Small Changes to Relieve Daily Stress

Small Changes to Relieve Daily Stress

Ever have those days that seem like you just can’t catch a break? You wake up feeling rushed and are in a hurry to get to your destination on time. I’m sharing a few tips to help relieve unnecessary stress (let’s face it, we can all shed some stress from our lives).

  1. Pick out your outfit the night before work. This is a big one for me! I feel more put-together when my outfit is picked out and I can get ready in the morning with ease.
  2. Unplug before bed. Give yourself 30 minutes to an hour before bed to stop scrolling through social media and let your mind (and eyes) rest before sleeping.
  3. Spend 5 minutes in the morning to yourself. Set your alarm clock 5 minutes earlier and be still. I like to sit in the dark with my oil diffuser on and enjoy the quietness before starting my day. It’s also a great time to meditate or get in some stretching.
  4. Breathing exercises. Spend time throughout your day taking deep breaths. Set reminders on your phone to take deep breaths (I like to count to 4 on my inhalations & exhalations). Release your tongue from the roof of your mouth. Relax your shoulders away from your ears. Unclench your jaw. Just let go of tension in your body.
  5. Drink water. Staying hydrated can keep your stress levels down. Enough said.
  6. Get your body moving. Get up and stretch, go for a walk or workout. Do something to clear your mind and get any built up tension out.

CBD

CBD

I’m sure you’ve heard about the many benefits of CBD and how it’s being used to treat pain relief and reduce stress/anxiety. I’ve been using CBD products for the past few months and am so excited to share my top picks with you guys! I’m a huge advocate in only sharing my favorite¬†products that have actually worked for me.

So here they are:

Meraki CBD Oil

I’ve been using the Meraki CBD oil before I sleep to help me relax and get a more restful sleep. I place 2-3 drops under my tongue before bed. Another great way to use the oil is to add it into your smoothies or tea. Another win: it has peppermint oil added so it doesn’t leave a weird aftertaste!

Meraki CBD Pain Cream

I use the CBD Pain Cream to help with muscle soreness and inflammation reduction. It’s perfect for those days when you wake up with neck pain or are sore from a good workout (or just slept wrong).

10th Avenue Tea Lemon Matcha + Hemp CBD

A great way to kick start your day? Matcha + CBD! 10th Avenue Tea has a yummy Lemon Matcha Tea Powder with CBD. You can make this either a hot or cold beverage. I love the on-the-go packets because you can travel with them and add them directly to a water bottle. I add ice cubes and a fresh lemon wedge to mine.

The ingredients list is short and simple: Organic lemon juice, organic green tea, organic monk fruit extract and CBD-rich hemp extract
