When you want something real bad, we suggest sciencing the heck out of it. In this case, you probably could use more time to yourself. Did you know that self-care, like soaking in a bubble bath or taking a long walk to admire the fall leaves, can increase everything from your productivity to your happiness? That’s right — ditching girls’ night to read that book you’ve wanted to check out for months or sleeping in just because you can is good for your mental and physical health. Five out of five doctors and our entire staff agree.
Now you can give the gift of time and good health to someone who needs it with this Self-Care Advent Calendar. Each set includes 7 surprises meant to be opened over the course of 7 days. Items like a spa headband to keep your hair back during at-home facials and lavender shower steamers are there to help beat back stress and let people embrace their best selves. Also, the stuff feels and smells really good.
Though “advent” is typically associated with the holidays and this self-care kit is indeed wonderful for Christmas, Hannukah, and more, it’s also great for the countdown to any significant occasion. Give one to a coworker who’s about to give the presentation of her life or to a bride and groom walking down the aisle in a week or so. It shows you care and all but guarantees they’ll think about you as they gua sha their way to a more joyful future.
