A healthy mind makes for a healthier body, and the reverse is also true, as the whole mind-body connection is something that has fascinated me for years. But I don’t just talk about it, I put it into practice, too! Three times a year I have a “mental reset” where I unattach from all social media and internet, and unplug my TV, and sporadically I catch up on books, or home renovations, other times I go for a trip to the beach. The point is to get off the grid and let my brain relax a bit, however I do the same thing with a cleanse and physical reset 4 times a year, where I stop using cannabis, alcohol, and all the multiple pills I take, both legal and otherwise. This helps me keep an even keel, because marijuana is an integral area of my day to day life and I don’t want it to ever be something I simply take for granted. “Too much of a wonderful thing” is legitimately real, and as your tolerance for cannabis grows, smoking it becomes more for maintenance than for its various other benefits. I use marijuana because it relaxes me, and helps me laugh more legitimately and shed off the stress of the day. I also use it because something about lush cannabis helps spark the creative process, so I tend to smoke a lot while I am busy writing. So this is why I enjoy taking a split every so often, to step away from cannabis, guess what life is enjoyable and separate from it, and supply my lungs a rest.
