Despite the difference in personalities, people are all creatures of habit. It’s human nature to hate change, and we always have a certain way of doing things. Often, these habits stay with us for a lifetime. Case in point: it takes a tremendous amount of effort to break a habit.
That’s why it’s important to establish healthy routines right from the get-go. And if there’s one thing you should make a habit of, it’s CBD. Research has provided rich evidence of its health benefits.
Here’s the catch: building healthy habits is as difficult as breaking a bad one. So in this article, we’ll explore how you can create a realistic and sustainable CBD routine.
Are Routines Important?
There are two reasons a routine is good for you, according to Mental Health First Aid:
- Better Health. Sticking to proper eating habits, exercise patterns, and sleeping schedules promotes wellness.
- Reduce Stress. Following a routine helps reduce stress by giving you greater control over your health.
When CBD is concerned, there’s also a greater chance of reaping the benefits if you take it regularly and in the long term.
Now, where do you start building good habit?
Step 1: Set Realistic Goals
Goal-setting may seem fussy (why do we have to complicate things anyway?), but trust us, it’s easier to stick to a routine when you have a result in mind.
This isn’t limited to CBD-related routines; it can be applied to any kind of habit formation. Whenever you feel demotivated to follow a schedule, whenever you feel like you’re going astray, always look to your goal: what am I trying to achieve?
What Goal Should I Set?
Your goal doesn’t have to be complicated. But it has to be realistic and measurable. For example, your goal could be as simple as
Take my Verma Farms CBD Capsule once a day before going to bed.
It’s simple, specific, and easily monitored. Reminder: the goal largely depends on your preferred CBD product and recommended dosage. It also depends on your lifestyle and personal routines.
Step 2: Choose CBD Products that Support Your Goal
Once you’ve set a goal, it’s time to find a CBD product that fits seamlessly into your life. There’s no shortage of options for you. Verma Farms, for example, offers tasty, ready-to-eat snacks or CBD oil that you can incorporate into your cooking.
Here are some recommendations for choosing a CBD product:
For Workout Routines
CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, which makes it a good support for muscle relief after intense workouts. A lot of athletes use CBD to support their bodies as they train for maximum performance.
A good way to use CBD for sports recovery is through a topical. This provides a higher concentration of cannabinoid extract in an area, like the shoulders and calves.
You don’t have to be an elite athlete to reap the benefits of CBD. You can make a habit of using topicals after a gym session.
For Your Skin Care Routine
CBD skin care has been gaining a lot of traction, and for good reason. According to a Forbes article, CBD provides antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits that can be beneficial in treating skin concerns like dryness and inflammation.
Just like our recommendation for sports recovery, you can also use a CBD topical for healthier skin. As we mentioned in our CBD skin care article, you can apply topical CBD at bedtime or after bath time.
For Your Sleep Routine
Sleep is a pillar of health, but almost everyone takes it for granted. Therefore, sleep is one of the best ways to incorporate CBD.
If you can’t seem to turn your mind off during bedtime, try CBD to help you wind down. CBD can simulate a calming effect by interacting with your endocannabinoid system. The Verma Farms CBD Sleep Gummies, for example, are infused with melatonin to further help you drift off to dreamland.
Your nutrition is a convenient and almost effortless way to incorporate CBD. We have an array of fun gummies that you can eat as a dessert or snack. Verma Farms also has flavored CBD oils that you can add to your food.
- Add a dash of Strawberry CBD oil to your cupcake batter
- Add a few drops of Watermelon CBD to your fruit popsicles
- Add Mango CBD oil to your salad dressing
Step 3: Adjust Your Routine as Needed
So you’ve laid out a solid plan to establish a CBD routine. Do you have to follow it to a T?
No, you don’t have to. The structure will help you reach your goals but don’t be afraid to make changes as you go. For example:
- You find out that it’s more convenient to add CBD oil to your protein-packed meals instead of using a topical after working out.
- You always forget to take sleep gummies before bed, but you never forget your Verma Farms CBD Rainbow Worms dessert after lunch.
If the routine isn’t working as you hoped, you can always go back to Step 2 and adjust as needed.
Step 4: Track and Celebrate Your Progress
Once you’ve got your routine down flat, it’s time for the fun part: celebrate your success! When you’ve hit your goal several weeks in a row, give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done.It’s time to bust out the cocktails. CBD-infused, of course.
