Pair a Forest Bath with Kyoto Botanicals CBD
You know how much we love nature. Everything we do is centered around bringing the healing benefits of nature to you, our families, and our friends. The main way we do this is through the beneficial health properties of the miraculous hemp plant. We work tirelessly to produce products that have the broadest suite of beneficial plant compounds to ensure that the end result for you is a CBD brand that you can trust will always work to help improve your wellbeing and help on your journey to Pure Harmony. Our premium hemp extract has high levels of CBD, but also contains CBC, CBG, CBN as well as terpenes – all of which are critical to to take advantage of the Entourage Effect and produce CBD products that actually work.
But beyond the hemp plant, we believe deeply that connecting with nature to improve our mental and physical wellbeing is critical to maintaining balance in an increasingly chaotic and stressful world. As part of this, we wanted to talk today about a new and exciting area of research called “Forest Bathing”.
According to experts, spending time outdoors in natural spaces is a great way to improve our mental health. The basic idea is to treat time in nature as you would a relaxing soak in your bathtub – that is you should use all your senses to try and absorb every sound, sight, color, smell and feel and allow that focus to drown out the stresses of your daily life.
For the maximum mental benefit from this, experts recommend 120 minutes a week in nature – but this does not need to be all at once and it does not have to be in the deep woods! If you have a park by your house or office, start and end each day with a 10-minute walk before walking in the office door and as soon as you walk out. Listen intently for individual bird calls, try and identify individual smells, touch leaves to see how each is different – the idea is to engage your senses to focus them on these details – you will be amazed how fast the stress of your day fades.
According to Kirsten McEwan an associate professor and research psychologist at the University of Derby in the United Kingdom, “Just having those micro moments of life in nature, whether it is just 5 or 10 minutes a day building up to that 120 minutes, it all has massive benefit”. Pairing these daily moments in nature with a consistent CBD routine using Kyoto Botanicals WARM(th) Cinnamon Turmeric CBD Tincture will help you find calm and focus and perspective in your daily life that will allow you to present your best self every moment of every day.
