How to Use CBD to Tackle Holiday-Related Stress

The winter holidays should be relaxing, joyous, and merry. 

But, between long flights, balancing numerous family gatherings (or video chats), planning for gift-giving, and adjusting to an altered sleep schedule the holidays can turn from restful to ultra-stressful in the blink of an eye. 

When this holiday-related stress becomes too much to handle, it can manifest in the body and mind in many ways. 

For some, stress presents itself in the form of sleeplessness, irritability, and an unstable mood. For others, stress may look like aches and pains ranging from headaches to an upset stomach. 

 Whichever way you’re impacted by it, stress is no joke. And, holiday stress in particular can unleash the inner Grinch in even the merriest of us all.


How Can CBD Help?

Luckily, there is a reliable way to take care of holiday stress once and for all… CBD.

Many people have turned to CBD products to squash these winter woes due to its relaxing properties. In fact, research¹ shows that taking CBD supplements may be a great way to relieve stress and thoughts of overwhelm. This makes it perfect to incorporate during the fast-paced holiday season.  

But, because stress is not one-size-fits-all, it’s crucial to choose a CBD product that aims explicitly to alleviate your specific stress symptoms, whether they be mental, physical, or a combination of both.


Sleep Disruptions 

 A common way many people experience stress during the holidays is in the form of sleep disruptions. From a thrown-off sleep schedule due to obligations that run late, to racing thoughts of a seemingly endless to-do list, sleeping peacefully during the holidays can be a challenge. 

So, if holiday stress is causing some late-night tossing and turning, consider incorporating a product that promotes restful sleep and relaxation into your nighttime routine. 

Winged’s best selling Sleepy CBD formula is a tried-and-true choice. These tasty gummies are formulated with CBD & other cannabinoids from full spectrum hemp extract to help induce full-body relaxation. 

Sleepy also includes ingredients like Melatonin and L-Theanine to help put an overactive mind at ease. So if you’ve been making a mental list, and checking it twice (or three times, or four…), Sleepy may be able to help rest those racing thoughts. 

All in all, Sleepy’s formula is the perfect mixture of ingredients to help you get back to being nestled in bed (while visions of sugar plum fairies dance in your head). And you’ll wake up refreshed, not irritable, and ready to take on the season in stride. 


Physical Stress Symptoms

Stress is not just limited to mental struggles. Sometimes, stress manifests itself physically. 

If you notice headaches or a “nervous stomach” at the onset of stress, reach for a product formulated to tackle stress-related pain head-on. 

Relief by Winged does just that. These soft gel capsules are formulated with a pain support complex that may help relieve the minor aches and pains and digestive issues that come with stress. CBG, Relief’s hallmark ingredient, has been shown to be a powerful natural anti-inflammatory as well as effective in providing physical relaxation². CBG can help soothe and support you through minor aches and pains. 

Relief’s formula also includes ingredients like White Willow (another natural anti-inflammatory) and Ginger (which aids in digestion). These powerhouse natural remedies will help you get back to stress-free holiday enjoyment in no time. No matter what pains show up for you when stress strikes, Relief has your back. 

Don’t let stress and its symptoms get in the way of your holiday spirit. Incorporating Winged CBD products into your daily wellness routine can help you banish holiday stress for good.
