When most people hear the phrase “30-day challenge,” they tend to focus more on the word “challenge” than the “30-day” part. And while everyone loves a good challenge, putting too much emphasis on pushing yourself to extremes can make it hard to keep it up long term.
Fortunately, we feel exactly the same way. Which is why we’ve decided to launch a 30-day challenge centered around forming good habits, taking things one step at a time, and creating a strong foundation to build on for years to come.
Starting April 1, the cbdMD 30-Day Challenge aims to provide you with a chance to choose an area you want to focus on and take actionable steps to reach your goals. This includes wellness tips from our team, a revamped CBD regimen, and plenty of opportunities to win free products, swag, and discounts.
And to help you be as prepared as possible once the cbdMD 30-Day Challenge begins, we’re going to take a closer look into why 30 days is such an important time frame for both your wellness and CBD routines, the different “journeys” you’ll be able to take, and how you can participate.
The Importance of Taking CBD for 30 Days
A common misconception about how to use CBD oil is that taking it every once in a while is just as good as taking it regularly. However, this is far from accurate. Getting the most out of CBD requires consistency – just like with the rest of your health and wellness routine.
How to Use CBD Effectively
To use CBD effectively is to use it every day. It’s not a magical, one-time-use, fix-all product, but instead a daily tool to help you accomplish your goals and stay at the top of your game.
Unlike skills that take 10,000 hours to master, CBD takes just 30 days to build up in your system, allowing you to take full advantage of what CBD oil has to offer. And that 30-day window is the basis for our cbdMD 30-Day Challenge.
You wouldn’t expect to become an expert with a hammer if you never use one, and you can’t expect to reap the rewards of your CBD regimen if you don’t take it consistently.
Good Habits Take Time
While CBD may be at the core of this 30-day challenge, it’s far from the only thing we’re focused on. In fact, just as important as implementing a daily CBD routine is making other positive lifestyle changes and trying to turn them into the good habits you need to stay on track for way longer than 30 days.
Not everyone latches onto new habits (good or bad) as fast as others, so don’t be discouraged if you’re still forcing yourself to get off the couch two or three weeks in. Even if it’s difficult, doing something, no matter how small, is a victory and the first step to lifelong change.
And with that in mind, it’s time to get acquainted with the different 30-day journeys to help you decide which works best for you.
Choose Your 30-Day Journey
We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: We don’t like the way 30-day challenges have been done in the past. We’re tired of focusing on unrealistic goals instead of building a strong foundation, and even more than that, we’re sick of these challenges treating everyone the same.
That’s why we’ve taken it upon ourselves to create three unique journeys for the cbdMD 30-Day Challenge to give you control over the products you choose, the challenges you participate in, and the area of your life you want to focus on.
30 Days to Better Wellness
This wellness challenge is meant to help you become more present, mindful, and in tune with yourself. Featuring the CBD Starter Kit, the 30 Days to Better Wellness challenge is the perfect way to introduce yourself or someone you love to the wonderful world of CBD.
This bundle includes some of our most popular products, and no matter what your goals are, the CBD Starter Kit provides many ways to incorporate CBD into your daily life.
30 Days to Better Sleep
The key to better sleep is simpler than you think! If you want to focus on winding down, leaving work at work, and getting the rest you need and deserve, then this is the 30-day journey for you. And thanks to our award-winning CBD PM, convenient CBD PM Softgels, and soothing Nighttime bath salts, the journey just got way easier.
By combining these featured CBD sleep products with a revamped nighttime routine, you might actually be at risk of this turning from a 30-day challenge to a month-long hibernation.
30 Days to Better Comfort
So what if you haven’t worked out since mid-2019? You shouldn’t have to suffer while you’re trying to make positive changes. And that’s what the 30 Days to Better Comfort journey is all about.
This challenge features our top-of-the-line topical CBD products like cbdMD Freeze with Menthol, cbdMD Recover with histamine dihydrochloride, and our soothing Muscle Eucalyptus Bath Salts to help you handle post-workout soreness and comfortably reach your goals.
How to Make the Most Out of the 30-Day Challenge
When deciding on a new CBD routine, it’s important to consider not just what goals you want to accomplish, but also what the best way to take CBD oil is for you.
For instance, some people prefer to take CBD oil tinctures so they can mix them with their morning smoothie, while others would rather take a softgel capsule. That’s not to discourage you from trying new things and taking a chance on something different, but when it comes to making lasting change, it’s best to take it one step at a time.
So choose the journey and the products that you know you’ll want to stick with, because that just makes a major part of your new routine that much easier to implement.
How You Can Participate in the cbdMD 30-Day Challenge
Learning about the importance of consistency and a regular CBD regimen is all well and good, but by now we’re sure you’re itching to know how you can take part and start making changes (or you just scrolled down here immediately because we mentioned free stuff).
But wait no longer and scroll no further, because we’re getting to the good stuff.
Participate, Post, and Win!
While we’re sure many people will prefer to participate in the 30-day challenge in private, those that are willing to share their progress are in for a treat thanks to our weekly challenges. And taking part in these challenges is extremely easy.
