Giveaway - Mental Health and Wellness Kit

Mental Health and Wellness Kit

I am raffling off a Mental Health and Wellness Kit to one lucky winner.  It will include the four items listed below (and maybe an extra or two).  See the rafflecopter box below for details about how to enter.  Consider sharing with a friend.  Good Luck!

"The Pocket Therapist" by Therese J. Borchard

"Whenever Therese Borchard was weathering a personal storm, and help was nowhere to be found, her one guiding light was the question, "What would a therapist say?" The result was a sort of therapy scrapbook for rough days--a quick reference for anyone who needs a dose of encouragement, support and tried and true ways to cope. 

THE POCKET THERAPIST is a compact and accessible guide filled with techniques and advice to help combat everything from addictive behavior to negative thinking" - from Amazon

"The Road Less Travelled" by M. Scott Peck, M.D.
"Confronting and solving problems is a painful process, which most of us attempt to avoid. And the very avoidance results in greater pain and an inability to grow both mentally and spiritually. ... Dr Peck discusses the nature of loving relationships: how to recognize true compatibility; how to distinguish dependency from love; how to become one's own person; how to be a more sensitive partner." - from Amazon

Aura Cacia Aromatherapy Mist - Lavender

For centuries lavender has been used as a treatment for depression and anxiety.  It is by no means a substitute for treatment from a mental health professional, but it can be helpful in calming your mind and reducing stress.  For a well researched article about the therapeutic value of lavender check out:

Thera-Flex Therapy Putty

Think of this as professional grade silly putty!  It is a favorite of child and adolescent patients that I work with.  It gives busy hands something to do.  It is primarily used as a physical therapy tool for hand strengthening, but it has excellent stress reduction properties as well.
