Using CBD to achieve balance and wellness.
If you’re anything like me then finding balance in your day to day life isn’t always the easiest task. Did you know that the average American worker gets just over 10 minutes of work done before getting distracted by something, whether it’s important or not? More than 40% of Americans admit to browsing the internet while watching TV, and nearly half of us check our email at the movie theater (so not cool by the way!) My point is that even our “down time” is consumed by juggling tasks and causes our efforts to lead a healthy, balanced lifestyle fall by the wayside. So how do you maintain balance in your life when all your daily stressors seem to throw you off track? A healthy diet, quality sleep, and staying active are all important factors. But there are some other easy decisions anyone can make to imbue their day with a little extra balance, like integrating CBD into their daily wellness routine.
What is CBD?
CBD is one of the many cannabinoid compounds present in cannabis. Unlike its more well-known cousin THC, CBD is not intoxicating, meaning it doesn’t produce the head-swimming highs that are often associated with cannabis consumption. Research shows that CBD has a ton of potential health benefits. One area where CBD shows a lot of promise is the treatment of anxiety. Recent studies suggest that CBD could provide relief for generalized anxiety, social anxiety, OCD, PTSD, and a host of related issues. Cbd products are also climbing the popularity ladder for minor aches and pains. Whether you slept on your back the wrong way or suffer from a chronic condition, CBD can stop the pain from running the show. How to make CBD work for you I think we can all agree on how hectic life gets and adding another daily regimen can sound like a daunting proposition. I mean, who can blame you? After all, we’re already counting our steps, hitting the gym, trying to eat healthily, pay the bills and raise families all while getting a full 8 hours of sleep. (Or at least attempting too) With that much to keep track of, who’s got the time to add one more item into their wellness to-do-list? Well, you do! So does pretty much everyone else to as it turns out. You see, CBD happens to be an easy step to add when you want and how you want. There are so many options when taking CBD such as topical ointments, tinctures, and edibles. It’s not some complicated, drawn-out process that consumes your time. You can easily add CBD into your day in under a minute, and at your leisure. Pain in your knees? Rub a topical on it. Having a bit of an anxious morning? Take a few drops from your tincture. The benefits and relief you will get from adding CBD into your routine will far exceed any annoying, daunting thoughts about an “extra” step. Like any healthy habit, CBD and its benefits will accrue over time. The more relaxing days and nights you start to have, you’ll notice that your mind and body will feed off one another and in due time you will gain a sense of just plain feeling better. Creating a healthy lifestyle can certainly be a long road to go down, in fact, it’s a road that is everlasting-but every step counts. Whether you suffer from anxiety, a working mom or a senior struggling with arthritis, CBD is an easy way to help create a healthier, more balanced life. It’s your choice.
LIVE BETTER. ENJOY MORE.
