It’s like everyone you know has suddenly gone mad! You might find yourself getting into bizarre arguments about nothing at all, being unable to finish sentences or barely even able to form a coherent thought. You could experience travel delays, too!
We don’t tend to get all the information we need at this time and communication breakdown seems to be prevalent. Luckily we’ve rounded up 3 tips to help you get through Mercury in retrograde and handle the potential fallout that follows.

Get Back To A More Restful Sleep With CBD Oil
Your sleep may also have been affected by the irritations of the day and disagreements that usually feel minor are keeping you awake at night! Consider using a CBD oil to help support sleep. Nutritionist Alix Woods explains more “CBD oil improves sleep quality and stops the overthinking that may occur in the early hours of the morning. Insomniacs find it helpful and as a natural analgesic or pain relieving agent it supports people in pain to sleep better.
Capsules have a slower delivery action and take up to 20 minutes to reach the desired outcome. However, drops pass directly through the mucous membranes of the mouth, allowing direct circulation into the blood stream and the effect is almost immediate”. Try dispensing a controlled amount of CannabiGold classic 500mg CBD oil (RRP £29.90,www.bionativa.co.uk) directly under your tongue. This oil is the perfect strength if you are new to the CBD world.
Keep Your Brain Sharp with Omega-3 Fats
We know communication breakdown is super frustrating and not being able to get your words out can make you feel like you’re losing it! To help keep your brain sharp boost your intake of Omega 3’s. The Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are critical for normal brain function and development throughout all stages of life. Why not up your intake with a delicious salmon dish from itsu? itsu’s innovative and healthy fast food is made fresh on site everyday! Try their salmon sushi (RRP £4.99, available in itsu stores nationwide), which contains a host of health benefits and is high in those all-important omega-3’s. Go for an itsu lunch when things get confusing and your brain will thank you!
