Being zen and mother, it's possible !
Child/life balance is at the heart of mothers' concerns. As true women-orchestras, they have to manage the imperatives of daily life, meet the needs of their tribe while maintaining the course of their own dreams... which creates stress that is sometimes difficult to control.
According to an IPSOS* study on the parent-child relationship, 93% of parents believe that there is no greater success in life than being a good parent. But what does it mean to be a "good mother"? What are the criteria?
So each one sets goals based on her own experience and social-cultural issues. A perfectionist vision that is often unattainable, leading to a feeling of "not doing enough" for one's children, or being overwhelmed. Guilt and stress then set in, forming a vicious circle of health problems, such as insomnia, migraines and pain.
CBD to relieve stress
When stress sets in, it manifests itself in several ways. It can be sneaky and can be due to a fatigue that you hope will be temporary or to an inability of concentration that you think is due to the change of season.
It can also be more frank and appear suddenly in the form of an emotional crisis or physical pain**. Solutions against stress and its harmful effects in everyday life are now well known, including relaxation, sport, a balanced diet, and a "positive attitude".
To this list can be added CBD, a non-psychotropic molecule extracted from hemp, which has proven to be effective in the fight against anxiety-related disorders. CBD naturally stimulates serotonin (also called happiness hormone) and promotes wellness, without inducing addiction.
Famous moms using CBD
No one is immune to stress, famous or not. Kim Kardashian, swear by CBD. So much so that she chose it as the theme for her Baby Shower***. She says that CBD has helped her overcome her postpartum depression and that its regular use provides her with an important sense of wellness that allows her to cope with all the demands of being a celebrity mum without resorting to anxiolytics. While Kim Kardashian favours the use of CBD in the form of oil, other famous mothers such as Gwyneth Paltrow or Kristen Bell prefer it in beauty products such as balms and body creams.
In a nutshell,
Fatigue, aches and pains in the joints are the lot of many women who try to keep up with the frenetic pace of a modern mother. Anxiety is contagious and can be passed on to children and invade every minute of family life. That's why these women use CBD to reduce stress and the symptoms it generates because it brings a sense of wellness to their daily lives without "getting high" or creating an addiction.
