You’ve probably been there: preparing for a work meeting with what feels like a dull band of discomfort wrapped around your head, shoulders, or neck. It’s not so bad that you have to go home, but distracting and uncomfortable enough to cloud your focus and steal your attention.
If you’re anything like most people, traditional products would be the first thing you reach for. But while you know it provides enough of a release to get on with your day, you might be looking for some plant-based alternatives that will provide you with a fresher approach for your long-term wellness. Here are three steps to releasing tension naturally and rejuvenating your body along the way:
Step 1: Releasing Tension
Maintaining balance in your mind and body is no easy thing when you’re trying to juggle work, family, exercise, eating well, and (hopefully!) squeeze in some self-care. There are countless opportunities to feel weighed down by all the demands and let your wellbeing get pushed down the priority list. This is why CBD is a must-have wellness ally. It partners with the human body’s endocannabinoid system (a system of receptors found in the vast network of nerves, muscles, and soft tissues in the cranial region) and gets involved in establishing and maintaining balance in the body.
Step 2: Rejuvenating & Reviving Your Body
Taking CBD is the equivalent of allowing your body to take a long, slow deep breath. And when partnered with powerful botanicals like essential oils it not only calms but revives and stimulates your body—consider it an essential wakeup call for your body. Feel refreshed instead of worn out, nourished instead of depleted.
Step 3: Repeat!
As with so many other aspects of wellness, prevention is key. Because quality CBD products can be used regularly, it’s easy to incorporate it into your routine. Daily maintenance will help build a baseline concentration of CBD in your body, making tension flare-ups more manageable when they do strike.
Since cannabinoid receptors exist in virtually every cell and tissue type in the human body, CBD plays a crucial role in returning an out-of-balance body back to homeostasis. So it’s easy to see why CBD is a natural alternative to over-the-counter products—it can be used on a daily basis and will seamlessly transition into your daily routine as a wiser pathway to your optimum version of wellness.
