Nothing beats a long soak in the tub, especially if you can read a good book, sip a glass of wine, and have all your favorite products in reach. You just need a bed and bath tray made from teak, bamboo, or other attractive hardwoods. This beautiful caddy stretches across both sides of the tub to give you a stable surface to put all your favorite bath time items. If relaxation rules the day, just take your tray from the bath to bed to hold your tablet, snacks, and other goodies.

When you want to get in a quick nap or need a solid eight hours of sleep each night, a white noise machine can help make that happen. As it fills the room with a gentle shushing sound, it blocks out all other noises, so you can get enough quality rest. Those sounds are so calming, in fact, that you’re likely to fall asleep 40% faster and stay asleep until your alarm goes off.

Light is just as disruptive to sleep as sound is, so be sure to get yourself a weighted eye mask as well. The heavy beads inside the mask gently conform the fabric to your eyes. Beyond that, it provides all the benefits of gentle acupressure, helping reduce anxiety and tension, so you can drift off without a worry in the world.

As life sends challenges your way, it’s important to remember what you’re thankful for each day. When you do that, it’s easier to focus on what really matters as you keep overcoming your obstacles. So, jot down at least five things you’re grateful for in a gratitude journal before going to bed. As the stress melts away, you’ll find sleep comes faster than ever before. Plus, you’ll wake up ready to tackle the day.

 

 

Punching Bag

If you want to feel stress melt away fast, use a punching bag to release all your frustrations. With each hit to the bag, you can feel the tension dissipate, letting your mind work through the problem and find a solution. At the same time, you’ll get in a good workout that builds up your strength and improves your cardiovascular health. A boost to your stamina, coordination, and self-defense skills will occur as well with each session at your punching bag.

Meditation Bench

In this busy world, carving out a time and place to practice meditation is a tall order. Fortunately, gifting yourself a meditation bench makes it much more approachable. This bench allows you to sit in the traditional seiza or kneeling posture without placing pressure on your knees, hips, or lower back. You can then focus on your breathing and letting the thoughts flow through your mind as you work toward attaining true enlightenment. Over time, meditating can improve mindfulness, reduce stress, and even relieve depression and anxiety.  

Water Bottle

You likely know the many benefits of drinking enough water each day. Something a bit more difficult to figure out is just how to drink and track at least eight glasses of water while handling the rest of your day’s affairs. If you can’t manage to make that happen despite your best efforts, you need a water bottle that’s quick and easy to refill on the go, like the 26-ounce Brita Premium Filtering Water Bottle. Thanks to its effective filter, you can fill it up with tap water anywhere you go ­– and you just need about three refills to meet your daily goal.

Once you make self care an everyday priority, you’ll feel well rested, rejuvenated, and ready to tackle all the tasks needed to reach your other goals. Don’t hesitate to gift yourself all these items and any others you need for your daily self-care routine. You deserve it.
