How I Keep My Energy Up During the Holidays

This post is sponsored by on behalf of PLUS products

I love so many things about the holiday season!  From the Christmas commercials to the festive decor, and from holiday music to the shopping, I soak it all in!  But that doesn’t mean the holiday season doesn’t stress me out more than any other time of the year.  Because it totally does.

While I really enjoy giving gifts to the ones I love, I always feel pressure to find the gifts that will make them happiest.  And yes, I love holiday decorations, but knowing I have to take them all down in January?  That stresses me out!  Plus, it always seems that the social calendar overfills itself around the holidays.  I have trouble living in the moment rather than thinking about how to fit everything in and still find time to sleep.

And the extra clutter?  It makes me feel super suffocated!

Thankfully, this year I have PLUS CBD Gummies to help bring balance to my life!  I’m going to tell you how they give me energy and help relieve stress during the holiday season.

What are PLUS CBD Gummies?

If you think you’ve been hearing a ton about CBD, you’re right. It’s all the rage, lately. CBD is derived from the hemp plant and has been known to relieve stress, decrease inflammation, and improve sleep!

PLUS Products, a California-based company, created a brand-new line of hemp-based CBD gummies. Here’s what you need to know:

  • PLUS Gummies contain 100% CBD isolate, which means they are high-dose.
  • They contain no THC, which means they are non-intoxicating and legal across the US.

PLUS Makes Three Different Kinds of Gummies to Help You Find Your Balance

  • Uplift Grapefruit Gummies – These are the first I tried, because I totally need more energy. With two small kids, a cat, and house that seems to become cluttered in an instant (This literally happens.), I run low on energy. I’ll tell you more about my experience below, but these particular gummies are supposed to help kick you into high gear. Each zingy gummy contains 50mg of CBD, Vitamin B, and less than 5 calories!!
  • Balance Blueberry Gummies – The calming flavor of these particular gummies is there to help calm you and bring you back to your basic level. I know sooo many people, including myself, who need this, whether it’s the holiday season or not. Life is no joke! Each gummy contains fewer than 5 calories.
  • Sleep Blackberry Tea Gummies – My days tend to be longer during the holiday season, which means I have trouble winding down before bed. These PLUS developed these gummies to help people calm down so they can sleep. Each sleep gummy has 25mg of CBD plus 1 mg of melatonin! Enjoy calming blackberry chamomile flavors to wind down before dozing.

Why Did I Try PLUS Products CBD Gummies?

As I stated above, I tried the Uplift version first, because I am totally lacking in the energy area. The grapfruit-flavored gummies totally seem to help get through my day without running on empty. I’ve been tackling my to-do lists like a linebacker on the Philadelphia Eagles. (Philly pride, here!)

Plus, I LOVE knowing the gummies are giving me extra Vitamin B!! If I can keep up with life during the holidays, I will definitely be better off on normal days.

I think because I run low on energy, especially during the holidays, I experience more anxiety than usual. Plus, buying and wrapping gifts that are perfect for everyone on my list tends to stress me out. So I tried the Balance gummies next. So far, I feel less anxious and more able to go with the flow! Definitely don’t want to give up this feeling!

Bonus– These childproof containers look beautiful on a table and are perfect for carrying on-the-go, so I always have what I need at my fingertips!

And while I do tend to fall asleep super easily, I still have nights where I need a little help. If I feel especially wound-up before bed from having too many activities late in the day (very common during the holidays), I pop in a Sleep gummy to calm myself down. The flavor is really relaxing!

Or if I wake up in the night and can’t stop my mind from racing, I enjoy a gummy then. I have found that in either case, I fall asleep more easily than if I hadn’t taken a gummy.

    CBD has been an excellent addition to my daily routine over the past few months. It’s become really helpful with my anxiety, it’s kept me calmer and more balanced during that time of the month, and it even helps me sleep. It sounds like these gummies are a great option, especially if you don’t love the idea of using just the pure oil!
