Self-Care First-Aid Kits!
We live in a world where stress and negativity is everywhere. We, as people with Anxiety and Depression, know first hand how damaging and impairing such negativity and mental illness can be. We all need self-care and support for mental wellness but when the burnout starts settling in and days make us weary – self-care can be really hard. I personally know the feeling of needing help, but having no idea where to start.
Which is why we made our Self-Care First-Aid Kits. Designed with hand-picked products, affirmation cards, and thought-provoking journal prompts, they take the thinking out of self-care.
We are a Mother-Daughter duo who have both struggled with mental health and self-care. Along our journeys we realized something astounding - many of us are not our own first priority anymore.
That's huge! When we leave ourselves to the wayside, we end up feeling burned out and incapable, when really we just need to give ourselves a bit of vitality. So we created Collecting Stars - a blog and subscription box service designed to help you make yourself your own first priority. As you do, you might be surprised at what you can accomplish.

Thank you so much for such a great box! I received this box as a gift after a car accident that left me on a many month long concussion recovery journey. It was difficult and slow and often left me feeling pretty hopeless. There was a lot of exercises and protocols I had to follow and I missed a lot of school and was seeing very little progress. Receiving this box in the middle of my recovery helped me to stop focusing on the negative things I was experiencing and focus on the small good things of every day. Every achievement or milestone I hit in my recovery was so much more encouraging if I chose to focus on the good and use it as motivation. The products in this box and the message from this amazing service really helped me with that. The products and fun goodies in the box helped me to feel more calm and really brightened my day. Everything smelled amazing and was so relaxing. Opening the box was so exciting and everything about it made me smile! I love the daily planner that I received and how much it helps me focus on achieving my small goals day by day. A lot of days felt pretty slow and repetitive when my protocols included no napping, no watching TV, no school and no exercise and I often found my mind taking the time to spiral into depressive thoughts and anxiety about my recovery. I used this planner to write down a few small goals every day and the prompts to check in with how I was feeling helped me to really focus on a more positive attitude. With this system, I was able to finish a huge project I had been working on for a long time! It felt so amazing! My absolute favorite part of the box was my sticker I received. It says, "no rain, no flowers" and having it in a place where I can see it often helped me so much! I focused on my good small goals and the "flowers" and growth I would gain from this experience to help me get through. I also loved all the motivational quotes that came with the box and they felt so perfect for what I was going through! Thank you so much for all the products and for such an uplifting message! The quality of everything was so amazing and the service was perfect. I highly recommend this product and am so appreciative of its help!
