Self-Care box

Work tends to be a place where we forget self-care and self-compassion. We get into doing mode. We strive. We try hard. Our focus tends to be outside ourselves. Whether it’s a job, working from home or tackling kids and the house.

So I think we all need a self-care box where we work.  I keep mine in one of my desk cubbies. I’ll put what is in my self-care box, but you put in what nurtures you.

Now the box doesn’t normally have all those things sticking out of it, but I thought you could see some things better that way.

  • A head massager I got at one of those home parties years ago
  • Sticks that make noise from when my kids were little (great for getting aggressive energy out)
  • A heat massager for my neck
  • Cough drops
  • Hand lotion of different varities
  • Thank you cards
  • Pomegranate lip balm and a few others
  • Glasses cleaning cloth
  • Bubbles
  • A glitter lotion – ’cause it’s fun
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Cuticle oil pen (hey, I forgot that was in there!)
  • Mini-flahslight
  • Essential oils
  • A squishy stress ball (well actually it’s a unicorn)
  • A worry stone

Mine also has a clip on the outside to clip positive quotes, affirmations or new habits I am working on.

What would feel like self-care to you? Just 30 seconds with one of the above items can change how your energy.
