The New Year is an opportunity to start over. Here’s how you can use it to reboot your relationship with marijuana.
The New Year is a chance to start over. While they may turn stressful, New Year’s resolutions can be used to your advantage, as long as you set some realistic expectations. They also don’t have to be something that causes you stress, like losing a certain amount of weight or accomplishing a career-related goal. Your resolution can be a simple one, like getting more joy out of every joint you smoke.
No matter your objectives, resolutions should be done in a way that makes you happy and fulfilled. They should never add extra stress to your life, or make you feel like you’re failing at something. For those trying to get more enjoyment out of their marijuana use, or simply looking to change their relationship with marijuana, here are some healthy ideas:
Make a smoking schedule
A schedule can help you smoke more or less, depending on your needs. Now that a lot of people are working from home indefinitely, smoking can quickly transform into everyday activity, a habit that is easy to form but difficult to break. While this works for some, the majority of people need stretches of time where they’re sober in order to work and be productive.
Try new things
Another addition to your New Year’s resolution can be to try new things, whether that means new hobbies or new ways to smoke weed. Try making some edibles or purchasing a type that you’ve never had before, or a strain recommended by your budtender that you’ve yet to try. These new experiences can result in great memories and new ways of adding some spice in your life.
Pair smoking with other activities
People are creatures of habit, forming their rituals and schedules without knowing that they’re doing them. While habits are great and should be encouraged, it’s nice to try something different now and then. Switch up your smoking routine by pairing it with new activities, making it into a compliment instead of the main activity that you’re focusing on. Smoke some weed and go for a walk, or smoke right before a workout and see what happens.
Try sugar-free edibles
For those people who usually get high with edibles, considering sugar-free options could be something worth pursuing. Small edibles can pack large amounts of sugar, especially if they’re trying to disguise weedy flavor. Incorporate the habit of reading the product label and pursue some sugar-free options, especially if you consume these several times a week.
Take tolerance breaks
Knowing the importance of a tolerance break can help you restart your relationship with marijuana. It can also help you save some money in the long run, allowing you to smoke less and get more high once you rid your body of the remainders of THC. To help you get started, here are some Expert Tips On Taking A Marijuana Tolerance Break.
Try going on more walks next year
A habit people picked up on the pandemic, and has proved to be very useful, is daily or weekly walks. Walks are great for clearing your mind, whether you’re bored, feeling stuck at work, or experiencing some stress and frustration, a walk is a good option. If you add weed in the mix, that’s even better, providing you with some perspective and also creating a new and different opportunity to smoke weed that isn’t all about getting high.
Know your limits
A helpful approach to cannabis this year could be to know and learn your limits when it comes to your weed use. While smoking weed can be a great experience, what matters most is to keep a healthy relationship with it, one where you reap the benefits of it without relying on the drug for fun or any other reason. Exploring and deepening your relationship with marijuana is a positive thing, one that can help you understand what works for you and what doesn’t.
