You know those days where you just don’t feel like yourself? Those days where your day has just been completely off and you can’t quite grasp why? Those days can be such a drag because your whole aura is off. Your mood is off and people can sense it.
What are your methods to making your day better? I know sometimes it just seems like NOTHING works, but there are ways to lean toward the right direction. The ultimate goal is to do things you love that will bring you back to your happy place.
We created a box specifically for those days where you just want to feel yourself! A box that includes items that will help you to feel good about who you are. Take care of your mind, your skin and your appearance.
To start, we are overly joyed about this coloring book by Emily Cromwell. It includes a bunch of phrases that will help you get back to feeling like yourself. Now, I know we often relate coloring to a children’s activity, but in reality, coloring is great for the mind! Coloring helps to relax fear in your mind and invite a restful mind. Would you try coloring for therapy?
To pair along with helping your mind, we included this self-care brain scramble. Word scrambles are good because they are known for improving memory, focus and overall mental activity. Not only that, but it includes a variety of words that help you to remember to prioritize yourself.
And fidgets! A super fun stress relieving toy to help you relax in those anxious times. I've said this before in a previous blog ("Stress Relieving Activities"), but sensory activities are good for those anxious times. Using a fidget will activate touch sensation as well as hearing.
Now when it comes to skin care, I LOVE it! I’m all for new skin care products, especially since I have eczema and combination skin. We included this natural hand and body soap by Healthy Body Investment. We also included this amazing body scrubber. Just pour the soap onto the scrubber, run it under the water and scrub a dub dub! This combination will leave your skin soft and moisturized. You’re exfoliating and cleansing with the scrub while moisturizing with the soap. Who passes up on that?!
Are you a fashionista? Someone who loves to dress up? Well I’m not, but I do notice that I feel a lot better when I dress up and look good. We included these super cute studded earrings, as well as this knitted headband to help keep your ears warm. The good thing about these products is that you can pair them with just about anything! Studs are my go to and this cute headband is perfect for this Fall weather up North!
Last but not least, a little reminder to encourage you in your day-to-day to take care of yourself and to prioritize yourself. It reminds you that you are enough, You are strong and unique. You can conquer the world!
Don’t let those days where you feel off ruin your entire day or week. Let them be a reminder that maybe you need to do an extra step of self-care. Find some things you love and get at them. Everyone deserves to feel themselves! And I’m definitely feeling myself!
