    I’ve dealt with anxiety and depression since my early twenties, which I’ve largely been able to manage in my everyday life through medication and therapy — but I continued to have a lot of anxiety around sleep, falling asleep, nightmares, insomnia, and waking up.

    I’m very much into aromatherapy, and I’ve found that by pairing the scent with my nighttime routine, it signalled to my brain that it was time to start winding down for the night.

    3. A rose quartz facial roller that's basically like a massage for your face. It’ll help to depuff your eyes, get rid of dark circles, reduce the look of fine lines, and promote blood circulation. Plus, you can use it after you apply moisturizers or serums to increase absorption into your skin!

    6. A cult-favourite foaming face mask that'll make your skin tingle and feel noticeably cleaner after one use. It foams up a LOT on your face, which makes for some pretty hilarious Instagram photos when you need a laugh.

    Sarah Rohoman/BuzzFeed

    I've used a lot of masks, both high-end and drugstore, and I've never felt such an immediate result after using a mask as I did with this one. My skin felt tauter and squeaky clean, which is impressive because on the day I tried it out my face was an oily catastrophe. I have pretty sensitive skin, so I worried this might irritate it, but I can safely say that my face totally loves this foaming mask. As with everything you put on your face, make sure you spot test it first!

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $13.99.

    7. Or a rose-scented face mask if you want something a little less bubbly. It has rosewater, cucumber extract, and aloe vera gel that'll help to calm and moisturize your stressed-out skin.

    16. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life Paperback by Mark Manson that refuses to sugarcoat the fact that life can be very, very difficult sometimes. Instead of constantly trying to find positivity, the author argues that we're better off learning how to ground ourselves, understanding our faults, and confronting the bad stuff, so that we can live a more honest and courageous life. It's also full of profane humour, which is always a plus, in my opinion.

    "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it," Manson says, which, I mean, fair.

    17. A drain cover that’ll add a few extra inches of water to your tub for the deepest bath possible. It works by preventing water from going into the overflow outlet, so you can finally submerge your whole body and enjoy a good soak.
