4 Ways CBD Can Help You Overcome The Sunday Scaries 

A bit of CBD self-care can calm you down and give you a clearer state of mind so you can start your week off on a more grounded note.

Each Sunday afternoon, it happens without fail: You are having a perfectly lovely weekend until you start to think about going back to work the next day. And it doesn’t matter whether you like your job or hate it, you may start to feel anxious or a sense of dread taking over your Sundays.  

The Sunday Scaries are real. In fact, many of us call in sick on Monday morning because we are so stressed about the thought of going back to school or work that week.

Don’t let the scaries take over your life! A bit of CBD self-care can calm you down and give you a clearer state of mind. Thanks to the relaxing effects of CBD, you can start your week off on a more grounded note. Here’s how to get started so you can reclaim your weekend.  

 Stay calm

As soon as you start to feel that anxiety and dread coming on, take a few CBD relax gummies or use a vaporizer pen. Your mind will instantly feel quieter so you can start to relax. Maybe even listen to some guided meditation. Remember, when we’re stressed, we tend to clench our jaws or hold in our breath. A few deep breaths can go a long way.   

Light some incense

Now that you’re feeling slightly more tranquil, take it a step further and light some CBD-infused incense. The smell will calm you more and allow you to focus. A lot of anxiety disorders often stem from not knowing what’s ahead, so start to write out a list of what you want to accomplish this week (personal or professional-wise.) If that stresses you out, you can alternatively think about a project you are looking forward to or a fun social event you are attending this week.  

Release tension

If you’re feeling stressed, you may start to notice more tightness and knots in your upper back, shoulders, or other parts of your body, too. (That’s where you are holding all your tension.) Draw yourself a warm bath and add in CBD bath salts. As you soak, your knots will release and you’ll feel the tension go somewhere far away.   

Rest easy

You may feel especially stressed as you try to fall asleep on Sundays. Or if you’re really anxious, start to even have nightmares about work. If you want to rest easy on these nights, try a few drops of CBD oil with lavender. (Lavender is known to help you sleep calmly and smells nice, too.) Or if you need more help falling asleep, a CBD sleep aid may do the trick.
