For years, cannabis has been one of the fastest-growing industries on the planet. It’s helped to create approximately 243,700 full-time equivalent jobs as of January 2020, according to cannabis website Leafly.
Worldwide weed sales also more than tripled to $10.9 billion between 2014 and 2018. Although estimates vary wildly, Wall Street is looking for the pot industry to generate at least $50 billion in global sales by 2030, which offers plenty of promise for the industry and marijuana stock investors.
However, the green rush is limited in most countries by federal regulations, and that glass ceiling is definitely in place within the United States. Read More: www.cannabis4.fun

So, you’ve got a four-year-old child you need to buy toys for, correct? When children reach the age of four, they enter a whole new stage of life and learning. Many four-year-old children will enter preschool for the first time to prep for kindergarten. Also, by the age of four, most children emerge as human beings with their own opinions and personalities, which can be vastly different from their parents.
Four-year-old children enjoy asking a multitude of questions to adults, while they start developing strong friendships with their peers. It’s also at this stage of life when children get pickier about the toys they’ll play with, so you’ll need to be able to assess your four-year-old child’s interests as well when purchasing toys for him or her.

The novel coronavirus
Last month, the word “coronavirus” wasn’t even in our lexicon. Today, through non-stop media coverage, most of us have become self-professed experts on pandemics, the spiky virus and the escalating toll that it’s taking on the world. We’ve also added a new term to our vocabulary that’s currently defining everyday life, “social distancing.”
The world is shifting in an unprecedented way, but we are shifting together. Monday motivation emphasizes the keyword here, “unified,” with respect to the global effort underway to contain this thing. Governments, scientists and health organizations are collaborating like never before, coordinating efforts to bring some stability back to the world. Coronavirus is an equal opportunity pathogen. It doesn’t discriminate when it comes to race or socioeconomic status. Each of us is vulnerable to the potential risk for transmission and each of us has to manage our fear and anxiety through this challenging time.
The fear of not knowing
How you feel is valid. Full stop. Monday motivation recognizes the importance of this and it cannot be understated.
Most of us fear the unknown because we don’t know what we don’t know. And that’s scary for a lot of us. Being afraid heightens our anxiety; confusion compounds it. So how can we best manage our fear and anxiety during troubled times? First, take heart knowing that we are all in this together. Being kind to ourselves and one another is essential to our well being. And we will find peace. This is Monday motivation – we can do anything!
Monday motivation tips to manage fear and anxiety during troubled times
#1 – get fresh air
Options for walking may be limited in your environment and it is essential that you abide by the regulations governing your neighborhood. So, open your window, step onto your balcony or go outside if you can. Allow the sunshine to warm your face and put a spring in your step.
#2 – reduce your screen time on social media and news platforms
Monday motivation is not advocating cutting yourself off from the world. Au contraire! In times like these, we need to lean on friends and family. In this era of social distancing, we just have to do it in a virtual way. Today’s video conferencing options bring your loved ones and connections into your environment.
However, the incessant news coverage and commentary on social media regarding this pandemic need to be consumed in limited doses. Although it will send tempers into high-gear, manage the screen time of your children so that their virtual exposure to the fears and concerns that others are vocalizing now is limited. Even Tiktok, which is considered to be skewed for a young audience, has millions of videos tagged with COVID-19. Limit how much of this content you, your children and your spouse consumes.
#3 – be kind
Understand that tensions are going to escalate with people confined to a limited space day after day. Financial pressures related to loss of income are going to be challenging to work through despite the increasing number of contingency plans that employers and governments are initiating. The stock markets are volatile. Healthcare workers are going to feel overwhelmed and exhausted by the unexpected burden that has been placed upon them. We are all in this together and it’s going to be bumpy, but, if we’re kind to each other, we’ll see that the world is more united than we thought.
Individually, we each need to work towards finding peace in our hearts and minds. We must find a way to come to terms with our situation and find peace with it. It is also essential that we find peace with each other; we are united by the challenges imposed by this global pandemic and together, we’ll get through it.
Exercising can be a chore. We know it’s good for us, and we may do it, but it’s not always fun.
When training gets tough, finding something or someone that helps us get over that motivational hump can be just what we need. Researchers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) have now tested how social media can help.
We wanted to encourage and support people in feeling good about their training.”
Professor Frode Stenseng at NTNU’s Department of Education and Lifelong Learning
The results of a recent experiment published in Frontiers in Psychology show a clear effect of targeted motivation on Instagram.
Over 500 study participants were recruited through Facebook and other online channels. Participants were at different training levels and had varying degrees of fire in their belly, but all of them exercised.
“A lot of emotions can come up when you exercise, no matter what level you’re at,” says Stenseng.
Participants were asked how motivated they were to exercise and how much they enjoyed their training. They were randomly split into two groups.
One group was able to follow an Instagram account called #dinmotivation. The researchers posted motivational posts on this account every three days over four weeks.
“We tried to make participants aware of their own motivation to exercise, and to increase their awareness of why they were training,” says Stenseng.
Participants were then asked again about their exercise motivation and enjoyment.
People in both groups were equally prepared to exercise after the initial four weeks. They continued to train equally. But how much they enjoyed their training was different.
“Participants who followed the account postings developed more positive feelings related to their training. The other participants didn’t,” says Stenseng.
The results were clear. The people who had followed the Instagram postings reported enjoying their exercise much more than the ones who hadn’t.
Following the postings involved spending no more than a few minutes per month on Instagram.
There’s no lack of influencers with perfect bodies who are happy tell you about the joys of exercise on various social media. But whether they can help you to the same degree is uncertain at best.
“Today’s influencers are undoubtedly having a great impact, and this was part of the reason for conducting our study,” says first author and clinical psychologist Silje Berg.
Social media offer a multitude of tips and advice without necessarily having any scientific basis for them. A lot of the research to date has shown how this can adversely affect the message receivers.
“Our study is in many ways a counterpart to this. We wanted to show a method using social media that yields a significant positive effect by relying on scientific psychological theories,” says Berg.
The posts on Instagram were based on self-determination and passion theory. That is, they were designed to give people a sense of belonging, mastery and autonomy. Autonomy should give a person the feeling that what they’re doing is in line with their own needs and desires.
“We want to show how the influence of social media can be positive and used to promote public health – rather than the opposite. It can also inform how we should be critical of the source regarding content that appears in our feed. Awareness is key for achieving the positive effect we want,” she says.
“Watching influencers is probably more like watching TV,” says Stenseng.
After all, it’s fun to watch talented athletes on TV, without thinking that you will ever be as good as them, or that the show will help you get up off the couch.
Likewise, influencers who write about exercise are often top-level athletes, partly because it’s their job, so it’s doubtful that you will ever reach their level. But it can be exciting to follow them anyway – even if it doesn’t necessarily increase your own exercising enjoyment.
The researchers conclude that social media can be a good and inexpensive approach to reaching people with different messages about exercise and health – if it’s done right.
“We meet people where they are,” says Stenseng.
Using social media in a thoughtful way can improve the training pleasure of the individual, and at the same time contribute to public health.
“Several platforms are having a big impact. It’s interesting how some exercise apps promise exercise enjoyment and motivation without having any clear theories for how they want to achieve that. Now our study has shown that theoretical content can have a positive effect, so we should encourage more people in this market to become knowledge-based,” says Berg.
