There’s a certain crispness to the air. Changing colors, shorter days, and cozy nights—fall is most definitely here! It’s one of our favorite times of the year, but for some, it can be a bit of a downer. It’s a time where the shift in weather can lead to a shift in mood that leaves you feeling worn out, groggy, and just overall a little lower than usual. It’s a normal part of the changing seasons but doesn’t have to be so downright awful. Looking for a remedy for feeling a little down as the weather turns? Create a self-care routine that incorporates CBD and stick to it!
We know ‘self-care’ is an overused term thrown around that sometimes makes you feel like you’re not doing enough. It can also feel like a chore, something forever unattainable, and let’s be honest who has the time? Self-care isn’t just about treating yourself every once in a while, but more about coming up with a routine that works seamlessly with your lifestyle. At Stone and Leaf, we have a wide array of CBD products that are perfect for the colder days ahead. Here are some ideas on how to fall in love with CBD this fall and make a habit out of taking care of your mind and body.
Create a new morning ritual
Your morning routine sets the tone for the rest of the day ahead and gets you off on the right foot. Along with the classic advice of drinking a glass of water first thing, starting off your day with a consistent skincare routine can not only help one of the largest organs on your body stay healthy but set off your day to be calming and you focused. Taking a moment for yourself is hard, but even just a few minutes of a skincare routine can make a huge difference. The Canukka calming eye balm is perfect for tired eyes. With vitamin E, Rose Hip Oil, and Grapefruit extract, it’s the perfect remedy for the sometimes puffy delicate skin under your eyes.
Another way to add CBD into your morning? CBD coffee and tea. There are so many ways to use CBD with coffee and tea such as adding CBD oil to your drink or even trying infused beverages. To read more about pairing CBD and coffee click here.
Mindful movement with CBD
Moving your body has such a huge effect on your overall mood and wellness. Even just getting up and stretching can greatly impact your day. One of our favorite CBD pairings is with intentional movement; yoga, walking, running, biking, and whatever else you like to do! Anything that gets you up and moving in a low-stress, low impact way. Pairing Yoga and CBD has been shown to increase and uplift your mood, ease aches and pains, and aid sleep. Our tips for working out with CBD is to try it via oil or capsule 30-90 minutes before your workout session or post-workout to ease sore muscles and reduce inflammation. We have a ton of topical CBD options to choose from including Social CBD’s cooling mint muscle balm and muscle rub for those achy post-practice muscles.
Baking and cooking with CBD oil
Another way to incorporate CBD into your fall self-care routine is by cooking or baking more! Setting intentional time in the kitchen can help center you, drawing your focus away from work or stresses and get you back into a healthier routine. Cooking for yourself and nourishing your body is one of the best ways to practice self-care.
You might be dying to try those mouth-watering recipes every blogger is posting about this time of the year, and we believe that CBD can be an awesome addition to your favorite fall ingredients. Social’s unflavored CBD oil is perfect for adding to your favorite dishes or baked goods like soups, cookies, or even tasty cocktails. It’s the perfect addition to your recipes to experience the benefits of CBD without comprising the taste of your meal or treat.
CBD on the go
You might be trying to get out and about a little more to take advantage of the less frequent sunny days before the weather gets worse. Soaking up the fresh outside air until the rain or cold makes us retreat back into our homes is a great goal to have once a day. Vaping can be a discreet and easy way to keep the benefits of CBD with you throughout your day and on the go. Social CBD has a ton of different vape flavors to choose from.
