Our ‘Bringing Boundaries Back’ BuddyBox – The Reaction

Our 'Bringing Boundaries Back' BuddyBox - The Reaction

Aside from ‘Blurt’, and ‘ BuddyBox’, our favourite ‘B’ word is: Boundaries. It took us a while to realise the importance of boundaries. When our boundaries are wonky, we struggle to put ourselves first. We people-please, avoid conflict, do things that we don’t want to, and say ‘yes’ to everyone else’s requests, usually at the…

Our 'S-Elf-Care Is Snow Joke' BuddyBox - The Reaction

December can be a hectic and difficult month (understatement of the year!). We’re trying to do all the things, and be all the things, and meet all the people. Often, when we’re busy like this, one of the first things to be sacrificed is self-care. However, when we’re super busy, and feeling under a lot…

Our ‘Become A Rhino-Snore-Us’ BuddyBox – The Reaction

Our 'Become A Rhino-Snore-Us' BuddyBox - The Reaction

Even though we know that sleep is super duper important for our wellbeing, it’s hard to get enough sometimes. Maybe we just can’t switch off, or maybe we just have too much we need to be doing. At this time of year though, the darkness comes earlier and the temperature changes, giving us the perfect…

Our 'Self-Care Through The Grotty Times' BuddyBox - The Reaction

Life is a rollercoaster, that’s one thing we can all be certain of; it has more ups and downs than a merry-go-round. You think that you’re doing a-ok, that you’ve got this self-care thing sussed, and then, bam, something new pops up. When that happens, it’s easy for self-care to fall by the wayside –…

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’,…

Our 'Take Some Koala-ty Time' BuddyBox - The Reaction

Our lives seem to be getting more and more hectic. We rush, rush, rush from one thing to the next, and we’re always distracted by something. It’s hard to find time for ourselves. But, taking the time to unwind, and ‘just be’, is an important part of self-care. July’s Buddybox is packed with tools to help us slow down, breathe, and take…

Our ‘Sending Gigantosaurus Hugs’ BuddyBox – The Reaction

Our 'Sending Gigantosaurus Hugs' BuddyBox - The Reaction

Our brains are wired to highlight the negative – it’s an evolutionary thing to keep us safe from predators and danger. But boy do we wish the positive sang louder and prouder. We’re all doing our best but we often don’t tell ourselves that, or hear it often. June’s Buddybox is stuffed full of gigantosaurus…

Our ‘Self-care Isn’t Sel-fish’ BuddyBox – The Reaction

Our 'Self-care Isn't Sel-fish' BuddyBox - The Reaction

It’s one thing hearing that self-care isn’t selfish and quite another to ‘know’ it. It can feel icky to change habits that might not have always served us in the best self-care fashion. It can be hard to care for ourselves when we feel unworthy of love and care. May’s BuddyBox is full of fish-tactic self-care-encouraging treats,…
