Sexual Health and Sleep

Woman in bed in pajamasWhen you think about all of the facets of your health and wellness that CBD can support, you may not be thinking about your sexual health. Women’s sexual health can be complex and is affected by a number of different contributing factors, including the amount and quality of sleep that you get. Fortunately, EQ is here to support women’s health with a holistic, science-based approach to wellness. 

 

Poor sleep can result in a variety of health concerns, both physical and mental. A lack of concentration, mental “fog,” fatigue, and low mood can all occur after a bad night’s sleep, and any one of these factors can affect your sex drive. Long-term sleep issues can only compound the problem, leaving you feeling exhausted all the time and impacting your libido. If you aren’t getting the amount or quality of sleep you need and it’s taking its toll on your sex life, try these sleep tips for a better night’s rest.

Set the scene

Bed with sheetsThese days, we do so much more than sleep in our bedrooms. Whether you’re watching TV, catching up on social media, or working from bed, your bedroom can be a busy place! With all of this happening, though, it can make quality sleep, as well as sex, more difficult to attain. Try transforming your bedroom into a restful oasis, somewhere you’re comfortable and calm without the distractions of everyday life. 

 

Some ways you might bring some relaxation into your space include switching from overhead lighting to lamps, introducing plants into the room, upgrading your bed linens, and moving electronics out into the main living space. Creating a better space for sleeping can also result in a more romantic setting — it’s a win/win!

Fine-tune your routine

One of the reasons many people have trouble falling or staying asleep is that we often don’t adequately prepare ourselves for sleep. Going from the hustle and bustle of the day immediately into bed to try to sleep is rarely successful. Instead, try a nighttime routine that you can begin in the hours before bedtime.

 

Everyone’s routine is different, but you might try a relaxing bath or shower, a gentle evening stretching routine, journaling, taking your Sleep Gummies, and giving yourself a stop time for electronics use. One evening routine step you may want to consider adding in is sex itself. We know that sex and sleep are closely linked, and research suggests that engaging in sexual activity before bed may help lead to a better night’s sleep. Sex releases mood-boosting chemicals like oxytocin and dopamine, both of which can help relax you enough to fall asleep more easily.

Help yourself fall asleep faster

Woman Holding sleep gummiesIf your sleep cycle is unpredictable and you find yourself lying awake in bed long past your bedtime, you may need a little extra help falling asleep. Luckily, you can support a healthy sleep-wake cycle with EQ. Our Sleep Gummies use a blend of our premium full-spectrum CBD along with CBN, camomile, and L-theanine to help you get a luxurious night’s sleep. If you’re looking for more immediate, long-lasting sleep without having to count sheep, our new Rapid Sleep Melts are the faster way to melt into sleep. Our blend of CBN, GABA, and tart cherry extract helps make bedtime easy and predictable, and helps you wake up refreshed.

3 Tips to Fall Asleep Faster

Woman in bed in pajamasYou toss and turn from one side of the bed to the other. Glancing at the clock once more only confirms that sleep is quickly slipping further out of reach. Finally, the alarm on your phone buzzes — morning has arrived all too soon. Exhausted, you get ready to start your day after what feels like an endless cycle of sleeplessness, on repeat. If you’ve ever been here, you might be wondering if there’s any hope. Look no further — we’re here to share some tips to help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer

 

Noise Blockers

woman in bed covering face with blanketIt’s no secret that noise can greatly impact your sleep health. Whether it’s the noisy street behind your house, the dull clamor of a TV program, or the steady ticking of the clock on your wall — any noise, no matter how subtle, can interfere with your ability to get a good night’s rest. Even if you’re not awakened by the noise, studies show that background noise still impacts your sleep on the unconscious level by changing the amount of time it takes to fall asleep, in addition to the time spent in each stage of sleep. 

 

Some natural solutions to reducing nighttime noise include turning off the TV, plugging in a white noise machine, etc. However, for anyone who doesn’t have as much say over their nighttime environment as they might like — whether due to environmental factors like a nearby busy street, or a partner who needs the background noise of the TV to fall asleep — fret not; there are other options. 

 

  • Ear plugs — Although foam ear plugs often demonstrate the most noise reduction, moldable silicone ear plugs are also a great option, especially for anyone who doesn’t enjoy the sensation of having an object in their ear canal. Furthermore, it has been shown that wearing ear plugs can reduce noise significantly by 15 to 30 dB, helping to ensure you’re not waking up to each and every sound that’s a part of your nighttime environment.

 

  • Guided audio — Listening to guided audio through a set of headphones is also a great option! Unwinding before bed with a sleep story, guided meditation, or binaural beats can help with the wake-to-sleep transition by promoting feelings of relaxation. Additionally, preliminary studies have demonstrated that delta frequency binaural beats, in particular, may be beneficial for inducing a sleep state in the brain. 

 

  • Soundproofing — Not a fan of having your ears covered while you sleep? There are other options! Rolling up a towel and placing it beneath your bedroom door can be a great way of ensuring noise from down the hall doesn’t creep into your room. If you have hardwood floors or tile in your room, placing rugs on hard surfaces has also been shown to help with noise absorption. 

 

Whether you opt for noise blocking options, like earplugs, or more relaxing background noise, such as binaural beats, these options are often relatively inexpensive and widely accessible, making them a great approach for easing into sleep faster!

 

Nature

EQ's Ultimate Chill Girl Summer PlaylistPerhaps you’ve heard the old wives’ tale “Fresh air brings on the best night’s sleep” and wondered if there’s any truth to it. When it comes to your sleep hygiene especially, a little time spent outside may actually do wonders. In fact, some studies suggest that spending even 20 minutes outside each day can improve your overall sleep quality. 

 

Exposure to fresh air has been shown to be beneficial for promoting a quality night’s rest. Studies show that free-flowing oxygen (like what we find outside) may help to boost serotonin levels in the brain, encouraging calmness and relaxation in the body, which are necessary for falling asleep with ease. 

 

Additionally, exposure to sunlight during the daytime has been shown to help regulate your circadian rhythm, signaling to your body that it’s time to start unwinding for bed as nighttime approaches. In turn, this process may play an important role in attuning your body to fall asleep quicker and stay asleep longer.

 

Not sure where to get started? Below are a few quick outdoor activities to promote falling asleep more quickly:

 

  • Read a book on your patio or under a tree — Fresh air and a good novel is a great way of promoting relaxation!

 

  • Grab a jump rope or a hula hoop and head to your backyard — A set of headphones or a stereo can make this activity even more fun!

 

  • Spread out a blanket and observe the sky for a few minutes — Watch the clouds, stars, and planes passing by for a few minutes to help unwind from a long day at work. 

Crunched for time? If you’re not able to get outside every day, studies also show that even just opening your windows in the evening can facilitate air circulation, improving the overall air quality in your home and potentially leading to a better night’s sleep

 

Nightly Rituals/Routines

woman in bed with white sheetsFinally, the importance of a nighttime routine cannot be overestimated when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep! In fact, studies show that engaging in a wind-down routine before bed may facilitate falling asleep more easily by promoting relaxation and inducing the wake-to-sleep transition in the brain more quickly.

 

As is the case with establishing any routine, the key to a successful bedtime routine is making sure it’s simple, enjoyable, and easy to repeat. Additionally, while the timing doesn’t have to be exact, it’s important to maintain consistency with when you begin your routine each night. For example, if your bedtime routine involves taking a hot, herbal-infused bath at 8 pm every night, you’ll want to avoid the tendency to push back your bath to 11 pm on those extra hectic nights. Similarly, the time you choose to get in bed each night is incredibly important as it serves as a cue to your brain that it’s time to transition into sleep. 

 

If you’re looking to build a bedtime routine and maintain consistent timing, the following activities may be worth considering:

 

  • Enjoy a hot cup of decaffeinated tea after dinner Lavender and chamomile are often nighttime favorites!

  • Light your favorite candle in your bedroom a couple of hours before bed — Enjoy a dash of aromatherapy prior to falling asleep; just don’t forget to blow it out!
  • Try a yoga pose right before climbing into bed Viparita Karani, or “Legs Up the Wall,” can be a great pose for improving circulation and promoting relaxation.
  • Before turning out the lights, grab your journal It may be beneficial to reflect on your day by writing down three to four things that went well. This can be a great way of promoting relaxation while also cultivating gratitude!

 

Rapid Sleep Melts with sleep maskIn addition to the above tips, your sleep-centered products can also play an important role! If you’re looking to promote falling asleep faster, you may consider checking out our Rapid Sleep Melts! The Rapid Sleep Melts are specifically formulated to help ease into a restful night of sleep by highlighting three active plant-based ingredients: CBN (5mg) and a blend of GABA (10mg) and Tart Cherry Extract (12mg). These patent-pending, quick-absorbing sublingual Melts are designed to be a powerful addition to your wind down routine and can be taken in the middle of the night to aid getting back to bed, especially on those extra troublesome nights.

Our Top Tips for Better Sleep

 

Turn off the Devices

Girl scrolling on phone in bed It is so easy to get distracted by constant text messages or endless scrolling. More so, studies have show staring at a screen before you snooze can have a big impact on your quality of sleep. Cora, our Social Media Manager, limits her use of technology and screen exposure at least an hour before bed. If you need to ease into this, try setting your device to ‘do not disturb’ to keep distractions at bay. Meredith from our creative team recommends swapping your phone for a book to avoid ‘doom scrolling’ night after night.

Take some time for yourself

Jamie from our Member Education team says one of her favorite ways to relax is to take a restorative CBD soak with our Mindful Mineral Soak. Also, lock in that moisture with our Nourishing Body Oil! After this you should be feeling calm and ready for bed.

New Product! Rapid Sleep Melts

If you’ve ever struggled with sleepless nights, you’re probably familiar with how difficult getting through the next few days can be. It can be challenging to keep your eyes open, much less get the kids to school on time or make it to your early morning workout class. While it may not be every night that you grapple with getting ZZZs, you may find you need some occasional help with sleeping. 

Rapid Sleep Melts new productWhen you’re searching for the best sleep products, it can oftentimes feel overwhelming and exhausting. We’ve made it easy for you to get the sleep support you need with our new Rapid Sleep Melts! Long gone are the nights when you toss and turn restlessly staring at the ceiling. Unlike anything you’ve tried before, these sleep aids are the latest edition of Equilibria products designed to help you quickly drift off to dreamland.

 

How to Use Our Sleep Melts

Just like dosing with any of our other ingested products, low and slow is the best way to go with the Rapid Sleep Melts. They are intended to be used on an as-needed basis, like on those nights when your mind races before bed or when you find yourself wide awake at 2 a.m. 

Start with ½ of a Melt and evaluate how you’re feeling. If you find that dose isn’t working for you, you can slowly increase to one full Sleep Melt the next time you need sleep support. 

 

To Take Your Rapid Sleep Melt:

  1. Wet your mouth with a sip of water and swallow. 
  2. Place the Melt under your tongue and allow it to fully dissolve before swallowing, usually less than 5 minutes. 
  3. After taking your Melt, wait at least 10-15 minutes before brushing your teeth.

Our one-of-a-kind Rapid Sleep Melts utilize patent-pending microparticle technology to allow the Melt to disperse evenly and adhere to the glands under the tongue for a quick onset and favorable absorption. These tart cherry-flavored sleep aids get to work in as little as 10-15 minutes and last anywhere from 3 to 6 hours. 

 

Ingredients

Our brand new formulation is unique, just like these fast-acting Melts. With a botanical blend of cannabinol (CBN), gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA), and tart cherry extract, Rapid Sleep Melts have been designed to promote calming and mood-boosting effects and welcome a good night’s rest.

5 Ways to Better Your Sexual Health

Sexual health, and especially women’s sexual health, is often overlooked or discussed as a tangent in today’s medical system — unless, of course, you go out of your way to have these conversations with your licensed healthcare provider. Sexual health, though, does not have to be elusive, and is something you can work on any day of the week. Not sure where to start? Check out our health tips below to learn more about how you can improve your sexual health! 

 

Practice self-love

5 Ways to Better Your Sexual HealthAccording to the Brain and Behavior Research Center, self-love is defined as “a state of appreciation for oneself that grows from actions that support our physical, psychological and spiritual growth.” When it comes to sexual health, having a positive relationship with our bodies can create a better experience in the bedroom, both alone and with a partner. 

 

Practicing self-love could include daily positive affirmations, eating a balanced diet (and yes, that includes indulging in your favorite sweets and snacks every now and then), and making time to do the activities and see the people that bring you joy. When we do things that make us feel good, we foster a more positive relationship between our mind and body, which can make it easier to find our groove in the bedroom! 

 

Maintain open lines of communication before, during, and after being intimate

5 Ways to Better Your Sexual HealthCommunication is key to creating a safe and fun intimate experience. Taking the time to identify what you want and need from your partner, and letting them know what those wants and needs are, can ultimately create a more fulfilling sexual experience. Listening to your partner’s wants and needs is equally as important! 

 

Before engaging in intimacy, take the time to have an open conversation with your partner where you discuss your likes, dislikes, and boundaries. Then, during sexual experiences, continue to be vocal about what feels good and what doesn’t, while listening to the same sentiments from your partner as well. 

 

Know your boundaries and feel confident sticking with them

5 Ways to Better Your Sexual HealthBoundaries exist in all parts of our lives, but understanding both your boundaries and your partner’s in the bedroom can lead to a more comfortable, fulfilling experience. Once you have established your own boundaries, you should feel confident maintaining them! Pressure to break boundaries can have a negative effect on our perception of intimacy. However, it’s important to keep in mind that boundaries change, and in order to continuously respect them, we must be frequently communicating with intimate partners. 

 

Understand that everything about your body, and their body, is normal

Growing up, many women experience the vilification of their bodies, from the physical changes they go through, to the noises they make, to the way they react in certain situations. Even as adults, women are often faced with idealistic rather than realistic body standards in the media, which can make it difficult to accept our bodies as they are. Intimate scenes from popular movies and shows tend to show moments of perfection rather than reality, which also contributes to the ways in which we view our bodies during intimacy. However, don’t let popular narratives and media portrayals get you down – all of the fluids, noises, and reactions our bodies produce are not only an entirely normal part of intimacy, but they’re expected! Communication between you and your partner can go a long way toward understanding each others’ bodies and the actions that make one another experience pleasure. 

Manage your daily stress levels

5 Ways to Better Your Sexual HealthMany studies have shown a correlational relationship between stress levels and a fulfilling sex life, with higher daily stress levels associated with lower sexual satisfaction. Therefore, managing day-to-day stress can help better your sexual health. 

 

Meditation, exercise, and maintaining a healthy diet can all help combat stress, but many women could use some additional support when dealing with the stressors that accompany modern life. If that rings true for you, consider reaching for functional and plant-based wellness products, like CBD! If you’re not sure where to start, you’ve come to the right place — we have a team of dedicated cannabis and wellness educators here to help you every step of the way along your CBD journey. You can book a call with us before you buy, or connect with us once you’ve placed an order and gotten started. Wherever you are in your health and wellness journey, we’re here to help!

5 Ways to Curate Your Space for Fall

Fall is in the air, and we couldn’t be more excited. Cozy blankets? Big flannels? Pumpkins? Count us in! Creating a space you feel comfortable in from season to season is a great way to refresh your routine. If you’re looking to update your space this fall we have a few tips for you. 

1. Declutter your spaceWoman organizing drawer

Everyone feels happier in a tidier space, so decluttering is always a great place to start. Whether it’s dropping off that donation pile or simply removing those things that aren’t used anymore, decluttering will make your space feel cleaner and more comfortable. 

 

2. Find a fall scent to make your space feel calm

There are so many ways to bring the scent of fall into your home (candles, cinnamon brooms, or baking cookies, to name a few). The sense of smell is very powerful and having a space that smells cozy can help you feel more relaxed day to day. 

 

3. Make sure your daily habits are visible to you

Notebook with Roller Duo

When curating your space, make sure you’re keeping your daily habits in mind. Your mental space is just as important as your physical space, so create an environment for your daily habits to thrive. Set out your journal, CBD, and other daily habits in a place where you see them every day. 

 

4. Refresh your lounge space

It’s time to bring out those cozy fall blankets and the festive decorations! Stick to warmer colors if you’re trying to stay festive, but lighter colors can always help brighten up a space if you need a bit of a refresh. When adding decorations to your space, we encourage you to try finding them second-hand or checking out what local businesses have to offer. 

 

5. Carve out a comfy areaWoman reading book in bed with blanket

Build out a little space just for you and use it as a place to go reset and relax. This can be your bedroom, a cozy corner, or even just a chair with your favorite blanket. However you build out your space, make sure it’s intentional and a place you can enjoy.

 

EQ University | Creating Health Goals

Journal with rapid calming melts on deskAre you looking to make adjustments to your lifestyle or wellness routine? Creating health goals and recognizing the changes within your routine can be hard to navigate if you don’t know where to start. Whether it’s New Year’s resolutions, summer intentions, or just needing a change in your routine, making adjustments to your lifestyle to better fit your health goals can seem like a daunting task. 

Self-Assessing to Drive Health Goals

Often, it’s hard to maintain health goals when you don’t know what areas to change or where to start making improvements. How do you know what areas to keep the same, where to make adjustments, and how to stay consistent with your routine? Starting with a self-assessment is a great way to not only take an in-depth look at where you are currently, but also to refocus and boost your excitement for your future health goals while making a realistic plan to help you stay on track.  

Wellness JournalAs part of our EQ U series, we have discussed how to start with a self-assessment as well as the importance of a daily routine to help you reach your health goals. But how does a self-assessment contribute to your health goals and help you know where to start in your wellness journey? A self-assessment is a great precursor to starting your wellness routine by helping you to be more aware of your body’s needs. We can help you learn how to use a self-assessment to better understand your daily routine and how to make adjustments to your routine to benefit your lifestyle and address your health goals. 

Oftentimes, we have many health goals that can be connected or seem related. This can make it hard to determine which health goal to focus on or what areas you have seen improvement in during your wellness journey. For example, many of our members experience a decrease in their quality of sleep because of an increase in stress in their life. 

It is in these moments that it can be hard to determine which health goal to focus on or to notice subtle changes as you are adjusting your routine. Many times we don’t notice the changes within our body because we get so accustomed to not being okay or just dealing with the stress to keep the day continuing. Self-assessments can be beneficial in determining what has been working in your daily routine and what adjustments you need to make in order to support your other health goals. 

Questions to Help Self-Assess

Notebook with Roller DuoJust like exercise, changes from your daily routine can be subtle and occur over time within your body. With a regular self-assessment, you can keep track of any changes and be able to better refocus your routine. Below are a few questions you can ask yourself as you’re checking in to determine if you’re noticing any changes:

  • Are you able to better recognize when you are getting stressed?
  • Are you feeling more rested/energized/focused during the day?
  • Are you finding it easier to balance your day between work and errands? 
  • What areas are you finding still need improvement? 
  • Are there any parts of your routine that are no longer serving your needs? 

By regularly assessing your routine and health goals, you are able to provide a better overview of your health goals, how your routine has been supporting you, and what ways your routine can be improved to provide better results. Being consistent and keeping track through journaling is a great way to stay on top of your health goals as well as give you insight into the changes that are occurring within your body and lifestyle. Whether you are choosing to assess at the end of each week, biweekly, or monthly, having a regular check with yourself can open your eyes to what you need to focus on as well as keep you on track toward your health goals.

Top 5 Hacks for using our CBD Body Oil

Have you been looking for a CBD body oil that does it all? Look no further than our Nourishing Body Oil! This silky blend of plant-derived oils and 250 mg of our premium full-spectrum CBD leaves you feeling soft and smooth from head to toe. But did you know this multipurpose product can do so much more than moisturize your body? Our team shares some of our favorite ways to use Nourishing Body Oil, and we know you’ll love them, too!

Woman with curls1. Get shiny, defined curls

If your curls are feeling dull, frizzy, and dry from the summer sun, Nourishing Body Oil can help! Work a few drops of Nourishing Body Oil through damp hair from ends to roots for touchable, hydrated curls. Banish frizz and define your curls with our blend of golden jojoba, sunflower, MCT, and full-spectrum hemp oils, leaving your hair soft and nourished.

2. Avoid chafing

Warmer weather means summer fashion, but higher temperatures and more activity bring the unwelcome side effects of chafing and “chub rub.” A small amount of Nourishing Body Oil on the inner thighs before getting dressed can help your skin slide more easily and help you avoid the dreaded summer thigh chafing. As a bonus, your legs will be beautifully smooth and hydrated — so show them off!

3. Get baby-soft feet

Have open-toed shoes and going barefoot this summer taken their toll on your poor, overworked feet? Help make your dry, cracked feet soft and smooth again with our CBD body oil. Before bed, massage Nourishing Body Oil into feet, paying special attention to heels and other rough spots. Put on a pair of clean cotton socks to keep moisture in, and wake up to softer, more hydrated feet. 

Body Scrub Brush with Body OIl4. Hydrate skin while you soak

If you love the ritual of a long, relaxing soak in the tub, enhance your experience and add moisture to your skin with Nourishing Body Oil. Add a small amount to the tub before getting in, and let the blend of plant-derived oils hydrate your skin. The aromatherapeutic blend of bergamot, lavender, ylang ylang, and Roman chamomile will help you reach a deeper state of relaxation as you soak. To maximize hydration, apply Nourishing Body Oil to damp skin once you’re out of the tub, and luxuriate in your silky smooth skin.

Woman with nourishing body Oil5. Enhance a massage

Why choose Nourishing Body Oil to use for massage? In addition to the incredibly smooth slip this oil provides, our full-spectrum CBD can also help ease discomfort, soreness, and tension. Massaging the oil in helps to increase the skin’s absorption of CBD and other botanicals, making sure you can make the most of the benefits of topical CBD. Combining a muscle-soothing massage with CBD oil can help more effectively relieve soreness while you deeply relax — give it a try!

EQ University | The Importance of Daily Routine

Calendar on table with coffee

With everyday changes come everyday stressors. Between work, chores, and family, having many tasks can feel overwhelming, especially when there are a lot of moving parts to your schedule. Daily routines are a great way to give you a sense of control, especially during times of increased stress. 

By establishing a daily routine, you are able to take the uncertainty out of your day as well as form accountability, allowing you to plan in advance and make time for self-care moments. Implementing a daily routine in your life can create a ripple effect in other areas of your life as well! There are many ways having a routine can contribute to an overall positive impact on your day-to-day. Here is how a daily routine can be beneficial in promoting a healthy lifestyle and well-being:

 

Decrease your stress

We as human beings thrive on routine, and routines can help to support our bodies during moments of change. By creating predictability within your schedule, you are able to help your mind better adjust, causing moments of uncertainty to be fewer and less impactful.

A daily routine can improve productivity, mental sharpness, and emotional well-being. It also can support you in being self-reflective and allows you to see the bigger picture in developing routines organically and to see what you’re already doing or what you might want to add. 

Journal on blanket with glasses and dynamic roller duoCreate time for self-care

With a routine, you can also better structure your personal activities, like meditating, stretching, and journaling, which can contribute to relaxation and decrease your stress. It also gives you something to look forward to, making the process of building a habit and routine easier. 

 

Having a daily routine is about focusing on making the time to get everything you need for the day done in a more organized and, in turn, less stressful manner. By focusing on consistent tasks that you have most often, you are able to have a better picture of your day. To get started on creating your routine, we have some tips on where to start and how to stay consistent: 

  • Start with a regular wake and sleep routine.
  • Set alarms in your phone to keep you on track.
  • Don’t change too much at once; start with small changes.

As you make adjustments to your daily routine, adding in CBD can be a great way to enhance and support your body’s changes and doesn’t have to be a hard adjustment to your day-to-day. By pairing your doses alongside your regular daily habits, you are able to create an association with your CBD products and an easy reminder for your doses. For example, if your health goals are more sleep-related, keeping your CBD in the bathroom and adding your dose before you brush your teeth at night can be an easy way to create a habit in your brain.

Daily routines are a way to look forward to activities in your day and support keeping you grounded during moments of change. Routine helps to create control in your life, leaving you happier and able to focus more on yourself, enabling you to be your best self.
