I can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t have anxiety. It has manifested itself in many different ways over the years, from terrible panic attacks that would leave me crying on the floor, during social events where I would feel out of place, or just in general day-to-day life where I would worry about the past and future. It reached a point where it felt debilitating, so I decided to do some research and learn more about how I could cope. As it turns out, anxiety affects 18% of the population every year, yet so many of us live without the tools to help. Anxiety is unfortunately very common, but letting it disrupt our daily lives should not be.

Aside from lifestyle adjustments, going to therapy, and talking to my doctor (which I also highly recommend), I discovered certain products that were aids in keeping those anxious feelings at bay. Did my anxiety go away overnight? No, but now I can approach it differently. I feel more in control of the anxiety and prepared to deal with the feelings. No matter what type of anxiety you deal with, there are many different tools to help with anxiety relief. These are the products I use in my day-to-day life that help.

Set of 2 Dynamic Roller Duo

Life is full of high-stress moments, from big meetings to first dates and social events. When I am constantly on the go and feel the anxiety creeping in (usually during the most inconvenient times), the Equilibria CBD rollers are a lifesaver. They're easy, effective, and work quickly to help regulate my mood.

Weighted Blanket

A gravity blanket has been one of the best tools for my anxiety. At night when I am trying to sleep and the anxious thoughts begin to creep in, instead of tossing and turning, I lay my gravity blanket on top of me and immediately feel my heart rate go down. A weighted blanket gives the effect of being hugged, which releases the hormones serotonin and melatonin, the best aids for relaxation.

Essential Oils

Certain studies have shown that smells can be associated with positive emotions. For this reason, I use essential oils in a diffuser to help ease anxiety. The oils lavender, Ylang Ylang, and vetiver in particular can have calming effects.

Parsley Health
Magnesium Glycinate

Stress can actually deplete the magnesium stores in the body, so taking a supplement right before bed always helps me sleep better. There are different types of magnesium available, and a magnesium glycinate supplement is a great one for sleep. It is known to have calming properties, but as always, talk to your doctor before taking any new supplements.

The Anti-Anxiety Notebook

When the overwhelming thoughts become too much, sometimes the best thing is to let it all out. I find that journaling is not only a great practice for self-reflection but also a good way to get rid of any anxious thoughts that are consuming you. Taking some time each day to write everything out always leaves me feeling lighter and more relaxed.

Adult Coloring Book

Remember a couple of years ago when adult coloring books had a huge wave of popularity? Well, there’s a reason for it. Coloring is an easy way to distract the brain from all the other stressors, plus they are low-pressure and fun!

Meditation App

A meditation app is perhaps my favorite tool for dealing with anxiety. The Unplug App has made it so I can meditate almost anywhere at any time. Whether it’s for five minutes in the morning, two minutes before a big meeting, or at night to fall asleep, there's a meditation for every type of situation.
