When I was in my weekly support group. I saw a great mental health tool. It was a busy box. Basically, it’s a box filled with things to do to help distract you when your symptoms are at their worst, or whenever you need to get out of your head for a few minutes.
I am strapped for cash so I put together a busy box that was under $20. I also decided to share it with you.
First, I bought a gift box at Target for about $2 – $3.
Then I filled it with few things that I know would help distract me, if I ever needed distracting.
I wrote the contents on the box’s lid so I know what to get if I ever run out of things to it.
So, here is the final product.
I hope you try it, and if you like it let me know! 🙂
