Now that quarantine is lifting, and life is resuming a bit of normalcy, I’ve had some time to think about how truly crazy these past few months have been and what helped me through it.
I know everyone had their own blend of crazy, but at our house, ours looked like this: three small children who had been in school and daycare full time were all the sudden home full time… I’m running and pivoting my business as quick as I can… also trying to be teacher and extra-fun mom to keep everyone happy and engaged… while my husband still had to go into work and was working extra hours. Plus sanitizing groceries, worrying about my immunocompromised husband or parents’ health if they got COVID, and worrying about basically all the things. It was a LOT.
Luckily, pre-quarantine, I was looking into CBD to help reduce inflammation I was feeling from running more lately, plus help with sleep and #momlife stress. I came across this new line of CBD supplements called Baseline. They had a 5-day sampler pack you could get if you wanted to try it out, so I got that (Essentials kit). Friend, this was a GAME CHANGER.
Just to give you an example, the week before I tried the sampler kit, my mind was going a million miles a minute, I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t focus when I did have the little time to work, and I was so tired and stressed that I couldn’t fully enjoy family time.
I like Baseline because there’s a supplement you take throughout the day for each of these four areas where I was struggling:
– Day Shift: Energy Support
-Fog Lifter: Clarity & Focus
-Ground Control: Stress Support
-REM Ritual: Sleep Support
After five days, I felt like my stress, mood, sleep, digestion, metabolism, immune system, and inflamed joints were in a better place. The biggest thing for me was the sleep, because when I could sleep better, everything else got better. So I decided to stick with it.
I’m no longer a pot-of-coffee a day kind of person. I’m not the 10am and 3pm mental crash person any more, either. I honestly don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t found Baseline before life turned upside down! I just wanted to share in case there’s anyone out there dealing with something similar (minus the quarantine – haha!) Here’s the website to learn more: https://www.baseline-wellness.com
