Who else is a big fan of podcasts? Me Me Me 🀚 !!! Possibly you haven’t been able to catch every podcast I’ve been on thus far so here’s your chance to listen in. Not only do I believe there is some awesome & value insight here, but the podcast’s themselves are amazing & people whom I can now call friends of mine. Truly, ever since I started being a guest on podcasts I learned the power of true online connection. It’s easy to like a post, respond to someone’s blog and reply back in an email but nothing is like getting to learn about people’s stories & journey through podcasting. So let’s stop talking & get to listening:

This episode is more than a conversation. It is a powersation of Stephanie and I revealing all of our truths from social media, and how Stephanie was able to create a 10,000,000+ interaction base with a company that had not had a social media in 98 years!

The CBD products I’m taking to stay on track during quarantine & kick chronic pain have worked wonders on my mind & body with added benefits I wasn’t even expecting. I was introduced to Clean Remedies when I didn’t know what else to do. I was experiencing major chronic pain to the point where a daily walk was a challenge. I tried foam rolling, epsom salt baths, ice packs and even had to pop a few Advil (which I only take for emergency situations as this was!!) I knew about CBD, but never really used it so I did some extensive research. Thankfully, a boutique store in my town was open & I picked up Clean Remedies products at Kerwell in Downers Grove.

Side note, with all the changes of COVID the landscape of media & fitness was changing rapidly! I put immense pressure on myself to show up online. I wanted to be hopping on live workouts & prioritizing movement, but I couldn’t 😭. I was completely shocked when in less than 24 hours of using the 900MG CBD oil & the gummies I felt immediate relief. The only word that comes to mind is WOW — it seriously worked like magic! My pain seriously subsided, muscle aches and inflammation went down drastically. If you’re feeling this same way OR you’re having troubles sleeping or feeling anxious I highly suggest looking into Clean Remedies further. 

If you’re anything like me I research the heck out of things before I purchase, join or even collaborate on anything.  Immediately after I started taking the products I was so intrigued and excited about the real results it brought me I decided I needed to hop on the phone with the founders myself. Their mission, story & the personal interactions I had with them are all truly amazing. Having connected with them I grew an even bigger passion & love for their product line because it works! There’s a lot of junk and gimmicky products out there and I am happy to report that Clean Remedies is a product to trust and believe in. Give it a try yourself & let me know your results. CBD oil has been studied for its potential role in easing symptoms of many common health issues, including anxiety, depression, acne and heart disease.

Up your wellness game. Here’s a few more benefits CBD can bring to your life.

  1. Reduce inflammation in your body
  2. Studies indicate that CBD may be able to help with high blood pressure
  3. CBD oil has shown promise as a treatment for both depression and anxiety, leading many who live with these disorders to become interested in this natural approach.
  4. Several human studies have found that a combination of CBD is effective in treating pain related to multiple sclerosis and arthritis.

I have an amazing code for all of you to reap the benefits, too! With code steph20 you’ll get 20% off any purchase. **My favorites are the gummies (eat them like candy!) & the 900mg CBD oil which I use myself daily. 

Don’t forget to join the giveaway happening now at Instagram.com/SociallySteph where you can win a 900mg tincture oil for yourself. It’s simple to enter.

I’ve been meaning to press publish on this post for over a year, yikes!! This is what happens when you spend time going through your notes during Quarantine. Expect a lot more writing & blog posts coming here soon. #YAAAASSS

Now since we have a little more time to pause. It’s a perfect time to start to do more things you love or have been putting off. For me, that’s sharing stories. So, meet my Grandma G. Growing up she was sure to bring me joy while always cutting my PB&J into tiny squares, playing with me on the beach in Naples every year & always putting so much thought and care into her gifts. She’s a wonderful cook and I can say I am guilty of over consuming all her goodies anytime she makes something. She also is a great listener and someone who has truly wanted to see me do all the things I love. I am so lucky to have someone like her in my life. We can all agree she brings everyone together.

I remember one day I was sitting in a parking lot and had some extra time to spare before a meeting when I dialed my Grandma G. We were on the topic of life happiness and I always love hearing others perspectives. This is some simple advice to apply to your own life right now:

These are my notes I wrote down from our conversation & some of my own thoughts I’ve added in parentheses.

1. Try to be happy as always (because it’s a choice & only you have the power to make yourself truly your happiest. Don’t rely on anyone else for your own happiness)

2. You can’t replace fun times (very true, enjoy every moment & really relish it as much as you can. You only have the present moment in which you are in right now)

3. Smile at people when you’re out walking (πŸ˜ƒ this is always a great idea!)

4. Count your blessings (you’d be surprised at how blessed you truly are)

5. Show kindness to everyone (this is key πŸ”‘, kill people with kindness)

6. Treat people the way you want to be treated (nothing more to say here)

7. Set goals and you’ll be happy (goals are what make life great. You may not always achieve the goal in which you wanted too, it might take longer time or maybe the goal changes in itself, but setting the goal is the first step to starting)

8. …. just read the 10 commandments and life will be good
