I'm a 36-year-old mom to a toddler who hasn't slept or felt relaxed since giving birth two years ago. For most of my life, I've had general anxiety caused by seemingly nothing but the daily happenings of life that bring each of us a bit of...well...panic and anxiety. As you might imagine, the pandemic hasn't been great for my mental state.
For a number of years I was able to mostly control my anxiety with diet and exercise but after becoming a mom and juggling parenting and running a business full time I needed something new to help me feel grounded and clear-headed. It is worth noting that I am the least adventurous person you have ever met when it comes to trying new things. I've never been someone who enjoys wine or cocktails to wind down and instead I opt for getting outside or having a cup of tea. I tried meditating. That was a hard fail for me. But CBD has changed my life.
CBD in the morning...and at night
Nowadays, I use 30 MG CBD for clarity during my workday as much as to help me sleep at night. (I take 100 MG about 30-40 minutes before I want to pass out.) Before taking CBD I has restless nights of sleep followed by foggy-headed mornings and a feeling that I couldn't quite do anything to feel grounded. When I take CBD I feel like a better version of myself. My head is clear, I feel mentally grounded, and my personal resources and energy levels are restored. My anxiety levels plummet and I don't notice the usual angst that accompanies me through the day.
It's worth noting that I was a skeptic and it took a lot of convincing for me to try CBD in the first place. I use Feals because I know they're harvested in line with organic farming practices and lab-tested for pesticides and mycotoxins.
Patience and some trial-and-error
As a mom, trying to do it all, and in the middle of a pandemic, this year I've slowly figured out (through a lot of trial and error) what works for me. When I first gave birth to my daughter, I wish I’d put more emphasis on finding ways to take care of myself through the stresses of parenting.
I had no idea how helpful CBD would be for my anxiety and sleep. Now with regular CBD use, it’s clear I can’t live without my Feals. In fact, can’t imagine going back to a life without it.
