    1. A cold therapy ice roller that'll de-puff your skin and wake you up in the morning. I use mine to combat migraines and it works better than any pain-relieving technique I've tried.

    I have recommended this to so many people I have lost count. It’s, hands down, the most helpful thing I’ve ever bought on Amazon Canada. It’s great for cooling down when it feels like a sauna outside, it helps wake me up in the morning, and it saves me when I have a migraine. Everybody needs to buy one of these immediately.

    2. This oversized heating pad that'll help relieve pain and built-up tension with its magical warming powers. It's made of soft, plush material that makes it comfortable enough to wear on bare skin.

    6. This adjustable gel pack that'll help you ease your aches and pains. It can be used hot or cold, and secures with Velcro, so it won't slide off while you're using it.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I recently had a deep-tissue massage and my RMT kindly told me my muscles hate me (in a nicer way than that, obviously). To ease the pain in my hands and wrists, they recommended applying heat regularly. While baths are great, I can't sit in one forever, so I bought this. I just pop the gel pack in the microwave, stick it to the band (it attaches with Velcro strips), and wrap it around my wrist to ease the pain. It also works as an ice pack and is the perfect size to use on your feet and forehead, too.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $14.99.

    7. A posture-correcting lumbar-support seat that'll keep your spine in proper alignment. It has a waterproof foam covering, so you can bring it with you when you're working outside and not worry about it getting damaged.

    "I put the glasses on one morning when I already had a headache and heavy-feeling eyes before 10 a.m. and within about 30 minutes, I felt relief. NO headache, and NO more tired eyes! I can work even longer without feeling like I need to look away before my screen burns holes into my eyes, and I'm in an overall happier mood because I don't have headaches anymore — in fact, since getting these glasses two weeks ago, I haven't had a single headache or moment of tired eyes! Loooooove these glasses!
