Keeping the Halloween Scaries Away
For those who love all things spooky, Halloween can be one of the best times of the year. Creative costumes, over-the-top decorations, and bags of your favorite candy all make this holiday a pretty laid-back celebration. There are no big meals to cook, no gift wrapping to worry about, and the only stress you should feel is from the horror movies in your Halloween movie marathon. But even a fun holiday like Halloween can use a little extra chill, so we’ve got a few ideas for how you can keep the Halloween scaries away.
Have a game plan
Whether you’re trick-or-treating with the kids, heading out to a party, or staying home to hand out candy to all the little ghouls and goblins, having a plan in place for Halloween night will help you keep things chill and stress-free. Try to account for potential obstacles and anything that might complicate your good time and have a backup plan where needed. Make yourself a rough timetable and a list of everything you need to remember in order to have an eerily easy evening!
Do you find yourself running out of candy for trick-or-treaters every year? Always forget one critical component of your costume? This year, save yourself the stress by stocking up on candy (we’re sure you’ll find a use for any that’s left over!) so you won’t be the house that ran out again. A dress rehearsal for your costume is also a great way to make sure you have everything you need so you aren’t scrambling at the last minute. For kids, consider making a costume kit in advance — all of the parts of the costume stored together in a bin or a garment bag, stored in a place where small hands can’t carry away a critical piece you’ll be scrambling to find come October 31st.
Take your CBD
Even a fun holiday can still be a little stressful. Whether you feel like you won’t have time to do all the spooky stuff you want, or the logistics are proving a little hard to handle, you could probably use a little help staying on track to a ghoulishly good time. Our Rapid Calming Melts are a discreet, easy way to get some fast support when you’re feeling extra overwhelmed. EQ’s premium full-spectrum CBD melts feature patent-pending technology for on-the-spot stress relief so you can have a hauntingly good time.
Be flexible with your routine
Between a parade of costumed trick-or-treaters ringing your doorbell at unpredictable intervals, kids hyped up on sugar and excitement, and last-minute costume catastrophes, your normal evening and bedtime routines are probably going to be affected. Instead of trying to stick to your usual routines, try adjusting them to accommodate all the wonderful weirdness of this holiday. Plan a simple dinner that can be interrupted when you need to go hand out candy, adapt the kids’ bedtime routine as needed, and do your best to go with the flow for this one night. The less stressed out you are, the more fun you’ll be able to have.
Get the most out of this Halloween with a little preparation and a boost to your CBD routine, and get ready for a stress-free spooky night with only the good kinds of fright!
