Home for the Holidays: How CBD Can Help Cope with Holiday Stress

We look forward to the holiday season all year long. Spending time with family and friends is the best. But the stress and anxiety that can accompany this festive season can feel overwhelming.  This year, let CBD for stress relief help make the holiday season truly joyous!

Stress and anxiety tend to peak around all of the family gatherings. It’s no wonder, with relatives asking if you’re going to be getting married anytime soon or if there may be the little pitter patter of babies in the future.  Maybe a brutal trek of planes, trains and ubers has taken its physical toll on your body.  If you’re an empty-nester, you might be missing your kiddos who are somewhere else for the holidays.  Looking after your physical well being as well as your mental health should be a priority and CBD is one way to help maintain your calm through the entire season. 

The planning for the holidays can be dizzying.  Did you remember to buy a gift for your niece?  What are you bringing to your in-laws’ house for Thanksgiving?  Your brain feels like it is overdrive from all of the details that you need to take care of.  Give yourself a break with CBD for stress relief.  The calming effect that CBD has is beneficial for giving yourself a break from the plethora of plans you need to make.  

Travel itself can make you cranky but battling long airport lines, packed flights, schlepping bulky luggage and sitting for hours in traffic jams during the busy holiday windows will do a number on you physically.  The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD are ideal to help combat the physical manifestations of travel like headaches and stiff muscles, as well as mood swings, which can make a long leg of travel challenging.  

If you need to make a good impression on your significant other’s family during a family dinner or in front of your boss and team at a workplace holiday party, maintaining your sobriety will help you stay clear headed and social.  CBD is a valuable ally in helping you maintain your calm at stressful holiday parties and may prevent you from consuming too much alcohol. 

Keep your holiday glow by using a CBD-infused topical or mixing a few drops of CBD oil with your favorite moisturizer.  CBD is a potent antioxidant that can help fight free radicals that can result in the visible appearance of aging.  

Sleep well, even when you’re napping on a hard guest bed or on an inflatable mattress, with the power of CBD.  During the holidays, the added stress can make you more prone to insomnia.  CBD is a great way to support healthy sleep without needing to turn to over the counter sleep products. By working with the body’s endocannabinoid system, CBD helps support balance in your entire body, resulting in a more restful night’s sleep.
