The world has seemingly been turned upside down by the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and the deaths associated with COVID-19. With so much uncertainty, many people are worried about the future. People are as worried about tomorrow, next week, and next month as they are next year.
There are many people hoarding food and other items, like the infamous toilet paper shortages everywhere. People are worried that the virus might affect themselves or their family, especially those caring for the very young, the elderly, or those with certain medical conditions. Many are out of work, whether temporary or permanent, and are struggling financially.
While Americans tend to have high stress and anxiety levels anyway, this just exacerbates the problem and brings everyone’s stress even higher. So, what can you do?
Living an overall healthy life can naturally make your body more resistant to stress and anxiety. This means eating healthy foods, exercising, and finding ways to manage stress, like mindfulness, yoga, or other hobbies you enjoy. Even journaling can help. You don’t have to make drastic changes today, but small steps, like adding one fruit and vegetable for dinner or doing lunges and stretching 3 days a week, can get you started in the right direction.
CBD can be complementary to these lifestyle changes to help you fight stress and anxiety while tackling your day with a sense of calm. The benefits of CBD are many and fighting cortisol is one of the main ones associated with stress and anxiety.
Cortisol is known as the stress hormone. Occasional stress is ok,but long term stress and elevated cortisol can be detrimental to your health. This can negatively affect your mood, digestion, sleep, weight, memory, libido, and more. CBD is thought to boost your defense to everyday stressors and reduce cortisol. Cortisol is also known to be exceptionally high in those with anxiety disorders.
