As we all look to this new year with the hopes of a fresh start, we will need to engage our curiosity of mind and care for our bodies.
CBD can be a big help when it comes to our self-care goals in the new year with its multitude of benefits for body and mind. Supplementing our daily activities with maintenance doses of CBD can help build our resilience during these challenging times.
How Can CBD Help
Research shows that cannabidiol (CBD), the non-psychoactive compound in hemp, can help support the relief of pain, anxiety, muscle spasms, and assist with deeper relaxation and improved sleep. It can also support the body to better mount its inflammatory response.
When we couple CBD with our other wellness morning routines we can amplify the benefits. We know small habits form routines over time. We encourage the use of maintenance doses of CBD (5-10mg) as part of your simple daily activities.
Maintenance doses are meant to guide your system to homeostasis over time. They are a form of preventative wellness coupled with immediate relief of light challenges like aches and pains, stress, and mild anxiety. Here are 5 ways you can couple CBD with other simple practices and up the ante on your self-care goals.
5 Daily Activities You Can Add CBD
ADD CBD TO YOUR MORNING TEA OR COFFEE
Morning rituals set the tone for our day and many of us like to start them off with a hot beverage. Adding a drizzle of Mana CBD Honey to your tea or coffee can help ease you into your day with less anxiety and more clarity of mind. If you prefer an unsweetened CBD, Mana Turmeric Hemp Oil is another good choice.
TAKE CBD BEFORE BED TO ENHANCE YOUR SLEEP
Sleep is one of the most important parts of our self-care routines. This is an arena that CBD shines as it can help calm your mind and relax your body helping you get deeper, more restful sleep. Mana Passionflower Hemp Tincture is a good choice with its added restful passion vine benefits.
COUPLE CBD WITH CHOCOLATE AS AN AFTERNOON SNACK
Chocolate and CBD are a delightful pair. The two make a great afternoon snack that gives you energy, uplifts your mood, and can help you maintain focus through the afternoon doldrums. It’s not a walk on the beach, but it is a tasty little treat that can perk up the end of your workday without the downside of caffeine or lots of sugar. Get the two already combined in a Hawai’i artisan-crafted CBD Dark Chocolate Bar.
ADD CBD TO YOUR BATH
CBD takes the soothing effect of a luxurious hot bath to the next level. We recommend you include a nice essential oil and some sea salt alongside a dose of CBD oil concentrate for maximum enjoyment and benefit.
USE A TOPICAL CBD AFTER YOUR WORKOUT
CBD is readily absorbed through the skin, so applying topical CBD after your workout can help reduce aches and pains and relieve sore, tired muscles. A hemp balm or a CBD body oil will do the trick. A balm is more targeted with a localized application and body oil can be used for a larger area of the body.
CBD can enhance many other daily activities and support you in cultivating your wellness as you start the new year. You will find the best dose for your unique needs and ongoing maintenance through your own adjustments and hopefully enjoy the journey along the way with more calm and less stress.
