BetterBox Subscription Review & Exclusive Coupon

             

We all have something in our lives that we know we need to improve on. It's part of being human. But what truly makes us ,as a species, so remarkable is our ability to change those problems within ourselves. It's never an easy task, but if you need a little help and motivation there's a brand new subscription box that may be just what you need.... It's called BetterBox.


           
BetterBox, who kindly sent me this box for review, is an experience like no other. For $29 per month, you'll receive "a new BetterBox together with a collection of quick, fun, and easy activities and treasures proven to cultivate positive habits, uplifting emotions, and a happier outlook on life in just minutes a day." They premise is so intriguing and I absolutely had to say yes when BetterBox asked to do a review.

BetterBox is now open for orders, with the first box due to ship out around the first of July, Keeping that in mind, this particular box is just a taste of what you can expect in your full box each month! Need a little more incentive? BetterBox Is offering an exclusive discount to DDG readers! Use code dixie10 at checkout for $10 off your first box!



Before I go any further, I want to talk about something. Generally when a subscription launches, I find packaging to be a bit lacking, no big deal, that's just normal, however, this flaw is nowhere to be seen with BetterBox,,, like, at all. From the box to its contents, it's flawless, that speaks volumes of the care and commitment that BetterBox has to its subscribers and I have to applaud that!

Every BetterBox brings you a quest (my sample box included the Gratitude quest). Each day, you receive an email with a simple but important task that can be completed with the items in your box, so don't go digging into all your goodies until your task tells you to, (it tested my will power. That's for sure!)



Day 1: Perform the Mind Mapping exercise to reconnect with Gratitude.--- a great way to begin and reflect on what and who you are truly grateful to have in your life,



Day 2: Send a hand-written note of appreciation to a friend or loved one. Use one of the hand-crafted Appreciation Cards from your BetterBox. --- I love these cards and the idea behind them. When was the last time you wrote a note and truly expressed how thankful you are to someone? It has so much more of an impact when it's written down.



Day 3: Give thanks for the little things. Admire the sunset over a cup of tea.. --- Tea and the sunset? Absolute heaven and the perfect way to get into the grateful mindset, Plus, this tea is delicious and adorable too.



Day 4: Visit a location for which you're supremely grateful and reflect for 30 minutes.  --- Some places just make you think, don't they? Not just about the present but also the past and future. When your done, BetterBox says to leave the touchstone behind for someone else to find. Maybe that little token can spark a change for the better in someone else's life.


Day 5: Perform any random good deed. --- Sometimes in our own lives, it's hard to remember the struggles in our own life.  This is a great and oh so simple thing to do, a little humanity and courtesy can go a long way,


Day 6: Use 5 sticky notes and make a wall of gratitude. --- BetterBox says to stick these on your mirror when finished. You can't forget what your grateful for if its right infront of you!


Day 7: Thank Yourself. Enjoy a soothing bath and relax in gratitude for you. --- I generally like rewards where I'm soaking in a nice bath and these bath salts just made it better, they even have flower petals in them that float to the top of your water.... Luxurious!


Yay! Now that my tasks are over, I get to reward myself with the included cookie! It's absolutely yummy!

Here's the verdict, plain and simple. While BetterBox is not your typical subscription box, it may just be the most important and impactful. The concept is genius and something we can all use in our lives. It's not a box full of fad and trend items, it's a box with a mission and purpose - to make us realize how truly blessed and amazing we all are despite our flaws.. It's a box that changes your life and everyone else's for the better and that, my dolls is truly a rare and remarkable thing.
