Being stuck in the house for an extended period of time can drive the best of us a little crazy, and it can also start to produce symptoms such as moodiness, anxiety and more. Scientists say this can be attributed to the lack of vitamin D from being outdoors, as vitamin D directly affects our serotonin levels. It’s no wonder that this has left millions of us across the globe trying to figure out ways to boost our spirits – we’ve all experienced the realization that we need to put a little more effort into daily positive mental stimulation.
Here’s how you can help yourself and develop healthier lifestyle habits:
Have you noticed that you bring more energy to the things that you place your focus on? Maybe you’ve even thought about someone and they called, or you had an idea and the universe conveniently opened up a door for you? Yes, you have the power to place your focus on a task and achieve greater success, and your mental state is no exception! Start your day off with some mindful, positive affirmations. What do you want to accomplish? How will you get there? Tell yourself that you can make anything happen as you wake up each morning, ready to take on the day.
Reward yourself for a full day of focus with our original mixed berry CBD gummies. These are our classic gummies, filled with 5mg of high-quality CBD hemp extract that is both vegan friendly and completely free of GMO’s. A couple CBD gummies per day will keep your daily quality of life in tip-top condition, which is going to make you more eager to face your daily challenges!
Cycles of negativity are an easy trap to fall into. Being negative can be such a subconscious action for some of us that we don’t even realize we’re doing it. This is because your brain is hardwired to the habits that you’ve developed, and your thought process is no exception. It’s kind of like when you’re driving home and you zone out, then you reach your destination without having any real recollection of the trip. You’ve subconsciously programmed yourself into that action.
So, how can you break free from habits that are cycles of negativity? Make sure to set aside time to disconnect from outside influences that evoke negative emotions. Yes, that may mean decreasing your social media intake, as well as personal phone calls with that friend who is always up to date on the latest gossip and/or conspiracy theories that freak you out. Even making the effort to stop negative thoughts right in their tracks and immediately switch to a positive thought could be greatly beneficial. It takes approximately 21 days to establish a habit. So, give yourself some time to “rewire” your brain to work for you, not against you. Since you’re detoxing your mental processes, why not indulge in a Detox CBD Salt Bath? This bath contains 100mg of CBD and celtic sea salts, which provide an abundance of minerals that your body can soak up as you enjoy a relaxing aromatherapy session.
Change The Way You Eat
You might not know this, but your eating habits can have a direct impact on your attitude. When you eat unhealthy foods and don’t take in the correct amount of nutrients and essential vitamins, you can become agitated and uncomfortable. Your body relies on the vitamins and minerals that healthy foods provide, so it can become an issue when your diet consists of salty, processed foods instead of those that contain fresh, natural ingredients.
In order to feel better, you have to focus on eating better. We know, cheeseburgers and nachos can be much more appealing than a salad, but your body will forever be grateful for the change in diet that you instill. Once you’ve made the necessary changes and are beginning to eat healthier, you can add even more products to your diet that contain the vitamins and minerals that your body needs. Try out our Apple Cider Vinegar CBD Gummies, which are packed with organically grown CBD, as well as ACV that’s designed that provide you with all of the vinegar’s benefits and none of its harsh taste!
Feelings of isolation can be brutal, which is why it’s of the utmost importance to stay connected with your family and friends, especially if you live alone. You can take advantage of Zoom, go on a walk to get some fresh air, or even enjoy some self-care video-chat fun with your loved ones.
There’s no better way to have some much-needed social time than for you and your loved ones to indulge in our CBD Face Mask Bundle! Connect over snacks, drinks and good memories while 50mg of broad spectrum CBD saturate your pores with handpicked botanical extracts. Your face will soak up all the goodness the mask has to offer in only 10 minutes, and you don’t even need to rinse! That leaves you with even more time to connect with loved ones.
Stretch It Out
It’s easy for the muscles in our bodies to tighten up as we shuffle around our homes each day. This is especially true for those who work from home. To keep your body and mind moving the way you’d like, employ morning and evening stretches paired with deep breathing. When you stretch, you release endorphins, which is a great method for tackling all sorts of physical discomforts. It can provide mental relief and improve your posture as well.
Don’t worry if your body is a little sore; our CBD Muscle Balm is the perfect product to use before and after any stretching session. Its peppermint and wintergreen essential oils provide a cooling sensation that your muscles will adore. Many of us simply write off feeling tight and sore, but if you ignore those distressed muscles, you might develop other symptoms such as numbness and tingling sensations. You don’t want a simple discomfort to snowball into something more serious, so get to stretching and soon you’ll feel as good as you look!
Developing healthy habits can feel difficult at first, but with a little hard work and focus, you’ll notice drastic improvements to your general wellness in no time!
