If you’re as committed to wellness and a holistic lifestyle as we are, you probably already know the benefits of enjoying cannabis while setting intentions for a positive and pleasurable experience. We’ve curated a compilation of some of our favorite holistic activities to enjoy while high in hopes to inspire you to give some of these a try today. There’s nothing we love more than to share our positivity with our community.
Looking to achieve a holistic internal stillness? Interested in observing your thoughts and getting more in touch with who you are at your core? Positive thoughts can greatly benefit our well-being, and observing, acknowledging, and respecting negative thoughts can be an enormous factor in our healing process. Cannabis is a wonderful way of clearing a path for this type of introspection. Meditation also leads to a deeper level of physical relaxation, and who doesn’t need that?
Moving our bodies through the poses, or asanas, is a great way to limber up, stretch out, and reconnect. Connecting our movement with our breath can induce a meditative state that has proven benefits both physically and mentally. Practicing yoga while high is a holistic way of releasing a flow of natural dopamine.
3. Practice mindfulness
Mindfulness is known as the ultimate holistic act of being present, and is imperative to enjoying life. Slowing down and making the best of each moment is proven to lower stress. Cannabis makes it easy to take your time when it comes to anything in life. You may find yourself naturally more open to relaxation and mindfulness while high.
Your body needs fuel, and cannabis will often give you the munchies. Many may find themselves over-eating, but this is a perfect chance to practice mindful eating instead. When you’re high, you have the opportunity to enjoy the holistic foods in your kitchen and to focus on being mindful while eating. Take your time while tasting it, describe the texture to yourself, and honor what fuels you. Mindful eating has proven benefits toward weight-loss, avoiding over-saturating your system, and improving your general health. Don’t forget to drink water! Your body will thank you.
Inhale your cannabis, think of five things you are grateful for, and exhale. Focusing your energy on the things in your life that you appreciate changes how you perceive the world and live your life. The more you do this, the more you get into a pattern of recognizing the good in your life, and the happier you can be. Being grateful improves our disposition, mental strength, and creates stronger bonds in our relationships through enhanced empathy and cherishing our loved ones.
