Positive Parcel is a hug in a box that brings positivity to people’s lives. The parcel is full of handpicked treats to put a smile on your face, encourage self-care, and most importantly spread some positivity! 2020 has been a tough year and this winter is set to be even tougher as we cope with potential tiers and/or lockdowns, no sunny weather to escape our homes and the economic impact of the initial lockdown starting to take effect.
More concerningly recent research from the Office for National Statistics found that by June, two months into the initial lockdown, instances of reported depression had doubled from pre-lockdown rates (from around 10% of adults, to around 20%) and by August 40% of adults reported that coronavirus was affecting their wellbeing.
As the nation slips into the tier system after months of lockdown and then a brief taste of normal life, the impact on mental health and wellbeing is expected to be even worse. We all need to be conscious of each other’s wellbeing and look out for each other especially over the next few months.
PositiveParcel is a handpicked selection of treats that encourages self-care and positivity, but most importantly reminds a loved one, a colleague, a neighbour or anyone that needs their day brightening up that you are thinking of and appreciate them. We believe that a positive mind brings a positive life.
PositiveParcel is also donating a percentage of the profits from every parcel to the NHS and a selection of mental health charities.
The box is £17.99 for a limited period only. Delivery is between 1 – 3 days so still time to get it to someone you know who may be feeling lonely this Christmas.
