With all the challenges we’ve faced over the last year between a global pandemic, an economic recession and civil unrest, many of us have been examining our daily routines in the quest to create better, less stressful lives. We’re also learning that traditional goals and resolutions rarely work. In fact, according to a survey by Our Community Now, 66% of Americans have opted out of the traditional resolutions that result in deadlines and instead focus on setting “intentions” to create change more organically. One such intention is to seek a life with less anxiety and more focus. Some have even started incorporating CBD products into their daily routines to manage anxiety and improve focus.
Intentions vs. Goals
Goals are things you want to accomplish by a specific due date and sometimes come with anxiety or fear. Intentions, on the other hand, are more immediate. Daily intentions are set to start the day on the right foot and focus on productivity, positivity, and success. While mental health concerns skyrocketed last year as people struggled to manage stress and anxiety in the wake of the pandemic, many Americans were forced to create new routines to prioritize their health and fitness. Very similar to setting intentions, creating a routine has proven to help feel more organized, in control, and ready to take on the day.
No more waking up on the wrong side of the bed and running on fumes throughout the day. Be intentional by creating a routine that supports your body during the day and throughout the night. How you start your day is how you love your life, and let’s face it, as we continue to get older, our bodies can use an extra boost to help us stay energized and productive.
Here are a few easy personal intentions to create:
- Workout more often
- Dedicate time to meditate
- Be more productive
Could CBD Be the Key to Keeping Those New Intentions?
As you embark on this new wellness journey, consider incorporating CBD into your regime to improve your mind and body holistically. CBD or cannabidiol is a naturally occurring substance derived from the hemp plant and, when used frequently, can help your body restore naturally by decreasing stress, anxiety, and pain caused by inflammation. At Sacred CBD, we recently surveyed our customers to learn about their experience using Sacred products. We found that people who use multiple CBD products as a routine are 18% more satisfied than those who only use one product.
Let’s refer to those intentions and turn them into a routine incorporating CBD.
- Set an goal to begin waking up at 6:30 am and dedicate 10 minutes to gratitude. After a 10-minute gratitude meditation, you could take a dose of a wellness tincture (such as our own Sacred CBD Wellness Tincture) to help you stay focused and gain clarity for the day.
- Instead of making a goal to lose 10 pounds by the Spring, set an intention to work out more often by implementing a workout that gets your body moving. Whether that be an intense gym workout with weights, yoga, or Zumba, the goal is to move your body and break a sweat. As you stretch out before your workout routine, try using a CBD lotion (such as our Sacred CBD Pain Lotion) to help you hop into fitness positions with ease.
- After your workout, rub down with a CBD balm (like our Sacred CBD Pain Balm) to help minimize inflammation and muscle soreness. End your night with another drop of wellness tincture to help you get a restful night’s sleep. By incorporating CBD products into your routine daily, you’re restoring your body naturally. In fact, many companies like Sacred offer product bundles that make it easy to incorporate CBD into your routine.
- Realistically the key to creating a healthier lifestyle is consistency. Actual changes won’t happen overnight. However, the beauty in setting intentions instead of goals is that you can work on creating the difference at your own pace. If you stick to the right regime, you’ll see the results you hope to achieve over time.
