During this whole pandemic, we have all been encouraged to stay and work at home. In the beginning, it has triggered a sense of excitement because, finally, we can stay in the comfort of our homes without having to get up extra early and drive to our offices. As time went by, we start to miss our office chairs, our colleagues, and the office environment. Being at home does have its perks, but sometimes being “too comfortable” distracts us with the things that we would rather do in our houses. Stress, anxiety, and depression can all decrease motivation at work.
With regards to demotivation, CBD has been suggested to “attenuate motivational dysfunction through activation of the 5-HT1Areceptor and elevations in eCB tone” according to researchers. CBD may be helpful in staying focused and motivated at work, especially when work gets monotonous.
Most people have experienced the mid-workday mental slump; that period where your brain implodes and nothing goes in or out. CBD may help battle this by improving brain function and boosting the neural pathways involved in thought navigation. For some, CBD use results in a clearer thought process and increased productivity. CBD helps to improve mood by boosting your natural cannabinoids which impact your mood and wellbeing. Using CBD oil to enhance your mood, keeps you working at peak levels. The result of an improved mood is increased productivity and a better work environment for everyone.
*Note* Before choosing CBD, consult your doctors and be aware of how CBD affects you specifically and its possible side effects before choosing to use it at work.
