5 Tips to Use CBD For Holiday Stress
I just had this conversation with someone close to me the other night and they mentioned how the holidays bring them a lot of anxiety, so let’s talk about 5 Tips to Use CBD For Holiday Stress.
I’ve learned that I am definitely a Christmas person. By that I mean; I love the holiday’s and everything about the festive season.
What I also didn’t realize is that there are so many people out there who don’t like the holidays, and get absolutely stressed out.
It’s OK to not love Christmas!
But, if you have a family gathering to go to, or a few last minute presents to purchase before the big stressful day, I’m going to suggest some great ways to use CBD as a stress busting superhero.
#1. Use CBD Oil On Your Stomach
I suffer from IBS. It’s never fun!
Plus, there have been studies proving that our digestive tract has CBD receptors which support healthy digestion and may decrease symptoms of IBS.
If you get nervous, have anxiety, have IBS or other stomach-related gastrointestinal problems, I would strongly urge you to use CBD.
Here’s what I do:
- I take my CBD oil and drop a few drops in my hands.
- I emulsify it by rubbing my hands together.
- I gently rub it on my stomach in circles, gently until it’s all absorbed.
- Then, I place a heated bag or hot water bottle on my stomach and lay down while I watch TV, or scroll through my favorite Tik Tok’ers.
Within 30-60 minutes, generally, I feel better and more relaxed!
#2. CBD – Straight Up.
When I first started, I noticed my body being very receptive to the oil. I felt what I can only explain as a slight tingle and warm, happy feeling.
Since having taken it, my anxiety and depression has significantly decreased and I am able to handle and manage little or big challenges in life – especially COVID.
So try it straight up, under the tongue – and if you must, grab some honey as a chaser if you don’t like the taste.
#3. Have a CBD Bath
Especially where I live, we get some frosty-cold days in the Winter time.
I’ve started to collect fun bath-accessories like a bath caddy tray where I can safely stand my tablet, phone, and a book – plus other fun bath time stuff, including a wine glass holder!
And, there is nothing more fun in the bath than a bath bomb!
So sink into the bath, breathe in and out, know that Christmas will soon be over and try to let that stress melt away.
#4. Bake or Cook CBD Edibles
I love cooking and baking. Do you?
I find it relieves so much stress and when I have a good, solid plan, I can get lost in my kitchen for hours.
Consider this: chopping, measuring, scooping, mixing and baking or cooking takes your mind off of stress!
You’re busy engaging in an activity that requires your full attention, and you want great results, right?!
Why not throw on an apron, and check out these yummy weed edible recipes and just start experimenting.
Didn’t turn out? That’s what the garbage is for! Just start over, or try another fun cannabis edible recipe.
#5. Create a CBD Spa Day at Home!
I love having what I call “spa days” at home! I pour myself a nice glass of whatever I’m in the mood for, and spend hours just pampering myself.
Have you ever tried it?
I like to turn on some relaxing music, or catch up with a show or two, scroll on social, or sometimes I just need some silence to soak in, while I pamper my body and soul.
Check out the DIY CBD scrub here:
While the oils temperature are back at room temperature, add in the sugar, coloring, chopped orange peel and essential oils.
Use a hand mixer to mix well and seal in mason jar.
Apply to the skin and scrub very gently. Wash off snd follow with a facial moisturizer.
