7 Self Care CBD Strategies
Keep Calm & CBD On
AUTHOR MARILIA ANGELINE / PUBLISHED: APR-05-2020
Deep breaths. Self-care is more important than ever at this moment. To be honest, self-care is important at any moment. Caring for yourself is what keeps you going through challenging situations and what gives you quality rest. That’s why it’s no surprise that self-care is having a “moment” culturally. CBD is also having a moment as a fun, new, and effective way to up your self-care.
While you can’t control what happens outside of you, like what’s happening in the world or what other people do, you can control what you do for yourself: You can carve out daily pockets of time to prioritize doing healthy self-care activities. You can use organic CBD (cannabidiol) products for their healing properties and clean ingredients. Even better, you can combine doing a self-care activity with enjoying an organic CBD product and get maximum wellness benefits.
When World War II was affecting everyday life, the British government made motivational posters instructing people to, “Keep Calm and Carry On”. This mantra makes sense; if you can’t keep calm, it’s hard to carry on as normal. Thankfully in today’s world, you can order calming OrganiCBD products made from USA-grown organic hemp delivered straight to your door, so it’s easy to Keep Calm and CBD On.
Read on for self-care strategies you can combine with CBD and keep calm while you get your organic CBD on.
7 Self-Care CBD Strategies:
Strategy 1: Get Outside to Go Inside
Go for a long walk or hike to clear your head. Think of it as a “Gratitude Walk”. Focus your energy on identifying what you are grateful for in your environment, your life, and in the world. Mentally give thanks for all you’re grateful for or share it aloud with anyone walking with you and ask them to also share their grateful thoughts. You can also express gratitude for future things you are working toward and manifesting, such as a future partner/friend/child, career opportunity, and/or home. Bring CBD Honey Sticks along with you and enjoy them while you expand your gratitude list.
Strategy 2: Try This Simple Mindfulness Exercise
Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Open your eyes and connect with your five senses. In your head or aloud, say one thing you can see, one thing you hear, one thing you can touch or feel physically, one thing you can smell, and one thing you can taste. Then grab a bottle of CBD Oil (Lavender, Lemon, or Peppermint essential oil flavors) and drop some CBD oil under your tongue. Hold the oil in your mouth for at least 30 seconds before swallowing, challenging yourself to focus on experiencing it fully with all your senses--especially smell, taste, and touch. Then close your eyes and open them to repeat the exercise, this time identifying a new sight, sound, touch, smell, and taste.
Strategy 3: Get Your Bath and Honey Mask On
Bath time relaxed you as a child and prepared you for bed, so why not indulge in a restorative bath now? First, cleanse your face and apply a teaspoon of CBD Honey as a face mask, which has organic locally sourced honey and organic CBD oil. (Here’s more on honey face masking.) Then draw a healing detox bath for yourself.
Start with Epsom salts, which are high in magnesium, and will help relax your muscles and improve sleep. Drop in some essential oils for spa feel, or use OrganiCBD’s Lavender, Lemon or Peppermint CBD Oil to give your whole body an organic CBD boost. Finally, add any of these detox ingredients: a cup of baking soda and/or raw apple cider vinegar, ground ginger, sea or Himalayan salt, healing clay, even herbal tea bags. Soak in the bath while wearing your honey face mask and enjoy reading or listening to something relaxing. After your bath, rinse your face mask off and feel the soothed, baby smoothness of your skin.
Strategy 4: Meditating and Vaping
When you feel anxious, meditation can be the quickest fix to get you out of a negative state and ready to restart your day. In fact, meditation is a great way to start the day, as it can center your thoughts in the morning. Find a place to sit/lay and meditate for at least 5 minutes, challenging yourself to meditate longer when you’re at your most stressed. Discover free guided meditations on YouTube and in podcast apps or invest in an app like Calm for a customizable experience. Simply Being is a refreshingly minimal $1.99 app and its creators, Meditation Oasis, offer more mindfulness apps, resources, and a podcast.
To enhance your feeling of calm, try vaping organic CBD before you meditate—you’ll get the fastest hitting effects of CBD coupled with the feeling of meditation zen. OrganiCBD Vape Pens are unique because they’re full-spectrum organic CBD oil plus terpenes with nothing else added, all in a glass cartridge with a ceramic mouth piece. The vapes use an AVD Vape Pen Battery, the most advanced CBD vape pen battery in the game. Consult your doctor first to be safe, and don’t share vape pens.
Strategy 5: Make a Stop Doing List
Listing things to stop doing can be just as crucial to list as making your daily to do list. Make a Stop Doing List and include things you want to stop or reduce doing because they aren’t healthy for you or the planet. Make sure to think of and list the why for each thing to reinforce your commitment to not doing it.
For example, it could be to stop drinking alcohol so you can lose weight and have a healthier liver, or to limit drinking to only one drink at a time/occasion. It can be to stop watching the news on TV if it is too much for you and switching to reading the news for a reduced amount of time, or even taking a news source hiatus to protect your energy.
To help the environment, you can reduce buying synthetic material clothing like polyester and nylon and instead aim to buy only natural fibers, like organic cotton. This is why OrganiCBD offers a clothing line of certified organic cotton pre-shrunk tees, long sleeve tees, and t-shirt dresses. It’s another way for you to live organically. The clothing ranges from XS-2XL, will breathe much better than the synthetic fibers in a lot of today’s clothing, and unlike synthetics, the organic cotton won’t shed micro-plastics when it gets washed.
Strategy 6: Give Back
When you’re feeling anxious, it can be all too easy to get wrapped up in yourself and your problems. This is a great time to challenge yourself to do something kind for someone else, whether it’s just checking in with a call, video chat, or text, doing an act of service, or volunteering (try volunteermatch.org).
Set a goal of doing something positive for others every week or daily. Even if you can only do something small or give a donation behind the scenes, everything you do to help makes a difference. If you want to boost someone’s spirits with a present, show your love, or give back to someone who helped you, CBD products are always a thoughtful gift idea. OrganiCBD has you covered when it comes to gifting, with organic options like CBD Honey, CBD Oils, CBD Vape Pens, and Organic Cotton Clothing.
Strategy 7: Exercise and Recover (or Create Something, Yoga Poses)
Daily exercise is recommended all the time, but it’s crucial when you need extra self-care. This is the time to do a little more exercising, add in extra stretching or foam rolling, and/or change up how you exercise. Take your workout outside for some Vitamin D from the sun or do it at home without any weather limitations.
If you only have small pockets of workout time or stopped exercising, start with a shorter routine to make sure you move daily. Download a free app like 7 Minute Workout or use YouTube to try a different kind of exercise, like Yoga or Pilates. To fuel your workout organically, have a pre-workout teaspoon of CBD Honey. It’ll quickly boost your energy and immunity while giving you some CBD calmness. Or enjoy a CBD Honey Stick as a pick me up right after your workout.
So, Don’t Despair, Self-Care!
No matter what life throws at you, you can still find small ways to take care of yourself and have some self-care and organic CBD time. And you’ll be all the better for it. The best way to start is to just take one step, so choose one self-care strategy to try today. See if you can make it a daily habit by working it into your routine. Build more of this self-care list in to your life from there. If you are more of a free spirit, go ahead and try as many self-care strategies and organic CBD products as are calling out to you now.
