CBD and New Year’s Resolutions - Leaf Remedys

Is it just us, or did the last week of December make you crave something different?

You know, for things to be a little more simple, manageable, peaceful—and filled with meaning, connections, and love!

As the New Year begins, the advice we want to give to you is that while societal pressures may urge you to take on more in this New Year, like:

  • More striving
  • More success
  • More chasing
  • More burning the midnight oil…

We say, slow down and focus on your self care. Because your New Year’s resolutions are ultimately about making things better than they were a year ago.


Why do New Year’s resolutions fail?

It’s a great question, and the internet is filled with articles stating the latest top 10 reasons why New Year’s resolutions fail.

Some of those reasons include: Your goals aren’t realistic. You feel overwhelmed and stressed every time you try to fulfill your New Year's resolutions. Or you beat yourself up every time you lose focus [¹]. 

Don’t get us wrong, these lists aren’t wrong… They actually speak a lot of truth. But instead of pushing yourself for more, more, more this New Year, consider the idea of less:

  • Less stress
  • Less burnout
  • Less exhaustion
  • Less distractions
  • Less mental clutter
  • Less interruptions to your sleep
  • Less saying yes to things you don’t actually want to do

We’re convinced that with less stress, and of course all of the negative distractions listed above, your New Year’s resolutions can become more tangible.

But how do you live a life with less stress?

Here’s one way…

Incorporate CBD into your New Year’s resolutions

You see, CBD has a way of managing normal stress. In fact, many of the studies surrounding CBD explore its correlation with stress, inflammation, and anxiety. And guess what? The results from these studies were thought-provoking and intriguing to say the least [²,³].

But since stress is known to wreak havoc on your system, and it’s often the main culprit of failed New Year’s resolutions, then giving high quality CBD a try should be a no-brainer, right []?

We all know CBD is insanely therapeutic. That’s nothing new. But the real question is…

Can CBD help you achieve your New Year’s Resolutions?

Absolutely! While we know that CBD is not a cure-all, it’s great at enhancing brain function, maintaining calmness, and helping you cope with external and normal stresses [²,³].

So when you feel like throwing in your New Year’s resolutions towel, CBD might be what changes your mind.

When you feel overwhelmed that you’re not achieving your New Year’s resolutions fast enough, CBD may help you not beat yourself up, and help you just slow down instead.

When you feel discouraged, depressed, and stressed out that you didn’t accomplish your New Year’s resolution by December 31st next year, CBD may be a perspective you need to see that you are a better, newer, and healthier version of yourself after all.

CBD and New Year’s

The New Year should be all about you and your selfcare. Don’t let stress and other negative thoughts keep you from achieving your New Year’s resolutions.

But when those thoughts creep in, when the stress seems to take over, and when the pain is so great that you just can’t seem to move forward, then give high quality CBDa try.

Seriously, you don’t know unless you try.

So, if you’re ready to conquer your New Year’s resolution like never before, we encourage you to invest in yourself and try high quality CBD oil and CBD gummies today. We’re excited to see what this New Year has in store for you!
