Anxiety is your body’s natural response to stress. It's a feeling of fear or apprehension about what’s to come. The first day of school, going to a job interview, or giving a speech may cause most people to feel fearful and nervous.
Anxiety feels different depending on the person experiencing it. Feelings can range from butterflies in your stomach to a racing heart. You might feel out of control, like there’s a disconnect between your mind and body.
Other ways people experience anxiety include nightmares, panic attacks, and painful thoughts or memories that you can’t control. You may have a general feeling of fear and worry, or you may fear a specific place or event.
Symptoms of general anxiety include:
increased heart rate
difficulty falling asleep
For some people, medical treatment isn’t necessary. Lifestyle changes may be enough to cope with the symptoms. Yoga and CBD has been the most helpful tools for my anxiety so I would love to share them with you!
Jaclyn Genovese of Fitness by Jacflash and her yoga instructor Kay Ghajar will guide you through their anxiety reducing workshop at home.
Upon purchase of this at home workshop, you will receive:
1. A very special one-hour power yoga sequence with a special focus on breath exercises and poses that help to alleviate anxiety.
2. A CBD Girl Guide, written by Antuanette Gomez, founder of Pleasure Peaks. This guide discusses how CBD works in the brain, it's many benefits with a particular focus on how CBD alleviates anxiety, methods of consumption and dosage.
For many young women, their daily distress doesn’t seem serious enough to warrant therapy (which can be expensive) or prescription anxiety meds (which come with the risk of addiction and side effects). CBD oil for anxiety, however, offers a natural, affordable alternative.
