If that sounds like you, then you need some truly comfortable best-sellers on Amazon — because adulting is hard.
I think the real question is: Who wouldn't want to travel with a buttery soft pillow or a silk sleep mask? And if traveling in comfort isn't your thing, there are also plenty of genius products to keep you comfy at your desk, too. There's a USB fan that sits right beside your computer (yes please), a gel wrist rest, and even a foot rest to keep you productive all day. Literally every part of you can rest when you aren't grinding away at your computer.
There are even some products I didn't even realize I ever wanted. A tool that gently removes tangles without pulling at your hair? Yep. An acupressure mat that relieves pain? For sure. A hat that doubles as an icepack to stave off an incoming migraine? Take my money.
