Are we all stressed out? It seems like a lot of us are. Back in April 2018, a poll from Gallup found that Americans are among the most stressed-out people in the world. Then in 2019, the World Health Organization recognized burnout as an "occupational phenomenon."

If reading the above makes you feel even more stressed, we're right with you, but there are plenty of ways to unwind, relax, and take a moment. Our Who What Wear and THE/THIRTY editors lead some pretty busy lives as well, so they shared the products that help them de-stress. The remedies range from amazing-smelling candles to some cozy pajamas for a good night's sleep. Take a look below and use this as inspiration for the next time you need a breather.
