7 Ways to Use CBD and Self-Care Practices to Treat Pain and Anxiety.

When you’re dealing with pain and anxiety, it can be incredibly difficult dealing with your day-to-day life. Even the simplest of tasks can feel intimidating and hard to overcome. Luckily, there are ways to mitigate the effects of pain and anxiety so you can accomplish your to-do list and be successful. Below, we’ve put together some ways to use CBD and self-care practices to treat pain and anxiety.

1. Make Sure You Sleep
Not getting enough sleep can put you on the fast track to pain, anxiety, and grumpiness. When you don’t obtain quality sleep, your brain and body can’t function at normal levels. A lack of sleep can also impact your ability to remember things, your overall frustration tolerance, and even your hunger levels.

If you haven’t been sleeping well, you should consider CBD gummies with helpful additions like melatonin. CBD gummies can help you feel relaxed and help ebb away any pains you’re dealing with. Besides CBD gummies, you can also practice good sleep hygiene at night. Keep these tips in mind to sleep better and longer:
  • Only use your bedroom for sleep
  • Stop using your phone and watching TV at least two hours before bedtime
  • Avoid caffeine and other stimulants at least 6 hours before bedtime
  • Don’t drink alcohol before bed
  • Consider taking a warm bath as part of your bedtime ritual
  • Burn relaxing incense while reading a favorite book
2. Consider Gentle Yoga Exercise
High-impact exercises are great for your cardiovascular fitness, but they can be a little too much for your body if you’re in any kind of pain. Instead, focus on low impact exercises that don’t exacerbate your symptoms of discomfort. Yoga is a great way to unwind and relax. Gentle stretching provides many benefits to your body and can have a calming effect on the mind.

3. Try Alternating Warm and Cold Treatment
If you’re dealing with a lingering injury, you might want to try alternating cold and hot treatments. This can help flush out waste from your blood stream and quell inflammation in the body. Just make sure you keep both your hot and cold time periods short, so you don’t injure your skin with burns.

4. Pay Attention to Your Food
Nutrition can have both a positive effect or negative effect on the mind and body. If you eat processed foods with lots of sugar and salt, that can actually result in a negative mood. Although a treat here and there won’t make a huge impact, you should focus your diet on whole foods with minimal processing. Fruits, veggies, and grass-fed meat can provide your body with the nutrients necessary to feel at your best.

5. Find a Supportive Community
Whether you’re dealing with chronic pain or anxiety, it can feel incredibly isolating if you’re dealing with it alone. Luckily, there are supportive communities all over the internet and in real-life. You can search places like Meetup.com, Facebook groups, and even subreddits to find like-minded people going through similar situations.

6. Reach Out to Friends and Family
Your friends and family should be another channel of support for you if you’re dealing with long-term pain and anxiety. Although many people can’t visit in person due to the coronavirus pandemic, you can schedule regular Zoom or FaceTime meetings with your loved ones. These social connections can help you feel more grounded and provide a measure of happiness.

7. Consider Adopting a Pet
One of the best decisions you can make is adopting an animal from an animal shelter. If you don’t feel like you have capacity to take care of a dog that requires regular walking and might be high-energy, you can opt for a cat or bunny. A fuzzy friend can help you with your anxiety and pain. Plus, who can be sad when there’s a wagging tail or purring buddy around?

Conclusion: Dealing with Pain and Anxiety 
When you’re not feeling your best, it can be hard to be optimistic or look forward to anything happening in the future. But, if you practice taking care of yourself with proper sleep, exercise, and nutrition, you can begin feeling better. Don’t forget, you’re never alone – just reach out to your support system when you need it.
