2020 has been a stressful year, to say the least. With the unpredictability of the world around us, it can be challenging to find moments of peace and serenity. While it is important to move forward carrying the wisdom from the past year, 2021 should be a year of resetting and moving with intention and positivity.
The easiest way to take care of yourself during these trying times is to prioritize your health and wellness routine. With the global pandemic forcing us into the habit of blending our home and workspaces, it can become difficult to find balance and establish separation from day-to-day stressors -- and the spaces where we should be able to escape them. It has become increasingly important for us to compartmentalize all of the dynamic facets of our lives to maintain a sense of relaxation.
Start the new year off with a strategy to prioritize your mental and physical wellbeing. Here are a few self-care activities to make 2021 your best year yet!
Keep Calm with CBD
Research has shown that there are many benefits of including CBD into your daily wellness regimen. Incorporating CBD into your self-care routine can improve sleep, and take the edge off of your stressful lifestyle. Another bonus? Martha Stewart CBD products are as delicious as they are effective! Martha Stewart CBD gummies are featured in a variety of decadent fruit flavors that can help you Find Your Inner Martha. Enjoy tart Citrus Medley or classic Berry Medley flavors for a sweet treat with a soothing after-effect.
A Body In Motion
This year, set aside some time to move your body. With a notable amount of the year 2020 being spent inside, it was easier than ever to neglect physical activity. Many of us might still be finding ourselves sunken into our couch cushions binging a feel-good Netflix series. In 2021, find a form of movement that suits your lifestyle, whether it be hiking, yoga, cycling, or a lively at-home kick-boxing class, and do it for YOU. Your body, mind, and spirit will thank you for it!
Make post-workout CBD part of your total wellness routine, and have that extra something to work toward at the end of your workout.
Meditation is a great way to begin or end your day in a peaceful headspace. In the morning, begin your day with a light stretch and find a comfortable space to visualize your day ahead. Meditating before you dive into your workload or to-do list can help you find your inner calm to take on your day with confidence and ease.
CBD can be a great pairing for your meditation routine to help ease racing, anxious thoughts. For instance, if you prefer evening meditation but find yourself wound tightly from your stressful day, try lighting a candle, brewing some soothing herbal tea, and infusing your tea with a dropper of Martha Stewart CBD oil in Meyer Lemon or Blood Orange for a refreshing citrus taste. Ending your evening with relaxing meditation is a great way to reflect on your day, unwind, and release any of the day’s stresses and tension to improve your sleep.
Keep a Journal
Keeping a journal can be an effective, therapeutic tool for processing complex feelings and tracking your mental and emotional cycles. Try setting aside 10-15 minutes at the beginning or end of each day to log the ins and outs of your day, or try listing out things that you are thankful for. While journaling is a simple task to implement into your daily routine, it can be difficult to establish a habit early on. To make it easier, keep your journal and pen in an easily accessible place, close to the space where you like to relax and unwind, i.e. your bedside table or coffee table.
Do More Of What You Love
2020 has been a hard year for many, and most of us are in need of some well-deserved self-care. To keep your spirits high in the upcoming year, spend some time discovering what you love, and do more of it. Explore hobbies that you may have yet to try, or dive deeper into the things you enjoy but have not prioritized.
