Ways to Beat the Winter Blues with Cannabis Hemp

The winter blues can be a difficult time for many of us. With the cold weather and shorter days, our moods can often become affected, leading to feelings of isolation and depression. Luckily, there are ways to beat this seasonal slump using cannabis hemp. Here’s how cannabis hemp can help you stay positive and vibrant during the winter months.

Cannabis Hemp as an Anti-Depressant

Cannabis hemp contains compounds known as cannabinoids or CBDs which act on brain receptors that control mood and emotion. Studies have shown that CBD has antidepressant effects due to its ability to increase serotonin levels in the brain. This helps to reduce feelings of anxiety, depression and stress while improving overall wellbeing. It also has anti-inflammatory properties which can help improve physical health as well as mental health. Additionally, when used in conjunction with other treatments such as cognitive behavioral therapy or lifestyle changes, it can be highly effective in managing symptoms of depression.

Bolstering Immunity with Cannabis Hemp

The cold weather is often accompanied by illnesses such as colds and flu due to weakened immunity systems caused by lower temperatures and lack of sunlight. However, cannabis hemp may be able to help bolster your immune system during winter months thanks to its antioxidant properties. These antioxidants fight off free radicals which cause cell damage and weaken your immune system over time. In addition, cannabis hemp has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce inflammation caused by respiratory illnesses like asthma or bronchitis – ailments particularly common during the colder months.

Improving Sleep Quality with Cannabis Hemp

The shorter days and dark evenings associated with winter can often disrupt our sleeping patterns, leaving us feeling tired throughout the day and unable to focus on work or other important tasks. Fortunately, cannabis hemp may be able to help improve sleep quality during these colder months thanks to its sedative effects on both the body and mind. This helps relax muscles, reducing physical tension which often leads to better sleep quality overall. Additionally, it helps regulate hormones such as cortisol which promote relaxation and improved moods – two more factors that will lead towards better sleep quality at night.

3 SOLID Self Care Tips for 2023

In all honesty, we’re writing on this subject because it something we feel not only is relatable, but something we seem to be struggling with currently while juggling family life, the dr. milo business, staying healthy, taking time for ourselves while holding it all together. If this resonates then keep reading for some semblance of it all or at least some sort of self- hug.

Self Care Tip #1

First off, You’re doing great. You’re reading this, therefore you’re interesting in bettering your life and hence, lives around you.  Let’s start with some positive self talk. Positive self talk should be something we actually feel so that it doesn’t feel forced or contrite. Are you proud of yourself for showering today? Then hell yeah! Be proud of that and let that sink in. Pick 3 things that are highlights of your life right now. Now, thinking about all those things, let’s just take big breath to cleanse, and head onward to this reading and the moments ahead.

Self Care Tip #2

Taking time for ourselves can be momentary. Don’t have an hour for a yoga class? Literally, don’t sweat it. While studying kinesiology and massage, we learned that taking just 2 min./day to lay on our backs with feet up the wall not only resets the spine adding synovial fluid back into the cartlidges but it resets our mind as well. Our spine craves rest to recover all the fluid that is naturally used throughout the day. If we lay, just for 2 min the synovial fluid (thick fluid between your joints) This fluid cushions the ends of bones and reduces friction when you move your joints. Synovial fluid then gets it’s chance to replenish in our bodies giving our spines fluidity and a supple healing to move forward with our days.

Self care tip #3

Stop listening to others and taking it as bible or what may be true for you. For us, this automatically leads to comparing. Your healing process will be vastly different from a friend the same age, health and size. Because no two are alike in a beautiful way, our minds are so incredibly different. A lot of a healing process starts with our minds so to think that your trajectory or outcome will be the same as someone else’s is just putting limits on beliefs of what you’re capable of. We’re capable of healing ourselves. It just takes some tuning INWARD.

*And of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention… go rub some Dr. Milo Topical Relief on.
