1. Spread calm.
Three drops each of lemon, lavender and rosemary in your essential oil diffuser can help you relax.
2. Stretch when you’re stressed.
3. Create a mini wellness retreat.
One night each week, soak your feet in lemongrass-infused Epsom salt to reduce inflammation. Light a lavender-scented soy candle and read a few chapters of your favorite novel. Many people also use CBD for relaxation.
4. Bathe in the woods.
Because why not? Coined in Japan, forest bathing (Shinrin-Yoku) is an ancient natural practice.
5. Take a nap.
Even a 10-minute power snooze can serve as a “brain-reset” for the day. Certain CBD users report that their oil helps them doze quickly.
6. Have a daily spoonful of super-local honey for allergies.
7. Meditate for just five minutes.
8. Call a friend.
Humans are naturally social beings.
9. Breath deep and purposefully.
It’s good for anxiety and stress.
10. Add some houseplants.
They can remove household toxins.
11. Ditch the sugary drinks.
Instead, opt for a leafy juice smoothie to curb your cravings. Lots of CBD powders and oisl taste just fine in your favorite smoothie.
12. Play with a furry friend.
Petting a dog for 15 minutes releases the feel-good hormones serotonin, prolactin, and oxytocin, and lowers the stress hormone cortisol, one study finds.
13. Up your vitamin C intake.
14. Eat more fish.
Especially wild salmon and ocean trout.
15. Try easy acupressure.
A quick massage of the soft skin between your thumb and forefinger can relieve stress headaches. Your favorite CBD balm may offer a potential stress-reducing boost as well.
16. Much on celery.
It’s packed with vitamins and the crunch will ease hunger.
17. Smile and laugh as much as you can.
It decreases blood pressure.
