The Struggle Is Real, But You’re Not Alone

Hey boss babe (hold the babe), are you having a tough time right now? Is anything you do doesn’t seem to be going your way? Is it getting to the point where you just need to break down and cry?

One, I have to say that I’m sorry that you are hurting right now but two, it will pass and you’re not alone.

As I have told you in the past, I suffer from depression and anxiety.  I think it’s important to understand that they are two different things.

Anxiety is the natural way your body responds to stress.  If it’s your first day of work or you have to give a speech in front of an audience, anxiety will rise because you are nervous or you might be afraid.  Everyone suffers from this.  Seriously.

Depression on the other hand is when your mood is depressed and it interferes with your daily life.  When you don’t want to get up out of bed or do the basic things through out the day, it can be caused by depression.

I’ve experienced both at the same time and separately. Lovely right?

I often get, how do you get myself out of these moments when you have the anxiety monster hanging out or when you can’t get out bed.

Depression is a chemical imbalance that I will never be able to recover but will be in a constant remission.  There isn’t a cure for it but instead, moments where I am balance for a period of time.  Knowing and accepting that I will undergo spells has made it easier.  Constantly always being on the move has actually helped me be in remission more often.

The biggest issue I face is anxiety.  Constantly worrying is been a theme but you have to remember, I’m running a brand.  I have deadlines, travel, business meetings, write, oh and I’m in front of 15K people over the internet every single day! Yeah, I think I have the right to worry.  That’s all it is, the anxiety monster is really just the worrying monster.

It’s okay that you are worrying about something because you are most likely passionate about it.  My teacher friends are constantly worrying about their students, anxiety.  My high ranking government boss babes (hold the babes) are constantly worrying about deadlines, anxiety.  It’s so normal.  You are running late to catch a plane, anxiety.  Every single human interacts with anxiety one shape or form and it’s normal!

Now that we decided that the word anxiety is just a fancy word for worrying, how and why should we control it?

I’m not telling you to start worrying about your worrying but instead let’s find ways to prevent it so that you can go on with you life a little bit more at ease.

It’s harder said than done, but I want you to understand that it’s okay to have these feelings.  Allowing yourself to cry and don’t feel ashamed that you have feelings is helpful.  Congrats, you’re human! Your brain can only take so much.

About a month ago, I wrote a blog post about CBD Oil and broke it down in scientific facts how it helps with so many human issues.  Now that we are about a month in and I’m on my second bottle, I’m here to let you know that I recommend for everyone to try!

Please remember to always do your research but here’s the reason why I will promote RevitaOil all day everyday.

NOT ALL CBD OILS ARE THE SAME! I was introduced to CBD Oil about a year ago and I have tried my fair share.  It felt like it was hopeless because I wasn’t able to get off of my anxiety medication and I was getting frustrated that my only options were products of PHARMA.

RevitaOil is an organic, full-spectrum, lab-certified CBD oil. Every batch is tested for purity and we’ve seen amazing results for anxiety, inflammation, blood pressure, blood sugar, and more. RevitaOil is a pharmaceutical grade CBD Oil which in my opinion makes a big difference.  I’ve noticed that with RevitaOil, it can knock me out!  It’s the ONLY thing that can make me actually sleep during the night.  Which is a miracle! When you have better sleep, you tend to have better days.

Another factor that I like about CBD Oils in general is that there are no addictive properties.  When you are taking anti-anxiety medication, you have the risk of being dependent on them.  That’s not a good thing when you’re trying to build a brand.  Ain’t no body got time for that.

I often get asked which size bottle should I buy if I’m first starting out.  For my Florida people, you are so lucky because they have several locations. Click here to see their locations.

This is what I learned.  Although the bottles say different amounts, what it means is if you are going to purchase a 500 mg vs. 1000 mg, it just means the amount of oil you place under your tongue is going to be different.  So lets say I am a person who lives with major pain, if I purchased a 500 mg bottle, I might need two dropper amounts versus with the 1000 mg, I might only need one.  The ratio is just different and can actually save you money.

But what happens if I’m not feeling the effects? I was also suggested to take a two day break. Just like other medication, if you use too much of it, your body will get use to it.  If you’re not feeling anything at all, I would consider going to your doctor for medical assistance.

Take a deep breath because I just threw a lot of information at you.  Basically, I have been living with depression and anxiety my own life and my body is unfortunately conditioned to need outside assistance and there’s no escaping from something that I was born with.  But there are ways to make my life a little easier by accepting that this is my special gift because I can feel my feels and that I can take actions to prevent myself from going down a darker path.

If it wasn’t for RevitaOil, I wouldn’t have been able to continue to manage my stress with the conference and honestly get a good night sleep.  It doesn’t hurt to try this because it’s extremely natural and the staff has a passion to help others.  A little side note, when I went to their store front, the kid who helped me was so knowledgeable and passionate, when I found out it was only his second day, I was blown away.  That’s what you want when you’re trying something to better yourself in life.  Surround yourself with brands that actually care about their products for the good of the world and RevitaOil is the embodiment of that model.  Also, they give hugs!

    Thank you for helping to take the stigma out of mental health. So many people suffer in silence because they think others will judge them. I also suffer from anxiety and panic attacks, and after reading this I definitely need to research CBD oil (and this product).

    Good Luck at your conference!!
