Welcome to Wellness Wednesday 

This week’s topic is Comfort Boxes

-What is a comfort box

A comfort box is a very easy form of at home therapy / self care that is pretty basic to put together. All you need is a box (or bag) and somethings that you love. The idea is that you have this wonderful things that make you happy gathered in one place and when you need it, it’s all right there for you. 

-What do I put in a comfort box

Anything that has a positive influence on the way you think! Ideas include, but are no means limited to,:

crayons and some coloring pages

a positive book, poem, comic, etc. 

your favorite smell good items

a journal

a favorite CD

a sweet letter from a loved one or from yourself to yourself

things that remind you of your positive accomplishments 

-Why is a comfort box is a good idea for mental health wellness

Having an easy to reach group of items that make you happy is always a good idea. If you’re like me, you might get frustrated pretty easily and frustration might set in faster if you’re already experiencing an intense mood such as anxiety or depression, if I need one of these things that I know will help calm me down and for whatever reason I can’t find it, it’s only going to make the situation worse, having them in a safe place makes getting to my “happy place” that much easier. 

When you’re experiencing an intense mood and you need to calm yourself, a distraction is the best place to start, for some of us, we turn to negative distractions, usually because they are the first to come to mind and easiest to access. Having a comfort box changes this, now your easiest distraction is full of positive options. 

-What’s in your comfort box

My comfort box itself just makes me happy because I love Marvel and I was so happy to find this empty Marvel shoe box. Inside the box are:

An 11th Doctor Hello Kitty that my Aunt made for me Christmas before Last. 

A pack of Crayons 

A rustic looking set of playing cards that I use to play solitaire or just shuffle and organize over again as a quick distraction. 

"Bali Sunrise" soy candle from Target 

Sinful Colors nail polish in “Midnight Blue” (when it’s on it’s TARDIS blue) 

Solana Beach body cream from Hollister 

And last but not least, the paper version of my license. Having my drivers license and being able to comfortably drive a car by myself is something I never thought I would achieve. Some of my worst anxiety driven fears involve cars. I was 21 before I had my license and it took three tries, but I keep that paper as a reminder that I am stronger than I know and my fears can be conquered. 

Hopefully this post on comfort boxes encourages you to put together one of your own.
