1. Lava Stone Bracelets

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.

This one is extremely recommended by myself. I’ve read this book a few months 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!).
