3 Self-Care Tips to Get You Through the Holidays
The holidays are in our grasp, so long as we have hands to clasp! That being said, sometimes there are just too many hands outstretched, too many mouths awaiting your world famous holiday ham and too many starry eyed kids impatiently anticipating their presents. This time of year can be a whirlwind of stress, anxiety and– despite being surrounded by crowds of people– overwhelming loneliness.
Bringing joy to the people you love is what the holidays are all about, but it can be hard to provide the festive spirit when you feel like you are living in a sugar-plum nightmare. This holiday season, as you make your list and check it twice, make sure you take the time to give yourself the best gift of all: Rest, relaxation, and some well-deserved me time with your favourite green herb (no, we’re not talking Holly). Here are 3 Tips to help you with Stress, anxiety and the Christmas blues.
1. When The Guests are Arriving and the Hors D’Oeuvres are not out…
There are 30 kids running around, family members are discussing politics and you think you smell something burning. The stress of the holidays are all too familiar, especially for those of us on whom it falls to take the reindeer by the antlers and steer the festivities in the right direction.
When your head starts spinning like a dreidel on ice, don’t be afraid to slip away and take a deep inhale of nature’s relaxant. Get a nice Indica vape session in to ease your mind or, better yet, plan your night out ahead of time and enjoy that cannabis-infused, sugary cookie before the chaos even begins!
2. When You Have $20 in Your Wallet and 30 Gifts to Buy
I don’t know about you, but buying holiday gifts used to be a lot more fun. From surviving daily life to buying children’s toys, everything is seemingly more expensive than it once was. As the festive dates approach and your list somehow manages to get longer, it can oftentimes feel like the finely decorated walls are closing in on you. With each passing day, anxiety manages to force its way into your holiday cheer and prevent you from living your happiest life.
Fortunately, there are ways to to sleigh your holiday insecurities so you can focus on creative gift solutions to remedy your dwindling bank account.
Next time you feel like the pressure of playing Santa is weighing on your chest, take a step back, inhale some of those calming B+F pre-rolls you’ve been stocking up on and give your mind the Christmas miracle that is a long, uninterrupted break. Many strains are designed to spark your creativity; an inexpensive creative gift is a great way to show your loved ones how much you care without crippling your funds.
3. When You Just Want to Say ‘Bah Humbug’ to the Whole Darn Thing
The holidays are supposed to be a time of joy, laughter, family and friends. So, why is it that this time of year sees more people affected by depression than any other time of year? The answer is tenfold– maybe the holidays bring your family a collective stress that always ends in a blowout. Maybe the idea of holiday joy seems way too hard to fake for a couple of weeks. Maybe your mailbox looks like the Grinch’s– short on holiday cards from someone, anyone, letting you know they care.
Times are tough, and winter can be cold and lonely. When I am feeling down in the seasonal dumps, self-care and self-medicating go hand-in-hand with making it through the chilliest of months.
Research shows that cannabis helps reduce feelings of anxiety, stress and depression– and these downers often come part and parcel with the holiday season. Don’t let a chaotic Christmas or a Hectic Hanukkah get you down. Be the gift that keeps on giving, and start with giving the best gift to yourself: cannabis, R&R, and a whole lotta sugary treats.
The way our bodies respond to cannabinoids is unique so the effects of individual strains are different across the board. Research on what contributes to the effects of each strain is still being conducted, so we will do our best to bring the latest scientific updates and advancements right to your fingertips. As with everything, please use good judgement when consuming cannabis products and exercise moderation. If you are unsure of whether or not cannabis is right for you, we recommend consulting a licensed medical doctor with experience in cannabis. Always obtain products from a vendor licensed to sell medical grade cannabis.
