It’s important to realise that wellness rituals are so much more than a luxury – they can play an essential part of setting mind and body up for a positive and productive day, particularly when you involve CBD oil. By taking this holistic approach, you will support your endocannabinoid system to help maintain balance in all areas of life. Then, with stress diminished, focus upped and niggles soothed, you’ll be far better placed to get the most out of yourself, in both work and play.
Sticking to a daily ritual can also help you be consistent with taking your CBD (which is vitally important if you want it to work!). What’s more, giving yourself even just a short time each day to collect your thoughts, release any tension and position yourself into a joyful and grateful mind-set can also go a long way in transforming your emotional and physical health. In fact, this sort of practice is thought to be so effective at easing a range of concerns that many doctors are now prescribing meditation, gardening and mindfulness as first line therapies, ahead of anti-depressants.
Ready to create your own CBD ritual? Here are a couple of mindful activities for you to try at home, alongside your daily dose:
Mindful CBD Ritual: Learn a Craft

Repetitive motions or thought processes that provides enough of a challenge to keep you focused, but not so much that it’s stressful, is the Goldilocks Zone when it comes to ‘active’ brain downtime. Giving your mind a chance to process thoughts in this way has been shown to have a huge, positive impact on mental health.
There are plenty of crafts that meet this criteria, knitting being one of the most favoured. If you’ve not tried it, don’t knock it! Taking a few drops of CBD before clacking away with knitting needles is extremely relaxing, and satisfying too.
The key here is paying attention to how you feel when doing a crossword. If you find playing these games calming, this could be the perfect downtime choice. If you find them too strenuous, steer clear – you’d be better off slipping off into a daydream instead (another way to access DBN!).
Taking CBD oil may have the potential to further enhance your focus in both of these activities, and beyond!
