As if our lives weren’t inherently stressful already, the onset of the pandemic has only exacerbated people’s mental health. Statistics show that at least 80% of Americans are affected by stress in their daily lives.
And during the lockdown, many of us may have felt lonely and depressed, especially if we are unable to meet our friends and family. Moreover, those who don’t have an ideal home life may find it hard to find ways to accustom to this new normal.
Social distancing has given us some major FOMO because we’ve had to abandon travel plans and even cancel major events such as weddings and other celebrations. Remote working should be called “overworking” from home, since many of us are putting in extra hours and performing double duty as teachers, entertainers, and more.
CBD can be extremely beneficial for relieving symptoms of anxiety and stress, and even for enhancing your mood without giving you the high that’s associated with THC. This is your guide to finding ways to relax with CBD by consciously making time for yourself.
An invigorating massage
If you find yourself spending extra quality time with your partner, you can take this as an opportunity to bond. Invite more romance into your life and use physical touch to express your love with a gentle and romantic massage.
Use a CBD balm or lotion and light up some candles to take a moment to disconnect and check in with each other. A massage can help you reach new levels of intimacy and will make your relationship stronger.
Include it in your diet
In order to achieve more effective results using CBD, get a daily dose of it by incorporating it in your diet. You can either take a drop or two of CBD tincture or oil sublingually in the morning or before bed.
Or you could use CBD oil to make your own CBD recipes—such as brownies and other chocolatey treats—by mixing a few drops in vegetable oil or butter.
The bitterness of CBD oil can be overpowering, but can be subdued with the sweetness of chocolate. You can also add tinctures to your evening tea, coffee, or even your morning smoothie.
Stay at home spa with CBD
Sometimes, we feel more stressed when we haven’t spent enough time with ourselves. Treating yourself to a pampering session with CBD bath and beauty products can help. Draw a bath and put on a soothing playlist while you catch up on light reading, call a friend or even meditate.
