Anyone stir crazy yet? Working from home sounds great at first, but after a while, it can start to chip away at your sanity. And the isolation can take a heavy toll on your mental health. For someone with clinical depression and an anxiety disorder, quarantine has been rough. But I've found the wellness resources at ban.do incredibly helpful and uplifting.

The quirky, vibrant lifestyle brand is so much more than cute journals. It's become a hub for women, offering empowering and free digital downloads as well as free wellness trackers and printables. The founder and chief creative officer, Jen Gotch, is a fierce advocate for mental health and just published a new book, The Upside of Being Down, where she highlights her own struggles with mental health. Her mission is to make people feel better through optimism, self-care and understanding their own mental health.

Ban.do products such as the Jen Gotch x Iconery necklaces are designed to destigmatize mental illness and support people with anxiety and depression. The dainty necklaces don't just donate a portion but 100 percent of net proceeds to non-profit Big Change to Mind, an organization dedicated to raising awareness, understanding and empathy for mental health. I have the rainbow de-stress squishy and it's helped channel a lot of my nervous energy. For just $8, it brings a tiny bit of color and cheer to my work area.

Something else I've noticed about ban.do is the words. Most of the feel-good products Jen designs feature uplifting or cheeky phrases that just make you smile. I have the "Living Cup to Cup" coffee mug and it makes me chuckle to see the wonky font on it because it's exactly how I feel right now. It's a nice reminder to take things one step at a time.

If you need to add some cheer to your new makeshift home office or want to send a care package to a friend who could use a pick-me-up, there are tons of small buys on ban.do for less than $25. And right now through March 29, you can take an additional 20 percent off already discounted items on sale with code "EXTRA20."
