We can all agree on this – absolutely nothing has been normal about 2020. Every facet of our lives has looked different this year.
We’ve learned in 2020 that our home is our sanctuary for comfort and inspiration. Our wellness must be nurtured with essentials that help us feel the best we can morning, noon, and night.
At High Falls Hemp NY, we believe in enhancing the lives of all people and pets – one product (or many) at a time. These products can help you lead a more relaxed, balanced, and healthy lifestyle from the comforts of your home.
While the pandemic has disrupted our lives, it provided the potential for us to slow down and focus on taking better care of ourselves and our beloved friends and family.
We’ve compiled a list of tips that can help you enhance your life and find some relief and self-care ideas to keep stress levels low and aid in relaxing your body.
Maintain Your Connections
While virtual gatherings are the new norm and surely don’t replace the real-life, in-person experience, they are at least a way to see a familiar face. It’s important to be thankful for the gift of technology to maintain and reinforce our relationships. Whether it’s a dinner party online, a lady’s night out virtually, a remote family holiday or birthday gathering, watching sports with the guys, or an online reunion of classmates, there are so many ways we can remain connected while apart.
Follow Your Heart
We believe in purchasing what you love – those things that will be used and loved because they help you look and feel your best.
This means choosing to buy things that enhance your health and wellbeing. We have been overwhelmed by the barrage of products being paraded around you promising to boost your immunity, improve every aspect of your life, and treat and cure medical issues and challenges.
At High Falls Hemp NY, we do not make false promises about products that will treat or cure anything. We are on a mission to offer holistic plant-based wellness alternatives that can easily be incorporated into your daily wellness routine to support your wellbeing. Transparency, credibility, and trust are key to our mission.
Keep it Simple
We believe in keeping it simple. Innovate when it makes a difference. Explore new possibilities for a better life.
Remember when we used to complain about how life was moving too fast and we barely had a chance to rest? With all this extra time at home, take advantage of it.
Create new wellness rituals that you do every day to take care of yourself. Incorporate the right routine and select the right personal care products that support you on this journey of health and wellness. On this journey, there are a handful of things you need to focus on for your mind and body.
First and foremost, is a restful night’s sleep. That means a solid 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep through the night. According to the Sleep Foundation, adults need between 7 and 9 hours of sleep per night. As we get older, having a full night’s sleep can become more challenging. This can be frustrating, and some turn to over the counter sleep remedies while others obtain prescriptions for sleep aids. As always, it’s important to consult with your health care practitioner when you are considering new products, including CBD.
CBD may be a great holistic alternative to aid in a restful night’s sleep. One scientific study has shown that cannabidiol (CBD) may hold benefits in providing a calming effect to the central nervous system and providing for a more restful night’s sleep.
While CBD has many applications, there is a lot of anecdotal evidence that suggests that CBD has often been used to address stress for those who struggle with falling asleep and staying asleep. There are a few different forms you can consider when taking CBD to help with sleep.
- CBD Tinctures – the most popular form is a liquid that can be taken by placing drops under the tongue. Anecdotal evidence suggests that taking CBD tinctures one hour before bed may improve sleep and promote a full, uninterrupted night of sleep.
- CBD Gummies – another popular form of CBD in an edible “candy” that contains cannabidiol (CBD). Popular because of its discreet and easy way to ingest CBD. Anecdotal evidence suggests that CBD gummies with the perfect blend of ingredients for aid in healthy sleep are another great way to promote quality sleep.
For both methods of taking CBD listed above (tinctures and gummies), High Falls Hemp NY has crafted a blend of CBD with our proprietary blend of terpenes which are described as “Relax/Restore” formulated to promote what the name says: relax and restore.
Another important factor in self-care is having a positive mindset. The Mayo Clinic claims there are many health benefits to positive thinking. It can increase life span, lower rates of depression, lower levels of distress, greater resistance to the common cold, and better physical and psychological well-being.
There are many studies that focus on the potential benefits of CBD for stress and we are eager to see more to come that reinforce these benefits. There has been tremendous interest in the potential benefits of CBD as a way to address stress. One study suggests that CBD may be an option for stress relief. There is a lot of anecdotal evidence that suggests that CBD as a natural, plant-based wellness alternative may be a product to consider when addressing stress. If you are considering CBD for stress, there are many forms for you to consider. It’s important to find what works best for you, which will come with your own self-guided program
Taking care of our body is also an essential element of self-care. That means the inside and outside. There are many skin care products infused with CBD being offered today that claim that those products help with acne, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, moisturizing skin, and soothing muscles and joints from discomfort.
It’s important to note that there are many misleading health claims about how CBD-infused products can treat skin issues. None of the claims made have been proven and research is still in its early stages.
There are many findings that suggest that CBD may hold promise for treating some skin challenges. The American Academy of Dermatology has done some preliminary research and its findings suggest that CBD holds some promise in treating some skin conditions. As always, consult with your physician or dermatologist before using CBD-infused products.
When approved by your doctor or clinician, It’s important to select products from a trusted leader in manufacturing CBD products.
The 9 things you need to make sure that the CBD product you are considering is:
- Triple lab tested by a 3rd party independent and certified lab for safety, compliance, and potency
- Each product has a QR code so you can easily access the lab report
- Provides full panel lab reports for your easy reference
- Clearly lists all ingredients in the product
- Offers a 30-day risk-free trial to represent how they stand by their products and support consumers
- Products are from CBD hemp grown on their farm
- Is proudly grown in the USA
- Is vegan, gluten-free, no GMO’s and cruelty-free
- Has reviews from customers verifying that the product does what one would hope, and that customer service is great.
There is a combination of factors that impact our skin - environmental conditions, age, and everyday wear and tear.
CBD infused lotion may be something you wish to consider and the great part about that is that it does double-duty in rejuvenating your skin as the CBD may also alleviate discomfort in muscles and joints.
And, if you are like us, our lips are often overlooked but preemptively caring for them as they serve on the front line of our body daily, you may want to consider trying CBD-infused lip balm. A great way to nourish your lips and protect them from harsh environmental conditions and eliminate cracking and dry lips.
Music to my Ears
Another element you should consider incorporating into your wellness plans for the new year is music.
Music is like “grandma’s chicken soup for your soul” and supports health. According toJohns Hopkins, keeping your brain engaged during the aging process can be achieved by listening to music. It gives your brain a workout. Their research shows that music can reduce stress levels, blood pressure, discomfort, and help in improving mood. Put together a playlist with different genres for different moods to benefit your soul.Live Well
