In the last few years, Americans have grown increasingly more aware of their own health. Whether it’s in response to a decade of unhealthy eating habits, changes in culture, or just an interest in taking better care of their health, it seems like everyone is looking for new and more natural ways to care for themselves. We can’t say we blame them and in fact, we commend them for their willingness to take their health into their own hands.
Here at CBx Essentials, we’re all about natural living. It’s why we offer such high-quality CBD products. If you’re ready to make some changes in your health or you’re just looking for a few new ideas on how to do so, take a look at some of the suggestions we’ve outlined below.
Spend Some More Time Outside
Over the last few decades, there has been a dramatic shift in how and where we do our work. For hundreds of years, most people would work outside performing some kind of manual labor, but most people today now work in an office setting. Along with the changes in how we work are changes in how we spend our free time. People are quite happy to stay at home or go to the movie theater rather than go outdoors. As a result, we spend less of our time outside and more of it indoors. While this change might seem innocuous, it can have profound effects on our health.
Countless studies have found a connection between improved health and spending time outside. A large body of research suggests that spending a few minutes outside each day can help to alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety. Moreover, spending time outside encourages you to exercise more. Even if it’s just a walk around the block, you’re being more active than you would be if you were sitting on the couch. Plus, you’re getting plenty of fresh air. The EPA suggests that outdoor air quality is far superior to the indoor air quality of most homes and businesses. A trip outside means you’re spending less time exposing yourself to allergens, irritants, and pollutants.
Be Aware of What You’re Eating and Drinking
The standard American diet isn’t as great as it could be. Over the last few decades, convenience foods have replaced home cooked meals. We’ve laced potentially healthy meals with sugars and salts that pack on the calories. One of the fastest ways you can naturally improve your health is by being more conscious of what you’re eating. Prioritize fruits and vegetables in your meals while coming back on red meats. Soy products make for a great meat alternative, and new advances in meat-free products offer you that same meat taste without the negative health effects.
Similarly, it’s important to be aware of what you’re drinking. We all have our favorite coffee shop or smoothie place, and while these beverages might taste good they aren’t always good for our bodies. In many cases, our favorite beverages are packed with sugars and preservatives. They are an incredible source of calories. Instead of reaching for a sports drink, try a glass of cold water instead. If you’re still craving a flavored beverage of some kind, drinking tea may be the low-calorie alternative that you’re looking for.
Include CBD into Your Lifestyle
Parallel with this renewed interest in fitness and health is the growth of the CBD industry. Naturally derived from hemp, CBD has shown promise in helping to enhance people’s health in a variety of ways. When blended with other natural ingredients into a natural pain relief cream, it can be used to help soothe aches and pains. Others have found it useful in helping them achieve a positive innerspace. Some have even had success in using CBD as a way to help manage their insomnia.
CBx Essentials offers premium-grade CBD products sourced from proprietary strains of hemp. Using a selection of organic ingredients and materials, we have created a line of daily body oils, creams, and salves that can easily be added to your natural healthcare routine.
