New year – New You

happy times, mind hacking

New year is one of my favourite times of the year. It’s like we get to start a fresh and get our teeth stuck into new things, New people to meet, New experiences to have. We have this optimistic view that everything is suddenly going to change and we are going to transform into this new shinier version of ourselves.

Well at least that’s how I view New Year. And even if it doesn’t last I think it’s a great way to start the year. This year I started with a clear head (no hangover) fresh as a daisy, start as I mean to go on. I’ve got my plans and goals and am hoping to achieve them all. I do have more motivation this year than any other. Turning 40..eek.. and still so much I want to do.

Here is a few that may inspire you

Learn a new language.

Been learning spanish for the last 20 years..on and off.. I’m now fluent in Spanglish.. and only I can understand me. .

I realized learning a language is a whole new skill altogether and the process of acquainting with a new language and culture is a totally a mind-opening experience.

Pick up a new hobby.

Beyond just your usual favorite hobbies, is there something new you can pick up? Any new sport you can learn?

Examples are fencing, golf, rock climbing, football, canoeing, or ice skating.

Your new hobby can also be a recreational hobby. For example, pottery, Italian cooking, dancing, wine appreciation, web design, etc.

Learning something new requires you to stretch yourself in different aspects, whether physically, mentally or spiritually

Take up a new course.

Is there any new course you can join? Courses are a great way to gain new knowledge and skills.

It doesn’t have to be a long-term course – seminars or workshops serve their purpose too.

I’ve been to a few workshops and they have helped me gain new insights which I had not considered before.

I love Udemy courses and I’m now on my 15th. They are fun, cheap and a fab way to learn just about anything.

Create an inspirational room.

Your environment sets the mood and tone for you. If you are living in an inspirational environment, you are going to be inspired every day.

Minimise

So I have been on this journey for the last year or so. It is actually harder than just chucking your wordly goods out. Especially with a family, but it feels amazing and cuts cleaning by more than half and saves me a tonne of time deciding what to wear or searching through a pile of junk to find a bloody bobble. I now have places for everything…. well almost everything.

I have a tonne of other things I want to do this year, climb some munroes, go on a meditation course, take some amazing photos of some wild animals, do more yoga, laugh more, lighten up, volunteer with animals, my list goes on and on.

Right I must go as one of my resolutions was to spend less time on the Internet.

CBD Testimonials

The mind

There is so many CBD oils out there, I have listed the few that my family and clients take in my cbd blog and store and have wonderful results from the ones in which I take.  There is different strengths of oils depending on what you may need it for.   Below are just a tiny few examples of real life people with real life results from taking cbd products.

I was worried CBD oil would make me feel “high” so I put off trying it for years. Now I wish I had used it sooner. It has been a great addition to my regiment of supplements I take for good mental health. Life feels lighter and brighter. I love, love, love it!!!

CBDPure has improved my son’s life in ways I couldn’t have previously fathomed. His overall well-being is truly an answer to our prayers.

Dr Joe Dispenza Guided Meditation

meditation

The purpose of meditation is to slow down your brain waves and get beyond the thinking, analytical mind. What I want you to understand is that you already know how to do this, because you do it every day.

If you can begin your practice with the understanding that all you’re doing is relaxing your body (just like when you’re falling asleep) while keeping your mind conscious and awake—and if you can continuously move deeper into this state of relaxation while focusing on nothing (or not thinking)—you’ve just opened the doorway between the conscious and subconscious mind.

Athlete’s and CBD Oil.

Uncategorized

While using cannabis as pre-workout supplement may sound crazy, it is not uncommon for elite athletes to use cannabis as a recovery tool as well. After an intense workout or training session, you may be tired, sore, or even nauseous. Many people in this situation may toss back two or three Ibuprofen, crack a beer to take the edge off and call it good. However, what you may not realize is that NSAID drugs like Ibuprofen and Aleve are extremely dangerous, especially when used with regularity. If deaths from the toxic effects of NSAID drugs were tabulated separately, these drug toxicities would constitute the 15th most common cause of death in the United States. Therefore, we suggest athletes stick to a more powerful, less toxic, and naturally occurring substance like cannabis. In this guide, we will help you understand the benefits of cannabis as a recovery tool and how to garner these benefits in your own post-workout regimen.

Nutrition helps post-workout recovery

Protein

In order to produce our own proteins, we must consume proteins. Protein supplementation, both pre- and post-workout, generally improves recovery, muscle growth and strength2. However, specific amounts and types of protein can promote greater improvements in physical fitness. For example, drinking milk after a workout can promote increases in muscle size and strength while decreasing body fat. To be more specific, the amino acid known as leucine, particularly a dose of 3-4 grams, can promote maximum muscle gain. However, fast-acting carbohydrates such as glucose are needed because the release of insulin that follows carbohydrate intake promotes tissue growth.

Carbs

Carbohydrate intake after intense exercise3 is also essential in order to replenish stores of energy that may have been exhausted, preferably within one hour after finishing. Of course, rehydration should never be overlooked after intense exercise. This includes both water and electrolytes such as sodium, which reduce urine losses and are needed for cellular functions, but are lost in significant amounts through sweat. Approximately 25-50% more water than what has been lost through sweat is required for proper rehydration, and this should be taken within 4-6
hours after exercise.

Post-Workout Recovery Tips using Hemp & Cannabidiol

But where can hemp and cannabinoids play a role in post-exercise recovery? Some cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol (CBD), have been shown to possess antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and painkilling (analgesic) effects. This is relevant because strenuous exercise increases oxidative stress4 and therefore inflammation, while moderate antioxidant supplementation may reduce the damage. In pre-clinical research, CBD was found to be a stronger antioxidant than vitamin C or E5, able to protect cells against damage caused by reactive oxygen molecules. However, isolated CBD has been found to only exert anti-inflammatory and painkilling effects in a limited dose range6.

In fact, another cannabinoid known as cannabigerol7 (CBG) has been shown to reduce inflammatory markers and increase levels of one of the body’s own antioxidants, superoxide dismutase.

Besides the cannabinoids, terpenoids8 present in hemp extracts also possess anti-inflammatory and analgesic abilities. Additionally, the terpenoid myrcene is recognised as a sleep aid and may be a muscle relaxant, which could help athletes rest after intensive exercise. Alpha-pinene has been found to help dilate (widen) airways, which may increase oxygen supply and therefore aid clearance of lactic acid and tissue repair. However, while whole hemp extracts look like a promising aid to post-exercise recovery, they should be used alongside standard recommendations of rest, rehydration and nutrition.

CBD oil for Menopause and PMT

CBD OIL FOR HORMONES

There are cannabinoid receptors in all areas of the female reproductive organs, including both the CB1 and CB2 receptors. Given what we already know about CBD’s influence over these receptors, it’s a logical assumption to believe that CBD could help reduce the signs and symptoms of menopause through interaction in the highly concentrated areas of endocannabinoid receptors.

During menopause, women find it increasingly difficult to sleep. Hot flashes, mood swings and overall discomfort continually disrupt a healthy sleep cycle. Soon, this lack of sleep trickles down into other areas of a woman’s life and eventually increases the severity of all menopausal symptoms.

There is a growing body of research indicating that both CBD, THC and other cannabinoids are beneficial for improved sleep quality. While CBD itself may trigger a mild increase in wakefulness when taken before bed, CBD still facilitates a better and longer nights rest.

Bone Density Loss

Bone density naturally starts to decrease during menopause. In some circumstances, it can lead to future issues with osteoporosis and bone fragility. It’s common for doctors to prescribe ERT simply for the possible improvements to bone density. But, as we’ve discussed, ERT is not always a perfect long-term solution.

Cannabidiol, THCV, CBG, and CBC all are potential candidates for protecting against bone loss. In fact, these specific cannabinoids are known to stimulate bone growth. Cannabidiol, among the other cannabinoids, may represent a perfect alternative to ERT therapy for those women worried about bone density loss.

Mood Stabilizer

Alongside the inevitable hot flashes, the associated menopausal mood swings are an equally taxing part of hormonal changes. As hormones change, it changes the way women process and manage their stress levels. A woman’s body continues to operate as per usual, but with an endocannabinoid deficiency. Its suddenly not as easy to process stress, anger, and daily pressures.

Thankfully, cannabinoids are already making incredible inroads as a powerful replacement to traditional SSRI drugs. It’s a logical next step to bring the mood stabilizing capabilities of CBD, already evidenced for treating depression and anxiety, into the realm of menopausal women.

CBD OIL DOSAGE

CHILDREN AND CBD

So you get your cbd oils and there is no instruction and you don’t have a clue what your doing?? Firstly you can ask the company to send you out their own dosage advice or the person you bought from should hold information to help you.

I personally find that starting of low is the best way to go and work your way up until you feel the benefits.

There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to determining the “right” CBD dosage. The effective dose for each person is different based on body chemistry, severity of concern, weight, concentration of the product, etc. One or two drops may be effective for one person but another person may need several drops of the same product.

Below is a chart that may help determine the amount of cbd in mg that you may need per day.

Once you work this out then have input your details into the online cbd oil calculator and this may help you determine the suitable dosage for yourself. Just bare in mind that we all feel things in different ways so take it slow, increase as desired and relax. Some people may notice benefits in a few short weeks others takes a few months so stick with it.

Our CBD dosage calculator can help you calculate total drops, milligrams of CBD per drop and number of drops necessary to achieve your desired CBD oil dosage.
