    10 Products That Helped Me Improve My Mental Health, Well-Being, And Confidence

    My personal favorite discoveries from the last year.

    Hi, I'm Rajen 👋! I am a commerce strategist at BuzzFeed, and as you can imagine I test a bunch of products. Here are all of my favorites from 2022 that helped with my mental health, well-being, and confidence.

    1. A therapy journal for anxiety and depression, aka your travel therapist. It's filled with writing prompts to help you note thought patterns and take steps to improve your mental health.

    2. A Lego orchid that helped me revisit fun activities from the past.

    3. A humidifier because its extra hydration helped me say hello to dewy skin and luscious hair.

    4. And grapeseed oil for my skincare routine, because soft hydrated skin makes me feel confident.

    5. A water flosser that helped me smile more and avoid pricey dentist visits.

    6. A saffron serum to make me feel like Bella Hadid. With one drop of this serum, my skin is glowy and feels more hydrated.

    7. A pocket-size pill container because I am always forgetting to take my medication.

    8. A gym shirt that actually makes me feel great. It's lightweight, stretchy, and looks great with any color.

    9. A container of Briogeo Curl Charisma because when your hair is on point so are you.
