Your New Year’s Resolutions from Buds Garage

Hey, hey! New year, new you, right? January is a month infamously known as a time for making resolutions. Wikipedia (yes, Wikipedia) defines a resolution as a tradition in which a person resolves to continue good practices, change an undesired trait or behavior, accomplish a personal goal, or otherwise improve their life at the start of a new year. So, what about you — did you make any resolutions this year? You wouldn’t be alone if you did. Reportedly about 41% of Americans make them, but by the end of the year, only 9% feel they were successful at keeping them. We are big drivers of personal growth without harsh limitations. Let’s look under the hood of some common resolutions and ways to customize them with your favorite cannabis so they fit your make and model (and get this month’s budtender picks below!).

Changing your body

Probably the most often made New Year’s resolution involves losing weight and exercising more. Statistically speaking, those who make this resolution don’t make it to second gear — only about 75% can maintain the resolution for more than a week, and after six months only 46% are still even trying. The biggest reason for failure here is in setting unrealistic goals or adapting an all-or-nothing attitude.

It doesn’t have to be that hard. Small changes can pay off with big results. If you want to exercise more, make it as enjoyable as possible! How about adding a little cannabis to your workout routine? Many cannabis users have reported that they have less anxiety, are more consistent, and experience less pain when they exercise while high. And there is research to show that cannabis can both tone down those racing thoughts and reduce inflammation, which results in a better quality workout. Marijuana can not only increase energy but also make for a more focused and mindful experience, which can be especially beneficial for fitness practices such as yoga or running.

Buds Garage has a wide variety of premium cannabis flower. Sativa-dominant strains are classically recognized for being energizing and uplifting — everyone reacts differently. Buds not only offers fan favorite cannabis but also the best customer service around — you can always ask for budtender picks. Pre-rolls are convenient for on the go, cannabis beverages are a way to stay hydrated and our topicals can be used to soothe muscles after a workout. Consistency is key and enjoyment makes it easier to be consistent. No better way to increase enjoyment than through the use of cannabis. As always, consult with your doctor regarding any concerns. 

Quitting smoking

More than 1.1 billion people smoke world-wide, which makes quitting smoking a popular resolution — it’s also one of the most difficult to keep. Only 4% of those who attempt it unaided remain smoke-free by the end of the year. Although this resolution is one of the most potentially beneficial, smoking reminders aka societal cues are abundant and everywhere. Seeing someone else smoking, seeing lighters and cigarettes online coupled with the very real biological side effects of nicotine withdrawal make it incredibly challenging for smokers to resist urges.

Nicotine withdrawal begins literally the moment you stop and can result in physiological symptoms such as headaches, nausea and affective symptoms such as anxiety, irritability and depression. Luckily, cannabis is a great way to combat all of those symptoms. Buds Garage has a variety of top cannabis products so you don’t have to engage in smoking to get the benefits a good high can provide. A premium edible from Buds Garage not only stimulates the reward center in your brain but allows you to relax your mind and enjoy the moment without the need to smoke. And the longer you go without a cigarette, the easier it becomes. One day at a time.

Saving more money

Resolutions surrounding finances are also usually in the top five. Whether it’s to break the paycheck-to-paycheck cycle, grow your savings or to pay off debt, money is a source of stress for many people. The good news — Buds Garage offers top cannabis products at great pricing. Could you find cheaper? Maybe. But when you shop at Buds Garage, you are getting some of the most unique and finest strains grown from local producers and state-wide favorites — indoor, greenhouse and sungrown options, clean and sustainable options, small amounts and bulk. And we offer benefits like senior citizen discounts to save money and keep you coming back.

Making the world a better place

Resolutions can often be inherently selfish as they are mostly used to improve oneself, but sometimes the resolution is to do more good in the world. This one fires on all cylinders at Buds Garage. Buds Garage loves to give back through a variety of sponsorships and donations – and just recently completed our quarterly adopt-a-street clean-up along Everett Avenue. There are many ways to give back — through time, goods, dollars — whatever works. Find one that brings you joy.
