This all-purpose surface cleaner from The Laundress works wonders! I can rest assured knowing it’s nontoxic but will still get the job done. This cleaner keeps my surfaces bacteria-free while leaving behind a fresh, clean scent.

If you’re anything like me, then you understand how easy it is to forget to stay hydrated while working from home. I use this Hybrid Canteen from Corkcicle as a pretty reminder to drink my daily dose of H2O.

Apple Watch

While working from home, I’ve quickly realized that hours can go by before I’ve even moved from my computer. I’m so glad my Apple Watch reminds me to get up and move around. I think it’s super important to take a break for stretching or even a quick walk to reset my mind.

My Life Well Loved

For a positive pick-me-up, I can always count on Heather Brown’s blog, My Life Well Loved. Not only is she (and her family) adorable, but her optimism, realness, and joy for life are inspiring.

If you’re into journaling, or even if you’re not, these Promptly Journals are super easy to follow, as they give daily prompts and are a great reminder to exercise gratitude. For me, this journal has been helpful to relieve anxiety and help me focus on more positive things.
