Wellbeing in the Workplace
A new year is here and everyone seems to be on the January bandwagon - Veganuary, no-meat Monday's and of course, the gyms are raking it in with new membership sign-ups! This is a great opportunity for us and will make a huge difference in people's personal wellbeing, making them feel better both physically and mentally for so many reasons. But alongside healthier cooking at home and all those miles on the treadmill, we still really need to consider our wellbeing in the workplace.

How do I become a gym bunny?
It has recently occurred to me that, although I am yet to turn 25, my body and I are not getting any younger. It’s time to start taking care of myself, and said body, for real this time. And by take care of myself, I don’t mean treat myself to whatever I want food or clothing wise, or to have a pamper night with (insert last months masks) once a week - because I do that anyway.

CBD: what’s the hype?

CBD. Cannabis. Hemp. A topical subject that is on-going for all industries. Its power is recognised, but the plant is often put in the media for negative influence. It’s time individuals really understood the potential benefits that the cannabis plant can offer to the human body. The negative stigma attached to Cannabis is just one reason the potential healing powers of CBD are being overlooked.

Understanding that the CBD element itself is a non-psychoactive extract from the cannabis plant is step one in gaining knowledge on how this little ingredient may change your life. The human body has natural receptors for cannabis extracts, making them work faster. Disclaimer: there is no THC in CBD products; you will not get a high effect.

The rise in CBD products has seen a 99% increase in the industry, nearly doubling 2019 figures. The calming, healing and anti-inflammatory properties of these products are just a few reasons why brands and beginning to understand the potential of CBD extracts and hemp-derived oils.

 

So what are the beauty benefits of CBD?

  • CBD is known to be highly ‘sebostatic’, meaning that it helps to regulate the skin’s sebum synthesis. This generally helps lead to fewer pimples, spots and blackheads whilst calming the skin cells. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, products featuring cannabis-based ingredients are known to target and reduce symptoms of acne and eczema. To keep your skin glowing all-year-round, CBD body butter is known to soften and hydrate thirsty skin helping to smooth away any dryness.

 

  • CBD in hair care. To stimulate hair growth, massaging CBD into the scalp on a regular basis is known to promote hair growth. CBD is full of Omega, fatty acids, which are necessary for the growth of healthy hair. Whilst also moisturising the scalp, CBD oil can also tackle stubborn dandruff by penetrating the dry skin. A little hair hack that has been sat under our noses all this time.

 

  • CBD and hemp-based oils are commonly used to treat depression, anxiety, insomnia and stress. Known to work aches, soothe stress and pro-long skin health, individuals are beginning to take this natural approach to encourage its ability to act on the brains serotonin receptors. Beauty sleep is a real thing and CBD can help to tackle a tired-looking face.

 

* If you are struggling with any of these symptoms, it is suggested to consult a doctor or research in-depth beforehand. – This is necessary before considering CBD if you are taking other medication *
