Current events have you feeling a bit anxious? You aren’t alone.

Following are some popular items to help take the edge off. We truly hope these stress-reducing items and practices help you find the serenity you’re seeking.

Each of these products gets a four-star rating or better from reviewers. We recommend you compare prices around the web before you buy, though, to make sure you are getting the best deal.

Also, note that although prices you see here will almost always be accurate, they do sometimes differ slightly from what you’ll see at Amazon.

Note: Orders of some nonessential items may be delayed while Amazon prioritizes shipment of essentials due to the coronavirus pandemic. To find out when a particular item would arrive, look for the “delivery date” during the checkout process.
