Stars like Naomi Osaka, Selena Gomez, and more have been incredibly open about their struggles with their mental health. After an anxiety-inducing year (or two), their experiences may sound even more familiar. Luckily, they’ve also talked about how they cope, and many of them use science-backed methods for dealing. If you often buy things in pursuit of quelling your anxiety, here are a few things you can shop, download, and gift that might help.
