Being a stoner is amazing, we can all agree. However, turning a blind eye to the negatives is not conductive to your productivity. It's important to have self awareness. For me, if I've spent the previous night smoking a lot, especially after smoking all day, I'm more likely to wake up late and feel sluggish. Sometimes I don't wake up on time or never get anything done. It's called the "Weed Hangover." Most of you are familiar with this.
One thing I have found to help with the weed hangover is establishing a routine. CBD is an amazing tool for eliminating most symptoms of the weed hangover, however, many people in illegal states do not have access to or funds for CBD products.
It's important to create a routine to stay productive and not let your love for cannabis get in the way of daily tasks and obligations.
It's also helpful to write down your routine and keep it within sight for the first month. I keep mine in its own bullet journal spread! It takes on average 25 days to create a habit. Consistency is key.
The morning routine is the most important factor in a productive day. It sets the tone of how you handle events and a precedent for your emotional state. However, no one is perfect. You'll miss some days, not feel motivated, or not have anything to do. Don't be so hard on yourself; if you miss a day, try again tomorrow!
Due to my clinical/major depression, it's very difficult for me to feel motivated in the morning, especially if I haven't been sleeping properly. The morning routine is very important for me. Mine changes depending on how much time I have in the morning. As of now, I work from home doing training. If I have to be somewhere early, I wake up earlier and adjust accordingly.
With the night routine, you can be a bit more flexible depending on when you go to sleep. The night routine should be done timely to make sure you get as much sleep as possible. I find that I am more relaxed before sleep and have better dreams. I try to be in bed by midnight and go to sleep around that time. I typically start my night routine at 10:30p.
Establishing a daily routine is difficult to stick to at first. Keep at it and adjust as necessary depending on your needs!
