Using CBD to better manage your Mental Health

Now that Valentine’s day is over and the month of love is coming to an end, you’ve spent large amounts of money adorning loved ones with gifts expressing your affection. This might have you feeling quite pressurized and cause a lot of anxiety, leading to stress and depression.

As part of CBD’s ability to control the cerebral neurotransmission of serotonin and norepinephrine. CBD is thought to also have an effect on depression. In addition, CBD stimulates the synaptic plasticity and neurogenesis which also plays a role in the development and treatment of depression

We wanted to take a look at some ways your mental health affects your relationships and some natural ways to cope with this anxiety so that your relationship can flourish.

Anxiety and relationships

If you are a person who struggles with anxiety, you may find your anxiety spills over into your relationships. Perhaps you are in a happy and stable relationship but still find that you have intrusive thoughts such as ‘what if they leave me?’ or ‘what if I’m not good enough?’ While we may be fully aware of our negative self-talk, it can be hard to silence the anxious chatter in our minds which can prevent your relationship from moving forward.

One of the best ways to overcome this is to communicate with your partner about your thoughts, feelings and needs. An honest conversation can add to a healthy relationship. It can help to discuss coping mechanisms with your partner and let them know what methods help you cope with these feelings.

We recommend adding a natural supplement to help ease anxiety. Our Nature’s Relief CBD Calm is a great supplement to help manage stress and anxiety around stressful situations. CBD can help to slow down intrusive thoughts so that you are able to better enjoy the present moment.

Mental Health & Intimacy

Your mental health can affect your intimacy. If you are suffering from feelings of depression, you may find that you feel disinterested in sex in general.

Conventional depression medication is also known to decrease libido. Sex should never feel like an obligation but rather something both you and your partner enjoy together. There are natural ways to increase your libido and your enjoyment.

Nature’s Relief Elevate is the perfect combination of sceletium and ashwagandha which are both herbs known for their mood boosting benefits. Adding a CBD lube to your intimate moments may help you to relax and increase sensation.

Nature’s Relief CBD lube is great for heightened sensation, increased blood flow and muscle relaxation. All helping you to mutually enjoy the experience.

Mental health and social settings

If you struggle with anxiety and/or depression, you may find social settings challenging. Mental health problems may cause you to struggle to connect with others or navigate relationships.

Be patient with yourself as you navigate these spaces. Reach out to others if you feel overwhelmed and remember that it is ok to remove yourself from a setting that you are not comfortable in.

If, however, you find yourself in an unavoidable situation such as a work function or special event, a little boost may help. We suggest keeping a Nature’s Relief Nootropic Calm on hand for help with stressful situations. This is a blend made up of Nano CBD and Reishi exract. CBD is a safe way to manage anxiety and Reishi contains a mood boosting compound called triterpene that may alleviate stress, anxiety and depression.

Supporting your partner

We know it is difficult to see your partner struggle with their mental health. You can support your partner by having a gentle conversation about how you can be there for them.

If you feel like you need more support, why not visit a mental health care provider together? At Nature’s Relief, we offer free consultations with our qualified in store homeopath. Please don’t hesitate to reach out and book a consultation for you and your partner together so we can look at ways to support your relationship individually and together.
