The New Year is an opportunity to start over. Here’s how you can use it to reboot your relationship with marijuana.
The New Year is a chance to start over. While they may turn stressful, New Year’s resolutions can be used to your advantage, as long as you set some realistic expectations. They also don’t have to be something that causes you stress, like losing a certain amount of weight or accomplishing a career-related goal. Your resolution can be a simple one, like getting more joy out of every joint you smoke.
No matter your objectives, resolutions should be done in a way that makes you happy and fulfilled. They should never add extra stress to your life, or make you feel like you’re failing at something. For those trying to get more enjoyment out of their marijuana use, or simply looking to change their relationship with marijuana, here are some healthy ideas:
Make a smoking schedule
A schedule can help you smoke more or less, depending on your needs. Now that a lot of people are working from home indefinitely, smoking can quickly transform into everyday activity, a habit that is easy to form but difficult to break. While this works for some, the majority of people need stretches of time where they’re sober in order to work and be productive.
Try new things
Another addition to your New Year’s resolution can be to try new things, whether that means new hobbies or new ways to smoke weed. Try making some edibles or purchasing a type that you’ve never had before, or a strain recommended by your budtender that you’ve yet to try. These new experiences can result in great memories and new ways of adding some spice in your life.
Pair smoking with other activities
People are creatures of habit, forming their rituals and schedules without knowing that they’re doing them. While habits are great and should be encouraged, it’s nice to try something different now and then. Switch up your smoking routine by pairing it with new activities, making it into a compliment instead of the main activity that you’re focusing on. Smoke some weed and go for a walk, or smoke right before a workout and see what happens.
Try sugar-free edibles
