        • February 15, 2019 What About CBD?
          What About CBD?

          A few people have asked me about CBD products recently, and although I don’t incorporate them into my aromatherapy blends, I decided to focus on them for my post today because I do believe that Cannabis sativa products are beneficial.

          Before that, let me clarify the difference between hemp and CBD products and marijuana, since there is a clear distinction.

          The Difference Between Hemp & Marijuana

          Hemp and marijuana come from the same species of plant. Marijuana or Cannabis sativa is an herb that is commonly found around the world, although it originated in Asia. It produces psychoactive effects in the body due to a constituent in the plant called THC or tetrahydrocannabinol.

          Hemp is also Cannabis sativa but it is a variety that has low levels of THC. Thus, hemp has no psychoactive effects.

          CBD or cannabidiol is another constituent found in hemp and marijuana, although hemp has higher levels of CBD than marijuana. Hemp also has higher levels of CBD than THC. CBD does not produce psychoactive effects in the body.

        • February 01, 2019 How to Overcome Perfectionism
          How to Overcome Perfectionism

          I am a perfectionist. I don’t think I was as a child, but as I grew older, I became preoccupied with doing things “right.” It wasn’t just about doing my best. Rather, it was about making sure it was perfect, whatever “it” was, a school assignment, a work project, or a hobby. It had to look perfect, feel perfect, and be perfect.

          The problem is there no such thing as perfection. It doesn’t exist. We all have flaws and everything around us has flaws. There is beauty and uniqueness in flaws. But, telling that to a perfectionist only gets them to roll their eyes.

          When we see items arranged in exact geometric shapes, we are afraid to touch them- it’s like a museum. When we see things are organized in a casual manner, not messy, but casually placed, we feel relaxed- it’s cozy. It is in our nature to prefer comfort to coldness.

          For perfectionists, it can be hard to accept this. It used to be like that for me, until I discovered that perfectionism was causing me more harm than good. I am going to share some strategies I learned to ease perfectionism.

        • January 15, 2019 New Year New Habits?
          New Year New Habits?

          Someone asked me recently about my new year resolutions and they were surprised to hear that I don’t have any. I wasn’t surprised by the question. After all, this is the time of year we most see courses, books, and offerings on how to set intentions, healthy lifestyles, and positive changes. It is a new year, and with it comes the opportunity to start afresh. We are also in the midst of winter, which means nature itself is in the process of renewal, dying off and preparing to re-surge again in the coming months.

          I do set goals and seek to improve myself in various ways, but I do that throughout the year. Somehow new year resolutions do not work for me. Perhaps what is missing with resolutions is making them realistic and achievable.

          When I got my hands on the book High Performance Habits- How Extraordinary People Become That Way by Brendon Burchard (2017), I wasn’t sure what to expect. I have seen a few promotions on the book as well as courses Burchard offers, and I was afraid it was going to offer a different way of working on resolutions.

          It didn’t, and I was pleasantly surprised. The book describes six habits to perform at a higher level, and these habits are more about attitudes and approaches to life.
