The holiday season is finally here! And that means magical winter wonderlands, classic-movie marathons, hot chocolate and time spent under the mistletoe. But… it can also mean stressful times – fighting huge crowds at the mall, missing important flights, not having enough time or money to everything you want to do… Whatever your holidays look like, CBD can help. Here’s how:
your body craves balance and routine
The #1 way that CBD can help you de-stress is by promoting a state of balance. The way to achieve this is through consistency and routine, which the body responds extremely well too. Luckily, CBD does too. This is a simple way of understanding how CBD works in your body. By using it regularly, it can help your body naturally promote balance (homeostasis) and put it’s systems of health back in order.
use cbd to bring you back to center
CBD preserves balance, but it also enhances focus. It does this by working with a natural system in your body called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Every single mammal has an endocannabinoid system and its primary role in the body is to regulate the body’s other systems, such as the immune and nervous system. However, the ECS can only get its balancing job done if it has a steady stream of cannabinoids to support it! That’s why incorporating CBD into your life as a daily self-care routine can be a simple way to stay in touch and balance with yourself over the holidays.
De-stressing is extremely important for keeping both physical and mental health aligned. It can look like a number of things and is unique to the individual – reading a book, soaking in a sudsy bubble bath, or a simple evening spent sitting on your couch, journaling. Do whatever it is that puts you into your best state of mind, and let CBD work with you to achieve that balance.
