Are you spending this year’s holiday season alone like many others around the globe? Whether it’s due to the coronavirus or your personal choice to hunker down indoors and enjoy your own company, we have put together some of the best ways to help you crank up the fun this holiday season.
Light up and let go.
One of the hottest trending extracurricular activities this decade is smoking a CBD pre roll, also known as hemp pre-rolls. Rather than using cannabis, these “joints” use hemp, which doesn’t contain the psychoactive element THC, which means they aren’t intoxicating. Rather, these pre-rolls are known for making you feel relaxed, at ease, and free of worry. The benefits of CBD (cannabidiol) range from anxiety management, stress relief, sleep improvement, soothing nausea and vomiting, and reducing inflammation.
These joints are smoked the same way someone would smoke a regular joint, which can be relaxing in itself, especially if you are a former cigarette smoker or trying to quit. Users can usually feel the relaxing effects of CBD almost instantly, but it often takes 15 to 30 minutes to completely feel the effects.
Because there are so many companies selling CBD today, it’s important to make sure your source is legit, safe, and of high quality. You will want to look at whether the CBD is third-party tested, free of pesticides and herbicides, and what type of customer reviews the product has.
You might want to consider lighting up a CBD pre-roll along with your Christmas lights to have a relaxing, stress-free evening in front of the tree this holiday season. If you’re worried about the smell of cannabis, there are several products on the market to help with the strength of the scent, including Veil Weed Odor Eliminator, which breaks down the odor on a molecular level and leaves your space free of the smell your neighbors might get suspicious of.
Treat yourself to an at-home manicure.
You might be someone who tends to neglect your body more during winter or the holiday season, like many of us are guilty of due to being inside more and wearing several layers of clothing. Who needs to shave their legs when we are wearing pants, a majority of the time? Something that will boost your confidence and leave you feeling beautiful is giving yourself a manicure or pedicure. Who doesn’t love a little relaxation in the form of an at-home spa?
There are so many different nail accessories on the market today. From the ability to do your own salon quality gel nails at home to press-on nails, the at-home manicure game is changing and improving all the time. Say goodbye to traditional manicures and treat yourself to something innovative, as well as beautiful this holiday season.
Get spooky this holiday season.
If celebrating Christmas or the holidays in a traditional sense isn’t your thing, you might want to consider immersing yourself in the world of magic. Sometimes it’s fun to switch up the old traditions and explore something completely new and different. Whether you are a beginner or advanced spell-caster, there are so many fun products on the market to help you practice witchcraft in the comfort of your own home this holiday season.
From smudge sticks to incense rituals and candle holders, the owners and creators of mydnytblu.com have a wide variety of witchcraft accessories to choose from. The owners are a third-generation team and are dedicated to the quality and craftsmanship of their products. If you have ever been curious about diving into this mysterious and tantalizing world of “magick” and witchcraft, this holiday season might be a great time to start digging into all things superstition, folklore, natural remedy, and myth.
Host a solo karaoke party in your living room.
If you are spending the holidays alone but have always wanted to take the stage, there is no better time to belt out those Christmas music favorites than now. Not everyone is willing to jump on stage at their favorite karaoke bar with full-fledged confidence, which is why hosting a solo karaoke party in your living room is the next best bet. Not only can you practice for the real thing (if that’s what the goal is), but you can do it without shame or judgment from onlookers. Knock back a couple of eggnog cocktails, crank that timeless Mariah Carey Christmas album and get the party started!
There is no better time to focus on meditation than when your time is uninterrupted, and you are in solitude. Meditation is often an abstract topic for people who aren’t familiar with it or its benefits. Still, once you practice, the process not only becomes easier, but it becomes more relaxing and enjoyable. Meditation, by definition, is the action or practice of meditating, but it’s simply a time to reflect and think in a relaxing way.
There are several tips to begin the process of meditating, which start with getting comfortable. Ensure you are in a comfortable room in your home, in comfortable clothing, and aren’t around any distractions. Sit comfortably, whether it is seated in a chair or lying down. Next, you should focus on your breathing. Try to note where you feel yourself inhaling and exhaling and the parts of your body that it’s coming from and moving. Follow the natural rise and fall of your breath. You should soon find yourself losing yourself in thought and trailing off, but see if you can try to get back to focusing on your breathing.
Your thoughts during meditation should be positive, so treat yourself kindly and enjoy the relaxation and time to yourself. It can greatly improve your mood as well as your overall outlook
Spending the holidays alone might seem either daunting or something you aren’t used to doing, but if you are expecting to be solo this year, these are just some of the many ways you can make the most of that time by yourself.
