17 Products to Help You Chill Out When Anxiety Sets In
The last few years have been *a lot* and if you're feeling some anxiety about the state of the world right now, we totally get it. One minute things feel hopeful while every other minute feels uncertain, which can no doubt affect our mood and make us feel extra anxious. There's not a lot we can do about the state of things, but we can do something about how we feel about it. In addition to some tried-and-true breathing techniques, here are 17 products to reduce your worry.
Joy Wellness Journal ($33)
Writing down all your thoughts can help relieve stress (and help you sleep). Find pages for reflecting on your goals, habits, meals, water intake, sleep and the things you're grateful for in this joyful journal.

There is no better time to create a luxurious night routine than RIGHT NOW. Your bathtub is your new therapy couch while homebound.
