The theme for our May box is Grace Over (Productivity) Guilt! If you ever feel disappointed in yourself for not checking everything off your never-ending to-do list or feel guilty for not doing something "productive" even on your day off, you may have experienced productivity guilt.  Productivity feels good and that in itself isn't a bad thing. But when we start attaching our value to it and wearing exhaustion like a badge of honor, it can become toxic. I believe you can do anything but you can't do everything, friend, and it's time to stop setting ourselves up for failure and start letting go of...

The theme for our April box was Boundaries or Burn Out! If you tend to be a people-pleaser (recovering people-pleaser, here!), setting boundaries can feel uncomfortable or like you're not a nice person but it's an essential form of self-care if you want to prevent burnout and live your best life, including your 9-5 life! Our April box was filled with goodies to help our subscribers prioritize their well-being and set healthy boundaries: Personal development is the "main course" of our subscription and every month, we include an inspirational book centered around the month's topic.

February is often known as the month of love, so we thought it would be perfect to focus on SELF-love this month! I Love Me is the theme for February and we chose this theme because when you learn to truly love yourself as you are, everything else falls into place more easily. For example, when you practice self-love at work, you prioritize your well-being and set healthy boundaries, you advocate for yourself because you know your worth and you treat yourself with kindness and compassion when you make a mistake or when something doesn't go as great as you hoped. So...

Time to Shine is the theme for January and we chose this theme because we wanted you to start the new year feeling unshakeably confident! Last month, you set your intentions for 2022 and made plans to make it your best year yet. But what happens when someone says something negative about you or you experience your first "fail" of the year? Do you let them get in the way of your goals or do you shake them off and keep going? We want you to kick fear and self-doubt to the curb and confidently go after the goals you know you're capable of achieving. So we...
