Living with anxiety is not easy, that’s no secret. When you’re anxiously drifting into another overthinking-worry-anxiety attack mode, it gets even harder.

But thankfully, we live in times when getting helpful relaxing things and gadgets is as simple as ordering something from Amazon. This list will show you 10 wonderful items that will make your living with anxiety a little bit easier.

And in case you want to get them yourself, I saved you some time and included straight product links to Amazon where I’ve found all of this helpful stuff.

Let’s go!

 

10 Deeply Relaxing Items That Make Living With Anxiety Easier

 

1. Lava Stone Bracelets

 

Natural lava stone bracelets work as essential oil diffusers – simply add a few drops of a calming essential oil blend, let it sink in and enjoy a calming experience wherever you are. If you want to enjoy another essential oil, simply wash the bracelet and add a few drops on the stones again:

2. A Weighted Blanket

 

I’ve already raved about the wonderful benefits of a weighted blanket in this article. But just in case you don’t have time to read it, weighted blankets are extremely helpful for anxious people because they create a feeling of deep comfort and help you fall asleep so much easier. I used to struggle with pre-sleep panic attacks and once I started sleeping under a weighted blanket, that problem was simply gone:

3. Soothing Inhalers With Natural Calming Extracts

 

These fun vaping pens are designed to help you calm down and relax by inhaling a natural mix of calming herbs or melatonin, which helps you to fall asleep easier. People review these as enjoyable, effective and helpful tools that allow you to fall asleep easier, relieve anxiety and simply get calmer with a few puffs:

4. “The Power Of Now” By Eckhart Tolle

 

The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

This one is extremely recommended by myself. I’ve read this book a few years ago and, even though I’ve read tons of anti-anxiety books in the past, this one was the most life-changing of them all. Eckhart explains a completely new, unheard and eye-opening concept of living without suffering which can be achieved by bringing yourself back to the present moment. In it, you can find a complete, unhindered inner peace where anxiety, worry or fear simply can not exist. Since reading this book and starting the practice of being present, I found a new way to live my life completely calm, much braver and simply happier. This is a must-have in every person’s life (it is Oprah’s favorite book too!).

 

5. Calming Pillow Sprays

 

These natural sleep aids fragrance your bed and calms the nerves. Simply spritz your pillow before you sleep and drift into a calm sleep – can this be any easier? People who tried them report it easier to fall asleep, stay asleep and wake up feeling well-rested and refreshed:

 6.  Body Oils With Lavender 

 

Deeply moisturizing oils can also be deeply relaxing if they’re infused with lavender essential oil. Take a relaxing bath and follow with lavender-infused body oil to ease anxiety and calm down before sleep:

7. Daylight Therapy / Sun Lamps

 

These are real life savers in dark winter months, windowless office cubicles and places where winter lasts longer. The sun therapy lamp works to help reduce effects associated with winter blues, jet lag, shift work & seasonal affective disorder – ensuring daylight when you want it, where you want it. Not only can they brighten up your space, but they can also brighten up your mood as well:

8. Cozy Headphones For Sleep, Meditation & Insomnia

 

This kind of headphones is made from soft fabric and designed specifically for meditation and wearing during sleep. If you love to listen to nature sounds, an audiobook or guided meditation before sleep, these headphones will allow you to do that comfortably. Because the fabric wraps around the top of your head, it also doubles as a sleep mask so you can fall asleep without worrying about anything:

9. Calming Bath Salts

 

Calming baths soaks are usually infused with calming ingredients and help you have an extremely relaxing bath session that is also able to replenish your body with minerals. All you need to do is add a handful of these salts to your bath to infuse the water with all the good ingredients, and relax:

10. Deeply Calming Anti-anxiety Teas

 

Tea is a natural aid for people that have problems sleeping, insomnia, anxiety, and stress. A sleepy blend helps you to take nighttime and doze off for a calm, deep and restful sleep. No tossing, no turning, no counting sheep and trying to make racing thoughts to go away – and all of that can be achieved with a simple cup of good, quality tea blend:

Traditional Medicinals Organic Nighty Night Valerian Relaxation Tea
