Our ‘Self-Care Through The Grotty Times’ BuddyBox – The Reaction

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 –…

Our ‘When Life Gets Over-Whale-Ming’ BuddyBox – The Reaction

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 '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,…

365 Days of Self-Care: A Journal

365 Days of Self-Care: A Journal

We’ve only gone and written another book! Nope, we can’t quite believe it either. It’s accurate to say that we’ve definitely approached the whole ‘writing a book thing’ in a topsy-turvy way – The Self-Care Project was actually our second book idea: we’d spent a considerable amount of time planning a companion journal for the hashtag…

Our ‘When Life Gives You Lemons’ BuddyBox – The Reaction

Our 'When Life Gives You Lemons' BuddyBox - The Reaction

Life will always give us lemons and making lemonade with them is all very well and good, but what if we don’t like lemonade? What if we have enough lemonade to last through the century, thank you very much? How to handle these ‘ere lemons, eh? April’s BuddyBox is a ‘hug in a box’ packed…

Our ‘One Step At A Time’ BuddyBox – The Reaction

Our 'One Step At A Time' BuddyBox - The Reaction

Life isn’t half a hustle and bustle. We’re more connected than ever before, and yet, so disconnected too. The peer pressure we felt as teens never really went away and we get so swept up in it all, that we feel as though life drags us along. We don’t feel as though we’re in the…

Our ‘You’re The Llamas Pyjamas’ BuddyBox – The Reaction

Our 'You're The Llamas Pjyamas' BuddyBox - The Reaction

We don’t feel like the llama’s pyjamas.  Instead, we can sometimes see ourselves from a pretty damning viewpoint, not seeing nor realising that yes, we do have quirks but also, that we have lots of best bits too. In fact, our quirks can be our best bits because they’re the bits of us that make…

Our ‘And Breathe…’ BuddyBox – The Reaction

Our 'And Breathe...' BuddyBox - The Reaction

As if the festive fuss wasn’t enough to contend with, the ‘New Year, New You’ brigade are in full swing and we’re rebelling. Oh yes, we are. Rather than play into the hands of the ‘we’re not enough, we’re not doing enough’ tirade of thoughts that play havoc with us already, we’re initiating full-on nurture…
