1. A diary

2. A desk plant

Plants add serious charm to a desk. And health benefits! Stressy feels resulted in a patch of eczema? Aloe can help to heal that (simply break off a piece and dab the juice where it hurts). Plus: an aloe plant purifies the air, removing irritants that can impact your respiratory system and trigger feeling of unease and anxiety. Then there’s lavender… As well as smelling beautiful, lavender can dispel stress and anxiety. Gift yourself a pot of lavender (above) and aloe plant (R140 at Woolworths).

8. A diffuser

Organico by Oco Life Diffuser, R949, Faithful To Nature

Perfect for your home office (oh hey blissy spa feels), this his wood grain ultrasonic diffuser uses ultrasonic waves (sound waves that you can’t hear) to diffuse negatively charged essential oil ions into the room, which bond with harmful positively charged ions in the air, helping to purify the space. Bonus: this one comes with a bottle of Reawaken & Breathe essential oil blend.

9. Hand sanitiser, of course…

Mada Skin & Tonic Moisturing Hand Sanitiser, R150

Last but not least, because Covid… Make sure you’ve got hand sanitiser at your desk. Why this one’s extra-special? Well, just look it it – cute, right? Plus, unlike some of those paint stripper-type sanitisers, it moisturises as it protects. The handy keyring and carry-pouch mean you can grab-‘n-go for those last-min coffee runs. And the scent is more perfume than medicine cabinet. Hint: Try the grapefruit and rosemary!
