Sometimes life feels over-whale-ming. There’s just too much going on, and too much to maintain. We’re struggling to tread water, and have the terrible feeling that we’re about to go under.
August’s BuddyBox is for the times when there’s a storm on the horizon and the waves are rolling in. It’s a soothing ‘hug in a box’, packed with tools to help you stay afloat, and make it back to shore.
Space away from the responsibilities, the shoulds, the coulds and the daily grind often serves up a dollop of clarity and a change in perspective – much-needed things when life feels as though it’s getting on top of us. In this BuddyBox, we’ve included an affirming whale bookmark to serve as a reminder that our dreams and wants are important and to go fearlessly in the direction of them. The plasticine sea animals are a stress-busting and soothing activity; making things with plasticine is particularly helpful when we’re full of nervous energy. Gone for Lunch includes 52 ideas of things we can do during our lunch break. The weekly challenges are great for those who want to up the self-care ante but aren’t sure what to try. The purifying face mask and hot chocolate create a mini pamper-pause in the day. Quite often, the power is in the pause.
You can see what some of our Blurt fam thought of this whale-come care package below. If you want to grab a box for yourself – or a loved one – you can head over to our shop.

Look what I received this morning! #happymail . I’ve been quiet on here recently, mainly because life feels chaotic right now and it’s easy to let things I enjoy slide. A colleague introduced me to the wonderful @theblurtfoundation who support people with Depression. Ohhh how that capital D can haunt you. They email me frequent reminders to take care of myself, reminders that cut straight to something you had assumed was just fact now. And I found this really helped me so I started getting their monthly subscription. . There’s always a book ? this book and bookmark are wonderful – I’m going to try and take some time for self care and stop answering queries when I’m on my break! . #BlurtFoundation #BuddyBox #WhaleOfATime #lunchbreak #selfcare #takecare #FightDepression #Bookish #Bookstagram #GlobalBookClub
