New Year, New Me
It’s 11:57 on New Year's Eve. Everyone is pretty intoxicated by this point as the alcohol has been flowing all night. Next thing you know, you’re waking up at 7 am hungover, nauseous, and feeling like death. “I’m never drinking again!” you exclaim. “I can’t party like I used to when I was 22”, where does the time even go?
It may be cliché, but a lot of people see value in the coming new year. It’s a chance to finally DO the things you’ve been talking about for the last 8 months (like cutting back on alcohol). Clean slate, a fresh start, you know the vibes. So why spend the majority of your ‘fresh start’ hungover on your bathroom floor?
Same Old Alcohol
New Year's Eve goes the same way for a lot of people. You go to a party, drink too much alcohol and deeply regret it the next morning. In the moment, it can be difficult to know when to stop drinking. So why do we do it? Here’s some of the top reasons people consume and overconsume alcohol on New Year's Eve:
- Don’t want to be seen as ‘boring’
- Social stress-being around lots of people
- One last ‘hurrah’ before the year ends
- Bottled up stress from the past year
Hey, we get it! You’re just trying to have a fun night with friends, but at what cost? We’re not saying you should cut out all alcohol but a little moderation never hurt anyone.
Party Smarter-With CBD
Don’t feel bad if you want to skip the alcohol this year, we’ve got an alternative that’s even better...CBD! CBD, aka cannabidiol, is a compound found in hemp plants. No, CBD won’t get you high, instead, you may feel reduced stress, enhanced mood, and increased relaxation. Remind me why you drink alcohol again? All the feel-good feelings that you’re chasing with alcohol, you can get with CBD (minus the hangover)! Let’s get into some ways to swap the booze for something a bit more chill.
CBD- the ‘Chiller’ Pregame
While you’re getting ready to celebrate the last day of the year, you can get started on your night of chill. Start by lighting a CBD candle. The sweet aroma will have your space feeling more zen and less chaotic as you begin to overthink the night ahead. There’s something so calming about a lit candle, and these CBD candles really understood the assignment of relaxation.
Instead of pregaming with some tequila shots, try a fruity CBD shot! These social assists are the best bang for your buck, with 30MG of CBD in every bottle, you’ll feel energized and ready to take on the night.
Now by the time you get to the party you may be feeling a bit of social stress and brain chatter that looks something like this:
- How will the night go?
- Who will be there?
- Will you get a New Year’s kiss?
- What will you talk about?
Stop and breathe! You came prepared. Our CBD Beverage Enhancers are a fun and shareable way to get your CBD fix. Just shake and squeeze into any cocktail and you’ll go from shy and awkward to main character in no time!
Tick Tock Tick Tock! It’s almost midnight, and you know what that means. If you are looking to score points with your significant other, try some CBD mouth spray. Ring in the new year with fresh breath and a fresh mind. Your New Year’s kiss will thank you.
A Good Night's Sleep with CBD
Now that the festivities are over, you want to start the first night of the New Year with the best sleep possible. Our OG Oil Concentrate will reduce that pesky brain chatter as you drift off to sleep. For best results it’s recommended that you take it sublingually (under the tongue), but you can also mix it into some nighttime tea.
A New Year with CBD
Follow this guide for a hangover free New Year’s Eve! Alcohol may be the obvious option for New Year’s but if 2021 taught us anything, it’s that health and wellness should be everyone’s priority. Cutting out some alcohol and adding CBD to your wellness routine is a step in the right direction. So, stop stressin’ and start chillax’n, 2022 is YOUR year!
