I've talked a lot on my blog about mental health and issues surrounding mental health stigma. Having never suffered with mental health issues, I don't really know how to help people. So I have decided to launch a project which is, hopefully, going to help a little bit. But for me to help others, I need you to help me
"The Positivity Box" is the title of this project and the idea is that people can order these boxes off of my blog and they are going to be filled with little pick-me-ups. I want to give people little bursts of happiness.
So what do I want to put in these boxes? Well, that's where you come in. If you were to receive a box that was filled with things that were supposed to cheer you up, what would be in it for you? I asked on twitter and these were some of the responses:
"A pillow, hot water bottle, chocolate or a teddy. Any of those "
"A book, notebook, teddy or a poster with a positive quote "
I'm hoping to have these boxes live on my blog by October and to have a variety of different boxes available. I'm not yet going to disclose the range, but I am really very excited to tell you all about them. I don't yet know how much they are going to cost either. When I first came up with this, I had a few ideas as to what I could put in, but I quickly realized that other people would have different ideas and have different things that make them happy, I thought I would ask my readers.
Do you like this idea? Do you think you would order one? I can't wait to hear your ideas in the comments or on twitter.
