Anxiety, depression, and insomnia have definitely impacted the quality of my life growing up and even into my adulthood. I remember my first experience with anxiety at the age of 6, depression at the age of 10, and insomnia at the age of 14. Therefore, I’ve always felt like I’ve had an anxious spirit.

Determined to be the catalyst of my own healing, I’ve spent years searching and curating essential tools to manage my anxiety, depression, and insomnia. These are tools, gadgets, and supplements to help me feel calm throughout the day and have a restful night’s sleep in the evening. Some of these I haven’t used in a while just because I’ve been testing other things and I don’t combine everything. However, most of these I still use.

Get a More Restful Night’s Sleep, Beat Your Anxious Spirit:

  1. YS Industries Foam Earplugs Ultra Comfortable.
    I happen to have a different brand, but getting earplugs was the best decision I’ve ever made. They not only block out common household noises and noises from the neighbors, but they also help me hear my own breathing. Which, is really calming to be able to focus on the sounds of my own breathing.
  2. BUZIO Weighted Queen Size Blanket 15 lbs for Adults.
    Now, I haven’t tried this one yet, but I’ve been reading about how they can do wonders for the anxious person. I want to try one, but I’m going to do my research. I read that it’s good to get a blanket that is about 7% to 12% of your body weight and to go lighter if you deal with joint pain.
  3. Relax Melodies Premium: Sleep Sounds, White Noise, Meditation & Fan.
    Even though you’ll be using your earplugs, you’ll still need a soothing noise to help you feel calm upon falling asleep and waking up.
  4. Bluebonnet Nutrition Earthsweet Chewables Melatonin 5 Mg, Raspberry, 60 Count
    Most of us who deal with anxiety have a really hard time feeling sleepy when it’s time to feel sleepy. Especially, if spend a lot of time in front of the computer as I do. It’s really hard to unwind. Taking melatonin helps me to feel sleepy at the appropriate time and I never wake up groggy.
    I take this brand because it doesn’t contain artificial colors, sweeteners, milk, shellfish, tree nuts or peanuts, wheat, and soybeans. It’s free of all the things that would cause inflammation for some.
  5. Athena Menstrual Cups Period Cup or the
  6. Talisi Menstrual Cups Set of 2 Period Cups
    No one wants to worry about a leak while trying to get a good night’s sleep. I currently have white sheets on my bed and no mattress pad. The thought of a leak is panic-inducing. I’ve purchased two different menstrual cups and they both work very well. I happen to have the size for women over 30 and
    I have given birth. They are slightly bigger. The Athena cup is sold as a single cup. The Talisi menstrual cups are sold as a set of two different sizes, one small and the other is large.
Supplements Numbered.png
SAM-e, Calm Magnesium, Magnesium Oil, Vitamin B12 Complex Drops.

(I’m not a medical professional. So, please consult with your doctor before taking these or any combination of these.)

Take Your Supplements, Bye-Bye Anxious Spirit:

  1. Doctor’s Best SAM-e 400 mg, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Mood, and Joint Support.
    When I’m on them, I’m much more focused, calm, and a bit more resilient. These aren’t cheap but they are worth it. To add, they support liver health and joint health, both of which are super important to me.
  2. Natural Vitality Calm, The Anti-Stress Drink Mix, Magnesium Supplement Powder.
    I’ve been taking this for over a year. Sometimes, I take it before bed and I give my son the kid’s version before bed. Sometimes, I can take it during the day. It doesn’t make me drowsy at all. Taking a magnesium supplement has reduced my anxiety, mood swings, muscle spasms, and this weird feeling I’d get that made me feel like I wasn’t getting enough air.
  3. ASUTRA Topical Magnesium Chloride Oil Spray, 8 fl oz
    This is a great substitute for taking the Calm supplement or even taking an Epsom salt bath because some of us just don’t have time to soak in the bath often.
    I just spray this on after taking a shower.
  4. Organic Vitamin B12 Liquid – Extra Strength 60 x 5000mcg Drops (Methylcobalamin), w/Natural Cherry Flavor.
    It’s super effective for nerve health, it helps me have energy, and boosts my mood throughout the day.

  1. I love this list! I’m definitely interested in learning more about SAM-e and I literally just came back from picking up b-12 from cvs. I had my blood tested to check different levels of my organs and found my b-12 to be virtually non-existent. Also, my knee caps (Joints) have been bothering in my sleep for some reason so I’ll be looking more into that soon. Thanks for posting!
