Better Box is a subscription box full of fun activities to give you the tools for a better life. The week I received my Better Box was perfect timing because it was a stressful week. The contents of the box, and the daily challenges that went with the items, helped me to take a little break for myself.
For only $29/month, the Better Box allows you to take a break from the chaos of life and reflect. The box I received focused on gratitude. Each day I received an e-mail with a task to do. Day 1 was performing a mind map to think about who and what I am grateful for. Day 2 had me write a note to someone I am grateful for. Day 3 had me appreciate the sunset while drinking a cup of tea. Day 4 had me go to a place I am grateful for and reflect for 30 minutes. Day 5 asked me to perform a random good deed. Day 6 encouraged me to use 5 sticky notes and create a gratitude wall. The final day encouraged me to be grateful for myself by taking a relaxing bath. The box included all the items needed for these tasks, as well as a cookie, which I embarrassingly scarfed down before I could even take a photo.
Overall I really liked BetterBox. I do not think it is something I would subscribe to monthly, but it was a great way to step back and reflect in the craziness of life. It reminded me the importance of being grateful and the impact an attitude of gratitude can have on the rest of your life.
