Are you taking the necessary time to keep up your mental health?

Coping with mental illness is one thing, but what if you could prevent illness from the start? Some ways of keeping up on your own mental wellness are:

  1. Make sure you are getting a full nights rest

    • Many Americans don’t sleep through the night which can directly affect your wellness. Ask your bud-tender which products can help you get the rest you need.

  2. Physical Exercise

    • Low-Intensity exercise is the best for mental wellness because it builds new neurotrophic connections, this can improve brain function. Medicated soaks and balms will help relax your muscles afterwards!

  3. Diet

    • Serration (a neurotransmitter) helps regulate sleep and appetite, it also helps facilitate emotions and inhibit pain. Since 95% of serration is produced in the gastrointestinal tract, it is important to keep processed foods out and nutrient rich foods in. Try implementing fermented foods such as kimchi, pickles, kombucha, or miso into your diet. These foods are low in sugars and high in “good” bacteria for your tummy.
