New Year, New You: Creating Healthy Habits

Share if you care

Well, guys and gals, we’re roughly one month into the new year, and some of us are still trying to create healthy new habits. And if you already have some healthy habits you’ve perfected, this just means it’s time to up the ante and take your health and wellness to the next level! 

But this doesn’t change how hard it is to hone in on realistic goals sometimes. Sure, you’d like to get up and fresh-press your own natural juice every morning. But then, life throws a bunch of things at you all at once — and BAM — there’s no time for at-home juicing. 

Don’t worry! We’re going to shed some light on how you can simplify the process of creating healthy habits, no matter how busy you get. And we’ll show you how CBD can help you reach your goals!

Why Healthy Habits Are Important

It’s easy to compile bad habits in today’s world. Every day we’re introduced to things that can quickly morph into bad habits — your new iPhone with the endless cool features, a new Netflix series with a cliffhanger ending each episode, or even that cute little bakery that just opened down the street. 

We’re not saying you shouldn’t live life and enjoy these things, but instead, enjoy these things in moderation and place your main focus on things like exercise, trying new “healthy recipes,” journaling, or reading for at least five minutes a day. 

A healthy habit is anything that enhances your well-being, whether it’s physical, emotional, spiritual, or social. So, let’s take a closer look at some practises you can welcome into your daily or weekly routine. 

Get Active

Millions of people struggle with this one — getting to the gym and getting enough exercise. 

Unfortunately, Covid quarantines have made it extremely difficult for some people to maintain any fitness routine since gyms were closed for such a long time. And even though gyms are open in some areas now, some don’t feel it’s safe enough. 

This begs the question…

How can you stay active and avoid the couch? 

If you’re not comfortable working out around others just yet, here are some things you can do to stay active. Did you know there are plenty of apps you can use for home workout! For example, the Peloton app has tons of pre-recorded classes in various categories, like yoga, cardio, cycle, boot camp, and much more. They also have a full schedule of live classes you can join. 

But don’t be afraid to take it back to the basics, too. For example, try laying your yoga mat on the floor every morning for a combination workout —  a healthy morning habit with long-lasting effects you’ll feel all day. Start with some light stretching and deep breathing. Then, you can mix in some sit-ups, crunches, planks, or anything else that benefits your body or the areas you want to focus on.  

CBD for Workout Recovery

If you want to work different muscles every day, you’ll need a plan for recovery from the aches and pains you’re sure to experience in your muscles and joints. For many, that means finding the right CBD topical product. Our Muscle & Joint CBD Balm Stick is a premium, roll-on topical with the soothing effects of menthol and wintergreen, paired with 750mg of broad spectrum CBD.

But suppose you’re looking for a CBD balm that adds another layer of calm. In this case, you should opt for our Calming and Moisturising CBD Balm Stick with the nourishing, protective power of natural shea butter, Roman chamomile, lavender, and tea tree oil — giving your senses a pick-me-up right when you need it most. This effective CBD balm quickly became a CBDfx crowd-favourite, because it provides a little slice of zen when your temples are throbbing or your neck and shoulders are tight after a long day. 

Many find it to be a great addition to their sunrise yoga routine, because it helps wake up stiff muscles in the early hours of the morning. 

Drink More Water 

“Drinking water” is always on any “healthy habit” list, but there’s a good reason for this! You know the human body consists of 60% water, but did you know water accounts for 75% of your brain mass? 

This means when you don’t get enough water, you might experience brain fog and mood swings. If you’re trying to drink more water every day, try carrying a water bottle with you. Believe it or not, you’ll drink more water than you usually would simply because you have it close at hand. 

It also helps to set daily water goals, even if you have your “on-the-go” water bottle. You can even find water bottles with hourly goal lines printed on the bottle to help keep you on track — how cool is that?

If you’re someone who doesn’t generally like drinking water, try adding cut fruit to your water. Orange, lemon, cucumber, and mint is a popular blend that many have come to love as a refreshing beverage. 

Overall, try playing with different fruit combinations to see what makes water more enjoyable for you if that’s holding you back.

Start Your Day With Positive Vibes 

Have you noticed how your morning routine sets the tone of your day? Try starting the day with journaling combined with the energising effects of our CBD + CBG Wellness Tincture! This all-encompassing tincture contains powerful ingredients, like curcumin and coenzyme Q10, to keep you feeling motivated and ready for the day. 

CBD alone has the tendency to be too relaxing in the beginning of the day, but this formulation contains a 2:1 ratio of CBD to CBG, providing balanced, yet uplifting effects that you’ll love to start your day with. 

Journaling is a great way to stay in touch with your needs and develop mindfulness that helps you make better decisions throughout the day — decisions that align with what you really want. 

Sometimes we make hasty decisions and wonder how we found ourselves down a certain road — journaling can help with this. It also helps reduce stress and anxiety, as some consider it a form of therapy, because you’re releasing negative or stagnant emotions that may possibly hold you back. 

Journaling also helps you create and maintain goals, track progress, and improve self-confidence. It’s a helpful habit to shuffle into your self-care routine. 

Fuel Your Body With Vitamins and Nutrients 

Proper nutrition plays a critical role in how you feel every day. However, it’s hard to keep up with what seems like a laundry list of vitamins and supplements, especially when it comes to remembering to take them! On the other hand, our Multivitamin CBD Gummies make it easy to streamline your whole vitamin routine, because you’ll want to take these every day. 

You get the chill vibes of CBD combined with the wellness-boosting effects of our multivitamin blend, with hand-selected vitamin combinations formulated for both men and women!

A tiny fraction of society receives proper nutrition from their diet, but this is where our Multivitamin CBD Gummies come into play. Each serving contains 50mg of broad spectrum CBD, alongside vitamins A, C, D3, E, & B Complex (with added calcium and zinc in the women’s formula), helping you fill in the nutritional gaps!  

Parting Thoughts 

As you set off on your journey to healthier living, one thing to remember is that everyone does things in their own time and in their own way. So, don’t stress about progress or your perceived lack thereof. Instead, if you feel like you need to do better, take a pause and write about it during your morning journaling session — and make a plan to do better

There are all kinds of healthy habits, so it’s about finding and creating the ones that can make a meaningful difference in your life. How will you know when you’ve found them? Well, hopefully you’ll feel everything just start to “click.” But even if you’re not there yet, don’t lose hope and don’t stop. Every effort is a move in a positive direction.

So, what kind of healthy habits are you thinking about taking on for 2022?
