What Can Cause Holiday Related Stress? What Does it Feel Like?
While the holiday season is known for bringing joy and cheer, it can also create added pressure on top of daily stressors. Stress is a normal reaction to changes in the environment or routines, but it’s important to keep it managed. There are a lot of expectations during the season which can often feel hard to meet. Traveling to visit loved ones includes financial outputs, navigating bustling airports or highways and possibly staying somewhere less comfortable than normal. Hosting gatherings requires planning, cooking, cleaning and shopping. Trying to find the perfect gift or shopping for a lot of people can get expensive and time consuming.
Mental and emotional stress can manifest into physical symptoms. The lack of time for self-care can have a real impact on you. According to Healthline, common holiday related stress symptoms include anxiety, sadness, headaches, body aches, trouble sleeping and irritability. Other factors, like the weather, can lead to disorders like seasonal depression. The Mayo Clinic estimates more than 3 million people are diagnosed with this each year, making it very common (2). While traditional treatments include prescription medication and psychotherapy, many are looking for natural approaches to support their overall well-being. A popular choice includes CBD or whole plant hemp oil.
What is CBD and how Does it Work?
CBD (cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid compound found in its highest concentrations in the hemp plant. It is non-psychoactive, meaning it doesn’t produce a “high.” This allows you to enjoy the benefits while having full control of your body and mind. Cannabidiol works with a physiological system in the body called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS works to create and maintain internal balance, or homeostasis, within the body. The ECS utilizes cannabinoids to fuel itself, interacting with two receptors: CB-1 and CB-2. Whole plant hemp oil contains CBD, as well as other advantageous cannabinoids. Some products include terpenes, which are the essential oils found in the hemp, to further boost support to the ECS.
