Why We Love Journaling: Self-Care Meets Self-Reflection
4 min read
When our team started using journals as part of our wellness resolutions for 2020, not only did the habit stick, but it also made us a little bit happier + more positive. It got us thinking about how journaling and a wellness ritual go together seamlessly. It didn't take long before we were reaching for our journals to jot down ideas that were too good to forget, starting our days with positive affirmations, or just comparing notes. We wanted to share that experience with our customers, and that’s why we’re so excited to be offering a fun and cheerful journal that you’ll actually want to use.
Take Note: Making Time For Yourself Matters
Every day is an opportunity for renewal, reflection, and change. In a way, so is each blank page of this journal. Begin your day by taking a quiet moment for reflection, and thinking about your goals. What are your priorities for that day going to be? When you take the time to set your intentions, you’re more likely to accomplish the tasks that your day entails. Think of giving yourself and your day a purpose as an act of self-respect. It may feel weird or even cheesy at first, but it’s an approach that can really change your mindset. When you think about your goals often, you’re more likely to accomplish them. It’s as simple as that.
Show Your Wellness Regimen Some Love
Finding your CBD sweet spot takes some time and attention, and we recommend gradually increasing your intake until you observe the benefits that you’re seeking. When it comes to making those observations, including a journal as part of your wellness ritual is a natural fit. If CBD is part of your morning routine, make note of your intake in the morning and follow up on how your day went when you reflect back at night. If CBD helps you unwind at night and get more restful sleep, record your intake before bed and follow up in the morning when you’re energized and alert. Your journal can be used as a tool to be mindful and observant in so many aspects of your life, and your CBD regimen is just the start.
