‘Tis the season…to get distracted from the main mission of buying presents for others and buying presents for meeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!
But in preparation for this post, I looked at Martha Stewart’s Gift Guide email, which is basically great stuff you can buy from her merchandise. Does anyone remember when she was sentenced to jail and stores were having fire sales of her branded merchandise? It was probably high-quality, but I had enough at the time and didn’t stock up. And now? Martha’s back (and has been for a long time).
But then I noticed she has CBD gummies. Actually, I already knew this because I read the NYTimes profile of Martha Stewart, which talks about her thirst trap IG photos and her CBD gummies. It’s a pretty hilarious article. I think Martha Stewart is in on the joke. All the way to the bank.
AND! Mike Tyson has CBD gummies shaped like an ear with a bite out of it, aka Evander Holyfield who actually agreed to team up with him. Jeez, that’s a powerful level of forgiveness.
I have known CBD gummies were a thing, but I am very impressed with the pop culture tie-ins. Honestly, I haven’t done a lot of critical evaluation re: CBD. I feel like there’s so much pseudo-science and placebo effects gimmicks out there that I just can’t spend time researching another one. I’ve heard they’re great for sleep, but my woo-woo approach to sleep involves sleep meditations and yoga nidra. They both really work! But when I recommend to patients, I usually get an eyeroll. Or they try it once with a bad attitude so of course it doesn’t help.
I usually fall asleep within 3 minutes of my head hitting the pillow to the chagrin of my Oura ring. The only time I need some help is during times of transition and stress. During those times, sleep meditations are the best. I really like Anna Greenberg through the Peloton app. My favorite yoga nidra link is here, a free audio file about 20 minutes long, I think. I really have never reached the end of it.
That’s it for a very tangential post. Time for a nap.
