A cannabis oil strategy to survive Brexit!
CBD articles can be very boring!
It’s a fact.
After all, CBD is a very specialized topic with most of the articles being created by Cannabis researchers and CBD research facilities.
Boring to read and boring to write.
So for the sake of all of you CBD enthusiasts who would prefer something a little more interesting to read here goes:
Hands up if you have ever been in a slow-motion train crash?
I’m referring to those days when you open your eyes, feel good for a few seconds and then the rest of the day seems to get progressively worse. And no matter what you do, it starts to feel like the whole day is turning into a slow-motion train wreck.
It can end up feeling as though you know the next part of your day is going to be a disaster, even before it happens!
And no matter what you do, you just can’t seem to find a way to get your day back on track.
Brexit is like a slow-motion train wreck!
You may have noticed that the Brexit mess feels a lot like the driver is asleep and we are hurtling toward disaster?
And it can be extremely stressful, being a passenger during a slow-motion train wreck. Rocking from side to side, wheels lifting off the tracks, shaking uncontrollably whilst heading towards the bridge collapse.
What makes matters worse is that it’s not easy to get off.
In fact, it’s impossible!
But life must go on regardless.
There are appointments to keep, kids to look after, deadlines to meet, bills to pay, and none of it can wait. A whole list of things to do whilst trying to remain calm and balanced as the Brexit train rocks wildly from side to side.
And it can feel like a living nightmare.
But the train doesn’t stop, those in charge of the train have no idea what to do, the passengers are fighting with each other, and it seems we are getting closer and closer to some kind of disastrous crash.
But Brexit is happening, in one form or another, and there is nothing that anyone can do to stop it.
And we all need to continue with our daily routines while our politicians continue to fight amongst each other.
So what can you do to make help make your journey a smoother ride?
Surprisingly, during this slow-motion Brexit train wreck, you may notice a few people who seem to remain calm and centred whilst chaos and carnage happens all around. As other people scream, cry and panic, they may even smile!
And it’s hard to believe they are even passengers on the same train.
So what’s their secret you may be wondering?
How can they possibly remain calm while everyone else loses their minds?
You may be surprised at the answer to this question because the answer isn’t that they are all using CBD.
The answer is:
They are relaxed because they are not even on the same train!
Allow me to explain, but first a quick look at perception and maps of reality.
Brexit is as stressful as you think it is.
We all live in the same world.
It’s the same world but it’s not the same for everyone who lives in it. We all have different internal maps of reality and that’s how we navigate our daily lives.
There’s a great story about an old wise Buddhist farmer:
The farmer woke up one day to discover all of his horses had escaped, which is a bad thing for a horse farmer. But when his neighbours remarked on how bad his luck had become, he replied, “maybe”.
The next day his horses returned bringing with them dozens of additional wild horses, and when his neighbours remarked how great his fortune had become, he responded “maybe”
The following day his son suffered a broken leg whilst attempting to ride one of the wild horses, and when his neighbours commented on his bad luck the farmer replied “maybe”
Army recruitment officers arrived the next day and took all of the young men from the village, except the farmer’s son, and when the townspeople congratulated him on his good fortune, the old man simply replied…… “maybe”
I’m not sure if the farmer enjoyed using CBD or even if he was secretly vaping some cannabidiol in his pipe. But he was very relaxed about unexpected events.
Almost as if he was living in a different world!
Which brings us back to our train ride.
Want to avoid a stressful Brexit? Get on a different train!
So you may be wondering how you can survive the trials and tribulations of a chaotic Brexit process whilst remaining calm and centred?
To be brutally honest, not many will be able to.
But if you start your day off right, you have a 1000% better chance of staying on a smoother track.
If you want to avoid a bumpy ride try setting 5 minutes aside each morning.
The idea is to relax, nothing else, just relax.
You could also consider using a few drops of CBD oil (taken 30 minutes before), or a quick CBD vape, to help get you into the right frame of mind and make it a little easier for you to enjoy relaxing for a few minutes.
Here is the process:
Simply close your eyes and visualize yourself in nature, or imagine yourself on a beautiful sun-kissed beach. My favourite imaginary relaxation retreat is on a grassy bank, under an old oak tree next to a slow flowing river.
All you need is 5 minutes (or longer if you like) simply enjoying the peace and calm.
And you are free to create your own perfect inner sanctuary, however you like, far away from the Brexit chaos currently tearing our country apart.
Everyone is different and it’s best to create your own perfect place where you can allow yourself to become calm and centred.
Go ahead, be creative, you are the designer and the director of your own internal relaxation sanctuary.
And you can do it every day.
And while you’re enjoying the simple pleasure of feeling happy and relaxed you may not even notice, but you miss a train. It’s a good train to miss, the passengers on that train will not enjoy the journey or the destination.
Instead, you may find yourself on a different track, rolling along at a slower speed, enjoying the scenery and you may even find yourself smiling as the latest Brexit news provokes frustration and anger amongst others.
Because you’re on a different track.
So the world seems a little different.
And that little difference may be the only thing you need to make a big difference in how you feel.
Is Brexit a disaster?
