Basic Introduction To CBD And Hemp Health

A few years ago, I was looking for relief for our situation. My son has Autism and there are times when he gets overwhelmed, stressed, and could have a meltdown. To help calm him down, I started looking into CBD products. First, we tried CBD gummies and tinctures. However, I didn’t see any difference at all. I gave up. However, years later, I was desperate. We’re excited to share a basic introduction to CBD and hemp health!

Explore Your Artsy and Adventurous Side Indoors

When schools first closed, I realized I needed to keep up with school lessons and I wanted us to stay somewhat active. I bought a few art supplies and balls for us to play with! I made a few lessons for him to do each day and even incorporated little games where we tossed a ball to each other. Since we’ve been home for months, I’ve been adding games and trying to stay motivated with everything. We gathered items to explore your artsy and adventurous side indoors!

Last year, I received a few weighted blankets that I was very grateful for. I loved the idea of a removable cover, so I could wash them whenever I wanted. However, I quickly realized what a hassle it can be to remove the cover and then try to put the cover back on. And even when I got the cover back on, the insert would pull to one side or even end up at the foot of the bed. The blanket rarely stayed in place inside the cover!

Toys That Teach

My son is a teen with Autism. He started ABA therapy just before schools closed due to Coronavirus. Since he started ABA, I’ve been slowly adding toys to our household.

I found some cool toys that are perfect for children with Autism and beyond! Let’s take a look at toys that teach!

ABA Therapy 

I am so thankful I found an ABA Therapy company as it was a very difficult journey. I had to find a company that had openings, took our insurance, and served his age group!
