Yo, it’s a new year, and you know what that means? Time to make those resolutions, fam. We all wanna lose weight, get fit, and be healthier, right? I mean, that’s what everybody be sayin’. According to the Ohio State University, only 9% of people actually stick to their resolutions. That’s a low number, bro. Like, real low. And get this, 23% of people give up on their goals by the end of the first week! And 43% quit by the end of January. Damn. But don’t worry, we got your back. We got a couple of suggestions to help you stay on track and slay those resolutions.
First things first, you gotta manage your expectations. Don’t go all crazy and set goals like running a half-marathon when you ain’t never even jogged around the block. Start small, my dude. Set a goal to just move more. Yeah, that’s it. Just move your body whenever you get the chance. Take the stairs instead of the elevator, walk to the store instead of driving. Trust me, it adds up. And guess what? Moving more opens up your mind and body to exercise. It’s like a gateway drug to getting fit.
Now, when it comes to exercise, you gotta try out some yoga. It ain’t just for hippies and yogis anymore, ya feel me? Even if you only got 5-10 minutes to spare, you can do yoga anywhere. And let me tell you, it’s gonna make your body and mind feel hella good. Yoga improves your strength, balance, and flexibility, which are all important for reaching your fitness goals in the long run. Plus, it helps you relax and sleep better. And who don’t want more energy and brighter moods? I know I do.
But here’s where things get interesting, my friend. Did you know that marijuana and yoga have been chillin’ together for a long time? Yeah, it’s true. Cannabis can actually enhance your yoga practice. How, you ask? Well, it helps reduce stress, anxiety, and pain, which allows you to relax both physically and mentally. And when you’re relaxed, you can stay more present and focused during your practice. It’s like you’re in the zone, man.
Now, if you wanna get high before your yoga sesh, smoking or vaping is the way to go. It hits you real quick, like BAM! But hold up, smoking ain’t all rainbows and sunshine. It can be harmful to your lungs ’cause of those nasty carcinogens. So if you wanna be smart about it and minimize the harm, try vaping instead. It’s a smoother experience, bro.
But here’s another option for you if you got some time to spare before yoga. You can try a gummy or a sublingual spray or even some chocolate infused with cannabis. That way, you can have a micro-dose and get yourself in the right headspace without losing focus. It’s all about finding what works for you, ya know?
And yo, if you’re just starting out with moving and yoga, cannabis can be your best friend. It’s an anti-inflammatory, meaning it helps ease the pain and soreness in your muscles as you switch things up. So as you dive into the new year and start moving your body, cannabis can be right there with you, supporting your physical and mental health journey.
So there you have it, fam. If you wanna stick to those resolutions and become a new and improved version of yourself this year, remember to manage your expectations, move more, try some yoga, and maybe even invite Mary Jane along for the ride. You got this!
