The Well Joy Shop
The Well Joy Shop is a little shop of happiness which is full of wellbeing goodies. These products will help you take simple steps to help boost your wellbeing. From message mugs to pretty journals to wellbeing challenge packs, there is plenty to choose from.
Recently they sent me their welljoy pack to try out. This pack is full of goodies to help you take steps towards a happy life. The timing was perfect as having recently been in a car accident I have been feeling sore and sorry for myself. I was happy to try it out.
The Welljoy Pack
The Welljoy Pack costs £9.99 and comes in a small box that fits easily through the letter box. It is full of little bits and pieces to help you think more positively during the day. There are also a number of exercises to do to help you realise what you enjoy and find places you love to visit. These are all little things but really do help you on life’s journey.
There are a number of things designed to help you think more positively. An A5 poster with the statement “Every day is the start of a new journey”. This can be put beside a computer or on a desk so you can see it every day. This same sentiment is written on a yellow wristband that allows you to carry the positivity with you.
There is a postcard which you can send to a friend or keep inside your diary. This states “today will be full of exciting opportunities”. Just reading gives you fresh hope for the day ahead. Two pocket sized cards help to reinforce positive thoughts about yourself and these can be read at any time. I have put these in my diary so I can see them every day. Telling yourself these things really helps you stay positive.
As well as helping you think positive thoughts the pack contains a number of things to help you go on welljoy adventures. A small booklet contains a welljoy map. This helps you identify things that make you happy by asking you questions. Working through the book really makes you think about things that are important to you. It also helps you identify your strengths and weaknesses. Use the pen from the pack to fill it in or the notebook to take extra notes.
In the pack you will also find the Welljoy plan. This colourful fold out plan lists things you can try to take you on a welljoy adventure. They are simple things like visiting a park or taking a relaxing bath. All of them allow you to make time for yourself and take a break in a busy life. This is something we often overlook so it is good to have a reminder. There is also a space to record your thoughts or put photos.
Finally you will find a keyring which reminds you to be awesome. Keys are something you need everyday so this is a nice way to remind yourself to be your best self.
