Three weeks into 2021 and it’s already been a mad one. Like every year, we’re assuming most of you have made your new year resolutions, set goals, and made plans of how you want the next few months to look. Or perhaps this year you’ve just decided to let go of the planning and rigidity of resolutions in favour of simply flowing through the seasons instead. What will be will be. Whatever the case, we at Hail Mary are down for holding a positive mindset and starting the year feeling good. God knows we need it.
However, we also know that January and a national lockdown in the UK makes a positive mindset hard to come by, but try and use this time of reduced activity and new year feelings to set off down the best path for you, even if it’s with the smallest and slowest steps.
Get out into nature
Ok hear us out…This might be the last thing you want to do right now when you look outside. The days still aren’t much brighter or longer and it is COLD. But time spent outdoors can really heal you inside and out, in many similar ways to CBD. A walk, a run, a picnic, fishing or reading on a bench are all ways to help you reduce stress, boost your immune system and balance your body and mind.
We can also use nature internally to heal us by eating more veg, or using more fresh herbs, teas and CBD as part of our daily routine. You can even put a few drops of our Hail Mary 500mg CBD Oil into your herbal tea each morning for a soothing dose of nature.
Our above suggestion will do a great deal in nourishing your body and mind but there are so many little extra things we can do to make ourselves feel good, like eating well, spending time away from screens, picking up new hobbies or skills etc. However, one of the easiest things you could do to kickstart your self-nourishment is to establish a post-shower routine. Use Hail Mary’s CBD Infused Cream to nourish your skin with all the natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits of chamomile, lavender and peppermint oils. You can even add a few drops of Hail Mary 1000mg CBD Oil into your moisturiser or body lotion as a DIY solution. CBD is pretty versatile, which means you don’t have to use it as just another part of your daily supplement intake. Moisturise, get your robe on, get into bed and sip on that CBD infused herbal tea. You’ll feel like the most wholesome person of 2021.
It’s time to get moving after a few weeks of lazing around, especially as back-to-work STILL means working-from-home for many of us. If you’re someone who sits at a desk (or bed) for the majority of the day, make it a goal to just move a little. Even if it’s just a five-minute stretch in the morning and evening or a walk around the house. You gotta move so the body recognises that it still is, infact, alive. And if it needs some extra reminding, remember that CBD isn’t just known for its relaxing benefits. Pair your energy-boosting superfoods with your Hail Mary CBD Oil and you’ll be in fighting shape for when we’re finally out of this mess!
