Daylight Savings Time: Spring Forward with Wellness

Daylight Savings Time: Spring Forward with Wellness

March 14th marked yet another Daylight Saving Time, where we spring forward into warmth and renewal. However, this spring reset also comes with losing an hour of sleep. An hour of lost sleep doesn't seem like much, but this change in daily pattern throws off our circadian rhythm, or internal clock, and can have severe health impacts. 


This internal clock is what our body runs off of, telling us when to carry out essential functions and processes with each tick. This includes when to sleep, wake up, release hormones, eat, regulate body temperature, digest, and other essential actions that help us feel our best. Daylight Savings Time yanks these internal timers out of sync- particularly in the springtime because most people find it harder to get up earlier than to stay up later. The side effects this lack of sleep bring can be severe and, as noted by Paula Spencer Scott,  include:

Can CBD Help Treat COVID-19?

As we continue to see coronavirus outbreaks around the world, we are growing more and more eager for a cure to this novel disease. As research continues to develop, quite unconventional candidates have been identified as potential treatments to COVID-19.

Plant-Based Sleep Remedies

Plant-Based Sleep Remedies

An estimated 1 in 3 Americans fails to get enough sleep each night. Sleep deprivation can not only impact your mood and productivity, but also lead to several serious long term health defects. 

While some turn to pharmaceutical sleep aids to find relief, they are far from a healthy solution. In fact, they can seriously escalate the issue. A New York Times article reported that prescription insomnia drugs zolpidem (Ambien, Edluar, Intermezzo and Zolpimist), zaleplon (Sonata) and eszopiclone (Lunesta) can lead to injury and death from sleepwalking, sleep-driving and engaging in other hazardous activities while not fully awake.” In addition, pharmaceutical sleep aids  can be habit-forming and may cause daytime sleepiness

With growing awareness of the risk associated with these sleep aids, many are looking for a more natural approach to a good night of sleep. And with more Americans looking to enhance their wellness, it’s easier than ever to find holistic sleep remedies.

Veganism + CBD

Despite the many fleeting trends in the wellness industry, it has become clear that veganism is here to stay. Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals.

In addition, a vegan diet helps support the humane treatment of animals. And lastly are the personal health and wellness benefits that stem from a plant based diet. Veganism harnesses the benefits of plant based superfoods, giving your body a healthy and robust assortment of nutrients.
