2. This Gratitude Journal That Only Requires A Few Minutes Every Morning
Practicing gratitude is one of the most reliable ways to turn your mood around, but starting a gratitude journal can feel overwhelming. This gratitude journal, though, makes it easy by simply asking you to list three things you're grateful for every morning (coffee being one of them, obviously). The 52-week guide is accompanied by inspirational quotes, and weekly check-ins give you the opportunity for some in-depth self-reflection sessions.
3. A Bubbly Bath Bomb That Smells Just Like Jasmine
Turn on the hot water and drop this bath bomb in your tub to fill it with teal-colored bubbles and the heavenly scent of jasmine.

4. An Essential Oil Roller That Helps You Chill Out
Apply a little of this relaxing essential oil to your wrists and temples to reduce tension and ease anxiety, or use it just before bed to encourage a restful night's sleep. Made from therapeutic-grade essential oils, the soothing formula has a sweet floral aroma with notes of spiced balsamic, and it's pre-diluted with skin-friendly coconut oil. And since it comes in a convenient roller bottle, you can take it with you anywhere you go. One reviewer writes: "IMMEDIATELY felt the effect of the Healing Oils. Have slept soundly for SEVERAL nights since I started using it on my neck and wrists! "

This reviewer writes that this magnesium supplement is "perfect for those evenings when my battery is still charged but I know it's time to wind down and go to bed," and "I drink this shortly before bed and have zero trouble falling asleep." The formula's star ingredient is magnesium sourced from the Pacific Ocean, which relaxes muscles and relieves anxiety. The addition of GABA, L-theanine, and melatonin work to reduce stress, lower heart rate, and support a good night's sleep. The supplement is gluten-free, vegan, and non-GMO. Add a spoonful of this fizzy berry-flavored formula to a glass of water before hitting the hay. As always, talk to your doctor before starting new supplements.
6. This Totally Relaxing Bath Soak Made With Magnesium Flakes
Forego your regular Epsom salt bath for these magnesium bath flakes. Magnesium can be absorbed through the skin, where it reduces muscle tension, decreases feelings of stress, and promotes feelings of calm and well-being.

Soak for 30 minutes in this, and you'll emerge from the tub feeling like a new person.
7. This Compact White Noise Machine That Fits In Your Carry-On Bag

11. This Rose Quartz Roller That'll Revive Your Skin
This rose quartz roller can help you relax — and make your night time skincare routine a little more effective.

The gel is hypoallergenic, cruelty-free, and gentle enough to use every night.
15. A Negative Energy-Clearing Room Spray
Burning sage to cleanse the air is not always practical, and that's where this sage spray comes in.

Mist this to lift your mood and clear the air.

Coloring can be a meditative practice, and with this adult coloring book, it can also be fun.
