Tips and Lists for National Lockdown? Yes – Do Not Stress!

Oh no… Did it really happen one more time?! Quarantine has again decided to visit us. Now we have to sit at home between the four walls and survive national lockdown’s arrival for as long as it takes. Such a situation forces us to cut all unnecessary social contacts with other people and watch the world safely from our home window. As even the least significant unpleasant situations and twists and turns make us feel irritated, such a routine can make everyone go crazy very fast. It’s a responsible thing to stay at home; however, stress does not add health to our organisms. We love each Biomedicanna friend very much and do not want them to feel stressed, be unhappy, or get sick – we have prepared you a list of seven great ways to spend time at home, which will make you forget about the Coronavirus pandemic and stress at all!

Tip No. 1 – Greet Mornings with Exercise

Getting up in the morning to go to work is hard. In the face of a pandemic, getting up in the morning and then working from home is even more difficult as few steps away, your cosy and fluffy bed waits for you come back. It’s time to wake up! Start each stress-free quarantine morning with an exercise lasting at least a few minutes – stretch stiff muscles, reach the toes with your fingers, do a few push-ups and sit-ups, or jump into pants while listening to your favourite song! Every type of exercise works as long as you are doing it right. Our team advises you to spend some time researching the internet before planning your work-out regime. There are many videos of experienced trainers showing every exercise and explaining its benefits to your body. In case of not so much determination to exercise on your own, find online sports communities, register for live work-out broadcasts, and start shaping your body for after the quarantine now! We cannot imagine our mornings with meditation, yoga, and Pilates!

Tip No. 2 – Have a Healthy Smoothie Afterwards

Sports can be exhausting sometimes; therefore, after the morning workout, you must reward your body with a healthy and tasty breakfast. We all know stories about what foods and dishes do professional athletes eat daily, but let’s admit some of those recipes are pretty strange and require exquisite cooking skills. Nevertheless, there is one thing that neither ordinary people nor top-level athletes give up – it’s healthy green cocktails and smoothies! Such drinks are often thought about as energy and vitamin bombs – mix every type of vegetables, fruits, and berries in the blender and enjoy a tasty beginning of the day. Search the internet again, and there you will definitely find many delicious, quick, and easy recipes. We at Biomedicanna advise you to add a few drops of natural and organic CBD Oil into your everyday smoothie to make it even healthier – regular use of CBD helps lower the levels of anxiety and depression, relieve stress, and boost the immune system. Besides, our best smoothie mix contains frozen bananas, mangoes, cherries, peaches, oatmeal, almond milk, and – of course – CBD Oil Drops!

Tip No. 3 – Play a Little Game with Your Mind

It is easy to immerse yourself in the daily worries when all days of the quarantine feel the same. Medical researchers found out that long periods of nowhere to go, no one to talk to, and nothing to do harms our mental health and makes us lose our social skills – we are becoming less and less exciting and happy, dark, and sad thoughts become our daily friends. In case this happens, you need to banish such thoughts out of your brain and occupy your mind with intellectual games and activities instead. We are best in giving fun and joyful bits of advice – invite your quarantine friend to play some board and card games, do puzzles, or crosswords! Mentioned activities reinforce connections between our brain cells, improves thinking speed, and helps protect the brain from aging up. In general, games such as chess, Scrabble, Monopoly, Risk, Cluedo, Uno cards, or even charades and Pictionary keeps our bodies and minds young by making them work harder than ever!

Tip No. 4 – Grab a Book in Your Hands

A national lockdown has actually saved you loads of time without having to commute to work every day; however, it’s up to you how you will spend them. We advise you to spend some free time with books in your hands - quarantine is the perfect time to actually finish at least several books from your reading list. Reading allows us to instantly travel to different cities and continents, the future and past; those pages makes us fall in love with some characters and envy the others. Most importantly, books keep us busy, and let’s forget about life with a dangerous pandemic right beside. If reading a book is not for you, maybe listening for one is? We advise you to try list audiobooks or various podcasts, which encourages multitasking and fill our heads with more exciting thoughts than doing dishes, laundry, or hoovering the carpets. In our home libraries, you may find some of the best-written works including, To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, The Catcher in the Rye by Jerome Salinger, and many more – start your reading journey to stress-free quarantine with three masterpieces!

Tip No. 5 – Pamper Yourself with Love and Self-care

Quarantine is a tough opponent to fight against; therefore, we have to be the best versions of ourselves. Even if you may not need to meet with other people at this time, you should not neglect the way your skin, hair, and overall body looks. Spending an entire lockdown dressed in comfortable pyjamas is nice but, at the same time, is very unproductive. It is especially important to find a bit of time every day to be in peace with yourself. Self-care is a real stress-relieving deal, which usually includes a foamy hot bath, homemade body scrubs, fancy serums, expensive masks, and a glass of your favourite drink! Here at Biomedicanna, we love our teammates and friends as much as ourselves. We advise you to enrich your everyday self-love rituals with natural essences and oils, organic cosmetics , and eco-friendly solutions as caring for your wellness must not hurt Mother Earth.

Tip No. 6 – Have a Movie After Dinner

Like a cherry on the cake, yet another quarantine day must end with a good movie. Decorating your home to remind at least a bit of a movie theatre and ensuring all necessary snacks are in place protect us all from the stress and makes us doubt quarantine really happening. However, we are quickly brought back into reality as the time comes to choose what we will be watching today. Internet movie platforms and streaming services have a variety of blockbusters to offer, so our job is to make this process easier. We advise you to spend quarantine watching real classics – The Shawshank Redemption, The Godfather, Schindler’s List, or Forest Gump. Yes, these four movies can make you cry and even more stressful than lockdown has made you already, so let’s watch some comedy movies instead. Turn your TV’s on for Life Is Beautiful, Untouchable, Amelie, or one of the newest hits, Parasite – we recommend only the best!

Tip No. 7 – Binge-watch TV Series

Let’s face it - one movie may sometimes be not enough for true cinema lovers. However, one night in the quarantine may be just enough to finish an entire season of a really great TV series. We are guilty of choosing to have several sleepless nights and watching new episodes of our favourite shows instead, too. Taking us to mythical lands, showing us how to fight against dragons and go to planets far away, some of the best TV series will take more than several nights to finish. We personally love Game of Thrones, Suits, Stranger Things, The Big Bang Theory, and, of course, legendary sitcom Friends! Real and sincere laughter, best actors, and unexpected turns of events are what you need for a fun quarantine experience and levels of stress dropping down in the blink of an eye.

Seven tips in one day can be too much if you have a busy schedule, have to work, or study for the larger part of your average quarantine day. We advise you to try at least advice every day of the week – stay safe, healthy, and stress-free!


Christmas Gift Shopping – Rewarding Everyone With Health

We dare you to take a look at the calendar, in which you will see that there are less than 50 days left till the most wonderful time of the year – Christmas! Joyful and legendary songs sound not only in our homes but also in the shopping centres where we look for Christmas presents for our family, friends, and, of course, ourselves – as Santa rewards only the best, some of us must themselves take care of the gifts. It might be easy to choose a gift for ourselves, but what is precious enough to reward parents, siblings, best friends, or loved ones? The best gift idea is health! We made a list of physical and mental health-enhancing gifts to save you some time and money as all of the presents that we advise you to buy has great and heartfelt do-it-yourself alternatives. Christmas gift shopping starts now!

Idea No. 1 – Christmas Decorations

What is more Christmassy than snow, baubles, wreaths, and pine trees? Well, nothing beats pretty Christmas decorations and blinking lights, and it’s never too early to start filling your home and heart with festive magic. However, store-bought Christmas decorations are quite expensive, but the good news is that you can invite your loved ones over for a little cosy decorations workshop! Any DIY project works very well as mental and physical therapy – picking and gluing small bits and pieces improves hand motility and helps people having problems with concentration. The little get-together will allow you not only to catch up with old friends, create handcrafted gifts but also reuse things found around the house as such activities encourage eco-friendliness!

Idea No. 2 – Vitamins and Supplements

Vitamins and immune-boosting food supplements are one of the most popular Christmas gifts ideas. However, what helps one, may not be suitable for another person, so we advise you to get rid of the idea of gifting pharmacy-bought vitamins and opt-out for natural goods – foods and drinks that are considered vitamin bombs. Including different types of meats, grain, vegetables, and fruits into one’s daily diet can strengthen their immune system and overall health more than any medicine. We encourage you to invite your loved one to dinner or organise a cooking workshop, in which you will be able to cook and taste ingredients and dishes you have never tried before. If you are on the lookout for more modest food-related gifts, a recipe book is always a good idea!

Idea No. 3 – Spa Experience

Show us a person who would decline a weekend getaway offer! There is none! As everyone wants to run away from their problems sometimes, weekend trips to various resorts, spa centres, and hotels are very high on demand. It is a great gift idea too! However, we advise you to gift a voucher for such pleasures instead of booking your loved one’s weekend before even asking about his or her availability. In case you cannot leave home even for a weekend, why not enjoy the luxuries of a spa in your bathroom? Online or in small shops, you can find loads of different scented bath bombs or foams, scrubs, masks, and many more quality spa attributes. You can even try to make them yourself but before, make sure products and recipes, which you are using, are safe both for the environment and yourself! Make it, pack it, and gift it to the ones you care about the most!

Idea No. 4 – Quality Sleep

Humans spend one-third of their lives sleeping; thus, it would be unfortunate to sleep uncomfortable. Gifting a quality sleep experience to someone for Christmas does not mean inviting them over to try your mattress or a pillow, but it is okay to consider buying such gifts only if you know your loved ones lack them. However, great rest does not only depend on expensive sleeping equipment. We advise you to encourage your relatives not to use mobile phones in bed and read a book instead of endlessly counting sheep. As insomnia takes the happiness out of many people's lives, you can help your loved ones solve this problem by gifting CBD Oil Drops to improve their sleep quality and overall health. Do not forget to try these ideas yourself - you should lead by example!

Idea No. 5 – Romantic Date Experience

Admit it, Christmas is a bit too cold for counting stars, and with an ongoing situation, any ideas for a nice date involving crowded places are not safe as well. Therefore, there is no better place for a romantic date night than your home. Most of the time, cosy moments with your beloved don’t have to be pricey as the best memories require only creativity and time. Recreate your first meal together and prepare a three-course dinner, including fancy desserts or fill your living room with pillows and blankets to create a movie theatre. For this season, we advise you to gift a Christmas karaoke experience or a set of scratch cards with the names of best movies, meals, or games written underneath! Remember, any date night is perfect when the feelings are real – consider a healthy relationship a top priority and the best gift of all times!

Idea No. 6 – Board Games, Puzzles, and Books

With plenty of time on our hands, playing board games, reading books, and completing intricate puzzles helps us survive those long and cold winter evenings and relax. However, the majority of puzzles and books are interesting for only once, and while board games are fun to play with friends and relatives, they can also become boring after several plays. Buying and gifting new ones is always a great idea; however, they can empty your wallet if you decide to send them to all people on your Christmas list. We advise you to create personalised memory books, photo albums, or writing a story about how you met the exact person, how happy you are to have them in your life. You can also try to create a small-scale treasure hunting experience with a nice little gift at the end – the journey to the treasure itself is the greatest gift!

Idea No. 7 – Gym Subscription

Next Monday? Next year? Is the person you know speaks about the sports and wellness of their body using these phrases? Why not giving them sports equipment for Christmas so they can start exercising immediately, you may think? Do exactly that, and you will never be more wrong in your life. Committing to everyday gym sessions and exercises is hard; thus, receiving any sport-related gifts, except for tickets to a match, can be understood as an insult. Here as well, you should lead by example – we advise you to invite the person to join you for a quick jog in a park or a hike in a forest. Sports and other physical activities will be a great gift to yourself, but you would receive much more than that – it’s the relationship with another person that you get through doing sports together.

Idea No. 8 – Therapy and Meditation Sessions

Christmas is a time of gathering, sharing stories, and listening, what funny has happened to others throughout the year. However, the most important things are the ones your body is trying to tell you; thus, some quality self-care moments will cheer your body and soul the most. We advise you to gift such joy to others as well – invite them to paint therapy classes, meditations workshops, or reward them with subscriptions for the best mobile relaxation applications there are. Such gifts will help your loved ones relax, calm down, and reduce levels of stress. Besides, regular use of CBD oil also helps relieve anxiety and lessen depression. Well, as such gifts can sometimes turn out to be greater than your budget, use free online services, and introduce your friends and family to them!

Idea No. 9 – Themed Gift Boxes

Is there a person among your friends to which you find almost impossible to choose the right gift? You will never miss rewarding them with a unique and universal gift set, which represents their personality traits, lifestyle, and favourite hobbies. As a great number of small presents and things can be put into one gift box, try fitting love, happiness, and health there as well. For this Christmas, we have created four different sets of health-enhancing , immune-strengthening , skin-moisturising , and muscle-relaxing gifts, which will make your loved one incredibly happy. All four gift boxes include CBD Oil Drops Raw and other CBD healthy goods such as Silk Balm, Face and Body Cream, or Cooling Gel. We guarantee that a healthy body, mind, and overall wellness are the greatest gifts that will wait for you and your loved one underneath the Christmas tree!

Idea No. 10 – Attention and Warmth

Besides all other gift ideas on the list, we would be very wrong excluded this one from the list – a sincere and attentive conversation with your relatives and friends is sometimes all they need! Christmas is about love, support, warmth, and real connection with the ones you love the most in your entire life. Conversation with a cup of tea may last till the evening; however, such moments are irreplaceable for talking things that bother out, discussing problems and concerns, looking for solutions, and pieces of advice. We do not seek to belittle the work of professional psychotherapists and psychologists, but firstly, it is worth to speak openly about mental and physical health with people that are closest to your heart.

Gifts are traditional attributes when celebrating many different occasions: birthdays, anniversaries, achievements, etc., but spending ridiculous amounts of money may still not buy the things that will cheer their souls up. This Christmas, reward your loved ones with gifts that matter the most – health.


10 Tips to Help You Survive the Autumn!

As we are saying farewell to summer, autumn is knocking on our doors, ready to enter and enrich our lives with a stunning palette of colour-changing leaves. Even though this situation may seem like coming straight out of fairy tale, heavy rains, strong winds, shorter, darker and colder days reveals the real face of the autumn season. Various illnesses and hardships follow the gloomy weather and threaten to mess up our lives even more. Only the ones who prepare for such challenges may resist them, but how to achieve that? Read carefully – we have prepared a lecture for you about immune system strengthening techniques, self-care, and, of course, pumpkins!

Tip No. 1 – Appropriate clothing

Autumn really gets onto our nerves as weather conditions often change every minute and an uncountable number of times throughout the day. The combination of umbrella and raincoat must become your new best friend this season. Water-resistant footwear will allow you to spend the autumn jumping in puddles like no big deal, the thicker jacket will protect from chilly winds, and soft scarf will keep you warm and cosy. Don’t blame the weather – there is nothing wrong with him, there are only wrong clothing choices!

Tip No. 2 – Skincare

The hot summer season has dried out our skin, which makes it even more vulnerable to cold autumn winds. Steer clear of this unpleasant feeling by using lip balms to avoid cracked and sore lips, regularly use moisturizing face masks to ensure skin hydration, and reward your hands with rich cream to protect them from skin irritation. Consider yourself lucky as we will soon offer you a new product from the skincare line to help you survive the autumn. More information to follow – don’t forget to take care of your skin while you wait!

Tip No. 3 – Relaxation

As autumn distresses often leads to depression, self-love is the best way to avoid it. Meditation is proved helpful as it reduces the levels of stress and anxiety. Of course, a little herbal nudge to your organism will not only help to have calmer thoughts but strengthen the immune system as well. However, our bodies can be as tired as our thoughts, but there is nothing a little home spa can’t fix! Incense, chill music, flower petals, hot foam bath, and massages from your loved one will comfort you during the darkest hours of autumn and inspire for new challenges.

Tip No. 4 – Home decoration

To prepare for autumn means to prepare not only our souls and bodies but also the environment around the home. Home décor does not mean hanging paper bat cut-outs or putting a carved pumpkin in every corner of your house even though Halloween is just around the corner. Sometimes little cinnamon, apples or vanilla-scented candle, thick blanket, lighted fireplace, or a bouquet of seasonal flowers is all that you need to surround yourself with pleasant autumn emotions.

Tip No. 5 – Hobbies

Today is the day to start thinking of how you will spend dark and cold autumn evenings. Self-care begins with quality time-spending techniques and smart ways to direct one’s attention further from seasonal distresses. Consider reading a book, watching a movie or TV series, handcrafting, doing crosswords, or any other kind of puzzles. Autumn is a perfect time to start getting ready for the summer bikini season – pay a visit to the gym once in a while!

Tip No. 6 – Food

The autumn is the season of harvesting everything that has grown in our gardens or forests throughout the summer. Many different foods add up to benefiting our organisms, so it would be a complete waste of products not to eat them or store them for winter. For example, pumpkins are considered full of nutrients that strengthen the immune system while including mushrooms in your daily diet increase bodies’ ability to fights various illnesses.

Tip No. 7 – Active lifestyle

It is easy to grow lazy when the rain is pouring down outside your room window. Regular activities such as jogging, hiking, cycling, or gymnastics contribute to one’s well-being and increase the chances to survive the autumn. We strongly recommend you going outside, enjoying the last bits of sun, exercising out in the fresh air, and appreciating the beauty of changing nature. As autumn comes only once a year, there is no better opportunity than celebrate it actively!

Tip No. 8 – Vitamins

Even though healthy eating habits and an active lifestyle are considered secrets to overall well-being, strong immune system, and autumn survival, sometimes that is not enough. Our bodies are not capable of producing certain kinds of vitamins; hence, their benefits are available only thanks to supplements. Beta-glucans are one of the smartest ways to strengthen the immune system and avoid moments when plans get messed by health problems caused by harsh weather. As beta-glucans have even more beneficial properties,  specialists advise using them throughout the whole year!

Tip No. 9 – Quality sleep

The autumn means coming back to school, work or university, thus saying sad goodbyes to happy summer holiday moments. Such time often results in higher stress and anxiety levels, which, in turn, negatively affects the whole body starting with memory and finishing with body motility capabilities. Besides that, self-care starts with a good night sleep, so quality rest must be everyone’s top priority this season.

Tip No. 10 – Daily routine

As autumn sometimes may cause a disbalance in lives and organisms, creating a daily routine helps people feel like true masters of their lives. Mobile calendars or cute little notebooks and planners ensure that one’s daily tasks get completed in time, and there is no chance left for autumn distresses to interfere with reaching every goal possible. You cannot imagine how much free time you have in a day to spend it for self-love and getting rid of autumn troubles!

We all are stronger together – the same applies to autumn survival as the chance of your triumph against this gloomy yet cosy season significantly increases once you involve as many tips as you can in your daily life. Conquering the autumn has never been so easy!
