Now that the all the holiday excitement is over, we can finally take some time to enjoy the wonderful activities that winter has to offer. With that said, many of our favourite mid-winter pastimes will look different this year.
That’s why we’ve partnered with Canadian cannabis company FIGR to help you make the most of your 2021 winter at home. They’ve recently developed five unique Go Sessions – each carefully curated to help you choose the cannabis products that work for you: Go Easy, Go Chill, Go Steady, Go Play and Go Elevate.
If you’re looking to build an exciting (and safe) winter bucket list filled with a range of activities from relaxation to exhilaration, inspiration is on its way.
Go Easy: Have an at-home spa day
If you’re in dire need of some serenity after the hectic holiday season, look no further than FIGR’s Go Easy Mixed Berry CBD Oil combined with a visit to the home spa. The best part is you don’t even have to change out of your sweatpants to get there. So find that face mask, put on a playlist of spa-inspired ocean sounds, light a candle and draw a warm bubble bath. You’ll be feeling relaxed and recharged in no time.
FIGR’s Go Easy Mixed Berry CBD Oil is meant for easygoing sessions that unwind and reset.
Even though we may be spending quite a bit of time at home as we continue into the winter, there’s still a lot to look forward to – whatever your vibe!
Go Chill: Cozy up on the couch and watch a movie
Since it gets dark around 4 pm in the winter, there’s plenty of time to enjoy movies or binge-watch the latest Netflix hit from your couch. Grab a blanket – we recommend weighted or electric to really up the cozy factor – make yourself a hot chocolate, pull on a pair of fuzzy socks, and get ready for your biggest decision to be whether you finally dive into Bridgerton or watch Back to the Future for the 100th time in a row. The goal here is to keep things low key and take some time to Go Chill.
Go Steady: Make gourmet s’mores at home
You simply cannot find a better snack than gooey, warm s’mores. They are the perfect amalgamation of salty and sweet flavours, and taste best when you make them yourself – even if there’s no campfire in sight. Grab some graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate and pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. Assemble the s’mores on a baking sheet and pop them in the oven for three to five minutes. FIGR’s Go Steady is all about staying on task so gather up the ingredients and get ready to make your gourmet creation.
Go Play: Go snowshoeing at a local hill or mountain
While we’re being asked to cut down our trips outside the home, it is still important to remain physically active, both for your body and your mind. Although the snow often makes many of us want to cozy up indoors, the winter season offers up unique ways to get active outside. One Canadian pastime you probably haven’t tried is snowshoeing, which offers many health benefits from providing a low impact workout and allowing you to explore areas you may not have access to in warmer months. So bundle up, strap in and just like FIGR’s Go Play, you’ll be feeling connected and inspired by the scenic natural surroundings.
Go Elevate: Host a themed Zoom party
The current social gathering restrictions make it difficult for us to see our friends and family, but with all of us hitting peak Zoom fatigue (it’s a real thing), it’s time to up the ante on your next digital get together. Pick a theme for your next virtual party, such as having everyone prepare an entertaining presentation on an unexpected topic, busting out the acting chops for a virtual murder mystery, dressing up as the cast from The Office or hosting a charcuterie board arrangement competition. This exact kind of uplifting vibe is what Go Elevate was crafted for.
