At Canna Relief, we’re more than happy to help our customers improve their wellness! Here are some tips to consider as we welcome in the New Year:
- Add movement to your routine: Especially as we mature, exercise is necessary for positive physical and mental health. In fact, according to researchers from New Zealand, “bone retains a “memory” of exercise’s effects long after the exercise is ceased, and this bone memory continues to change the way the body metabolizes a high-fat diet.”
- Get creative: Not only does a creative outlet encourage calmness, it can make you more productive! According to Psychology Today, University of San Francisco researchers learned that creativity is linked to enhanced job performance. So why not give singing or storytelling a try? ScienceDaily reported that being part of creative groups, like choirs or writers, can lead to beneficial effects in mental health.
- Reach out to long-lost friends: This year, try reconnecting with old friends you haven’t spoken to for awhile. Being surrounded by loved ones can improve your wellness in various ways. For instance, “Loneliness and social isolation are linked to around a 30 percent increased risk of having a stroke or developing coronary artery disease — the two leading causes of illness and death in high income countries…”
- Change your diet: What does your diet look like? Try eating nutrient-rich foods with your meals, such as nuts and hemp seeds. They’re laden with vitamins, minerals, and good fats. Plus, they can help lower your chances of forming heart disease or diabetes. Our educators recommend adding supplements, such as a multivitamin, to your daily nutrition. Think of supplements as “nutritional insurance” that ensure you’ve consumed your vitamins and minerals.
At Canna Relief, we carry various supplements, including multivitamins, iron, vitamin D, melatonin, and hemp seed oil. Check them out at our Streetsville location! Do you have any questions about using supplements or hemp products? Call us at 905-286-4420.
