College is stressful. Responsibilities and opportunities sprout overnight, which can be overwhelming and taxing on your mental health. Between late night studying and relationship problems, everybody needs alone time to de-stress and practice a little self-care every once in a while. Here are 10 products that might be just the remedy to boost your mental and physical health in the midst of a busy semester.
This one has seven color options to match any mood you’re in and have you feeling zen in no time.
This one doubles as a face and body mask that will fulfill all your cleansing needs.
Taking some time each day to track your goals and reflect can help you become the best version of yourself.
Now you can remove all of your makeup without having to worry about constantly buying packages of single-use makeup wipes that may contain chemicals that irritate your precious skin.
5. A heating pad shaped for your neck and shoulders to help you work through those stressful hours spent hunched over your desk until 3 a.m.
This one has four heat settings and an auto shut-off after two hours so you don’t have to worry about accidentally starting a fire from too much relaxation.
6. Some self-watering plant pots that will help brighten your space while taking away the responsibility of actually watering them.
Just fill water to the fill line and occasionally check for water in the pot to have flourishing green plants in no time. This set comes with three mini planters that would fit perfectly in any dorm or apartment to spice up the space.
7. A cookbook made for college students so you can treat yourself to quick and easy meals that can be made in the smallest of kitchens.
This cookbook provides recipes that use only five common ingredients and meals that can be made in 30 minutes or less.
Each card in this deck has mindfulness-based practices that will help you dedicate a little time each day to take a step back and reflect on how you’re doing.
This one burns up to 35 hours and is made from renewable ingredients like soy wax, vegetable wax and a wick made from paper and cotton so you can relax and feel good about your carbon footprint all at the same time.
10. A reusable infuser water bottle that will make drinking your daily water goal more fun and flavorful.
The Mayo Clinic recommends men drink about 15.5 cups (124 oz) of water and women drink about 11.5 (92 oz) per day. This infuser is 32 oz and you can add any fruit you want in order to come up with the best flavored water concoction imaginable.
