucky we are to have the freedom to choose a healthy lifestyle. Share that with the larger community and make an impact.

To help celebrate our freedom, buy one GoYin bottle (GP11001) and get one for  $4 at checkout, now through Friday, July 6, 2018.* A CORE4 product, GoYin can help you balance your mood and stress levels while enhancing your well-being.**

Use GoYin in your summer recipes, share it with a friend or give a bottle to a local troop or veteran. Check out these GoYin popsicles to make and share.

To order, visit shop.livepure.com, contact SalesSupport@livepure.com or call 866-535-3888.

May your Independence Day be filled with happiness and Whole Health.

 

*While supplies last. Not available for Autoship. No PV for the $4 bottle. U.S. only. Not eligible for GoYin On the Go packs and 4 pack.

Vacation at your healthiest

It’s officially summer and that means it’s time to pack your bags and explore the world, or your own backyard!

Whether you are a weekend warrior or an international traveler, the adventure is good for your health. Traveling relaxes your body, challenges your mind and broadens your horizons. Travel also comes with its stressors, so it’s a good idea to take care of yourself while you’re away.

Take control of your health while traveling.

Hydration: Our bodies are made up of about 60% water, so the importance of drinking water cannot be stressed enough. Water flushes out toxins and provides cushioning for our joints. Being in the dry air of a plane, combined with the increase in altitude, contributes to a loss of moisture levels and dehydration. Drink at least eight ounces of water per hour and avoid alcohol and caffeine as they both dehydrate your body. Try adding a Hydrate stick to plain or coconut water for B vitamins, potassium and electrolytes.

Extra Activity: Don’t stray from your fitness routine while you travel. If you have an afternoon flight, get up early and squeeze in a walk or extra workout. Since you’ll be sitting on your flight, wear comfortable shoes and walk the terminal to make sure you get your steps in. Whether your flight is four or 18 hours, make sure you get up and walk the aisle during your flight. After landing and settling in, visit the hotel gym.

Sunscreen: Don’t leave home without it. Look for sunscreens with both UVA and UVB protection. When selecting one, buy a minimum of SPF 30+. If you are going to be in the sun, apply sunscreen 30 minutes before exposure, and be sure to reapply every two hours.1

Stress Management: Allowing time for the commute to the airport, long security lines and potential flight delays can add stress which weakens our immune systems. It can be difficult waiting around, but practicing a bit of patience goes a long way.

  • Allow plenty of time to get to the airport and be prepared for long lines.
  • Check the weather and keep an eye on your flight to ensure you don’t miss any important notifications, such as delays and gate changes.
  • Remember to focus on deep belly breaths when you feel tensions rise.
  • Pack GoYin On the Go to help bring your body into balance and enhance your well-being*
  • Listen to music, get lost in a good book, pack plenty of activities for the kids, and remember, sometimes things just come up, so allow for some flexibility.
  • And if you’re ever stuck wondering how to make the most out of a difficult travel situation, this guy got stuck in the airport overnight and made a music video. Enjoy the laughs, which also relieve tension.

Plan meals in advance: Travel with your own food. Not only can you save money but you can watch your calorie intake while making sure you eat the most nourishing foods. Bring some low sugar, high protein bars, jerky, raw nuts, dried fruit and an apple and peanut butter. Pack a sandwich with chicken or turkey on a gluten-free wrap and plenty of veggies. Eat before your flight, too.

Sleep: Don’t wait to pack the night before. You need a solid 7-8 hours of sleep. Research has shown that skimping on sleep makes you even more susceptible to catching a virus. When you’re on the plane, take a pillow and eye mask to catch up on some sleep. Bring along some MelaTrim capsules to help relax your body mentally and physically.* This is best when taken at night.

Take Your Vitamins: Daily Build is a must. With 23 essential vitamins and minerals, Daily Build provides broad spectrum antioxidant protection as well as cardiovascular, blood glucose, brain and nervous system and immune support.*

One more tip: Wash your hands regularly and sanitize your area often. Travel with wipes to clean off the tray table, head rest and arm rest on the plane. Carry our travel-size, 2 oz. bottle of Skin Defense to spray on your hands to keep them clean. Also, bring your own pillow and/or blanket as germs tend to lurk on the ones provided on the plane.

Staying on top of your health will ensure that you’re not spending your hard-earned vacation fighting off a cold and missing time with your family.

Everyone has their own tips and tricks, so let us know on Facebook how you stay healthy when traveling during the summer.
