World Kindness Day - Be Kind
Saturday 13th November is marked as World Kindness Day - it’s great, but really why do we need one of these when we should all be kind anyway, we ask?
According to days of the year the declaration of kindness was born as a collection of humanitarian groups who came together 24 years ago to this day to encourage everyone to be kind to one another. There are a number of ways that people can be kind to one another and being kind to yourself is important to.
Did you know that being kind to others is likely to impact on your own wellbeing? The Mayo Clinic has reported that kindness has been shown to increase self-esteem, empathy and compassion.
Using CBD Products
Some of the people that we assist with their journey to alleviate stress or anxiety are marginalised for using natural products, such as hemp or CBD. We also find this when we are in discussion when we get asked about why we use our own CBD products.
Our take on this is, you are not living in the other persons shoes. You may be well and stress free, which is great and we encourage you to continue to do whatever it is that you're doing. However, everyone should be understanding and kind to those that are going through anxiety or through their own battles. Be grateful that you are in a much better place in your life and if you can, help others around you who are going through a difficult time, but only if the other person wants your help. You can start off by asking them in a caring way or, if they reach out to you. At times, you may be one of the lucky ones who can read that someone else requires help.
At The Hemp Hacienda it is not about selling products, but assisting those whether they are new to CBD and hemp solutions or are long time users. We sometimes find that people can be skeptical about what CBD is and how CBD is sourced or produced which can scare them as it’s the unknown.
If you’re unsure and want to know more about Hemp or CBD products and how they can help you, feel free to contact us. Alternatively, if you want to learn at your own pace, click on our knowledge centre as we continue to add articles of interest that our customers ask us about.
Most of all, no matter who it is, and whether they take CBD or other alternatives, if you don’t understand something, it is always best to ask the person or undertake your own research - unkindness is not tolerated anymore.
So BE KIND and not just on November 13th - World Kindness Day - but everyday!
"Kindness should become the natural way of life, not the exception".
