My Experience With CBD Oil and Anxiety | Gifted

My Experience With CBD Oil and Anxiety | Gifted

Depression and anxiety are something I’ve struggled with for years. I’m not on any medication, so I try to help improve my mental health with counselling and self-care. Counselling has been something that has helped a lot, and I recommend it to anybody who has access to it! However, I’m not in counselling all the time. The rest of the time, my mental health is down to me.

I had heard about CBD oil before for things like pain relief, and have only recently heard about its uses for anxiety through Helen Anderson. Not long after, I was approached by a company called Salve Herbal who kindly gifted me one of their 5% CBD oils! Over the last month I’ve been trying out their product and seeing how it would help me with my anxiety and sleep (as I’ve also heard it can improve sleep quality).

Where I Want To Take My Blog in 2019

Where I Want To Take My Blog in 2019

If we want to make a change about ourselves, or our lifestyle, we can do it at any time of the year. However, there’s something really clean about starting afresh at the start of a new year. Towards the end of 2018, I was beginning to feel lost. All that hasn’t gone away with the midnight bells, of course, but I’m determined to clear my head of all the bad thoughts. I want to join everybody else around the world in starting a new chapter.

This new chapter of mine includes some personal goals – healthy eating, exercise, scheduling my day and using my time more effectively. It also includes another over-branching goal: my blog. In the next few months, I’ll be approaching my 1 year mark for this blog. I’ve tried to make blogging work for me before, knowing that it would be something I’d enjoy, but it has never worked out at that specific time in my life. Part of me is glad that it didn’t, and that blogging came to me at a time where I’ve felt more mature and ready for it.

My Christmas Playlist

My Christmas Playlist

Hi guys, I hope you’re all doing well and we’re all starting to get into the Christmas spirit! I will be honest, I’ve been listening to these songs well before December – but for those of you who stick to the unwritten rules, it will be time for you to finally listen to your first Christmas song of the season. So, I thought it would be nice to share my Christmas playlist with you all!

I know everybody’s Christmas playlist is probably the same. There’s only so many Christmas songs out there! It’s still something I love doing every year, and I never bore of any of these songs. I thought I’d let you in on which are my ultimate favourites, too! Let’s get into it!

December Bullet Journal

December Bullet Journal

Hi everyone, and welcome to December! I’m super excited for the run up to Christmas, and I can’t wait to get into the festivities properly. Unfortunately, I have exams up until the 14th, so I won’t be doing much before then. I was also planning on doing Blogmas this year, but I think with my final year exams that’s going to be slightly impossible. I will be posting more often through December, as I’ve already prepared some content, but I doubt I will be able to do a full Blogmas!

To kick off the month, I want to show you my bullet journal spread for December! I missed out last month, and this month isn’t particularly interesting either considering it’s very much to do with exams. But I am pretty happy with the first page, and I wanted to show you guys what I’ve done!

October Bullet Journal

October Bullet Journal

Hi lovelies, and welcome back to another bullet journal blog post. I can’t believe it’s October already! All my woolly jumper and thick tights dreams have come true – I can’t wait to dress for the (finally) cold weather.

I feel like I say this every month, but this month’s spread is simple yet again. I’m not really creative and so neither is my journal. I’d love to be the person who has amazing spreads every month, but I’m a basic bitch. So, let’s get into it! View Post
