I'm finally the type of person who will slip on ice, fall flat on her ass in front of a multitude of people, and laugh the hardest about it. I strive for unwavering optimism, but when I'm having trouble, I reach for products that just might make you infinitely happier. Granted, I am of the belief that inner peace is a state of mind rather than a state of ownership, but I do have some key books and tools that help me out when I'm having a hard time getting there.

For me, it's all about constructing habits and a routine that help you to cultivate mental well-being, no matter what's going on around you. That way, when you're stressed out, fed up, or worn down, you can effortlessly slip into your happy place without even having to think about it. This is a godsend when you're stuck in a pattern of cyclical negative thoughts that won't ease up long enough for an optimistic one to shine through.

Another thing that seriously helps me out is creating a clean, natural space where I can go to unwind. This might be your bedroom, or it might be your work desk, but either way, these weird but genius products can help to boost your mood wherever you happen to be.
