This is a self-care package giveaway to celebrate my first tumblr birthday!
The package contains things that I personally like. There are creative activities, things to ground yourself with using your senses, things to self soothe with, things to pamper yourself with, delicious snacks and treats (I was careful to not include anything hugely calorific so that those who are struggling with restrictive eating disorders might still be able to allow themselves to indulge in these snacks.)
The idea is that you keep the box and add to it with your own self care items.
It might be a good idea to write your crisis contact numbers on the inside of the lid. Maybe you can use the notebook to write affirmations for when you might need a little encouragement. It might be a good idea to keep a copy of your own crisis plan inside the box.
You can replenish the items once you have used them up or replace them with something you prefer to the things I have chosen. If there’s anything in the box that you don’t like, how about gifting it to a friend who might enjoy it?
The giveaway ends on my tumblr birthday which is Sunday 9th November 2014. It will end at 12:00 (midday) GMT (London time) and the winner will be chosen using a random number generator.
The self care package contains the following items:
Sticker activity book
Dinosaur painting by numbers
Non brand play dough
Felt pens and pencil
Multicoloured bouncy ball
CD of Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories
Coconut hand cream
Coconut lip balm
Pom bear crisps
