9 Products to Help You Destress This Holiday Season
Trust us, you’re going to want all of these holiday Zen-inducing pieces.
The holidays truly are the most wonderful time of the year. That said, between gifting and cooking and hosting and endless hours spent with loved ones, it’s enough stimulation and stress to send anyone into a glass case of emotion. Relaxing is much easier said than done, but we’re hoping we can make the “doing it” part a little bit easier. Here are some of our picks for de-stressing during this time of year.
A weighted blanket is one of those things you may think you don’t need, but when you get one, you’re going to wonder how you ever lived without it. It’s like getting a big, warm, soft, plush hug.
You’ve got a million things to do. We feel you. Diffuse some essential oils to clear your mind and bring some calm to your space, making it a little easier to tick off that task list
Between prepping your guest room, decorating your Christmas tree, and setting the tables, you’re going to be on your feet a lot. Show them some love! We like these slippers because they’re comfortable and moisturizing. You can wear them around the house and be productive and indulgent at the same time.
The microwave makes it easy to heat and reheat. But did you know it also helps relieve stress? Pop this baby in the microwave, wrap it around your neck and shoulders, and feel your problems melt away. Or put it in the freezer, if you prefer your relief served cold.
Wine Tool Kit
When you need to unwined, you don’t want to elevate your blood pressure trying to pop a stubborn cork or dig chunks of it out of your ripe and ready Pinot. In three effortless seconds, the Rabbit opens your favorite bottle and gets you closer to precious sipping and binge-viewing time. This kit boasts other wine-connoisseur superheroes, including a foil cutter and wax remover.
It’s probably not often that you get to take a nice, long bath. We highly encourage making the most of those times when you do. We’re talking candles, wine, a great book, all of it, and this caddy holds everything in one easy-to-reach spot.
If you’re going to be your best self, you’ve got to get a good night’s sleep. A noise machine can help you get your eight hours in. It plays a variety of soothing sounds, including white noise, so you can sleep soundly and uninterrupted by zzz enemies like car alarms and barking dogs.
No time for a spa day? Bring the massage home. We love this footbath with heat, jets, and a massager to unwind at the end of a long day … or at the end of all your long days.
My Zen Home™ Yoga Lounger and Recliner
If you want to truly find a moment of Zen, you need a quiet, comfy space. Whether you’d like to log into Headspace and meditate or simply do a little light reading (or knitting that long, unfinished scarf), this amazing Thai triangle lounger is your new BFF. Fold it up to lean against or roll it out for a nice snooze. Bonus: Try it on deck furniture or in front of the fire, and let the sounds of being unplugged soothe you.
