In this busy world we call life it is important to find the time to wind down and focus on your own well-being. It can be challenging to find the right time or activity to devote to yourself, but it is possible.
Cannabis enthusiasts usually enjoy indica strains like Medi X’s Blueberry to rest, relax and heal. However, a sativa or hybrid strain could be the motivation you need to work on your own well-being to achieve overall relaxation and healing.
Cannabis and Gardening
Since many of us have office jobs, gardening is a great way to get outside, be active yet find Zen. Gardening is time where you can spend away from modern technology by being out in the sun, caring for the earth and connecting with nature. Plus, once your thumb gets greener, you can start growing your own veggies or even cannabis.
Fun Tip: Did you know that you can help your garden just by breathing? Plants will absorb the carbon dioxide exhaled from your breath and convert it back to oxygen into the atmosphere. Send your vape plume into the plants and watch the cannabis vapor move.
Cannabis and Exercise
There is no question that exercise is number 1 when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Mandee Lee, the host of “Try This” at Green Flower Media incorporates cannabis into her exercise regime. Cannabis helped her get excited to exercise and to also work through the pain and surpass goals. Combine Super Lemon Haze with Grand Daddy Purple for the perfect work out hybrid – energetic sativa balanced with an indica that helps you focus. For sure you will climb that hill, stretch out that pose and lift that heavier weight
Cannabis and Meditating
Everyone deserves to find a moment of peace in a day. Even 1 minute of meditation can improve your life tremendously. When was the last time your mind was quiet? Learning how to meditate takes practice. Find a happy spot in your home, or outside if possible, take a quick puff of the cannabis hybrid strain, Strawberry Banana, and just breathe. The trick to meditation is focusing on your breath. Inhale…exhale…inhale…exhale….
Cannabis and the Arts
Most of our jobs heavily rely on using the left side of the brain which controls organizational and logical abilities. But what about the more creative right side of the brain? Paint, read, write, listen to music, finish a puzzle…all these activities pair well with cannabis. Plus, exercising the right side of the brain means more BRAIN POWER!!!
YOU CAN DO IT!
Most cannabis enthusiasts have positive memories related to cannabis – especially since cannabis could trigger euphoric and analgesic receptors in the brain. So, we can assume that cannabis could contribute to an overall sense of well-being. Incorporating these activities on a regular basis may also contribute to an overall sense of well-being for several reasons. First, personal time used wisely is uplifting and these activities are all about you. Second, focus is required to be done correctly. You will not be able to think about your “not so imaginary checklist”. Not only are you physically removed from your daily routine, but your mind will get a timeout as well. Finally, it all helps, and you know it.
Next weekend, wake up an hour before sunrise and go for a walk – have some Medi X’s Maui Wowie on hand for some euphoric cannabis sativa pick me up. As the sun rises find a spot to meditate and breathe. Later in the afternoon, fill your vape pen with Pineapple Express and start working on your garden or go get artsy. Try having a day like this at least once a month. Or start slow and spread out the activities throughout the week. Watch out…. you just might find a new hobby.
Free yourself from the idea that you have no time. Time is available once you are committed. Imagine feeling energized and stress-free with the promise of a wonderful day to enjoy. This could be you.
