Using CBD to Jumpstart Your Wellness Journey in the New Year

Another New Year is quickly approaching, and with it comes excitement for what lies ahead — the promise of new beginnings.  For many of us, the New Year is a special time for self-reflection, for creating goals and forging new plans to enhance our lives in different ways, including boosting health and wellness. For some of us, that brings a sense of apprehension, as making enacting can feel overwhelming. Wherever you are in your personal wellness journey, we understand that it can be challenging to want to make improvements, but not know where to begin. 

As you know, we are incredibly passionate about CBD’s amazing potential to elevate holistic wellness. Our mission is to improve the health and wellness of our customers, our community, and the planet as a whole. We do this by providing the highest quality CBD products, to empower you with the tools you need to live your best life.   

So, as we enter this new year brimming with both excitement and uncertainty, we’d like to discuss some ways that you can jumpstart your mind and body with the powers of CBD. 

Read on to learn ways to incorporate CBD into your wellness routine in the New Year to make 2022 the best year yet!

Starting your Wellness Journey in the New Year

As you turn your focus to well-being, it is important to begin from a place of understanding and acceptance, and to meet yourself where you are at the present moment. Keep in mind that even the smallest changes lead to tremendous growth, when practiced over time. 

Here at River Organics, we know firsthand the magic that can emerge from a seedling when it is properly nurtured. And so you, too, can become empowered with the right tools to sow the seeds of your personal growth on your wellness journey towards a new level of well-being.

Achieve Holistic Wellness with CBD 

At River Organics, our focus is on enhancing health and wellness in a way that takes your whole being into account —  mental, physical and emotional.  One can only experience true wellness when the mind, body and spirit are in balance. 

CBD can be incredibly helpful with bringing you closer to realizing this balance. Our full spectrum USDA organic CBD products are designed to augment your body's defenses to elevate overall health. As CBD interacts with our body’s own endocannabinoid system, it encourages a state of balance and amplifies our defenses to support wellness.

Center Your Mind and Find Your Calm

Many of us struggle with various forms of stress, tension and anxiety in our day-to-day lives. The new year is a great time to take a moment to reflect, reassess, and reset your mindset, and give yourself a boost towards a healthy psyche. Learning the practice of mindfulness, and committing to practicing regularly, can help you reorient your spirit in a new direction towards enhanced well-being. 
Studies have indicated CBD’s promise as an agent of improving anxiety and mood disorders. Incorporating CBD into your daily routine is a wonderful way to enhance your psychological wellness to bring your mind into a state of equilibrium, encourage relaxation, help relieve anxiety, as well as enhance mental clarity.

 

Become in Tune With Your Body’s Needs

At the start of a new year, we often make resolutions to improve our physical health, but various stressors and our busy lives get in the way quickly. Many of us contend with chronic forms of stress and pain that can hinder our bodies from peak functioning.

Give your body a head start to feel your best, and help lead you to achieving your potential in 2022. Two effective methods for helping to manage mental and emotional stress and reduce pain and inflammation are CBD tinctures and CBD topicals. 

CBD tinctures are extremely versatile, fast-acting, long-lasting, and yield the most potent results when taken sublingually, as they quickly activate in the bloodstream, while bypassing the digestive system. 

CBD topicals are also a great choice to have on hand to target pain. Featuring a combination of plant-powered ingredients, including coconut oil, hemp seed and jojoba oil, our topicals help alleviate sore joints and tight muscles. CBD topical products are best to use when targeting an area of inflammation and to aid in muscle recovery, by activating receptors in the skin and surrounding tissue. 

Cannabinoids tend to have a low permeability when used on their own, but when coupled with a carrier or essential oil, the CBD can penetrate deeper into the muscle layers, optimizing its benefits to the targeted joint and/or muscle. This is why we have formulated our topical oils with jojoba oil, as it has remarkably similar properties to our own skin’s sebum, allowing it to penetrate deeply, providing potent pain relief beyond the surface of your skin.

For those extra painful spots, our Extra Strength Pain Relief Oil with Arnica offers more potent relief to soothe pain, tension and soreness. We like to refer to it as “Magic Oil,” for its incredible ability to act as an all-purpose balm to reduce inflammation.  

Many people find optimal results by doubling down on their symptoms, and take CBD orally, as well as using it topically.  With River Organics, it is easy to find ways to incorporate CBD into your daily schedule. From CBD tinctures you take sublingually (under-the-tongue), to topicals you roll on at particularly stressful times of the day, or perhaps as part of your evening wind-down routine with a bit of CBD-infused wine with dinner, you’re sure to find an option that will best suit your needs. 

Nurture From Within 

As we know, how we look and feel depends tremendously on what we put into our bodies. The food and beverages we take in are our fuel. As we look ahead to the New Year, take a moment to ask yourself these questions to determine if you are treating your body properly: Are you getting enough of the right nutrients your body needs? Are you keeping yourself hydrated? It’s vital to listen to your body and nurture it accordingly, to support optimal health. 

Amplify your efforts towards nutritional wellness by incorporating CBD in your cooking. Infusing CBD into your favorite recipes is an easy and fun way to implement CBD into your routine, and to share its amazing  benefits with your loved ones!  We have tried to make this practice a little simpler by sharing some of our favorite recipes with you.  Keep checking back for more, as we will be adding them regularly.  

Here at River Organics, it is our passion and happiness to help nurture your personal growth along your wellness journey. As this year closes, we hope you can find a sense of calm and balance in body, mind and spirit - and we’ll be here doing our part to support you in it! Few things make us more gratified than seeing our customers on paths towards self-improvement and true wellness, while knowing we are playing our small part in helping you get there.

Have a wonderful, safe, and peaceful holiday season and may you all find wellness in the New Year!
