Relax & De-Stress
With things in the world changing every single day, there are plenty of things to worry about. And it’s easy to get overwhelmed and focus on the negative. Instead, try giving yourself a moment (or even a couple hours) a day to let go of your stress and fully relax. It’s not only good for your mental health but taking time to relax has also been proven to improve physical health as well. It can be as simple as lighting a scented candle, using a handheld massager to ease away tension, or adding soaking salts to a warm bath. You can also incorporate an anti-stress supplement, soothing body lotion, or essential oil spray into your daily routine. And to help you look less stressed, try a hydrating face mask or jade roller.

There’s no shortage of ways to stay healthy. Besides working out and eating well, there are also some simple steps you can take to improve your self-care. To help boost your immunity, try a daily herbal supplement, antioxidant tea, or tablet that dissolves in water. Get your morning stretch on to help get invigorated for the day. You can make the task of daily flossing a little less tedious with a sleek (and easy to use) refillable flosser. And personal wellness can also extend to WFH. Wear a pair of blue light blocking glasses to help protect your eyes from too much screen exposure. And to help keep you stay ergonomically aligned while getting work done, try a clever posture trainer and a memory foam seat cushion.

Shop Treat Yourself
Sometimes, it’s nice to treat yourself to something a bit luxurious. (C’mon a little bit of indulgence never hurt!) These items might not be essential, but they’re sure to bring you some much-needed joy. To add a little luxury to bedtime, go for a set of soft and crisp sheets, and a rejuvenating eye mask. For elevating your daily serving of tea, try this chic ceramic teapot and oh so clever cup warmer. A gemstone infused water bottle takes daily hydration to a new level, and plush slippers or cashmere socks will make lounging around the house practically extravagant. And to treat yourself to some peace and quiet, go for a pair of rose gold noise-canceling headphones that are not only affordable but have over 2500 positive ratings.
