5 ways CBD can help with your 2022 new year resolutions

January 5, 2022

It’s that time of year where we’re all thinking about the changes we can make, how we can stick to them, and how we can kick things off. Sound familiar? The good news is that if you don’t quite know how to get started in 2022, you’ve certainly come to the right place.

As wellness advocates who believe that simple, healthy and most importantly of all natural choices can fit seamlessly into everyday life, who better to turn to for some pointers? To help you on your way, we’ve put together a list of the top five ways that naturally sourced and produced CBD products can help you achieve anything and everything that’s on your goals list this year. All you have to do is keep reading and then take your pick…

CBD can help improve your sleep health

If you want to be able to achieve your goals, you really don’t want to have to be battling through each and every day as a result of bad sleep the night before. Sleep is when your body repairs, your energy levels recover, and also when your mind processes the events of the day. Memories are cemented, emotions are analysed and a whole host of other complex processes which feed into your overall sense of wellbeing need to be taken care of. The problem is that too many of us treat sleep as an inconvenience that we can throttle back on when other things in life come up. While you may feel like you’re getting away with it in the short term, before long issues will start to arise.

The way in which we use CBD — daily and in a personal quantity that’s right for you — is geared around promoting sleep health the natural way. By having the right sleep behind you from the night before, you can function at your optimum on any given day. While this in itself may not be one of your resolutions, it will be the foundation for achieving anything you want. Get your sleep right and you’ll find your decision making, emotional wellbeing and willpower are all where they need to be. From there, everything else follows…

CBD can also be used to manage your stress

One of your resolutions is to give up a bad habit: junk food, missing breakfast, or perhaps even smoking. While you don’t want to replace one bad habit with another, that doesn’t mean you can’t find a good habit that fills the void.

The key thing to understand here is that while binging in a way that you’ve now come to dislike is bad for you, on some level you’ve also used it as a form of security. There’s nothing to be ashamed of here, and we certainly don’t want to put you off by diving too deep into the psychology.

All we want to get across is the fact that when you suddenly stop doing something you’ve become accustomed to, even if you know it’s ultimately doing you harm, you’ll always find that your stress levels spike. CBD is a natural way to bring them back down in a gradual, controlled way that won’t have you swapping one bad habit for a complex cocktail of pharmaceuticals just to get through the day. Take a holistic approach and you’ll find you always have that little extra in reserve when you feel like breaking your resolutions.

CBD is the perfect natural recovery supplement

For many of us 2022 will be the year we aim to get fit, healthy and drop some weight. These are great goals to have on your list, but why is sticking to them so often easier said than done?

One of the main reasons is that you start off with great energy and vitality, only to find that you’re running low after a couple of weeks. It’s all too tempting to overdo things and train too much, which then gets you into a vicious cycle of stopping your exercise dead for months on end, before sporadically taking it up and overdoing things again. Do that a couple of times and 2022 will have come and gone with little or no improvement in your physical health.

By using CBD to manage your recovery, you can help naturally reduce things like joint pain and muscle soreness. The idea here is not to then continue to push on at an unrealistic pace only an Olympian could sustain, but instead to start listening to your body day in, day out. If you use CBD as part of this process, you’ll find that you quickly align your training routine with your capabilities and see the gradual, incremental progress that will make all the difference.

CBD can be used to manage your social anxiety 

Things like peer pressure or feeling like you don’t fit in can quickly knock you out of your rhythm. If you want to go alcohol free, you need to have the confidence that you can enjoy meeting new people without a drink in your hand. And if you want to be able to stick to your early morning exercise routine you need to be able to turn down certain invitations without feeling like you have to be a people pleaser.

The key thing to remember here is that there’s no shame in suffering from social anxiety — we all go through it at one time or another. What matters is finding a healthy, natural way to manage it that allows you to still do what matters most to you in life. With regular CBD use you can reduce stress and anxiety the natural way, all while giving yourself that extra bit of mental energy to make the decisions that really matter.

CBD opens up new opportunities by managing chronic discomfort 

One of the most hyped properties of CBD is its ability to manage chronic pain and inflammation. This is something that many people turn to us for so they can learn a little more about it, but that’s not what we want to talk through in this article.

Instead, we want to convince you that when you can give yourself the soothing touch and extra bit of relaxation you thought you’d never get, you can do more than you ever imagined. By using CBD on a daily basis as part of a wider approach to holistic health and wellness, you can find new ways to go out there into the world and make things happen. Ideal if you want to be someone who pushes on in a way you never thought possible, simply by reconnecting your mind and body with the natural world again.

Anything else you need to know?

CBD use is growing in popularity because it introduces every aspect of your life to positive outcomes. How you choose to take advantage of them and make the most of them is very much up to you, which makes CBD the ideal supplement to introduce into your daily routine for 2022. It will also allow you to have the solid, firm foundation for your mental health that will enable you to make smart decisions on a consistent basis.

Good luck in 2022!
