The school year is here. And whether you’re attending graduate school or are a parent of a preschooler, you know it’s going to get stressful—fast. All that stress can have some pretty nasty side-effects not just mentally, but physically. Your favorite Denver dispensary
wants to help you avoid those pitfalls as much as possible. Here are a few simple things you can do to help you de-stress this fall.
Go for a Walk
Believe it or not, one of the simplest and most effective ways to deal with stress is to go for a walk. Open your front door, take a deep breath of fresh air, and take a stroll around the block. You don’t have to go far. Remember, you’re not trying to exercise. You’re trying to clear your mind. See if you can focus on anything other than what’s stressing you out. Think about the sunshine, focus on the way the wind blows through the leaves, or think about something you’re grateful for. Often, these little shifts can help you push reset on your thoughts and keep stress from taking over.
Make a Cup of Tea
Tea can be one of the most relaxing beverages in the world. But you’ll want to avoid caffeine if you’re trying to relax and calm your mind. Choose an herbal tea like chamomile or look for a decaffeinated version of your favorite black teas. For an added dose of relaxation, add your favorite cannabis tincture or CBD tincture to the mix.
Dedicate a Bit of Time to Yourself
Everyone needs a bit of me-time every once in a while—parents especially. So, take some time out for yourself each week. This can be however long you can carve out of your busy schedule. There’s no right answer here. Use that time to do something that you enjoy. This can be watching a favorite show, reading, listening to music, or even going out for a fancy coffee drink. When you give yourself a little TLC, you’ll end up feeling refreshed and better prepared to tackle whatever was stressing you out in the first place.
Try Cannabis Before Bed
For many people, sleep can be hard to come by when they’re stressed. But traditional sleep aids aren’t always the best choice. They can interrupt the quality of your rest if you’re not careful. Instead, try a cannabis product before bed. This can be an edible gummy, a joint, or even a tincture under the tongue. For many people, this is enough to help settle their minds and let them get to sleep without dealing with the racing thoughts that kept running through their minds all day.
