The holidays can be tough for anyone, but for pot smokers especially it can be especially tough. Okay, so maybe that’s a little dramatic, but it is definitely true that smoking pot can make you feel pretty good during the holiday season. But regardless of how MFT you are, there are some things that you can do to make the holidays just a little bit easier. In this article, we will discuss a few tips on how to prepare yourself psychologically and physically for the post-holiday blues.
1. Get organized. The holidays often lead to feelings of stress and overwhelm. Making sure that you have all of your loose ends tied up will help youructure your thoughts and reduce the amount of anxiety that you may feel. This also helps put yourself in a better mood because you know that everything is under control.
2. Get some exercise. Believe it or not, exercising can actually help reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. Not only does exercise release endorphins, but it also releases dopamine which is an neurotransmitter associated with happiness and pleasure. So if you find yourself feeling a little down after the holidays, try getting outside for a run or bike ride!
3. Set realistic goals for yourself. Taking care of yourself will help reduce the amount of stress that you experience during the holidays. Make sure that your goals are manageable but still provide ample satisfaction. If your goals feel too daunting, set smaller ones to start with and build up from there.
4. Spend time with loved ones. Of course spending time with your loved ones is always important, but sometimes it can be hard to get away from your weed tank (pun intended).Giving yourselves some time away from marijuana will allow you to truly enjoy each other’s company without feeling obligated to smoke weed all night long!
5. Take care of your mental health first and foremost. Just like your physical health, taking care of your mental health is essential in reducing stress levels during the holidays season. Deal with any issues head-on instead of bottling them up inside or letting them get out of hand leading up to Christmas or New Year’s Eve。
