Mental Health Awareness Week 2021 – 10-16th May

2 min read

After the last year of Covid-related drama, our mental health has taken a beating like never before.

Mental Health Awareness Week has been an annual event for the past 21 years but this year it’s probably more significant than ever.

Many employees are still working from home, and this isolation from their team members can have a detrimental effect on their mental health.

It’s so important that we all take some time to check in on our friends, family & colleagues to ensure they’re coping with the many challenges they’ve been facing.

At WellBox we want to help you treat others when you can’t be with them. Our focus is on wellbeing and mental health, and each of our wellbeing gift boxes comes with a donation to mental health charity MIND.

We’ve had great feedback on our boxes so far so, just in time for Mental Health Awareness Week, we have created some new boxes to help you to continue to give the gift of self-care.

Luxe Wellbeing Gift Box

Starting with the Luxe box, the ultimate collection of our best-selling and most luxurious and calming gifts.

The products in this box have been curated to help the recipient:

1 – Start the day right, with Fighter Shots Immune-Boosting Ginger & Marine Collagen Drink and Phizz Multivitamin + Hydration Tablets. Take a few minutes to set their goals & affirmations for the day in The Gratitude Habit Daily Mindfulness Journal.

2 – Take care of themselves physically which ultimately helps their mind too. We have The Salt Parlour Salt & Sulphur Scrub, The Natural Spa Shampoo Bar, Sintra Naturals Vegan Odour Neutra Stick, and Rugged Nature Cotton Face Cloth to help them do just that.

3 – Take some time to relax at the end of the day and clear their mind of the day’s worries. To do this, the Luxe box contains Shuzen Relaxing Himalayan Bath Salts, Booming Bob Essential Oil Concentrate, a Trigger Point Massage Ball, Calm Lavender and Geranium Pillow Spray, Shearer Glass Jar Candle, and Beech’s Continental Chocolate Selection.

Next up we have the Unwind box, a soothing combination of products to create a zen sanctuary that rivals even the most relaxing spa break.

They start by running a bath with the Shuzen Relaxing Himalayan Bath Salts. While they’re there, treat themselves with The Salt Parlour Salt & Sulphur Scrub, The Natural Spa Shampoo Bar, and Rugged Nature Cotton Face Cloth. Take this moment of calm to check in with themselves using The Gratitude Habit Daily Mindfulness Journal.

After their bath, they ease into a restful sleep with the Calm Lavender and Geranium Pillow Spray, Greys and Benison Satin Sleep Mask, and Voutè Collagen Crystal Eye Mask. Then drift off into a peaceful & rejuvenating sleep, ready to face the next day as their best self 💪

GentleMan Wellbeing Gift Box

Last, but by no means least, we have our second box designed specifically for men – the GentleMan.

Men are still less likely to seek support and practice self-care than their female colleagues. This box will help them take some time out to focus on their wellbeing.

They start with the Phizz Multivitamin + Hydration Tablets and The Gratitude Habit Daily Mindfulness Journal to get the day started in the right mindset.

Treat their body right with the Reborn Multi-Purpose Balm and Sintra Naturals Vegan Odour Neutra Stick.

Then finish the day with a relaxing bath with Shuzen Relaxing Himalayan Bath Salts, a Trigger Point Massage Ball, and a treat of Yummy Comb Belgian Chocolate Honeycomb.

Our original wellbeing gift boxes are still available if you haven’t had a chance to try any of them yet but we hope you’ll agree these new boxes are a welcome addition to the WellBox family.
