Use CBD to help fulfill your New Year’s resolutions
January is the opportune month for reflection, and for setting goals and intentions for the rest of the year ahead. The possibility of a fresh start often fills us with inspiration and motivation. And this year holds the added weight of being the start of a new decade (or the end of an old one depending on your perspective). Seriously though, keeping New Year’s resolutions – or Intentions as we prefer to say – is easier said than done. Here are 4 Simple Tips to increase your probability of following through on your goals.
Start a gratitude journal
Research shows that gratitude is linked to greater joy and physical health. Biologically, our brains are wired to detect potential threats as a survival instinct, creating a natural bias toward negativity. Adding some CBD, while shifting our awareness to what we are grateful for, can help balance this negative perception and ease daily tension. One of the best ways to practice a grateful mindset is to start a gratitude journal and write down at least three things you’re grateful for every day. Reflect on the last decade and write down the people, places, things, and happenings that had a positive impact on your life. As a bonus challenge, try to find things to be grateful for in retrospect that you once viewed as negative.
This is the most powerful time of year to set intentions for yourself. Make a list of reasonable goals for the year ahead. Break each one down into practicable steps and write them down. Visualize yourself fulfilling these aims and imagine how you will feel when your desires become reality. Demonstrate your commitment to your intention by creating a vision board or sign and placing it somewhere where you’ll see it every day. In addition, take one small step toward your goal such as purchasing supplies for the coming weeks and months or creating the necessary space in your life.
Let go of anything that doesn’t serve your best interest
To make room for new things to enter your life, it’s necessary to release the things that are taking up too much space, literally and figuratively. Take inventory of thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that are no longer serving you. Assess your relationships and decide where you need to set boundaries. Clean your physical living space and donate any items that are creating clutter and not bringing you joy. All of these actions are making a fresh start for new and better things to come into your life.
Commit to a CBD self-care practice
Now is a good time to recommit to practicing self-care so you can start the year feeling your best and show up as your best self all year round. A healthy diet, exercise and sleep habits are the essential pillars of self-care. Supplementing with CBD is one of the best ways you can take care of yourself. CBD activates your endocannabinoid system, which keeps your body in an optimal state of homeostasis or balance, so you’re better equipped to handle whatever life throws at you. Freshlife offers CBD products in a variety of different formulas such as oils, gummies, and topicals so you can find the perfect CBD product for your needs. Give yourself that extra edge to make this year your best year yet!
