January either brings you a positive mind or the blues….

Well I done this a few years ago after I had a major operation and it cheered me up no ends so I would suggest it to anyone that needs a pick me up.


Grab yourself a shoe box and some wrapping paper, sellotape and scissors and decorate your shoe box to your liking

Go hunting in your room for things that make you smile that you think would fit in your box and that you don’t necessarily need on a daily basis

Here is what I have included in mine…you can change it as many times of course…

  • A Sketch book and pencils so I can have a laugh at my hideous attempts at drawing.
  • My memory book that I keep adding to but is full of happy memories
  • a little jar with positive quotes in in to remind myself to look on the positive side
  • A little book of confidence. Its 10 years old its a great pocket sized pick me up
  • A quote from a magazine – Smile
  • My old MP3 player with some right Throwback Thursday tunes
  • My favourite Hand balm from The Body Shop it smells so good
  • A note pad that I can write all that I am grateful for and do a bit of journaling in
  • A hilarious film – My choice at mo is Full Monty
  • A sentimental piece of Jewellery. Mines this watch.


What would you put in yours?


  1. Hey there!

    Wow, this is SO lovely. Winter usually makes my mood swing and it feels like a sad time for some reason but this is an incredible idea to cheer yourself! I’d probably put stuff that reminds me of great times or summat x

    1. I saw it online back along on Pinterest I think and thought it was a lovely idea. Mine changes all the time but that’s what’s in there for now. Winter is a sad month especially when it brings no snow just wet and windy and miserable xx

    1. Ahhh lovely 💗 It definitely is working today when I’m not feeling too special. You can make the box as big as you want and put in what you like that’s what I love about it 😁 xxx
