We rounded up 10 stylish and helpful products that cover a wide range of self-care needs. Consider it the physical equivalent of taking a long, deep breath.

Want to cut down on your alcohol intake? Or, perhaps, imbibe some better-for-you cocktails? Seedlip has won over drinkers and teetotalers alike with its gin-like distilled spirit sans alcohol, sugar, or artificial ingredients. It comes in two flavors: the sultry Spice 94 (cardamom, oak, lemon, and grapefruit) and a refreshing Garden 108 (peas, hay, spearmint, rosemary, and thyme). Pour it straight over ice or mix it like traditional alcohol with tonic and ginger ale.

Vie Healing Jade Face Roller
Jade got a bad rap in the last few years due to its association with controversial vaginal eggs. But don’t underestimate this precious stone: Jade is a valuable (and soothing) beauty tool. This crystal-imbued face roller is designed to help reduce puffiness, improve circulation, and relax facial tension. And it doesn’t hurt that it looks good on one’s vanity.

You can now get a fitness trainer whenever and wherever you want–at least virtually. Much like a Peloton, Mirror is a connected piece of equipment that offers streaming boutique fitness classes and one-on-one training when it’s turned on. When off, it resorts to being a functional piece of furniture: a full-length mirror that hangs on the wall. No need to compromise one’s living room with a bulky treadmill.
