Tips on Coping with the “New Normal”

Posted by Zero Friction Marketing on Jun 1st 2020

Being stressed is something that we may experience from time to time. However, unforeseen circumstances can occur, and learning to cope with these situations can help get you through tough times more effectively. You may be dealing with anxiety, difficulty concentrating, or sleepless nights. What can be done as the shelter-in-place orders begin to lift and businesses start opening again? There are a few simple techniques and routines you can try to help cope with the “new normal.”

1.  Take care of yourself!

Taking care of yourself is one of the best ways to cope with the stress and anxiety of getting back to the new normal. Some of the most common ways you can practice self-care is by meditating, doing yoga, taking a hot bath, or trying CBD. While these are just a few ways we like to practice self-care, you might have your own regimens as well. Nonetheless, it’s crucial not to forget to dedicate a few moments during each day to yourself. At times, we can get so caught up with taking care of others around us that we forget to take care of our own mental and physical health.

At Doc Patels, our favorite combination of self-care includes meditation, yoga, and CBD. Yoga is very much a mind-body practice that involves controlled breathing with physical poses. Overall, studies have shown that yoga has helped with stress and anxiety reduction. We like to take things a step further when doing yoga by taking CBD. Taking CBD before yoga gives you more flexibility and calmness that helps you prepare for your yoga session. CBD helps the muscles relax, helping with yoga poses and flexibility. We recommend giving CBD a try if you haven’t tried CBD before yoga it is worth the try!

Similar to yoga, taking CBD before meditation is another great option to help put your mind at ease. If you are feeling stress that is hindering your ability to sleep properly, whether you may be waking up in the middle of the night or you can’t fall asleep at all, then meditation and CBD is something that might work for you!

2.  Stay Connected

Another way to cope with the stress and anxiety of the new normal is by staying connected. States are reopening, and while we’re expected to keep up with social distancing and wear protective gear, there are many ways to stay connected with those around us. Sharing your feelings with loved ones gives you the ability to relate and release any tension you might be experiencing.

Overall, all of us need to cope with different life stressors on a daily basis. If you or someone you know is experiencing lack of sleep due to anxiety or any other quarantine related stress, we encourage you to schedule a one on one consultation to see if CBD is something that could help you cope with the “new normal.”
