BPG’s Wellness Guide for 2019

February 7th, 2019

For most of us, achieving better health is a New Year’s resolution in 2019 (and, let’s be honest, has been almost every year).

Wellness is a journey that requires balancing the physical, emotional, and spiritual facets of your life. It can be challenging, but we believe in you, and we’re here to help!

Making small changes to your daily regimen allows you to work towards your goals, one step at a time, without feeling overwhelmed.

Each week, introduce one new adjustment and focus on accomplishing it every day. If it’s a task, assign a time when you will complete it. Ultimately, you will transform each task into a habit.

If you miss a day or make a mistake, don’t worry. Change takes time, and wellness is not rigid, it’s fluid. Thank yourself for making the commitment to your health and make a promise that you will do better tomorrow.

Meditating in the morning, joining a group fitness class, adding more vegetables to your diet, or drinking eight cups of water per day are a just few adjustments you can make towards a more balanced lifestyle.

Researchers compiled a trove of documents from around the world and examined earlier studies in order to “provide a critical and comprehensive evaluation, from the ancient times to our days, of the ethnological, botanical, chemical and pharmacological aspects of [cannabis], with a vision for promoting further pharmaceutical research to explore its complete potential as a therapeutic agent.”
