Mental health issues are often a silent struggle for so many, but most people have gone through mental health issues at some point in their lives, from depression and anxiety to PTSD or loneliness. Whether you experience low days here and there, or it’s a daily battle, finding joy in the little things and positivity in your everyday moments is key to combating negative emotions.
We know just how difficult that task can be. Mental illness can make day-to-day tasks seem insurmountable, and self-care can take a backseat to negative self-talk. Monthly subscription boxes available on the Cratejoy Marketplace can act as a gentle reminder that you or a loved one who is suffering should take a moment to feel loved and supported.
Even if it’s not a magic pill to cure what ails you, mental health subscription boxes can help keep you present and mindful, or simply offer a pleasant momentary distraction. So, no matter if you’re looking for a "treat yourself" kind of box or the perfect pick-me-up for a friend or family member who could use a little TLC, we’ve gathered up some of our favorite mood-lifting monthly boxes that encourage self-love and "me time"!
