    36 Things To Help You Unplug

    Whether it's to help you sleep better, chill faster, or get you off of your phone, this list has got you covered.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A bottle of Asutra Mist Your Mood Pure Soothing Comfort Mist that'll infuse your pillow and immediate surroundings with the calming scents of lavender and chamomile to help you drift off to ~Snoozeville~ faster — anxiety and late-night studying don't stand a chance at keeping you from deep, restful sleep!


    Promising review: "My sister purchased this for me as a Christmas gift and I was so excited to use it! I'm a college student and I don't intend to but always stay up late studying. Some nights it's harder for me to get to sleep after staying up late to study/do homework on my computer. This soothing comfort mist is incredible; I tried it out right away and was out like a light in 15 minutes or less. And when I woke up the next morning I felt refreshed and I had gotten a GOOD night's rest. I LOVE this mist and highly recommend it to anyone who needs a natural way of being able to relax and calm your mind when going to bed." —Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six scents) or as an entire six-piece set for $59.95.

    2. A rotating, color-changing projector to transform your ceiling and walls into the Northern Lights and help lull your mind to sleep — or at least to a happier, calmer state.


    Promising review: "I’m a college student and this is one of the best self-purchases I made. Having a lot of anxiety and stress built up from school and work, I turned to trying to find some type of relief to help me calm down and sleep. I saw this aurora light randomly scrolling through Amazon and knew that it would make my room feel so cozy at nighttime and help me sleep! Sure enough, it was exactly as I had thought, and I really love all the different light options it gives you. The sound quality is nothing near amazing and the volume doesn’t go too high, but if you aren’t too worried about having the speaker, the aurora light itself is amazing!" —Jessica Kuksuk

    Get it from Amazon for $21.96 (available in two colors).

    3. A plush velour reading pillow for your ideal "I'm in my happy place" positioning, so you are at optimal comfort levels while you dive deep into your latest read or crossword puzzle.


    The velour cover is removable and machine-washable, so don't fret if you spill! And it has pockets for your phone or whatever else you can't be without!

    Promising review: "A soft and cozy reading pillow — very comfortable and supportive for bedtime reading. Supports back, neck, and arms just right, and it has an extra high back for great support. Material is beautiful and well-made. A must-have for the whole family." —Heidi Hall

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    4. A waterproof Kindle Paperwhite that'll win over lovers of traditional books because it reads like real paper and isn't affected by changing brightness levels (aka you won't have to squint if you're reading outside — thanks to its 300 ppi glare-free display). Euphoria can wait, y'all. Like, have you read The Incendiaries?


    It also works with Audible, so you can pair with Bluetooth headphones or speakers to go even easier on your eyes!

    Promising review: "Received as a gift, and it is awesome! I have a regular Kindle, which is great, but this is way better for reading while by the pool, or just outside or anywhere bright. And because it's just the Paperwhite display, the battery life is INSANE!! PLUS, I am a huge fan of ridiculously long baths with a book and a beverage. Waterproof is an incredible upgrade. 100% recommend!" —Lisa P.

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in two colors and 8 and 32 GB storage capacities).

    5. Or a five-minute journal if you want to start off with something smaller than, say, a 500-page book — and best of all, it helps you reflect on the things you're most grateful for and track your ~personal growth~. Sign me up!

    Urban Outfitters

    Unplug to up your emotional health, bbs!

    Promising review: "I have used it every day, and you really begin to notice your attitude changing for the better throughout the day. Worth the buy if you commit to using it every morning and night! It works!" —emnelly

    Get it from Amazon for $22.95 or Urban Outfitters for $24.95.

    6. A reusable steam eye mask to soothe your worn-out peepers after a day of staring at screens — they're basically like an express spa treatment, and each mask stays warm for 10–20 minutes! And what better way to ignore and quite literally shut out the world!


    Promising review: "I can't sleep without it! I used to have trouble sleeping at night and due to getting few hours of sleep, I also have dark circles under my eyes. The heat helps me feel relaxed and sleepy. The sweet smell of the beans is a plus too." —Patricia Garcia

    Get it from Amazon for $8.98.

    7. Or, for a non-heated but all-encompassing option, a lightweight OstrichPillow Light Pillow you can easily adjust to your perfect fit thanks to its drawcord — it'll hug your eyes just right for the most comfortable ~blackout~ possible — who needs those curtains anyways?

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Amazon for $45 or Urban Outfitters for $49 (available in five colors total).

    8. A Tweexy nail polish holder for a fun DIY mani to help you take your mind off of things — because I can't be the only one who thinks painting my nails is super soothing, even if I go out of bounds a lot. Somehow it still is! And it physically distracts me from using my phone.


    Promising review: "Great little device! I like to do my nails just before I go to bed so that I can lay my hands on top of the sheets and let them dry as I go to sleep. The problem is, I would try to hold the bottle between my raised knees, and it would slip and slide around. With Tweexy, I can do my nails anywhere, without having to squeeze the bottle between my knees, or needing to have a flat surface to keep it on." —Suzy

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 21 colors/patterns).

    9. A Soko Glam–curated Korean skincare set that'll put your focus towards taking better care of your skin — even if you're a total beginner — and giving it the proper hydration and defense against excess oil/acne/redness it needs! One tall order of trusted and loved Korean skincare faves, coming right up!

    Soko Glam

    This 5-Step Combination Skin Set includes:

    Missha M Perfect BB Deep Cleansing Oil

    Neogen Green Tea Real Fresh Foam Cleanser

    d'alba Piedmont Peptide No-Sebum Balancing Toner

    Dewytree Ultra Vitalizing Snail Essence Water

    Dr. Oracle A-thera Emulsion

    Promising review: "Since moving to NYC my skin started to break out a lot more frequently in areas I didn't break out before. My skin routine prior was super simple (face wash + SPF moisturizer), so I was a little nervous about using 5+ products at one time on my face. It took some time for my face to adjust to all the new products, but my skin drinks it up now that its been about 1.5 months. My face feels much more hydrated, looks brighter, and has smoothed out a lot since I started using these products. My fav is the Klairs foaming cleanser and the essence!" —Eman F.

    Get the 5-Step Combination Skin Set from Soko Glam for $95 (valued at $137; also available in a 10-piece set), and other various sets for different skin types and skin concerns from Soko Glam for $40+.

    10. A Harry Potter–inspired origami book if you're feeling artsy and want to recreate a little piece of the ~magic~ with just your two hands!


    Promising review: "I wasn't expecting much in this little origami book, but I just picked it up at a store and I'm so excited. It's got gorgeous illustrations and imagery throughout. The step-by-step instructions are also full color and have the steps highlighted in circles, which isn't like the Star Wars origami or the Pokémon origami book. The book suggests completing the pieces in order and I agree, unless you're a master origami builder you really have to do it like that! Perfect book." —Hannah P.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.29.

    11. A weighted blanket from BuzzFeed's Goodful line to help you chill out by burrito-ing it up, so bundle up and feel your stress dissipate as you're being gently hugged. Reviewers also swear by one of these to help minimize sleep troubles, including insomnia, anxiety, and frequent sleep movements.


    Watch this video about the wonders of weighted blankets! This specific Goodful blanket, however, is made with non-toxic weighted glass beads that are manufactured using environmentally friendly processes and quilted in to prevent shifting (so there's always an even distribution of beds!). It also has a breathable HygroCotton cover that regulates temperature and apparently gets softer after each wash, and hollow core yarn wicks moisture to keep you cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful Line at Macy's for $139.99+ (available in two weights starting at 14 pounds), or get a cheaper one from Amazon for $59.90+ (available in nine weights starting at five pounds).

    12. Gluten-free blackberry Vitafusion Melatonin Gummies for an easy, non-prescriptive remedy for getting better sleep that'll leave you feeling actually refreshed and rested come morning (it can also help with jet lag)! I'm a huge fan of these.

    Pain Warrior / Via

    FYI, two gummies is one serving of 5 mg of metatonin! I personally swear by these to help me fall asleep faster, since stress and anxiety oftentimes prevent me from falling asleep at a decent time, which makes the following morning/day terrible — to say the very least. And they're delicious and muuuuch easier to take than a pill.

    Promising review: "These melatonin gummies are soft, sweet, and delicious; and most importantly, they naturally support your body's internal clock and help you drift to sleep. My sleep schedule is pretty horrendous, particularly after my chronic illness threw everything out of wack. So melatonin is not the only thing I use to sleep, but this definitely helps! This product is gluten-free and colored naturally with purple carrot juice concentrate. The ingredients don't contain artificial crap and that's good. Just a word of warning: if you take more than two on any night, you may have some slight hangover symptoms the next day. I did this only once when I couldn't sleep for hours, but I won't do it again. I usually chew two gummies between 30 minutes to a minute before bed and it helps me relax and fall asleep. It doesn't always work perfectly, but for the average person it should do the trick!" —Pain Warrior

    Get it from Amazon for $11.31.

    13. An attachable wine aerator that'll provide the perfect setting for an ol'-fashioned, IRL catch-up date with a friend (or multiple!), because y'all deserve ~high quality~ vino to accompany your emotional outpourings (or hot goss) — without actually having to shell out for top-shelf bottles. It infuses oxygen into your cheap wine when it's poured through a special chamber, so you're left with tastier wine in no time at all!

    @vinturiofficial / Via

    Promising review: "This wine aerator worked great for me. If you drink wine and you haven't tried one of the nicer aerators, then you have to try this. It absolutely changes the taste of the wine instantly. The cabernet sauvignon, which we had initially discarded because it tasted *that* bad, actually tasted perfectly reasonable after we opened another bottle to compare with the aerator. Just hold it over the glass and pour the wine into the top of the aerator and it re-emerges, ready to drink and delicious from the other end into your glass." —Matt

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

    14. A wonderfully-smelling Homesick Candle, because your room deserves to smell like your favorite place in the world, whether that's a pumpkin patch, library, or Grandma's kitchen. Can you already imagine how relaxed you'll feel? Breathe in, breathe out.

    Homesick Candles

    If you need more details, the Pumpkin Patch candle has top notes of Lemon, Nutmeg, mid notes of Ginger, Cinnamon, Clove, Pumpkin, and base notes of Vanilla, Tonka Bean, and Sugar.

    Promising review (for Pumpkin Patch): "Returned another candle in exchange for this one and so glad I did. You get hints of all of the scents mentioned in the description, and the smell is versatile enough to go into November/December. Enjoying this already and I just received it today." —Jeff F.

    Get them from Homesick Candles for $29.95: Pumpkin Patch, Library, and Grandma's Kitchen, and check out all of the other scents.

    15. Or a set of realistic-looking flameless candles if you're afraid of getting *too* cozy and falling asleep next to an unattended flame.


    Promising review: "Love these! So many different options to run them and the remote makes it so effortless to add a little coziness to your room." —Ashley Arnette

    Get a set of nine from Amazon for $20.99 (available in three other colors/styles and quantities).

    16. A cheeky but cute noodle bowl designed with a built-in resting spot for chopsticks, so you can enjoy a cozy bowl of ramen any time you want. Like, right now. Or as soon as this bb ends up on your doorstep. Taking the time to make yourself a little meal/snack beats just zapping something in the microwave, IMO.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "So I really enjoyed this bowl and everyone that comes over is obsessed with eating out of them too. I have a few in my collection. It's big enough for two packs of ramen or pho — so worth the purchase and it's dishwasher-friendly." —izzyfrizzy

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $10 (originally $14; available in two designs). Level up with a bowl and chopsticks set that also includes a soy sauce dish and miso/soup spoon for $20.

    17. Or, if you really want to step up your game and invest in your at-home meals, a gorgeous Le Creuset Dutch oven that'll last for decades and help you cook delicious meals that'll make you feel full *and* accomplished. Its durable interior browns meat evenly and quickly, cooks food beautifully, and works on every kind of stovetop (even outdoor grills up to 500°F).

    @lecreuset / Via

    Promising review: "I love the way this Dutch oven cooks. This product keeps the heat in so well I can cook at a lower temp. It saves time and money. The food you prepare will be delicious the meat will be tender. The flavors in your food will be enhanced. I used to love using my slow cooker. Since I got my Dutch oven, I have not used the slow cooker. The Dutch oven will make you look like a pro. I am an experienced cook, but this baby makes me look like a galloping gourmet. Le Creuset is perfect — well worth the money." —D. Cederquist

    Get it from Amazon for $384.94 (originally $470; available in 13 colors).

    This is our high-priced pick for best Dutch oven on BuzzFeed Reviews. Our testers said meat seared the best in this Dutch oven, only needing a few minutes on each side. Stock also came to a boil the quickest, distributed heat evenly, and they could easily swipe anything that stuck to the sides.

    18. A three-piece glass mixing bowl set to prep your ingredients — it's gonna be difficult to pretend like you're not talking to the camera on your very own Food Network show once you have these.


    The set includes one 1-quart bowl, one 1.5-quart bowl, and one 2.5-quart bowl, all made out of pure Pyrex glass — and they're all microwave-, dishwasher-, preheated-oven, and freezer-safe!

    And why stop there? Get a six-piece bakeware set, reusable silicone baking mats, and reusable silicone baking cups, so you don't waste any time trying to wrestle your delicious creations off of the sheets.

    Promising review: "We absolutely love these! They are a great size and have a good weight to them. They clean out easily, which is a huge improvement over my last mixing bowls. We only use these for mixing, so we haven't run into any issues with taking them from one extreme temperature to another. I do think it's worth noting, though, that it warns you not to do that right in the booklet that comes with the bowls. Clear as day, first page. We'll probably end up buying more and completely replacing our mixing bowls with these." —Orleana P.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.92.

    19. A set of colorful resistance bands, so you can get your sweat on and strengthen your arms, legs, back, and booty right at home and on the cheap — 'cause gym memberships get pricey, fast!


    These are especially handy at increasing the difficulty of your yoga, pilates, and barre workouts, and so much more! They also won't slide or roll up during workouts.

    Promising review: "I had previously been using these thin, cheap, rubbery bands, and they stretch out too much over time, twist up, and slide everywhere. THESE DO NOT DO ANY OF THAT AND THEY ARE AMAZING. I was a little worried about them not seeming as elastic as some others, but it’s only because I was so used to the slack resistance provided previously. These are awesome and I’m super happy with my purchase." —Casey Allen

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $9.97.

    20. A versatile deep tissue heated massager you'll be maneuvering across every body part, because you're not about playing favorites — talk about relaxation!, Amazon

    Hello, eight kneading rollers, two massage directions, and a timer that's set at 15 minutes (45 mins is the max recommended time for any particular area).

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about buying a massager online, but I guess I wanted to try anything at this point because the tension in my neck was so bad! I am using it right now for the first time and it's amazing. Just the right pressure and hitting all the spots that I have knots in. It's very warm, but I wouldn't say 'hot.' I can't wait to use this every night to relax!!! I am so grateful." —Jamie Shepard

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    21. And for your lower body, a manual foot roller or deep-kneading foot massager with rotating nodes to increase bloodflow, decrease stiffness/soreness, and give your tired arches some major relief. I need that right this second.

    Jennifer Beck / Via, Amazon

    Promising review (for the manual roller): "I bought two by accident and kept one at home and one at work. It really helps my foot pain, and is so relaxing, that I sometimes fall asleep much easier in he evening. The spiky parts get into the really needy areas of my foot. It is easily moved from under my breakfast table in the morning, to my rocking chair in the afternoon, and by my bed in the evening. I love it!" —Boise

    Get them from Amazon: manual foot roller for $18.95 or the automatic, kneading massager for $124.99

    22. Or a minimalist cube (or sphere!) lamp for a small dose of reading light to ease you into the night and a not-so-late bedtime — because that blue light isn't going to keep you up tonight, no ma'am!


    Promising review: "This lamp is a beautiful piece in my room. It is small and unobtrusive, but works like a charm and draws the eye of any guests. It's been three months and I love it." —SujuYoon

    Get it from Amazon for $34.95 (available in two shapes).

    23. A Trtl travel pillow to help you catch up on some deep rest (without neck pain!!) while you're flying to your next destination — because free in-flight entertainment is great and all, but I'm pretty sure sleep is better.

    Christina N. / Via, D. Makishima / Via

    Promising review (for the Plus pillow, which is pictured on the right): "I have never been able to sleep on a plane beyond a short restless doze. It does not matter what seat I’m in, how long the flight, or how boring the movies. So when I was preparing for a recent trip to Europe that was fairly short and could not afford losing time to jet lag, I researched travel pillows hoping something might have come along that might help. After reading numerous reviews, travel magazine editorials, etc., the Ttrl always was a highlight. I got the Plus and it was a significant improvement for me. My sleep was still limited to fairly short periods, but it was restful sleep, deep REM, allowing me to hit the ground running when I got to Europe. For any future plane trip longer than two hours or early AM flight, my TRTL will be going with me." —Anne

    Get the original Trtl pillow from Amazon for $29.99 (available in four colors) or the Plus for $59 (available in three colors).

    24. And, if you're at home, a white noise machine programmed with six soothing, natural sounds, like a fan, white noise, or rain — and might I add, void of any noticeable and annoying looping noises — to help restless sleepers knock out faster and/or find a bit of peace from a noisy environment.


    Promising review: "I have tried various sound machines in the past and one of the biggest problems I always have is as I lay there in my bed in the dark, I can hear the various audio clips looping. We all know that sound machines play a loop of the audio (the storage space required would be ridiculous if they didn't), but when you can tell when it starts over again, it is quite distracting for me. My mind starts to anticipate the loop and I can't fall asleep. Quite counterproductive to the point of a sleep machine! I have been using this sound machine for over a week now and tried the various sound effects. So far, my brain has not found the loop point in any of the audio samples! I actually drift off to sleep quite quickly, so there isn't a lot of time for my mind to analyze the clips. This is quite the relief!" —atrac

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in two colors).

    25. A full-on snuggie situation that'll allow you to be simultaneously cozy, mobile, and all-around living your best life — and it comes with a sizable front pocket that can fit many things, including but not limited to a remote, bag of chips, or cuddly pupper.

    Promising review: "Once I tried it on, I instantly became warm and cozy. I know that this is going to be a great asset to me during those cold winter months or cold summer nights, or just whenever I want to feel cozy! I would recommend that you buy it and really enjoy quality time watching TV, doing homework assignments, or just reflecting on the day." —Destiny

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in nine colors).

    26. A gel-infused, memory foam mattress topper to transform any stiff bed, couch, or futon into a soft, cloud-like dream that all of your weary muscles can satisfyingly sink into — so you can, in return, have sweet dreams.


    Promising review: "I have a cheap, hard mattress, so I bought this and my bed is now dangerously comfy. It’s like that scene in A Nightmare on Elm Street where Johnny Depp gets eaten by a bed, except not scary. My boyfriend was almost late for work because he was too comfortable. I slept for 12 hours when I can normally barely sleep for six hours. My cat hardly gets off the bed now. My bed is now dangerously cozy. Use at your own risk. I think I’m going to go back to bed. I hear its sweet siren song calling me." —Jess

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in sizes twin to California king, as well as two and three inch heights).

    27. A book subscription featuring an independent bookstore–inspired pick of the month, handwrapped packaging, environmentally-conscious shipping materials, and typically a signed bookplate and/or author's letter — all *you* have to do is sign up and wait for a lovely book to appear in your mailbox!


    Promising review: "I chose the Books for Coffee/Tea subscription and LOVE that they alternate each month*! I've never been bored or unsatisfied with the titles selected and sent to me — plus the bookmarks and personalized touches from the authors really create a deeper connection for me throughout my reading. The Book Drop is a perfect option for those interested in a curated book subscription — I highly recommend supporting this fantastic small business!" —Amanda G.

    *"Tea" books are for people who enjoy historical, contemporary, or literary fiction and "Coffee" books are for people who enjoy thrillers, action, suspense, and occasionally nonfiction.

    Get it from The Book Drop on Cratejoy for $7+ (available in a variety of subscriptions for adults, young adults/teens, middle schoolers, and picture book lovers).

    28. An ergonomic scalp massager with Goldilocks-approved bristles — not too soft that they're ineffective and won't get rid of buildup/dandruff/itchiness, and also not too rough that it'll pull on your hair and/or irritate your scalp — for a relaxing "ahh" shower moment your fingertips alone can't provide.

    Amber Marie Lee / Via, Michelle / Via

    Promising review: "My scalp gets dry skin build-up very quickly, which causes an itchy scalp. Scrubbing my head with this product regularly has done away with that issue. I also just find it relaxing to scrub my head with it, almost like when you get your hair washed at the salon." —Jaimie Walters

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98+ (available in three colors).

    29. A non-slip bamboo bathtub tray for possibly the coziest soak of your life — which means being surrounded by your favorite calm-inducing things: a glass of wine, book, candles, snacks, and ambient music. Since you have the space, indulge to the max!


    Who knew a wooden plank could make such a big difference?

    Promising review: "It's like it was made for special days, when the only things you need are a bathtub filled with hot water, your favorite movie, and a glass of wine. Could be a nice present as well." —Ana D.

    Get it from Amazon for $42.97.

    30. And a cushy bath pillow to make your "me" time so much better by giving you a nice place to rest your head and back instead of the cold, hard tub. So much so, you may never want to leave the tub again — you've been warned!


    It's made with 2" of padded foam and has seven suction cups, so no slipping or sliding occurs. It has a waterproof and nonporous surface (duh), and it's super easy to wipe clean.

    Promising review: "The best...and so damn affordable!! Got it for a close friend who loves her bath time, she has reported back that it is the absolute best spa pillow she has ever had for her personal tub. She says, 'It never slips, never deflates ('cause duh, no air needed), is extremely comfortable, easy to install, easy to clean, and helps make bath time what it's supposed to feel like — a relaxing escape.' It was definitely a 'winning' gift Idea!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (also available in three-panel and "premium" versions).

    31. A pair of anti-slip Pudus slipper socks with super soft sherpa lining that'll hug and warm up your tired footsies after they've stomped all around town — and they'll be the cherry on top of your favorite PJs getup.


    Promising review: "What else can you say? Warm, thick fleece around your feet!!! They are very warm and remain soft, wash after wash. The rubber dots on the bottom are quite sufficient to keep your footing and not slip." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99 (available in unisex sizing for women's 5–11 and men's 6–10).

    32. Or, a pair of comfy and almost-weightless Allbirds, so you can take yourself for a spin around your neighborhood, because there's nothing like a little fresh air to help you take your mind off of whatever's stressing you out.

    @allbirds / Via, @allbirds / Via

    I have two pairs and I've been obsessed since the first! They're pretty much the only sneakers I ever wear. Check out my in-depth review of the Allbirds Wool Runners (#2) — I can't believe how many colors and styles there are to choose from now, you lucky dogs. I wear them for casual walking to working out and they really don't seem to smell like other sneakers I've worn. And my feet don't feel like they're being weighed down or squished, ever!

    Get a pair from Allbirds for $95+ (available in women's sizes 5–11 and men's sizes 8–14, and lots of colors), or the limited-edition Just x Allbirds runners/toppers for $95+.

    33. Non-slip, slim velvet hangers — if cleaning and/or organizing is your destressor of choice — so you can transform your closet into a neat space where you can pack in more clothes, maximize your already small space, clearly see what you have, and prevent your clothes (especially pants and wide-shouldered tops!) from slipping off all the dang time.

    ChristineSD / Via

    Promising review (for the above photo): "SO happy with these so far. I had heard multiple times that these hangers would change my life. While this sounded nice, I struggled to justify spending money on hangers when I already have a couple hundred here that work just fine. However, after needing to add career clothes to my wardrobe and completely losing all free movement remaining in my closet, I put these in my cart. Going through my entire closet lead me to get rid of a couple of things that I no longer wear. However, the difference in my closet because of the hangers alone is striking. I can finally shift clothes to the side to actually see what I have. While some may think that saving their money and dealing with a tight closet is worth it, I am completely sold on making the change. So happy I pulled the trigger. I've purchased 100 more just now so that I can do the same for my boyfriend's closet." —ChristineSD

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in three set sizes and colors).

    34. A trip outta town, if the occasion really calls for it! Even if it's just a quickie weekend trip, physically getting out of your normal space can totally clear your, well, mental space. Rent a car, make a roadtripping playlist to jam out to, and let the open road free your thoughts.

    Warner Bros. Entertainment / Via

    You literally cannot and absolutely shouldn't use your phone while this is maybe the best unplugging hack, lol. Bring a friend along to navigate!

    Check out Hotwire for car rental deals ranging from inexpensive to luxury.

    35. The chicest of chic essential oil diffusers to keep your room smelling absolutely serene and hopefully your mind cleared. Did your space just turn into a fancy spa? Maybe!

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "This was the first essential oils diffuser I have ever purchased, and it has not disappointed! It is the perfect size for a small room, and it diffuses throughout my dorm room quite nicely. The design is super modern and it was easy to figure out how to use it. I've only used it a few times, but you could easily run it for hours on end if you wanted to. A super great purchase for the price!" —ankrku
