8 Easy Ways To Completely Change Your Mental Space And Live Your Best Life

The best habits I have found among the most successful CEO’s and Personal Development Experts are:

  • Affirmations/Visualizations: Take five minutes, two times a day to re-affirm yourself with your goals, dreams and desires. Most of us do not achieve our goals not because we are too lazy, or untalented, but more because we forget them and our connection towards them.
    • Go outside: Even if it is for just ten minutes a day, take the time to go for a short walk or sit in a place surrounded by nature for a short while. Take the stress of the day off and you will feel instantly recharged.

Cannabis Oil Distillate: A Different Kind of Concentrate

(CHBD/iStock)

A drop of distillate sits perched on the edge of a dabbing tool. Taut like a raindrop, this viscus and opaque orb glimmers as it rests within the concave folds of titanium. Encased within this golden drop of goodness is a semi-translucent, 99% pure decarboxylated and distilled tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) sap. Dollar for dollar, this morsel of oil is worth more by weight than just about any other consumable substance on the market, and for good reason: Cannabis oil distillates are arguably the future of cannabis concentrates.

11 Tips To Make Your Grocery Trip A Whole Lot Healthier

One of the best ways to practice healthy eating is to surround yourself with a variety of nutritious foods. Having spent a good part of my career helping clients get healthier, one of the first things we discuss is food shopping. If you buy healthy foods and ingredients, you will cook with them and eat them. If you bring lots of junk food into the house, guess what? That’s what you’ll eat.

Making smart choices in the grocery store really is the key to good nutrition, at least when eating at home. While some people love grocery shopping (I do and love seeing the new products), others see it as an onerous chore. Picking up a few simple shopping tips, however, can make your trip to the market much healthier.

1. Shop from a list.

Before heading out to the supermarket, plan ahead, and take stock of what ingredients you need to prepare healthy meals and snacks for the week. You can keep a paper shopping list or keep a running list on your phone so you know you won’t forget it. You can also download your favorite smartphone app.

2. Enlist your family.

To be sure your family will want to eat what you serve, get them involved in the preparation, and ask them if there’s anything special they want around the house; keep it healthy, of course. This will help them feel like they are part of a team. Continue reading “11 Tips To Make Your Grocery Trip A Whole Lot Healthier”

Strain of the Week: Strawberry Mango Haze

Strawberry Mango Haze is a beautiful synergy of effects that just happen to be dressed in sweet, fruity aromas.

The “Haze” effects are supplementary for folks looking for focus in a mundane task, and this beneficial tunnel vision mixed with the mid-range stimulation make Strawberry Mango Haze a quality all-day strain.

I Meditated Every Day For A Month And Here’s What Happened

I first tried meditation in my office about three years ago, when a group of colleagues met in a conference room for a quick guided session.

I remember that first simple meditation so well: After about 10 minutes of sitting with my eyes closed, in a circle of plastic chairs, I felt like I’d been in a spa for hours. My mind was quiet and my body moved slowly. I walked back to my desk bleary-eyed and relaxed, like I had just consumed a glass of wine.

Cannabis Product Recommendations for First-Time Consumers

With cannabis legalization moving full-speed ahead, you might find yourself becoming curious about trying it for the first time (or for the first time in a long time). Or maybe you have a friend or family member asking about cannabis as they flirt with the idea of partaking. As a first-timer, you likely have lots of questions you want answered before you pick up a product to try, such as:

  • How do you use a vape pen?
  • What’s cannabis oil?
  • How do edibles feel?

To help you better understand what you should buy if you’re using cannabis for the first time, allow us be your virtual budtender before you even step foot in a dispensary. Each product delivers a unique experience, so let’s review a few different product types based on common concerns of cannabis beginners.

12 Juicy Berry Recipes That Taste Like Summer

Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries — oh my! Berry season is in full swing. From muffins to pancakes to frozen yogurt, these delicious berry recipes make the most of the season’s juiciest bounty.

 

This summery recipe comes from Gina Homolka’s bestselling cookbook, Skinnytaste Fast & Slow (Clarkson Potter, 2016). She writes: “I love bringing a big bowl of these juicy berries to a backyard gathering, especially in the summer when berries are at their peak. This easy dessert doesn’t require any cooking, and is always a crowd-pleaser…My trick to making the homemade whipped cream with less fat is folding in some Greek yogurt, which also adds a slight tang that’s quite delicious with the berries.” Continue reading “12 Juicy Berry Recipes That Taste Like Summer”

Strain of the Week: Green Crack

Strain Highlights

Don’t let the name fool you: this is pure cannabis. Few strains compare to Green Crack’s sharp energy and focus as it induces an invigorating mental buzz that keeps you going throughout the day. With a tangy, fruity flavor redolent of mango, Green Crack is the perfect daytime medication for patients treating fatigue, stress, and depression.

Green Crack has branched into two genetic lineages, the most common of which is its sativa line descended from Skunk #1. The 75% indica variety of Green Crack is said to have come from an Afghani strain, and is marked by a tighter bud structure. Because its name perpetuates a negative image of cannabis, some people have taken to calling this strain Cush (with a ‘C’) or Green Cush instead.
