If you can’t tell, I’m super mega excited to be bringing y’all this post today! As you can imagine from the title of this post, today we’re going to be talking about the subject of anxiety and some simple ways that I’ve found to help calm that beast! Along with giving you some tips and tricks to help out when you’re having those rough days full of anxiety and stress, I’m also going to be GIVING AWAY ALL OF THE ITEMS MENTIONED!
That’s right! Everything I mention within this post will be up for grabs for one lucky winner at the end of the post! Be sure to stay until the end of the post to find out how to enter the giveaway!!! This post is only possible because of all of the lovely small businesses/shops that were willing to send me their products for me to giveaway to one of my amazing readers! We’ll talk about each shop individually as we get to their products within the post and all of their information will be linked at the end of the post, so let’s just hop right on into ways to ease your stress and anxiety and the products that will help you do so!

-Unlined Journals by Party Bella
One of the very first ways I discovered to put my anxiety at ease throughout my anxiety journey was writing out all of the jumbled thoughts in my brain. Specifically, I like using small journals that way I can easily take them with me wherever I go just incase my anxiety starts getting a bit out of hand. I know a lot of people think that writing out everything you’re feeling doesn’t seem like it will be much help at all, but honestly it’s one of the simplest ways to let everything out. If the stress and anxiety ever feels too overwhelming and like there is nothing you can do just pick up a journal and start writing without thinking. Just let everything flow. I found these amazingly printed unlined journals while searching on etsy and after reaching out to Alice, the shop owner of Party Bella, she was kind enough to send me four of her products all the way from Isreal to help one of my readers relieve their stress and anxiety! How sweet that she sent two for me and two for the lucky reader!

-Dissolving Thought Bubbles by MotivationalTattoos
This isn’t a product that I have used before, but more of a type of concept I use to ease my worries and anxiety. These items come from a lovely woman named Francesca in London! The item on the right is the item that is based on a concept I use to help me out in times of extreme anxiety or stress. Sometimes I have thoughts that I need to get out that I know I will need to get rid of after I write them out, so I usually would tear those pieces up and throw them in the trash, but the concept of these thought bubbles is even better. These bubbles you are able to write on and then put in a glass of water and watch them dissolve away! The whole idea was inspired by a product called worry people that Francesca’s mother gave her when she was little, you would tell the doll your problems and they would sort of “absorb” her worries and anxiety about anything by the next morning. The whole dissolving thought bubble is one of my favorite ideas I have ever come across to get rid of any stress. You literally get to watch it go away! How Neat!?
Peep the small tattoo on the side as well! Sweet Francesca threw that in as a little bonus for the winner of the giveaway as a small reminder to stay CALM!
3.) Hot Tea
-Anxiety and Stress relief loose leaf tea by Grey Roses Magick
Now, I know we’ve talked about drinking hot tea to help sooth the pain of periods, but that’s not the only thing hot tea is good for. Drinking a cup of tea is first of all, just a nice routine to go through to try and start calming your body down, but the tea I’m featuring here is made especially to help relive the everyday stresses of anxiety! Teas like this work wonders, and I’m even more excited for one of my readers to win this simply because Charlie, the creator of Grey Roses Magick, started the shop specifically to help with problems they were having while also being able to give back and make other people feel a bit better as well! I’m totally here for this concept, and I know the tea is going to be absolutely magnificent!
4.) Essential Oils
-Anxiety and Stress relief essential oils by Clean Haven Naturals
These my friends, are my holy grail product that I’ve been using for over 2 years now. I haven’t specifically been using the Clean Haven Scents version, but after receiving her products it will be my go to place to Anxiety and Stress relieving essential oils! I’m extremely happy I found Charlene’s products and I’m even more happy that I get to give them away to you! Essential oils are my go to when I’m feeling a little bit on edge due to my anxiety. The simple smell puts you at ease immediately and gives you a beautiful scent to bask in instead of basking in all of your worry. Charlene even sent an extra bit to add to the giveaway which is her minty grapefruit chapstick! Please head over to Charlene’s Etsy shop, because essential oils are just the start of what she creates! All of her products look so lovely and great for everybody!
5.) Adult Coloring Books
-Anxiety Relief Adult Coloring Book by Matthew Diomataris
This is a product I’m very very very lucky and excited to be promoting on my blog! As we have talked about before in one of my book hauls, coloring in adult coloring books is a huge trend that had started, but one that couldn’t have had a better reason to start! The whole idea of an adult coloring book is brilliant, and it really does help ease your anxiety. Being able to take your mind to a new creative place is the best way to not think about the necessary stresses and anxiety of life. This coloring book I’m so happy to present to you because it comes from a wonderful artist I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing! You can read that interview HERE! Matthew got the idea to start creating a coloring book when he had an art show that dealt with the idea of stacking different items on top of each other. His friends and family began liking the illustrations he was creating so much they asked him to create a coloring book out of them and he decided that’s just what he would do! After his wife became pregnant and started snacking for two, Matthew knew just the right theme he would use for his coloring book, and today we are presented with “The Fat Kid Coloring Book” full of all of the delicious treats you could ever wish to color in order to put your worrying mind at ease!
6.) Pamper Routine
-Gender Neutral exfoliating and moisturizing sugar scrub, rich body butter, and soothing soap bar by Blue Sunday Scents
One of the last things I do to try and calm my anxiety is to drop everything and pamper myself for a night. I know it’s extremely hard to do this when you have anxiety, but you need to take a moment for yourself whether you’re a dude or a lady. Stop everything you are working on stressful or not, and treat yourself to some of Blue Sunday Scent’s items for a stress and anxiety relieving experience. Thankfully, I’ve been able to try each of the items I’ll be giving away, and let me tell you they sure do work! These products are great for stress and anxiety relief along with helping you to stay looking amazing and feeling great! The sugar scrub is probably my favorite, but I’m in love with all of their products! The owner started by creating these products for herself, so you know it’s actually products that she would and does use herself! The Sugar scrub smells great, works amazingly, and hydrates your skin in the process! The body butter leaves your skin feeling hydrated and smooth, and the bar soap is the best for feeling super clean and comfortable! This package is all around a great way to treat yourself and ease a bit of anxiety and worry away!
