CBD and Mental Wellness

Mental wellness has finally entered the popular arena and is being discussed more openly among friends, families, and doctors. The more mental health is talked about, the more it’s destigmatized. Being able to spread the word about mental health encourages people to get the help they need when they’re not quite feeling like themselves. 

Much like bodily health, mental wellness requires daily maintenance. Adequate sleep, rest, exercise, and time with loved ones are great ways to take care of yourself. Ultimately, mental wellness all boils down to self-care. As part of your self-care routine, consider adding a broad spectrum CBD product, like Chill CBD Gummies, into your daily routine. Here’s how CBD can enhance your ability to focus on your mental wellness.

Maintain A Workout Schedule With CBD

It’s hard to stick to a workout regimen—even if you know it’s good for your mental health—if your muscles are having a difficult time recovering. Feeling unable to work out to your full extent might leave you feeling defeated, which is the opposite of how a good workout should make you feel. Including rest days in your routine is very important, as well as getting the appropriate amount of sleep. 

Like Jess Sims says in her Peloton classes, “working out is a privilege.” However, if your body feels like it’s rebelling, you won’t have a very smooth go of it. That’s why it might be time to try products, like Extended Release CBD Gel Capsules, which can help support your muscular recovery. Broad Spectrum CBD has been shown to improve exercise-induced stress. Taking CBD gel capsules can help you reap all of the rewards of the natural endorphins that exercise naturally releases by supporting your body post-workout.

Unwind With CBD

If your best friend came to you and said, “I’ve had a rough day,” you probably wouldn’t say, “just ignore it and go on with your evening as usual.” So, why should you tell yourself to just, “suck it up, buttercup?” When you’ve had a particularly challenging day, an important part of self-love and self-care is taking the time to do something nice for yourself. It’s important to treat yourself like you’d treat your best friend.

At night, you can unwind by making yourself some CBD moon milk. The warm milk and spices will be comforting, while peppermint CBD adds great flavor and will help to balance your endocannabinoid system. Taking the small amount of time you’ll need to prepare yourself a beverage is time spent investing in yourself. If you don’t feel like you have the time or the ingredients to make something delicious, take a Chill CBD Gummy instead. It’s a calming treat that won’t take more than a few seconds to chew, but any extra time spent on your wellbeing will boost your self-perception. If you anticipate you’re going to have a difficult time sleeping, do something about it by taking the time to unwind. Take control in the areas of your life where you can. 

Give Yourself A Boost

Being with friends and family is important, but if you’re an introvert it can take a lot of energy to participate in social events. In order to get the boost you need to contribute to fun dinnertime banter, consider packing a Boost CBD Gel Capsule or a Balance CBD Gel Capsule depending on your specific needs. The superfoods in the Boost capsules put some pep in your step, while the Balance capsules help you feel more in your element, which can be useful if your loved ones sometimes make you feel a little off-kilter. 

Spread The Word

If you find that adding CBD to your routine gives you an easy way to incorporate self care, share it with your friends and family—who are above the age of 21—at your next gathering by bringing a fun dish that incorporates CBD. You can spread the word by making a lemon CBD vinaigrette for a salad or by adding lavender isolate CBD drops to lemonade. Introducing your loved ones to something that works for you encourages them to consider their own self care. 

Mental wellness is complex. There’ll be ups and downs, because it’s the human experience. Even when life gets hard, the best thing you can do is put in the extra effort to take care of yourself. Whether that’s adding CBD to your life, putting on your gym shoes to work out, or even just finding it in yourself to brush your teeth, you’re worth the extra time.
