How CBD Can Help You Achieve Your Goals For The New Year!
Read Time: 7 minutes
While 2021 was a challenging year for many of us, it's never too early to start thinking about how you want the new year to look and feel. Making small adjustments each day can help us overcome challenges that may have surfaced since the pandemic. While most typically make resolutions to self-improve to help ring in the new year, it's easy to fall lax and let things slip through the cracks-even with the best intentions at heart.
The idea of living a healthy lifestyle is one thing. But, turning your mental, physical, and overall health goals into real results is another. Many wanting to learn how to live a more natural life or how to keep up with their health goals in the new year may fall short due to self-doubt, lack of motivation, and a busy schedule that can make it difficult to stick to resolutions. Luckily, CBD plays a role in practically every aspect of personal wellness-and may help your goals become more attainable. Here's what you need to know about CBD and how it can help you keep your motivation and wellness goals in check, so you're living your best life through 2022.
What is CBD?
CBD is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in hemp that plays a role within the body to help create balance. It can help encourage the body to produce its own endocannabinoids, which are responsible for keeping our bodies functioning at their best. The endocannabinoid system regulates things like appetite, sleep, mood and stress levels, pain responses, immune system efficiency, and more. Adding CBD to the mix can help keep your body performing at its best by promoting your physical health, as well as mental health.
On the other hand, CBD offers a handful of benefits on its own. Taken as a daily supplement, this all-natural, hemp-derived compound may help reduce pain and inflammation, support muscle recovery and metabolic function. Though CBD is not considered a cure, it can be used as a healthy alternative to medicines that may have negative or harsh side effects.
Because CBD works in harmony with the body and offers its own benefits, it's a great addition to your wellness routine in 2022. CBD can help you stick to your New Year's resolutions; especially if you're pushing for a year of wellness and vitality.
The Top 5 New Year’s Resolutions (And How CBD Fits In)
Since CBD assists in so many different aspects of health and wellness, it makes a great sidekick to your daily health routines and can even help make those resolutions feel more attainable. Here are some of the most common New Year's resolutions and how CBD can help you achieve them.
I want to eat better in 2022.
Improving overall health is one of the most common New Year's resolutions. For many people, that comes down to establishing a healthy workout routine, eating better foods, and letting go of those few extra pounds they acquired over the end of the year festivities. Luckily, there's a lot of evidence to suggest that CBD boosts our metabolism and may aid in weight loss when taken daily. But even if weight loss isn't a resolution for you, you can still use CBD to take charge of your health in the new year! When taken daily, CBD may improve your mood and may help you feel your best throughout the day—allowing you to keep that motivation intact and achieve your goals without any intoxicating effects.
I want to get my sleep schedule under control in 2022.
If you're a night owl or find yourself struggling to sleep well or even to sleep consistently, there are still plenty of healthy habits you can pick up and do without using prescription sleep aids. Unplugging from technology a few hours before bed is a great first step in establishing a nightly routine that will improve your rest (so you feel your best). However, incorporating CBD can lead to even better results. CBD may help regulate the sleep cycle-encouraging improved sleep at the end of the day. If you struggle to fall asleep, you can also try CBD products with natural sleep aid melatonin-which may help get to sleep easier and promote deeper, more fulfilling rest. Lazarus Naturals offers a specially formulated product line for healthy sleep (with a potent blend of CBD, CBG, and CBN) available in gummies, capsules, and an oil tincture.
I want to lead a more active lifestyle in 2022.
Getting outside and getting a workout here and there is excellent for physical and mental health. Even though it helps with confidence and makes you feel more relaxed overall, it can be one of the most challenging resolutions to follow through with since it can be a struggle to incorporate regularly. Exercise makes us feel fatigued, and muscle recovery can be a lengthy process that prevents us from being consistent. Luckily, CBD may help soothe your aching muscles and sore joints-ultimately leading to less time in recovery mode, and more time doing things you love. Put our fast-acting Relief + Recovery CBD Muscle Gel to the test, and enjoy lasting relief. With the help of CBD for muscle recovery, you’ll be one step closer to setting and achieving your physical activity goals in the new year.
I want to quiet my anxiety and find more time to relax in 2022.
Anxiety and depression have been on the rise since the pandemic. If you find yourself overworked during the week. or tending to dozens of responsibilities, it helps to make time to relax and keep anxiety at bay. Adding CBD into your routines may help level out your moods and quell symptoms of stress and anxiety-making daunting tasks much more manageable. Paired with the daily decision to surrender control over certain things, CBD may help you feel less anxious and more at ease. Our Classic CBD Tincture is full spectrum, has high potency, and is the perfect foundation for any CBD routine. (It's our best-seller for good reason!)
I want to practice more self-care in 2022.
Self-care is often looked at like a "special treat" instead of a vital part of living a good life. You can't expect to help others (in addition to the things on your plate) with an empty tank. Setting aside time to practice self-care is essential for overall wellness. This can even be as simple as healthy eating, exercising more often, taking a day off for yourself, or just taking small steps to create healthy habits, such as incorporating CBD into your daily wellness regimen. CBD can easily be integrated into your self-care routines, whatever they may be. Maybe you're looking to manage your stress with yoga-or enjoy a hot bath at the end of a long day. No matter what you choose, CBD can help maximize your goals, improve your state of mind, and nourish your mind and body. We recommend the soothing notes of lavender and chamomile from our Relax + Unwind CBD Balm for help taming tension and turning distress into de-stress.
