A lot of things can relieve stress. Spend time outdoors, exercise more often and boom! You're less stressed. But have you heard about the benefits of keeping a journal? Studies suggest that jotting down your thoughts regularly can help with stress management, and it boosts creativity, too.

That's where the Mindful Notebook ($21.99, originally $30; store.cnn.com) comes into play. With this notebook, you can restructure priorities, monitor habits and behaviors, re-evaluate life goals and write down bits of daily inspiration. This three-part journal was designed to "help you go about your day and tasks with ease." Each page has an inspirational quote and there is a "Gratitude Patience" section for writing down all that you're thankful for. When you purchase this product, Corso donates to The Foundation for a Mindful Society.
