Thoreau certainly wasn't the first - nor was he the last - to say "Eff it!" and hightail it to the woods to commune with nature instead of people. When you're feeling strong hermit impulses, light a Walden Utopia Candle ($47) from The School of Life. It'll fill your non-cabin in the wilderness with notes of amber, sandalwood, berries, citrus, cassis, and geranium so you can close your eyes and pretend you're hanging out by your lonesome on Walden Pond. Maybe it'll recharge you enough to make you feel like you can get up and head back into work the next morning. (If not, we think a mental health day is definitely in order!).
