NEW YEAR, NEW YOU
Be a Healthier and Happier You
It’s that time of year again. The beginning. The fresh start. The time to set new goals for yourself. The time to start being better. It’s time for those New Year’s resolutions. It can be quite easy to stick to your new goals in the beginning. You are right out the gate and feeling motivated. Excitement is in the air and you feel tingly all over. You are determined to be healthier, to be more active, to be more productive. Somewhere along the line, however, that determination fades. Did you know that most people give up on their new year’s resolutions after the first month? What happens to all of that fierce determination, that newfound willpower? Well… stress happens. Anxiety happens. Pain happens. Just plain old life happens. The truth is, any goal can be hard to reach without the right foundation. No, I am not going to suggest that CBD is going to be the magical answer to getting everything your heart desires. Wouldn’t that be nice, though? Instead, let’s talk about how CBD can help lay down the foundation you need to make your goals and resolutions attainable.
Ease Anxiety and Decrease Depression
Nothing derails goals and plans quite like anxiety and depression can. CBD has been shown to have anti-depressant and anxiolytic effects, meaning that it may help you with knocking down those demons. Anandamide, an endocannabinoid, is a compound produced naturally by your body and is actually referred to as the “bliss molecule.” CBD helps naturally boost the levels of anandamide in the body leading to a better feeling you.
Fight Inflammation and Combat Pain
You are so excited for your New Year resolutions that you want to jump out of bed and get the day started. But wait… you’re in pain. Not only are you in pain but you realize that your body aching all night meant that you didn’t get adequate rest. So, instead of getting ready to tackle the day you find yourself rolling back over just trying to tackle the pain. Well, it’s no secret that CBD has astounding anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Chronic inflammation can also lead to a multitude of diseases. By helping reduce inflammation, CBD can help combat pain and hopefully prevent any future damage from occurring. After all, that first step to reaching your goals is to get out of bed!
Tie it all Together
You are able to do better when you feel better. CBD is such an easy thing to incorporate into the wellness routine that you promised yourself you’d keep up on for the new year. It’s as simple as taking a vitamin and like a vitamin, is a natural supplement that can aid you in maintaining your health and wellness year-round. In addition to helping with all of the aforementioned roadblocks to our goals, it also helps fight free radicals, is a stronger antioxidant than vitamin C, has neuroprotective properties, AND it won’t get you high. CBD allows you to stay clear headed and focused; sharpening your mind so you can focus on those goals. So, go be that healthier you, that active you, that unbelievably productive you. Remember, you set goals and make resolutions for a reason so let CBD help you get there.
