Self-Care Boxes Welcome
Welcome to this holiday self-care journey! I came up with this idea in September of this year in an effort to give you (and myself, I obviously made myself a box.) a way to treat and honor your spirit in one of the busiest, and often emotionally difficult, times of year. I used to love getting an advent calendar as a kid, and I know there are tons available for grown ups, so I thought I would give this a shot. Thank you for being part of the inaugural year.
I sent an email that hopefully you all received. In case that email didn’t make it to your inbox, or you didn’t see the story on Instagram, I’d like to apologize one last time for the delay in shipping the box. I severely underestimated what bringing this to fruition would take. As a one-woman show, the last few weeks have been an absolute circus. I knew I wanted to deliver a value well beyond the price tag you paid, and I wanted the offerings to be special. As a result it was important to me to not cut corners and deliver what I had originally envisioned even if it was a few days late. My sincere gratitude for your understanding. I learned so many valuable lessons for next year’s boxes and I’m appreciative of that opportunity as well.
Now for the process/ journey ahead. I wanted to give you a word for each day to meditate on. Something that would be easy to recall as you move through your day, if needed. I also included journal prompts so that you could sit with the day’s intention and reflect on what comes to mind. The enclosed journal is a place for you to record those thoughts. Journaling each morning is a very big part of my daily practice and has played a pivotal role in cultivating mental wellness. I hope it does the same for you. If journaling isn’t your thing, feel free to use the notebook however you see fit and skip right to the daily treat. This box is for you and should absolutely be a choose your own adventure. I want your daily interaction with this box to make you feel good.
Each day has a QR code. You can scan that code for a digital version of the card. This is for friends that may need to use accessible technology to read the card. There is also a short blurb on the product - why I chose it and various ways it can be used (when applicable).
All of the products were chosen, developed, and made with the daily word in mind. I am an animist and an herbalist and believe in the healing powers of our plant allies. I hope when you use these products you are inspired by these plants in the same way working with them makes me feel.
If you have any questions, comments, feedback, really anything you need, please don’t hesitate to reach out. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or text me at 314.496.4634.
Thank you for being a part of my community. I am so glad you’re here.
