CBD & Holiday anxiety
From family gatherings, to travel, to stay at home orders due to COVID-19, this time of year can be a major challenge for so many. In fact, December, according to experts, is often considered the most stressful month of the year. That stat alone is no surprise given the pressures that are put upon all of us as we navigate many of the year’s major holidays.
Tackling stress head-on is key when it comes to managing day-to-day tasks. But how can we all reap the positive benefits during the ‘most wonderful time of the year’ without losing it all together? Statistics show that CBD can be your ultimate super power this season and we’ve rounded up five ways its properties can help you tackle this time of year without getting your tinsel in a tangle.
Be Festively Friendly
Let’s face it, holiday parties and family gatherings are anxiety-ridden for everyone. Add a ‘little Christmas’ to the mix and things can get downright crazy. CBD can help you ditch the anxiety and enjoy the friends and family you care about most. According to a 2015 review, CBD can actually regulate fear and anxiety-ridden behaviors in the brain. So if you’re headed to a gathering that makes you anxious, a small drop of tincture can be just what you need. A little goes a long way and can help you navigate even your most uncomfortable holiday hangouts.
Get That Holiday Glow
From the annual holiday party to festive family photos, looking and feeling your best is at the top of anyone’s holiday wish list. Believe it or not, one major beauty trend is the antioxidant powers of CBD. Its properties can not only help reduce inflammation but it also cuts down redness, irritation and is even known to minimize visible signs of aging. A simple dab of a CBD-infused lotion can help you shine bright with clear and glowing skin even during the most stressful season of the year.
A Secret Weapon for Seasonal Travel
Speaking of stress, it wouldn’t be the holidays without some kind of travel. And whether you’re tackling a long car-ride or maybe forced to hop on a flight, strains exist at every turn. Mask mandates, safe social distancing guidelines and the dreaded middle seat (if that’s even a thing anymore) can be a major deterrent when it comes to going anywhere to begin with. CBD can help not only curb your seasonal travel trek nerves but it’s great for stiff muscles, seasonal (or daily mood swings) and holds anti-inflammatory properties that can take on aches, pains and even fatigue. And winding down with some CBD balm for aching joints and muscles may be just what you need when you reach your final destination.
Relax and Recharge
Once you’ve finally arrived, somewhere between the tree trimming and baking, most of us agree that at one point or another we feel a little out of sorts. Whether it’s waking up in your old bed, or maybe making memories with your in-laws, being around for the holidays is key. Being around for yourself, is critical. Take advantage of your own time with a little help from CBD. Wether it’s a long nap, a fun workout or maybe even yoga and meditation, certain CBD products can help you combat your holiday stress and take time for yourself.
Give The Gift of Relief
And when tensions do surface from time to time, helping the people we love most can be the ultimate gift. From CBD bath bombs, to oils and tinctures, there’s a CBD-infused product for everyone.
From unwinding after a long family gathering or just taking time to enjoy you, CBD can guide you through many different challenges during the holiday season and beyond. Don’t let holiday stress get the best of you, let CBD be your secret super power this season. Shop smart, shop responsibly and celebrate the season safely with CBD.
