CBD Products to Achieve Your New Year’s Resolutions
Most New Year’s Resolutions are all about self-improvement and self-care. At Root Wellness, we are all about helping our customers meet their self-care goals. You want to make your New Year’s Resolutions and stick to them, but maybe it’s not always that simple. No matter what you’re aiming to resolve this year, we have just the right natural, honest CBD products to help you meet your goals. But, we decided to see how our products could help with some common resolutions that seem to keep coming up year after year.
Resolution 1: Exercise more
It can be exhausting to master a new habit and learn several new workout routines. When you’re not feeling up to your workout, try CBD for an energizing effect. Studies have shown that CBD is a vasorelaxant, which means that it helps in allowing the free flow of blood. Exercise demands plenty of oxygenated blood, so vasorelaxants are a great way to support your body when working out. CBD tinctures are perfect for a pre-workout supplement because they are fast-acting and easy to carry with you. You can also start your day with CBD coffee (pre-made, or make your own) for day-long determination, without the jitters. You can also add CBD capsules to your wake-up routine for an easy way to get your daily dose before you’re on the go.
CBD is also an anti-inflammatory, so it can help you recover faster after a strenuous workout. If you do happen to pull a muscle, CBD topical lotions, salves, and balms are a great way to support the healing process. Growing numbers of professional athletes are adding CBD to their pre and post-exercise toolbag. So, if it’s good enough for the pros, it can definitely help you to stay committed to that New Year’s resolution and exercise more!
Resolution 2: Get a better night’s sleep
Getting enough sleep gives your body time to repair itself and even burn calories! According to the National Sleep Foundation, the average adult needs 7-9 hours per night of good sleep to function at their best. If you are only getting 4-6 hours per night of restless sleep, it can have a wide range of negative impacts on your health, mood, and job performance. If you’re often restless or suffer from insomnia, a daily dose of CBD before bed can be an excellent way to promote more restful sleep.
When it comes to a sleeping aid, there are plenty of CBD products to help you get a good night’s rest. For daily doses, you can use CBD tinctures in your bedtime tea, gel capsules, CBD gummies, or CBD sleep syrup. Whatever way you prefer to take your CBD, it is a great way to unwind at the end of a stressful day and drift off to a night of deep, restorative sleep.
Resolution 3: Eat healthier
Because all of our products are Broad Spectrum and do not contain psychoactive levels of THC, you can breathe a sigh of relief that your CBD intake won’t be accompanied by a case of the munchies. To stick to your diet goals, it is important to find the reason why you want to change your diet to begin with. Do you need more energy? Weight loss? You can reap the energizing benefits of CBD in your healthy meals each day, and overeating is often associated with depression or anxiety. CBD is a great way to stay relaxed and motivated as you focus on eating better.
One of our favorite ways to incorporate CBD into a healthy lifestyle starts with a morning of CBD coffee and avocado toast. Best of all, our CBD flavors are all-natural, so you can add a touch of healthy flavor to your coffee too! Simply add some CBD oil from a tincture dropper into your coffee, along with some milk or an alternative to prevent separation. Or, when mashing up avocados for your spread, add some flavorless CBD oil to it.
Resolution 4: Stress less
CBD is a great way to relieve stress and put yourself at ease. CBD activates serotonin receptors in the brain, which are responsible for promoting and supporting mental well-being and happiness. Increased levels of serotonin in the brain have been consistently linked to lower levels of stress and anxiety, which is always a good thing!
When it comes to minimizing anxiety, CBD gummies and capsules are popular as on-the-go solutions. They offer a slower release of CBD throughout the day, which means that you don’t have to worry about stress building up before you have a chance to take another dose. Our CBD capsules are flavorless and offer a natural broad-spectrum CBD experience.
Resolution 5: Smoke less
If you’re trying to quit smoking, there are plenty of healthy, stress-relieving habits to pick up instead. When you’re trying to quit your smoking addiction, vaping CBD can make the process easier—and more bearable. You still get the motion and feeling of smoking, but instead, you’ll reap the benefits of natural CBD with each puff. It’s the perfect combination, as it can replace the physical habit while taking the edge off the stress and tension that comes with quitting nicotine.
Whether your New Year’s Resolution is all about exercising more, sleeping better, eating healthier, or smoking less, there are plenty of little ways that CBD can make a big difference in your routines and habits. When choosing a new CBD product, it’s important to find the dosage that works best for you and your unique endocannabinoid system before ruling out a certain type or brand of CBD.
Fatigue, chronic pain, anxiety, and overworked muscles can easily discourage even the most determined people trying to reach their goals. But with CBD products available in the form of lotion, capsules, gummies, balms, vapes, and more, there are many ways to speed up your recovery and get you focused on your goals again. When you are able to properly relax after your hard work, you’re going to feel more energized for the next day.
