Mental Health Subscription Boxes That Gift Self-Care

Updated by Akina Chargualaf

Anxiety, depression, and PTSD are all silent struggles that we may go through at a particular point in our life. In fact, 6.8 million adults in America, or 3.1% of the population, live every day with Generalized Anxiety Disorder . If you’re a woman, you’re at an even higher risk, as women are twice as likely to be affected by this emotional disorder as men. Although you should always seek out treatment from a licensed professional if dealing with major mental health issues, self-care and wellness are essential tools such as a mental health subscription box can better your day-to-day quality of life.

While sometimes it's easier said than done, prioritizing self-care into daily, weekly, and monthly rituals is one way of breaking down negative thinking patterns and self-defeating beliefs. Carve out some time to revisit some of the hobbies you used to love, like coloring, reading, and meditating as a part of your routine. This is backed by science: the National Institutes of Health recommends engaging in relaxing activities, setting achievable goals and priorities, and focusing on positive outcomes in your life if you are struggling with anxiety and depression.

If on some days it may be a struggle to get out of bed and go through the motions of each day's highs and lows, starting small and finding joy in the little things are all progress toward making your self-care and mental health a priority. Whether you're looking for a monthly subscription to help you incorporate daily dose mindfulness or a little treat to give you some "me time," the Cratejoy marketplace has the best mental health subscription boxes tailored just for you. Uncover new resources that will help you and your loved ones navigate, accept, and help boost your mental health with self-care practices.
