If it feels like you’re trying to do too many things at once lately, you’re not alone. The average American worker gets just over 10 minutes of work done before getting distracted by something, whether it’s important or not. Multitasking has even infiltrated our downtime. More than 40% of Americans admit to browsing the internet while watching TV, and nearly half of us check our email at the movie theater (not cool, by the way).
Most of us know by now that juggling—or trying to juggle—all these responsibilities at once means that other priorities fall by the wayside. Too often, our efforts to live a healthy lifestyle get swallowed up in a sea of screens, notifications, reminders, and to-do lists. When we try and do too much, we can lose sight of living a balanced life—and that lack of balance makes it all too easy to knock us off track in ways big and small.
Despite our best intentions, as the day wears on it gets easier and easier to make easy choices instead of healthy ones. To reach for a bag of chips instead of an apple, or grab a Diet Coke—or, OK, another Diet Coke—instead of a glass of water.
So how do you keep your balance when it feels like the world is trying to throw you off? A healthy diet, quality sleep, and staying active are all important factors. But there are some other easy decisions anyone can make to imbue their day with a little extra balance, like integrating CBD into their daily wellness routine.
