If you’re like many other people, you’ve realized how much better it can be to work from home. Here’s why CBD and remote work are the perfect pairing!

There’s nothing quite like working from home, is there? The commute couldn’t be easier, your pets get to distract you as much as they please, and you have overwhelming control over which sweatpants and socks you’d like to don for each important meeting. That said, it isn’t without its challenges.
As all that freedom stretches out before you at the beginning of each day, it can be difficult to choose how we allocate our time. Unlike the office, there’s likely a couch with your name on it in front of a television with snacks in close proximity. Suddenly, that open field of possibility is rigged with landmines. What would be so bad about turning off that alarm altogether and enjoying three or four more hours of sleep? Maybe, instead of the usual lunch, you could put in some time perfecting that 6-hour Bolognese you’ve been dreaming of each night. You could even try out a video happy-hour with the friends at 10am, something you’ve always dreamt of! You’ve got the whole day ahead of you to get your work done.
Jokes aside, the beauty of it all is that, in theory, you can have your cake and eat it, too. Studies have shown that workers are actually more productive on average when working from home, and a big part of that is our ability to take breaks throughout the day. This actually helps productivity. One study in particular shows that when compared to working in the office, a remote employee is able to clock 1.4 days of productivity per month when compared to their commuting counterparts. That adds up to over three weeks of extra productivity over the course of a year!
There are challenges to overcome and opportunities to embrace when it comes to working from home, and CBD makes a beautiful addition to figuring out your perfect alchemy. Here’s how!
If you’re working from home, you’re likely spending a lot of time sitting. Without that daily hike to the car in the morning, exercise can be sorely missed, and if you’re not careful, that can turn into an “all day, everyday” kind of lifestyle. Fortunately there are a bevy of online workout videos, a large chunk of which are free. Once you’ve found your perfect fit, it’s possible that you’re going to experience some soreness. After all, discomfort is an important step toward success, and we’ve got the perfect item for you to add to your daily pre and post workout routines: Muscle & Joint CBD Hemp Cream! Available in 500mg and 1000mg CBD concentrations, our hemp cream also contains powerful botanical extracts such as white willow bark and caffeine that have proven to be effective in the soothing of minor aches and pains in your muscles and joints.
Another way in which you can maximize your time at home is by ensuring that you’re getting all the right vitamins and minerals. This is especially important if you’re cooking all your own meals and don’t always have balanced ingredients on deck. We recently came out with multivitamin gummies, formulated for men and women, that contain an array of essential vitamins and nutrients alongside high-quality CBD!
#2. Creativity & Innovation
An interesting aspect of working from home is that the support structure built into an office environment is gone. Now, this may sound like a deficiency, but it’s actually shown to contribute to workers’ creativity and innovation, especially for those on smaller teams and within smaller companies. Due to this form of self-reliance, we’re prompted to come up with innovative solutions that we might not have otherwise discovered while working in a more traditional setting.
While this has its pros, it also has its cons. The sudden need to create new solutions and new ideas comes with its own set of complications. The trick, however, is to find that sweet spot: the perfect balance between comfort and discomfort. This balance often yields the most inspiration, and it can best be accomplished through the management of energy, focus and balance. Here to help is our Blue Dream Terpenes Vape Pen. This pen provides the not-too-sweet blueberry flavor profile of a highly popular cannabis strain, while allowing you to enjoy 100% organic, broad spectrum CBD. Its fruity appeal will be exactly the type of inspiration that you need to get the ball rolling each day.
It’d be unfair to say that working in an office doesn’t also have its perks. While we might not actually be able to think of any, in the name of humility, we’re prepared to acknowledge the possibility of their existence. One of the definite downsides of working in an office is the way it seems to limit the attainment of our dreams. Let’s say you really wanted to apply a relaxing face mask while you answered afternoon emails. In an office, you’d never dream of it. At home? Well, you have all the power in the world to do so. Certain liberties simply don’t extend themselves to work outside of your home, and that can sometimes include treating your skin to our masks and other skincare products throughout the day.
Another benefit of working from home is that you don’t need to wait until the end of the day to relax and treat yourself to a warm, soothing bath. Why not indulge in some spa day pleasures at noon? No matter how hard you might try, we guarantee you won’t come up with a strong argument against this perk. Next time you’re feeling like a little midday pick-me-up, integrate our CBD-infused tranquil bath salt into your day. You can return to work when you’re rested and relaxed, allowing you to experience a lovely second wind. There’s nothing quite like feeling effective in the afternoon without needing to guzzle a sixth cup of post-lunch coffee.
