Make CBD Part of Your Routine

Telic Thoughts - Wed, 2019-10-30 20:59

CBD is one of the hottest new trends in the wellness world, and though studies of its medical efficacy are in the early stages, the indications are that there is some real basis for its reputation. The study that really opened the door to allow CBD onto the high street and into the medical establishment was WHO’s report which found no evidence that CBD could form addictive pathways in the brain.

While there are no decisive studies into the use or effectiveness of CBD products, initial reports and anecdotal evidence indicates that it can helpful for managing chronic pain, dealing with low mood, depression and anxiety and helping to promote deep, healthy sleep if you suffer from insomnia.

One of the main advantages of CBD – other than its lack of addiction and side effects – is that it’s available in several different forms, allowing to you to adapt it to your lifestyle and find the right way to take the right dosage for you.

Tea

CBD tea bags (and coffee) can be a good way to ensure you get a regular dose of the compound if you’re trying to use it to manage a chronic condition. Other methods give the compound a greater bio-availability, which is to say it lets absorb more of it faster.

If you regularly have a hot drink at intervals throughout the day, replacing one of more with a CBD tea bag can get you a dose as part of your regular routine.

Edibles

Similar to tea bags, there are a range of CBD edibles that can seamlessly take the place of snacks and sweets you might ordinarily consume throughout the day. The most common form that edible CBD products take are gummies – jelly sweets infused with the compound, though chocolates are also available.

The advantage here is that the gummies can disguise the characteristic taste of CBD – which not everyone adores – and you can also easily give yourself a custom dose by changing the amount you eat.

CBD Oil

The most common way of taking CBD is in the form of a tincture made from oil infused with the compound. You can add the tincture to hot drinks to make your own CBD tea (though make sure you add milk as the chemical isn’t very soluble in water. Adding a fat helps you absorb more) or drop it under your tongue, which is known as taking it ‘sublingually’.

You can also get capsules containing a dose of CBD oil. These are the most ‘medicine-like’ of the ways you can take CBD, and are best if you are trying to manage an acute condition, rather than an ongoing, chronic one. Incorporating these into your lifestyle requires real planning, rather than the seamless substitution you might be looking for.

Healthy Habits That Can Slow the Aging Process

Telic Thoughts - Tue, 2019-10-29 15:37

Aging is something that happens to everyone, and it can impact your appearance in a number of ways. From wrinkles to dark spots, the physical effects of aging are inevitable and often undesired. While you may not be able to stop yourself from growing older, there are simple steps you can take to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of aging on your skin. Here are some key healthy habits that you can adopt to start slowing the aging process and achieve a healthy, youthful complexion.

Wear Sunscreen

The powerful UV rays from the sun can have many damaging effects on your complexion. Each time you expose yourself to sunlight without any proper protection, you’re putting your skin in great danger. Not only can the sun damage your appearance, but it also puts you at a higher risk of developing skin cancer and other serious illnesses. Wearing sunscreen is a crucial aspect of maintaining healthy and youthful skin. However, don’t just apply the product on bright, sunny days. You should be wearing sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 every single day to keep your skin properly shielded from the sun.

Maintain a Healthy Weight

Everyone has a different ideal weight that depends on factors such as height, genetic background, metabolic rate and activity level. It’s important to know what is considered a healthy weight for your body type and lifestyle. Maintaining an unhealthy weight can lead to complications such as joint pain, high cholesterol and an increased risk of diabetes. By keeping up an active lifestyle and taking ipamorelin, you can maintain a weight that helps you feel better and look younger.

Change Your Diet

While superficial changes like wearing enough sunscreen are vital, you should also make an effort to take care of your body from within in order to achieve the results you want. Eating foods that are high in sugar and trans fats can harm your skin in the long run and cause you to appear older. By consuming large amounts of sugar, you damage your skin’s collagen, which are proteins that boost skin elasticity and firmness. Similarly, foods that contain trans fats can cause wrinkles and lead to premature aging. It’s also a good idea to avoid processed meats and salty foods to maintain young-looking skin.

Exercise Regularly

As it turns out, all of the good things you heard about exercise are true. Engaging in activities that get your heart pumping is not only essential to good health, but it also has the power to mute the effects of the aging process. Regular exercise can strengthen your muscles, reduce the risk of illness and help you maintain a healthy weight. All of these effects can help you feel younger, which in turn allows you to appear younger as well. Whether you go for a run or join a spin class, the impact of exercise on your health and appearance is priceless.

Maintaining a youthful appearance can be an attainable goal with the help of these simple lifestyle changes. Not only can they help you look better, but they can also cause you to feel better than you ever did.
