*Canadian Proud: All products in this post are from amazing Canadian companies we love!

We all know that our ability to cope with stress must ultimately come from within. There are practices we can introduce into our daily existence to reduce stress levels such as regular yoga and exercise, more sleep, cutting back on caffeine, etc. But what about the times when you feel the need to curb the anxiety quickly, efficiently and as soberly as possible? Or your mind is in overdrive and you can’t seem to find your breath, peace or sense of ease?

Simply recognizing our need for calm is the first step towards allowing it to enter our lives. Existing in a society that values hustle over harmony can be tricky for those who often find ourselves burning the candle at both ends without seeming to ever accomplish much.

Luckily, we are entering a time when people are feeling more secure to vocalize a need to stop and regroup. A simple evening of self-care and sleep can be the best thing to help us get back into alignment to meet daily challenges with love and perspective.

Giving yourself the gift of calm and deep rest naturally is easier than ever. We’ve curated a selection of our absolute favourite products (they’re ALL Canadian) to help get you there.
