OK, maybe not a bad rap, per se, but it definitely has a reputation as an activity for slackers. Many people picture the average weed smoker as a guy in his underwear, sitting on the couch, watching TV in a daze. But it's not true вЂ” and if you yourself are a woman who smokes weed, you know better, and have probably done plenty of fun, interesting things stoned. While I've written before about how weed can be abused just like any other substance and how smoking weed can certainly make me lazy, when used in moderation, I find it can also help me become incredibly introspective and functions as a fun aid in getting to know myself better. While alcohol tends to simply make me more outgoing and get me in the mood for trouble, marijuana will often make me feel more reflective, creative, and even body positive. Over my decade of recreational use, I've found that while it is sometimes fun to just smoke and watch Broad City , there are plenty of fun things to do high that also have the added benefit of helping me see myself more mindfully. Not sure what the hell I'm talking about, damn hippie? Read on for nine ways I've leveraged getting high to my introspective benefit. The benefits of coloring are well documented вЂ” a little time with a coloring book and some crayons can yield everything from stress reduction to increased focus. But many of us tend to prevent ourselves from enjoying this meditative and creative activity as adults because we think we've outgrown it, or "aren't artists." Well, here's my rule of thumb: pretty much anything that I used to do as a little kid (including playing dress-up) is still fun. When I'm riding the green haze (a thing I just made up . you think we can make it catch on?), I like to pull out that adult coloring book and some pens, put on some tunes, and go to town. If I'm doing this with a partner or friend, I'm always impressed by how much more relaxed and open our conversation becomes. It's amazing what our minds become free to do when our hands are occupied. This might sound like a horrible thing to do anytime, let alone when you're high; but if you're the type who sometimes gets a kick out of organization, this can actually be a lot of fun вЂ” not to mention, productive.
I find that when I'm high, I'm more easily able to get rid of those pieces that just aren't me anymore, but that I have been holding onto out of guilt or attachment. Sometimes, it's a little easier for me to see things as they are when I'm stoned. For me, that perspective is super useful when it comes to figuring out just what my style is right now, rather than what I might think it "should" be.
I'm pretty sure this has been a suggestion on every single list I've ever written, but hey, there's a reason.
