This box was provided complimentary for review.
What is it? BetterBox
How Much? $29/month plus free shipping (US$)
What’s in it? A collection of joyful activities to shape your happiest life
BetterBox is a new subscription that aims to help you live your very best life. The idea is that if you better yourself, you will better your life. Each BetterBox includes a Quest, built around a life-affirming theme. The Quest is composed of simple, daily deeds to cultivate positive habits, uplifting emotions, and a happier outlook on life in just minutes a day. Each box contains a collection of life-affirming activities, hand-selected goods to support your quest, and step-by-step guidance and inspiration. It's like a personal life coach in a box!
Once I received the box, I was instructed to visit the website and enter my e-mail address and an activation code. My daily deed would appear in my e-mail inbox each day.
I activated my code around 8:00PM on a Thursday. My first quest appeared in my inbox within 10 minutes.
Each day for the next seven days, you’ll be getting a new BetterBox Deed from our Gratitude BetterBox. Each one is designed to be quick, easy, and effective in helping you connect meaningfully with the many blessings that can be so easily overlooked in our lives.
Day 1: Reflection Mind Map
Day 2: Showing Gratitude
My first issue with BetterBox appeared on Day 2. Since I activated my quest at 8:00 pm on day one, I didn't receive my next e-mail until 24 hours later, just after 8:00 pm on day two, and every day thereafter. This made it very difficult to complete my daily task, since the day was nearly over. To solve this issue, I postponed day two till the next day. This way, I would receive the e-mails the night before and be able to plan my day accordingly. Keep this in mind if you embark on your own Quest. It would be better if the e-mail showed up first thing every morning instead of every 24 hours.
Gratitude can be infectious—both for you and your loved ones. That’s why showing you care is so important.
Day 3: In Thanks for the Simple Things
Simple things can have such power in our lives. If we notice them. Today’s deed will help you bask in warm appreciation for a simple pleasure we too often miss.
My patio has an obstructed view on the west, so I wasn't able to admire the sunset while drinking my tea, but I did enjoy a quiet few moments enjoying the good weather and delicious tea.
Day 4: Your Happy Place
Today we’ll be reflecting on the power that a special place can exert in our lives.
Day 5: Inspire Gratitude in Others
Let’s do something that gives someone else reason to feel grateful!
Day 6: Make a Wall of Gratitude
Out of sight, out of mind, they say. And in our experience, there’s some truth to it. That’s why it’s so important to stay connected to the gifts and blessings in our lives—which is what today’s Deed is all about.
Day 7: Gratitude for Yourself
Our final Deed is one that turns gratitude back on the beautiful one who looks back at you in the mirror each morning. We hope you enjoy.
