Flatten the (Stress) Curve

Flatten the (Stress) Curve

April 30, 2020

We're all familiar with the term 'Flatten the Curve'. But we want to highlight something slightly different, the stress curve. Many of us are dealing with additional stress because our lives have drastically changed amidst the pandemic. Our stress is climbing and we need to focus on flattening and steadying this curve for our mental and physical health.

Here are our tips and tricks to flatten the impending stress curve:

Move your body every day
Whether it's a daily walk around the block, an at-home workout or stretching & practicing yoga, getting the blood flowing never fails to make you feel better and it can improve the quality of your sleep. Do what you can and don't fret if your routine is not what it used to be!
 
Take CBD
CBD is widely used for stress relief, to relieve pain, improve sleep, and recover from workouts. Now it's a better time than ever to take CBD - which is in three of our blends, Recovery, Revive & Snooze. We add 420mg of full-spectrum hemp extract per jar for maximum effect. 
 
Talk to your friends and family
Although we cannot see friends and family in person, we can still connect with them over the phone, video chat, or by snail mail. It can be a good reminder that we are all going through this together and that we still have our support systems.
 
Take Adaptogens
Adaptogens are incredible herbs, roots, and mushrooms that help the body adapt and adjust to stress. They relieve stress by modulating the release of stress hormones from the adrenal glands and as biological response modifiers (BRMs), adaptogens restore the body's innate immune function and help the body adapt to different stressors. We love Cordyceps, Astragalus & Reishi to name a few!
 
Try a Tech Break
Social media can be a great way to connect but it can also cause added stress and decrease our productivity. While we're all at home, try putting the phone down and putting the computer away after work hours and see how you feel. Try doing a puzzle, playing board games, or taking a long walk instead!
