Self-care means something different to everyone. For me, it's a day spent reading uplifting books and doing yoga next to my Himalayan salt lamp. For you, it might be something else entirely, but either way, the internet has some surprisingly genius self-care products to promote mental and physical well-being.
While the definition of self-care can be a bit broad (ranging anywhere from getting a little more sleep to treating yourself to a fancy vacation), it's really just ensuring that you're setting aside time for you and your needs. Whether you're disheartened by the news, stressed out at work, or feeling a bit overwhelmed, it's always good to take a break. Even the activities that are supposed to help us unwind, like scrolling through Facebook or watching television, sometimes have the opposite effect on our stress levels. More than ever before, I'm turning to reliable products that can pick me up no matter how bad of a mood I'm in.
So next time you're feeling like your tension levels are higher than usual, unplug with an adult coloring book, take an aromatherapy shower, or reach for a portable shiatsu massager. Here are some of the most life-changing self-care items that you never knew you needed, but could improve your well-being on a daily basis.
1. THIS HIGH QUALITY ESSENTIAL OIL DIFFUSER FOR CLEAN, HEALTHY AIR
I'm obsessed with my Pilgrim Teo essential oil diffuser, and I'll probably never own another brand. With a sleek wooden base and ceramic top, it looks a lot sleeker than other diffusers, and it delivers a strong, cool-mist stream of my favorite essential oils for hours at a time. It also doubles as a calming mood or meditation light with two settings, and it's quiet and made from healthy PVC plastic to ensure safety.
