A new year provides everyone with a chance to set new goals and intentions. You’re not alone! You’re joining the other 189 million Americans who also make New Year’s resolutions.Typically, these goals revolve around health, career, and the overall betterment of life. Some of the most common ones are “eat healthier”, “exercise more” or “practice more self-care.” But have you ever gone to exercise the first week of January and been faced with a crowded gym, but by springtime you notice that the treadmills start to open up more? If there’s one thing that is common with New Year’s Resolutions it’s how easily they can be broken once life begins to speed up again.
Being a part of the very small percentage of individuals who successfully keep their resolutions requires a simple list of practices, but very important ones. You must first be realistic and thoughtful in planning out your goals, followed by tracking your progress, and ultimately celebrating your milestones and successes!
Here are a few tips that can help you along the way:

One of the best ways to alleviate your pain after a tough workout is to help your muscles and joints recover faster, so you can get back to your workout plans. Upgrade your body lotion a CBD hemp-infused lotion that soothes your skin, while rejuvenating your mind and body. When facing a new exercise goal, achy and sore muscles are almost always inevitable but alleviating pain and inflammation is within reach.
One thing everyone can probably use is more sleep, and building healthy sleep habits is the key to a balanced and healthy life. If you struggle with getting enough sleep and you’re looking to change that in the new year then CBD may be your new sleeping soulmate, especially if falling asleep is your biggest struggle.
