Quality of life depends on emotional, mental, and physical wellness. We seek to provide support at every level through the power of Full Spectrum Hemp Oil, which can help you rediscover balance and adapt to the new normal of the pandemic. From our soothing salves and bath fizzies to our specialty tinctures, our CBD-rich products can take you from surviving to thriving.
As we approach the one-year mark of the pandemic, it’s easy to understand why you might feel like your quality of life is flagging.
The abundance of restrictions, closures, and news surrounding COVID have created a very serious sense of pandemic fatigue. Are you bored staying at home? Depressed by the headlines? Stressed over finances? Experiencing sleepless nights? You may very well be suffering the effects of pandemic fatigue.
Fighting pandemic fatigue and reclaiming your quality of life may seem impossible. Conceptualizing what the world will look like when things return to “normal” is a difficult task, one that can increase our fears and lower our mood.
While the pandemic is out of our control, many things are within our realm of influence—and these things can have a dramatic impact on how we feel on a daily basis.
Reclaiming Your Quality of Life
Consider trying one or more of the following the next time you feel overwhelmed by the pandemic:
- Meditate: With regular practice, meditation can make a huge difference in your daily wellness. Meditation can help us to feel more centered in the present moment, thereby alleviating fears for the future. It can allow us the space to sort through negative emotions and develop a new perspective.
- Sleep: We’ve blogged about the benefits of a good night’s sleep. When you rest well, your body and mind can help you recover from life’s daily stressors. Sleep plays an important role in the regulation of our moods and our immune system, both of which are critical during the pandemic.
- Move: We don’t mean move cross-country or even to the other side of town! Move your body. A simple walk or an at-home workout can burn off excess energy, decrease boredom, and help you find your center again.
- Spend Time in Nature: Forest bathing—or shinrin-yoku—emerged in Japan in the 1980s as an exercise for mental and physical health. According to researchers, plant-derived compounds called phytoncides can reduce stress hormones and increase white blood cell activity. Studies show that time in nature can boost mood, improve immunity, and decrease stress as we inhale phytoncides.
Adaptogenic Mushrooms, Full Spectrum Hemp Oil, and Quality of Life
Supplements are another key factor in combatting pandemic fatigue. Our CBD-rich blends can help keep you thriving mentally, emotionally, and physically, but we especially recommend our Calm + Focus blend if you are struggling to elevate your quality of life.
Calm + Focus is a co-extracted blend featuring Lion’s Mane. This adaptogenic mushroom can reduce inflammation and oxidative stress while stimulating the growth of both brain and nerve cells.
Additionally, this blend features an extra measure of CBDA. A 2013 study found this compound to be extremely effective at binding to a serotonin receptor associated with anti-anxiety and anti-nausea.
At a time when many of us are struggling with anxious thoughts, an abundance of stress, sleepless nights, gloominess, or general burnout, we believe that Calm + Focus can help mitigate emotional burnout.
Remember to Breathe
When things feel endless, remember you are not alone. Breathe and focus on the things you can change or on the things that make you feel most yourself. On the days when you need some extra help discovering your peace, let us help you with the natural power of Full Spectrum Hemp Oil, adaptogenic mushrooms, and specialty herbs.
