A season for self care
As the air is becoming crisper and the leaves are turning to autumnal hues of orange and gold – the change of season is upon us, and this brings with it changes that will affect our minds and bodies.
As the days become shorter, we will all be getting less sunlight which can affect our circadian rhythm and sleep cycles. With less exposure to ultraviolet rays, our bodies are thrown into confusion and need more sleep to recover (on average around 2 and a half hours a night). You may find that you are managing to sleep longer than you were in the summer, but that the quality of your sleep is suffering so that you wake up feeling fatigued.
Several people have found that taking Papilio’s Relax CBD oil has helped to counterbalance this.
Other solutions are to get outdoors as much as possible, especially on those beautiful sunny autumn days; to take short naps during the day - even a 20-minute power nap can make the world of difference.
Many of us are also dealing with a change of daily schedule – back to office working, back to school, back to university – all of which come with their own stresses and strains.
Sadly, those who suffer with anxiety do tend to report a spike in symptoms during autumn. For this, we can recommend our Balance CBD oil to help support your mood during the change of season. Don’t take our word for it, this product has also been voted best CBD remedy for anxiety by the Independent.
We would also recommend getting as much sunlight as you can, and raising the levels of vitamin D in your body.
Above all, be kind to yourself, don’t put yourself under too much strain – take things one day at a time, and make sure you make time for plenty of rest and self-care.
