Nature eases anxiety. There’s a practice called “Earthing” in which people connect with nature by walking barefoot on grass or soil, doing some gardening, or walking outdoors in beautiful areas filled with nature’s bounty. Aquariums are known for their calming effects, too. Those activities and listening to the soft hum of an can aquarium motor while observing the silent swims of the fish can be quite calming. They let a person think through their problems in order to find solutions for them, too

You can dab them on your skin, even under your nose, for relaxing input all day long.
