With less sunlight and colder weather, you probably spend less time outdoors and find it harder to get out of bed in the morning. Your circadian rhythm is adjusting to nature’s cycles. Prioritize your sleep to support optimum wellness.
CBD For Sleep Support
A serving of Strainz CBD before bed can help you rest well and stay asleep through the night. Getting good quality sleep is important for your health, energy levels and strengthens your immune system.
Eat seasonal foods
Some of the best foods to eat during this time of the year are spinach, sweet potatoes, carrots, onions, leeks, garlic, barley, cooked vegetables, baked squash, nuts, and seeds, whole grains, and local winter fruits. This is the time to start making some hearty soups!
Eat more spices and warming foods to help your immune system. More heat will help with chest congestion and clear your airways for better breathing.
Take deep breaths. As simple as it is, you probably catch yourself forgetting to breathe deeply when you are stressed or overwhelmed. Mindful breathing will help with focus and reduce stress.
Take advantage of your time indoors and organize a closet in your house or rearrange a room. Small shifts and upgrades can give you a sense of accomplishment.
Learn Something New
Pick up that book you have been meaning to read or pick out a new audiobook to listen to. Staying active and engaged in good quality content boosts mood and brainpower.
CBD For Pain & Stress Relief
Feel irritable, in pain, or anxious? A daily serving of CBD is great for stress relief, helps manage discomfort, supports your mood, your sleep cycle, and overall wellbeing.
Drink more water. Water helps your general health, flushes out toxins, boosts oxygen flow to your brain, and helps you stay focused. Try to drink 6-8 glasses of water a day.
Use aromatherapy to relax, enhance your focus, calm anxiety, lift your mood, balance emotions, and inspire joy. Add to your bath water, diffuse in your house or use topically with a carrier oil or lotion.
Make a gratitude journal and write down what makes you happy every day. This mindfulness practice will train your mind to focus more on positivity and lift your spirit.
Listening to nature sounds like a babbling brook can help you reduce stress and reset so you can approach your day feeling calm and clear.
Work up a Sweat
Get your blood pumping and your anxious energy out. Physical movement lowers cortisol levels (the stress hormone) and floods your brain with endorphins to boost your mood.
Your environment plays a big role in how you feel. Make your surroundings more comforting and calming with some candles and incense.
Bust out of a bad mood with some dancing. Go take a moment alone to unwind and shake off the stress. Some dancing will do the trick.
Visualize calm. Meditation is one of the best things you can do to improve your mental health, release tension, and improve your focus.
Take it easy and spend time giving back to yourself with a warm bath, a massage, a face mask, or whatever makes you feel pampered!
Play your favorite feel-good playlist to inspire and elevate your mood. Sing your favorite songs and bring more joy into a gloomy day.
Kissing your partner releases those feel-good chemicals that reduce cortisol. Connect with your partner and lean into the support you have to reduce stress and increase happiness.
Herbal teas are calming, nurturing and will warm you up from the inside out. Wellness tips: Drink tea with your meal to prevent overeating, to support digestion, and cleanse toxins out of your body.
Physical activity is crucial for your mental and physical health. Make sure you are moving and stretching to keep your energy levels up. Take a quick jog down the street or bust out a short cardio session or some yoga at home.
Enjoy The Season
Appreciate all that the seasons have to offer. Take in the beauty of the changes nature is going through. Breathe in the smells, appreciate the beautiful autumn colors, and indulge in your favorite seasonal foods.
