CBD AND SELFCARE
We’ve been hearing a lot about self-care lately and the importance of taking time out for yourself. Is it a buzzword? Perhaps, but what’s true is that everyone encounters stressors, burnout, different emotions, or challenges throughout the days and without having an outlet to decompress, you can start to feel some real, unwanted side effects. Self-care does not look the same for everyone and it’s certainly not a one-size-fits-all. Some people find that they need to practice their self-care routines often and schedule important time out of the day. Others may feel that they can do with incorporating it sporadically because who needs another schedule? Whatever the case, self-care has some powerful emotional, physical, and mental benefits that no one can afford to go without so be it daily or weekly, finding your zen time is important!
Thinking about self-care and acting on a self-care routine, are completely different. The goal is to incorporate calm, balance, and peace into your life. I get it, you might feel a little lost or unsure of what self-care would work for you. In fact, I don’t even really like the word “routine” alongside self-care, so scrap that. Start out by thinking small and don’t get caught up with what everyone else is doing for self-care, as what works for one might not work for another. Calling a friend, taking a walk on your lunch hour, grabbing your favorite coffee to go, waking up 30 minutes early to sit and drink your morning coffee or tea are some small examples of taking a minute for yourself. And while these are small ideas, they have impacts on our emotional and physical well-being. Take time to think about what would bring you the most peace into your life. Honestly, you will most likely have some trial and error, but you may also learn a little bit more about yourself along the way.
Once you have found ways to de-stress and focus on yourself spiritually and mentally, you may want to try incorporating CBD into your daily routine as well. CBD on its own has some very powerful benefits to our physical and mental well-being. Studies (insert link: Best CBD Oil for Mental Health – June 2021 – CBD Clinicals) show much promise for CBD, and coupled with activities that help promote calm and balance into your life – could be a game-changer.
