A scratch paper art set that’ll take you right back to your elementary school days but also provide a fun way to de-compress after a stressful day.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “Ahhh I love these so much, takes doodling to a whole new level! It’s an anxiety relief like you wouldn’t believe. Plus my kids also get a kick out of them. These are so worth it and I’m going to be keeping these stocked up!” —Katie Toomey

Get it from Amazon for $10.99.


A video game to help redirect your thoughts to something other than your stress and anxiety.

nintendo / Via instagram.com

I’ve personally found games like Animal Crossing and Luigi’s Mansion 3 extra calming during this stressful time. When my husband seems overwhelmed I’ve noticed he gets back into playing Fortnite with his friends and World of Warcraft on his own. There’s a nice element of escapism to diving headfirst into a video game for a while.

Promising review (for Animal Crossing): “I absolutely love this game so much!! Out of all my games, I play this the most. It is great for relaxing after work, a rainy day, or to calm down. It actually helps my anxiety. I recommend this game to everyone.” —Morgann Madden

Get them from Amazon: A Nintendo Switch Lite for $199.99 (available in four colors) and a digital copy of Animal Crossing New Horizons for $59.99.


A “Wreck This Journal” that’ll encourage you to get more in touch with your artistic side, great if you’ve always been intimidated by trying to fill out the blank pages of boring old regular journals.


Promising review: “I’m 17 and I loved this. In the intro it says the page instructions are all up to interpretation, so if it says ‘spill your drink’ or something you can take that literally or choose to paint on it with something such as tea or coffee that’ll look like brown watercolor. Which I love that it’s bizarre prompts but that you have wiggle room if you don’t want to do anything too crazy. I would recommend this if you’re just looking for something fun or if you’re going through some challenges this is really helpful to distract/express/push yourself!” —Marlee

Get it from Amazon for $9.59.


A weighted blanket you can hide out under for a bit when you feel like the stress of choosing what to order for dinner is going to break you — weighted blankets are said to stimulate serotonin which helps you sleep longer and feel more rested.

mybearaby / Via instagram.com

I finally got my hands on one of these from Bearaby and it has been *such* a great tool for managing my anxiety. When I feel myself getting super tense from stress and nerves I take a break and lie under this blanket for a bit and I can feel the tension in my body smooth out — it’s wonderful. Be warned though, I often fall asleep while using it because it’s so calming.

Get it from Bearaby for $249 (available in 15, 20, and 25 lbs and nine colors).


A rose quartz facial roller and gua sha that is said to help alleviate headache pain and increase circulation in the face. I’ve been using mine even more now that my apartment is filled with dry heat.


Promising review: “I LOVE this product. I keep it in the fridge for cooling and then use it to soothe my skin after applying serum to my face. The serum seems to soak in better. It reduced puffiness under eyes, helps with sinus issues, and made my skin glow! This will be part of my daily routine.” —h48371d

Get them from Amazon for $16.99.

amazon.com, Amazon

I don’t think my sister knows how to survive without blackout curtains — she swears by them. Hang up a set of these bad boys and you’ll learn to sleep until noon all winter long. These curtains are made with an energy smart fabric that balances room temperature by insulating against summer heat and winter chills. Amazing!

Promising review: “Exactly what I was looking for. I have 41″ x 41″ windows and I used two panels on each one. Stunning color — I ordered teal for my coral-and-teal color-schemed bedroom. They block out sunlight very well. I’m so happy! Quick shipping and they came undamaged. Good quality, thick and soft too. Almost feels like velvet.” —Sarah

Get it from Amazon for $25.45+ ( available in 10 sizes and 20 colors).


A 300-piece puzzle of a serene scene complete with a 30-day free trial of the Calm app that’ll help you in more ways than one.


With every purchase of one of these already-soothing puzzles, you’ll receive a 30-day free trial to test out the Calm app — an app filled with guided meditations and relaxing sounds.

A roll-on migraine stick to help nip your pain in the bud before it gets out of hand and ruins a perfectly good day.

Katy Herman / BuzzFeed

I actually did buy this for my best friend when she was starting to get so stressed out about her daily migraines. It helped immensely!

Promising review: “I can’t give this product enough stars! I have suffered from debilitating chronic migraines for years. Prescription medications, while effective, usually make me extremely tired and result in rebound headaches, so I rarely take them. This oil blend is especially great for the days when I have a migraine, but am unable to stay home and rest. This takes the edge off the pain enough that I am still able to go about my day and do everything I need to do. I also love the way it smells. I sometimes roll it on my wrists just to enjoy the energizing fragrance.” —Lacey V

Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

Drunk Elephant’s “Been A Long Day” duo which includes a glycolic serum and moisturizer that’ll help your skin recover from all the stress its felt alongside you all day (week, month, year?) long.


I have an array of products from Drunk Elephant, including this set, and can’t help but praise them. They sink into my skin nicely and don’t leave my face feeling greasy after application. I don’t worry about the products coming off on my pillows or sheets either! In the morning my face feels hydrated and that’s already one less thing I don’t have to worry about for the day.

Promising review: “Do not underestimate the Drunk Elephant minis! I get over a month of daily use out of each mini and it is a great way to try very expensive, quality product. 1) TLC Framboos very much lived up to the hype, I layered it on top of my niacinamide at night to help with skin cell turnover and have really seen my scars fade. 2) Lala Retro whip is very rich — just uniquely so in a way that may take some getting used to.” —SephoraUser123

Get it from Sephora for $28.


A 48-pack of assorted teas you can treat yourself to in the morning to get you motivated to endure your work day and to unwind with after a too-long meeting.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “There have been so many times where I wanted to try a tea but didn’t want to commit to a whole box if I end up not liking it. If you find yourself in similar situations, this is a great way to try them out. I was surprised by how many I never had before that I liked. Even for those who aren’t up for experimenting, this at least gives you a good variety just to have around the house. Would probably work well as a gift too.” —Nuzzdad

Get it from Amazon for $14.99.


And a chic marbled mug to sip your tea out of while literally ~spilling the tea~ to your bestie about your most recent date.


Promising review: “I am using the mug for coffee/hot chocolate. The marble design is a nice mix and I wanted a new looking mug for morning coffee. This would be even greater if it was sold in sets of six.” —Cooking diva

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two heights, three colors, and also in sets of two).


An EveryPlate meal plan to help you take all the guesswork out of planning your dinners for the week *and* dragging your butt off the couch to the supermarket when you simply don’t feel like it (it’s cold out there, OK?).

everyplate / Via instagram.com

Each week you’ll receive classic home-style ingredients and easy-to-follow instructions that’ll make you feel like you’re starring in your own Food Network show every time you make dinner.

A calming candle with a blue chalcedony healing crystal embedded in it that’ll look beautiful on your table and help you create a serene environment for yourself.

JaxKelly / Etsy

I’ve been buying these candles for years and always save them for my most stressful days. I have this specific one as well as a few others and have also given them as gifts. They smell heavenly, burn super cleanly, and leave you with a tumbled stone once you’ve finished burning it. Added bonus? This candle is from a woman-owned small business!

Get it from JaxKelly on Etsy for $22.

Amazon, amazon.com

My colleague AnaMaria Glavan spoke highly of this mask. She said:

“The black sugar ‘seeds’ exfoliate the crap (literally) out of your skin and get all the gunk out of your pores, but doesn’t dry it out to the point where your forehead is crying ‘moisturize me’ in a hoarse whisper. Plus, the scent of strawberries actually makes my mouth water. It’s berry amazing. Ultimately, my skin feels smoother, doesn’t feel tight, and looks brighter because of the Vitamin C ingredients. My blackhead-ridden nose is, in particular, forever in debt to this amazing mask.”

Get it from Amazon for $10.99.


And a set of face mask brushes so you don’t find yourself getting even MORE uptight that your hands are a gloopy mask-filled mess.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I love these! I no longer dread putting on my face products. I was using my fingers to apply the product to my face, but it was so messy and got in my nails, too. When I came across these silicone brushes I knew I had to have them. They are amazing and the low price is a steal. These brushes really changed my routine. I use my facial products more often because I’m no longer worried about the annoying mess. The silicone brush is very flexible and spreads the product on my face nicely. Cleaning the brush is a simple task, just rinse and pat dry. Highly recommended!” —Wells Family

Get a set of two from Amazon for $3.98.


A total body pillow because cuddling helps to release oxytocin which makes you feel happy. Time to snuggle up until you feel the tension leave your shoulders.


Promising review: “I have actually replaced all of my other pillows with this giant one and I have never slept better. I have already told my husband that I refuse to sleep without it, ever, and if anything happens to this one, you better believe I will be ordering a new one immediately. I have a lot of trouble sleeping due to a wonderful mix of insomnia and naturally running really warm. This pillow separates my husband and I if we need it since I am pretty sure we are both furnaces, and I can sneak the end between my legs so my thighs don’t touch (I’m sure I’m not the only one that gets uncomfortable from this) but then I also get to sneak my arm under the top part of the pillow, while it wraps gently around my neck. If you get in the right position with it between the legs and around the neck, it even puts a comforting light pressure on your back so you feel like you’re in a cocoon.” —Skc

Get it from Amazon for $57.99+ (available in three colors).


A stylish diffuser that’ll fill your home with calming fragrances — perfect if you’re weary of candles.


All you’ll have to do is fill it with water, add a few drops of essential oils, and enjoy as your room fills with zen-like scents. I recently snagged one of these for my new home and can’t wait to test it out — I’m a big fan of diffusers but hate how stark white and clunky they tend to look. This one will seamlessly fit in with more modern home decor.

Get it from Vitruvi for $119 (available in eight colors)


Zenimation on Disney+, a series of relaxing ASMR-styled episodes featuring scenes from the classic films and soothing sounds from nature. What could be better?

disneyplus / Via instagram.com

I’ve always found the sound of water relaxing — shower, baths, oceans, etc. — so I was immediately drawn to the water-themed episode in this series. Definitely give it a shot! Disney+ also recently released “Disney Parks Sunrise Series” in which, well, you can watch the sun slowly rise over your favorite Disney Park (it’s mesmerizing).

Get Disney+ for $6.99 a month or $69.99 for the year.


A sheer lipstick from Glossier, because (believe it or not) adding a little pop of color to your pucker might just improve your overall mood.


Promising review: “I was looking for something natural and low maintenance, and this is perfect. I purchased Crush — you can layer it if your in the mood for a stronger look or keep it light and simple for everyday.” —Anya

Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in six shades).


An at-home YouTube workout by Emkfit you’ll need zero equipment for — great for helping you sweat away your anxiety in the comfort of your own home. Emily’s many workouts feature fun themes that might actually get you excited about exercising.

emkfit / Via instagram.com

I first discovered Emkfit when I was researching Disney workouts for a previous article (check it out here!) and quickly got hooked. Emily’s mantra is “fake it ’til you make it, wrong and strong,” which is so much more encouraging than many of the other YouTube “trainers” I’ve tried out. I have a longstanding anxiety disorder and have learned that one of the best ways to cope and distract my mind is with a great workout — which has been pretty hard to do during covid times where I haven’t felt comfortable going to a gym. Thankfully I discovered Emily’s videos and they have become both a source of fun and exercise. The moves are a combo of cardio / dance moves (fear not, I don’t have an ounce of rhythm in my body) and are clearly explained *with* low impact options as well. Some of my favorite sessions have been themed around Mamma Mia, Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, and of course Disney. There really is something for everyone on her channel, including a 2000s-themed emo/punk workout. Need I say more?

You can check out Emkfit on YouTube for free or join as a member via her Patreon page for $3+ a month.


An embroidery kit for beginners that won’t test your patience but’ll provide you with a happy distraction and a pretty piece of art at the end of it all!


Promising review: “I was very pleased. Came with everything you need. Colors are beautiful and it’s a great little project to pass the time and ease anxiety. Thank you. Will order from seller again soon.” —Lauren Constance

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

We Are Knitters

Knitting takes a lot of patience and focus — or at least that’s how I felt when I took my first stab at it. You can turn on one of your favorite movies or shows, kick back and relax, and knit to your heart’s content. No anxiety included in this plan. The kit comes with three skeins of petite wool, wooden knitting needles, the sewing pattern, a small knitter’s sewing needle, and an embroidered label.

Promising review: “Perfect for beginners and very easy to make! The year is very soft and squishy. My daughter is going to love this once I finish it. Highly recommend fo beginners or any level knitter.” —HLC0987

Get it from We Are Knitters for $63 (available in 15 colors).

A heated massager pillow anyone will be happy to have after a no good very bad day.


Promising review: “I just received this and I LOVE it. It adequately relieved the knots in my neck, the base of my skull, and my legs. I’m going to try my feet also. I’ve been wanting something like this for quite some time and I’m thrilled with this product. This item definitely delivers. I highly recommend it. The price for this item given the relief provided is wonderful.” —Stephanie T.

Get it from Amazon for $54.95.


A curtain of twinkle lights that’ll make you feel like you’re having a slumber party at Tinker Bell’s house and create a soothing aesthetic to help you relax.

amazon.com, amazon.com

If it were up to me, I would leave my Christmas lights up inside my home all year long. These twinkle lights are a great way to create that look without being overtly holiday-themed. Tinker Bell would certainly approve!

Promising review: “I saw a few pictures online of fairy lights with sheer curtains and loved the look. These lights in particular are perfect for what I was looking for. It gives off a warm cozy glow, and really adds a nice touch of oomph to the room.” —NG

Get it from Amazon for $17.99.


Gold under-eye collagen masks you can wear to treat your under-eye bags while you’re up late stressing about things that probably won’t even happen. Ah, the fear of the unknown.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “These eye masks are absolutely amazing! I have hereditary dark circles under my eyes, as well as slight bags from being a mother of four. Eye creams do absolutely nothing for me, and I gave these a try just on a whim, not really expecting much. But they really work! The results aren’t permanent, but I put these on for about an hour in the evening while I relax and watch TV, and my under eyes are much lighter and less puffy. I absolutely love these eye masks, and I will never be without them again.” —Kate Johnson

Get a pack of 12 pairs from Amazon for $16.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “A very fun coloring book. I have already had friends call dibs on the different pages once I have them colored in. Each animal has their own personality and story to tell, and as you add colors and textures, it’s like meeting a new friend!” —Rachel S.

Get it from Amazon for $8.69.


A hair scalp massager that’ll quickly become your favorite shower accessory. You can use it to exfoliate and deep clean your scalp while applying your shampoo — it’s a game changer.

Amazon, amazon.com

I have one of these babies and it really is wonderful. Not only does it make me feel like I’m really getting in there while I’m washing my hair, but it also recreates that feeling you get when your hairdresser massages your head while washing it. Ugh, so good.

Promising review: “Love this product! About five days before I received it I dyed my hair at home. As some of you may know who do the same, it’s difficult to get the hair dye out of your scalp. I scrubbed my hair for days with my fingers and it seemed like everything was gone because the water ran clear. When I received the product I was excited so I am immediately jumped in the shower to use it. To my surprise a ton of hair dye that was stuck on my head came off. Not only that, but my scalp feels breathable and clean. Definitely not greasy 24 hours later like regular shampooing would do for me. I would recommend this product.” —Lisa Agro

Get it from Amazon for $8.59+ (available in three colors).

A teeny tiny Magic 8 Ball you can use to make decisions on the spot without overthinking it. Should you stay in bed this weekend and watch 90 Day Fiancé? All signs point to yes.


Promising review: “I’m having a blast with this miniature Magic 8 Ball. It sits on the table by my recliner for easy access. With it, I’m now free of the majority of decision-making in my life which relieves me of any stress, anxiety, or uncertainty that might come over me at any moment. I no longer have to take any responsibility for my actions; I can just blame it on the 8 Ball. It fits easily into almost any sized pocket, so, if I’m going out, I can take it along and let it play the same role in my life. This ability to take my new decision-maker with me in smaller form is great! It’s a nice return to my childhood, inexpensive, and a much-needed reprieve from the stress of our contemporary society. Everyone should have one and have some light-hearted fun!” —ALW

Get it from Amazon for $9.19+ (available in two styles).


A supportive bath pillow, a must-have for anyone who desperately needs to soak the stress of their day away (ahem, me).


Promising review: “My husband bought this for me because I LOVE taking baths; it’s a nice way to relax and unwind after a long day, but I’ve recently had some health problems which has caused me to lose a lot of weight and taking baths has become excruciating. Due to the lack of extra cushion back there now, lying back on the porcelain tub was extremely painful on my spine/bones, and I had resigned to the fact that I wouldn’t be taking baths anymore. But, GOOD NEWS, this pillow is a dream come true. I wish I had always had this pillow. It’s soooo comfortable! I could almost nap in the tub (but don’t!).” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in three sizes and two colors).


A collapsible Stojo cup you can use to bring your fave hot beverage on errands then simply squish it down and pop it into your bag without a worry it won’t be able to fit.

Amazon, amazon.com

I have one of these cool cups and have been really impressed with it. I recently used it early one morning when I was craving a cup of hot tea but had to run some errands. It pops open really easily, feels very durable, and keeps my drink hot.

Promising review: “Love this cup. I was originally turned off to it due to the size of the top section, however it’s not as big as it looks online and it’s the perfect size. It will fit most purses but not likely women’s pant pockets. After filling it with water I shook the cup and there was no leaking. Even after I finished my latte and collapsed the cup there was no residue leakage at all. The cup didn’t get excessively hot either. The cup also had mL markers on the inside which is wonderful. I highly recommend this product!” —HR

Get it from Amazon for $20 (available in 3 sizes and 16 colors).


A set of 25 squishy toys designed literally to help relieve stress so you can keep one for yourself and distribute to your equally stressed roomies.


Promising review: “These are SO CUTE! They are super soft and squishy. They have a decent scent. They don’t leave residue on anything when you’re playing with them. They are fun to play with and they help release stress and anxiety.” —Yesenia Cuevas

Get them from Amazon for $12.99.


A 12-inch foam roller you’ll surprisingly get a lot of use of even if you aren’t a gym rat. It’s perfect for loosening the muscles in your back/legs after sitting at a desk all day (or stress-induced tension).


I have this little foam roller and use it almost every night. I roll my spine over it and it releases all the tension in a series of very satisfying cracks. Get one — add it into your pre-bedtime ritual!

Promising review: “My chiropractor recommended I buy the 36” version of this for some daily routine back stretching to do at home. This product has been amazing for stretching, and massaging sore muscles throughout my back and shoulders. I feel very supported by this roller and have had no issues with it thus far. I weigh 200 pounds and have yet to damage this roller after weeks of use. Overall very pleased with this product. And at such a great price, I honestly can’t find a single negative remark to note about it.” —Luke Marrs

Get it from Amazon for $11.13+ (available in four sizes and seven styles).


Velvet hangers that’ll transform your closet from one that says “hot mess” to “oh yes.” Do you hear that? It’s the cast of Queer Eye applauding you.


Promising review: “Love how little space these take up. My closet is pretty small so getting these types of hangers was a must. Clothes don’t slip from the hangers which is nice because with the plastic ones, my tank tops and dresses would always fall off. You can even hang pants too. ” —Amazonian

Get them from Amazon for $22.95+ (available in packs of 30, 50, or 100 and three colors)


A bottle of Mavala Stop with a bitter (but harmless!) taste to help you not only kick your cuticle-biting habit, but leave you with gorgeous long nails. You’ll have Cardi B–like claws in no time!

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “It’s a miracle! I am 45 years old and have tried every product over the years — my mom used to put everything imaginable on my fingernails to keep them out of my mouth, my grandma tried to pay me to grow my fingernails out, but still, here I was at 45 with horrible nails. This has been a miracle. I can’t describe the taste but will just say that it makes me not want my hands anywhere near my face. Yes, it is difficult to eat finger food with this on — I went to Florida recently and had to have my husband peel my shrimp for me. 🙂 But, it is a small price to pay to break this habit.” —Laurie S.

Get it from Amazon for $15.50.

A stainless-steel ring that doubles as a fidget spinner to help keep you calm, cool, and collected in stressful times.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I’ve had this ring for about two weeks now and just had to write a review. I’ve had the nervous/bored habit of picking at my fingers since I was a kid. I can’t remember the last time I’ve not had at least one nail bed torn up and bloody. For people with similar habits, I can’t recommend this ring enough. It’s a great, nondistracting way to redirect fidgety behaviors. I’ve worn it every day since receiving it and for the first time in years I have intact nail beds! Every time I catch myself starting to pick at a dry patch of skin or uneven cuticle on my finger, I rotate the ring a few times and the impulse disappears.” —KGL

Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes 4–12 and nine styles).


Or a more stylish version you can add into your daily accessories — when you spin it you’ll unveil a secret motivational message.


My co-worker Ali Faccenda (precious human that she is) knows I have anxious tendencies and sent me one of these rings for Christmas. I actually didn’t even realize it had a secret message on it (mine says “breathe”) until I checked out the website myself. I’ve been spinning it absentmindedly during meetings and phone calls — it’s quite soothing and comes from a woman-owned small business.

Get it from CONQUERing for $26 (available as a necklace or a ring and 17 phrases).


A massage roller you can use to apply acupressure on the bothersome parts of your feet to make them feel fantastic before heading off to bed. It’s so easy to use you can roll away without taking your eyes off of the latest episode of The Real Housewives.

amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “I’ve been having so many issues with my feet the last few years. My feet hurt so bad, it’s made me become a hermit. I’ve had tendinitis in both and now plantar fasciitis. I get foot cramps all the time. After just one day with this under my desk at work, I feel a huge difference. My feet no longer feel tight and painful. They feel tingly — in a good way. I look forward to being able to go for a walk and not have to rest along the way. I know it’s meant for feet but I may try it out on my calves. I also love that it’s small, looks nice and doesn’t slide around. I highly recommended this for anyone, foot issues or not, if you sit a lot. Nice way to keep the blood flowing when stuck at a desk.” —Vanessa Thomas

Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Crystal Bar Soap

I have a few of these beauties and cannot say enough good things about them. As someone who loves crystals and meditation, these soaps are simply breathtaking. I keep the Spirit of Eternity soap (complete with an opalite crystal) at my desk because it’s so gorgeous and use Fountain of Prosperity at home to wash up. Why NOT bring all the good vibes into your life, right? Each of these soaps comes from a woman-owned small business you can absolutely feel good about supporting :).

A throw pillow case cover to make yourself giggle or provide you with a place to scream without your neighbors hearing. Goodbye, pent-up aggression.


Note: this is only for the pillow case, so be sure to also pick up a filler pillow here 🙂

Promising review: “I bought this as a birthday gift for my boyfriend. The material was thicker than I originally thought it would be, you cannot see the pillow through the case (I used a dark brown pillow). The sewing is well done and the invisible zipper on the bottom seems secure. It fit perfectly over a standard throw pillow. It seems like it will be pretty durable considering it’s for decoration. Highly recommend.” —Ashley Romano

Get it from Amazon for $8.99.


A Two Minute Mornings journal complete with gratitude prompts you can use to start the day off on a positive note (even BEFORE coffee, can you imagine!?).


Promising review: “I am a grad student in a very strenuous program and I like staying busy that way. But on breaks, when I have too much time, I sink into nothingness. I didn’t expect this book to do much, especially since I thought ‘mindfulness’ was some BS. Even if it’s the same prompts every day, it’s what you make out of the book. I like mentally checking off the three small accomplishments I held myself accountable for in ink, somehow the book is better than my Post-it note to-do lists. And the main reason for the five stars, it helps with my depression.” —KellBell

Get it from Amazon for $14.81.


Acne-absorbing cover patches to blend in with any skin tone and that are gentle enough for any skin type but suck the life out of your stubborn zits like a charged-up vacuum.

Soko Glam, Heather Braga/ BuzzFeed

These vegan and cruelty-free patches come in two different sizes, so you can count on them to cover an array of different types and sizes of pimples. It blends it *so* seamlessly — I know this because I tried it out myself! I have relatively sensitive skin and these didn’t bother me at all. I was amazed by how much the little patch absorbed. I left it on over night and the next morning my pimple had very little redness and was much flatter than before using the patch.

Promising review: “I am really incredibly impressed with these. I have not had any problem with them sticking on overnight. They do a great job with the really deep acne that normally causes me problems for a week. Drained one in an hour! They are also very clear. Impressed! Especially for the price.” —Michelle

And a bath bomb filled with a relaxing lavender scent you can watch dissolve into the hot running water for an at-home spa night that’ll help calm your nerves. Take your time and set up your whole bathroom with candles, do a face mask, make it a real self-care event.


These bath bombs include a skin softening recipe and are handmade from a woman-owned small business run out of Las Vegas. I keep a bunch of bath bombs on hand for particularly anxious days. Lavender, in my opinion, is the most relaxing scent. You’ll only have to drop one into some warm bath water and let the bomb do the rest!

Get a single bath bomb from JustBubblesAndBrews on Etsy for $4.
