Table of Content

As we bid farewell to the old year and welcome the new, it's natural to take a moment to reflect on the past and look ahead to the future. January is a month that often makes us think about what we want to accomplish and the steps we can take to get there.

The time-honored tradition of setting healthy new year's resolutions is one way of creating an intention to impact our lives positively.

And when it comes to achieving success in the new year, there's no better place to start than with your health. By prioritizing your wellness, you'll set yourself up for success in all areas of your life.

This blog post will share the best new year's resolutions and ways to incorporate your favorite Neurogan products to support your overall health goals.

Let's start 2023 on the right note with these five new year's resolution ideas.

Resolution #1: Improve Sleep Habits

Resolution #1: Improve Sleep Habits

Is getting enough sleep on your list of new year's resolutions?

Maybe it should be.

An often-overlooked health goal is getting enough sleep. For many, sleep is the first sacrifice they'll make when working towards other goals like exercising more or increasing productivity.

The truth is crafting healthy sleeping habits is the foundation of overall health. Constantly overlooking the importance of sleep is a bad habit that can have consequences that impact many areas of our lives.

Research shows that getting a good night's sleep helps to improve your mood, strengthen the immune system, make you more resilient to stress, reduce the risk of developing depression, increase recovery, and boost your energy levels.

This is often easier said than done, but there several things you can do to improve your sleep hygiene, including:

  • Establishing a consistent bedtime routine

  • Eating healthier

  • Create a relaxing sleeping environment that's dark and cool

  • Time the lighting in your home in the evenings and focus on relaxing the mind and body before bed

  • Avoid screen time at least an hour before bed as blue light from screens and prevent you from falling asleep

  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol before bedtime

Incorporating CBD products into your bedtime routine might be the key to helping you achieve the recommended eight hours of sleep.

CBD has been shown to support brain activity, slowing down the stress response, which can help with racing thoughts [1].

Many people use CBD and other hemp-based cannabinoids to help them fall asleep and stay asleep throughout the night without feeling groggy the next morning. Additionally, CBD may help those who have trouble sleeping due to pain by managing the pain signaling systems through the endocannabinoid system [2].

When CBD doesn't seem to do the trick, CBN is a minor hemp cannabinoid that manages to step up to the job.

Resolution #2: Exercise Regularly

Resolution #2: Exercise Regularly

Regular exercise is one of the most popular new year's resolutions for self-improvement.

We all know that regular exercise has many benefits for physical and mental health.

But just as a refresher, some benefits of regular exercise include improved cardiovascular health for reducing the risk of heart disease, stronger muscles and bones, improved weight management, and reduced stress and anxiety.

Sometimes understanding why a new year's resolution is so difficult to maintain is the key to mastering it in the year ahead.

There are several reasons why people might struggle to stay on top of regular exercise, like lack of time, lack of self-motivation, and injuries.

If you struggle to find the self-control to carry out this new year's resolution idea, here are several ways you can stay on track with your exercise routine:

  • Make exercise fun by joining a sports team or trying out that dance class

  • Take lessons in a sport to learn a new skill (rock climbing, tennis, swimming)

  • Get a professional to help you create a workout plan you can stick to

  • Find clothes that will make you excited to workout in

  • Find a workout buddy who can help you make working out fun and hold you accountable throughout the new year

By finding ways to overcome common obstacles and incorporating strategies like goal-setting and accountability, you can increase your chances of success in setting resolutions, making exercise a regular part of your routine.

Neurogan Products For Exercise

Once you start a workout regimen, sore muscles and aches can make it hard to stick to it in the long run.

That's where CBD products come in to help you stick to your healthy new year's resolution.

Research shows that CBD supports muscle and joint pain and discomfort, which can help you feel your best in 2023 [3].

While you can take CBD products internally, many people find massaging topical CBD products help to target discomfort at the source quickly.

Resolution #3: Eat A Healthy Diet

Resolution #3: Eat A Healthy Diet

This isn't the most exciting of new year's resolutions, but it's still important.

Eating a healthy diet is essential for improving energy levels, supporting healthy weight (lower risk of obesity), reducing disease risk, and managing stress.

However, sticking to a healthy diet can be challenging, especially when unhealthy options are often more convenient and readily available.

Some common obstacles to eating a healthy diet and finally reaching that weight loss goal or supporting your training regimen include lack of time, access to healthy food options, and the temptation to indulge in unhealthy cravings.

To make it easier to stick to healthy eating habits, try the following:

  • Plan your meals and snacks to reduce the chances of choosing unhealthy, processed, and convenient options.

  • Mind how much food and the quality of food you're eating by keeping a food journal.

  • Drink less alcohol or avoid it altogether if you can — alcoholic drinks contain high empty calories and can make you more prone to binge eating on a night out.

  • Try the 70:30 rule, which suggests focusing on whole, unprocessed foods for 70% of your meals and allowing yourself to indulge in 30%, allowing you to be healthy without becoming too restrictive.

  • Seek a professional nutritionist who can help you plan healthy and balanced meals and give you ideas to stay motivated

Neurogan Products To Help You Eat Healthier

Some people report that CBD supplementation has helped them reduce cravings for unhealthy foods, making it easier to stick to a healthy meal plan to lose weight [4].

While CBD isn't a weight loss tool, many people find it helpful for supporting their overall well-being, which can help them make more conscious decisions and stick to their resolutions.

Resolution #4: Reduce Stress And Anxiety

Resolution #2: Exercise Regularly

Stress is normal and helpful in small and manageable amounts, as it can motivate you. However, stress and anxiety can wreak havoc on your physical and mental health in the long run if it goes unchecked.

Out of all the new year's resolutions ideas on this list, this one is more challenging to tackle, as stress and anxiety can manifest from various life circumstances, including financial difficulties, relationships, traumatic events, substance abuse, health problems, and work-related pressures.

Stress management will largely depend on the types of stressors you're experiencing, but it can look like the following:

  • Set boundaries on the demands placed on your time and energy.

  • Practice relaxation techniques from meditation and breathing exercises to calm your central nervous system.

  • Eat healthier by cutting out processed food

  • Keep a gratitude journal as a daily practice.

  • Practice self-care regularly.

  • Cut toxic people out of your life.

  • Start a new hobby or learn new skills to give you a sense of reward and boost your brain power.

  • Connect with others to reduce stress and feel a sense of support and connection.

  • Seek professional help from a counselor or therapist.

Neurogan To Help With Stress

If your new year's resolution involves finding ways to reduce stress, let Neurogan help.

CBD may help to support stress and anxiety by facilitating brain activity that regulates stress levels [1].

For those who may have social anxiety, CBD might be able to offer some support too.

In a simulated public speaking study, participants reported feeling less anxious after taking CBD [5]. The study involved giving a group of participants a dose of CBD and another group a placebo, measuring their anxiety levels before and after the speech.

When life is starting to feel overwhelming, try:

Resolution #5: Save Money

Resolution #5: Save Money

Saving money is one of the best new year's resolutions for looking after your future self, as looking after your finances provides stability and security. And as our founder, Jan Brandrup, has said in the past, "financial wellness is wellness."

There are many ways to save money, including setting a budget, cutting unnecessary expenses, and saving on everyday expenses.

It can also be helpful to have a specific goal, such as saving for a down payment on a house or building an emergency fund.

Making a plan and being disciplined about saving makes it possible to progress towards this resolution and build a stronger financial foundation.

While we don't have a CBD product recommendation that will magically sort out your financial goals, we're proud to offer premium hemp-based CBD products that are effective and affordable.

We believe wellness should be accessible to more people, not just those with more money.

By having sales year-round and special pricing programs for veterans and first responders, we're here to help bring CBD to those who could use its positive impact.

The Takeaway: New Year's Resolution Ideas

Make 2023 the year you stop procrastinating and make your goals a reality.

When we get caught up with the day-to-day stressors of life, it can be challenging to take a step back and look at the big picture of why you're committing to your new year's resolutions.

Whether you're looking to lose weight, practice more self-care, get out of your comfort zone and finally travel, or spend more time with your loved ones — setting an intention at the start of the upcoming year might help you focus on your goals and bring them to life.

No matter what your goals look like this year, remember that the best new year's resolutions are the ones you can stick to, and we're here to help with high-quality CBD products that support a wide range of wellness goals for a healthier, happier life.

FAQ

What do CBD sleep products do?

Many people use CBD and other hemp-based cannabinoids to help them fall asleep and stay asleep throughout the night without feeling groggy the next morning. Furthermore, CBD may assist those who have difficulty sleeping due to pain by managing the pain signaling systems via the endocannabinoid system.

How do CBD topicals work?

When CBD cream is applied to sore muscles, it interacts with endocannabinoid receptors in the epidermis. Because none of it is broken down by the digestive system or first-pass liver metabolism, topical applications are far more potent and provide localized support for soothing sore muscles and joints.

Can I use CBD for Stress Relief?

CBD and other cannabinoids have strong antioxidant and neuroprotective properties, which may help protect cells and promote brain health. It has also been shown to increase GABA activity in the brain, a neurotransmitter involved in slowing down the physiological stress response.

What are the benefits of CBD tea?

CBD tea is unique in that it introduces you to the pure, raw, unfiltered leaves and blossoms of the hemp plant, which may help with relaxation, mood, normal inflammatory function, and other benefits. As a result, CBD tea is an excellent option for “purists” and those looking for a CBD product as close to the source as possible.
