Better Homes and Gardens and CBD!

Better Homes and Gardens and CBD!

Emma Knox

     Better Homes and Gardens is one of the (if not the) most popular magazines in the nation. HGTV is one of the top-watched television channels in the nation. Everyone loves Chip and Jo, and Martha Stewart, and the fun of caring for things that are theirs. But–and those people will be the first to admit it to you–gardening and working on your home is a strain on your body, your energy, and your mind. It’s not simple work and it definitely isn’t work without consequences. But it’s beautiful. And it’s well worth it. Still yet, you can make it much easier on yourself by taking CBD.

     Let’s talk DEMO DAY. Anybody who’s seen Fixer Upper knows the toll demo takes on people’s bodies (watch the lifting and moving get harder on Chip with each season)… And the same goes for all home renovations or changes: they wear and tear your body, especially over years, and leave you struggling to get through otherwise easy movements. What’s more, the same goes for gardening! When you garden, you’re constantly bent over, pushing, pulling, weeding, the works, and your body doesn’t take kindly to the unrelenting work. If you love to garden, and to do home-based work, it’s more a passion than anything… So unless you’re incapacitated, you’ll likely continue; even if it’s painful, maybe severely. And that’s fine: continue! Do your passion! Live! But don’t do it in pain- CBD is an anti-inflammatory and by being so, can relieve your pain and keep you moving. Not to mention: it’s all-natural, so it was grown in a garden not unlike your own! If you take CBD, you can continue your “back-breaking work” without the “back-breaking” part. Or the “work” part, come to think of it, because without the pain, it doesn’t feel like work! It feels like love.

     If you have family, friends, or any kind of life, you need energy to get through the day. That’s nonnegotiable. But after hours of gardening or home efforts, you’re left exhausted and without the energy to do anything else. You order pizza instead of making dinner, watch reality shows instead of reading, take the easiest, least-work-required actions to endure the rest of the day… even though they aren’t good for you. You cancel plans with friends, dinners with your parents, stay at home when you aren’t working because you have nothing left to give. But all you’re doing is hurting yourself (and everyone around you). What you need is more energy! What you need is a steady burst! Not cola, not coffee, not five-hour-energy, but something healthy and beneficial in more ways than one! What you need is CBD. It can calm you, but energize you at the same time. It helps ease your body into equilibrium, a place where you have the best possible toolbox to get everything done and keep everyone happy (especially yourself). It can keep you consistently animated (but relaxed) for long stints of time without wearing you out. CBD is the answer to your lethargy outside the garden and home.

     And then, there’s arguably the most important aspect of you: your mind. Your feelings, your thoughts, your overall mental health. Although it’s often said that gardening and home improvement-type-work are good for the soul and mind, and is sometimes true, that doesn’t eliminate the mental fatigue and stress they bring. Gardens and plants are constant, unforgiving things that never stop their need. And there are times you don’t feel you have anything to give them, you don’t want to give them anything, you want a break- but since they’ll die elsewise, you’re forced to press on and continue your caretaking. It’s the same story with home improvements and work, always pressing and staring you in the face and needing to be completed. You have other chores, other people and things that need you, and these on top of everything can be overwhelming, stressful, the tension atop hundreds of others that breaks you. CBD can relieve some of that burden. Granted, it can’t water your plants for you or hoist your beams, but CBD can restore relaxation and calm to you; it can relieve your stress and anxiety and feelings of severe strain. Although your work can’t award you any breaks, CBD can. Mental breaks. Mental calm. Mental relief. The most important thing is you.

     There are masses of intricacies to home renovations and work, to gardening, but what matters most is you. You can’t do your best if you aren’t at your best. And to be at your best, keeping yourself at your peak abilities and self, you need CBD. We provide that to you… You + CBD = A Better Home & Garden.
