Remembering A Life Self-care Box

A curated collection of items to help an individual or family on the grief journey - because self-care is perhaps never more important than while grieving.

A resource by Remembering A Life

Self-care is perhaps never more important than while grieving. Eating well, staying active and spending time with friends and family all play an important role in a person’s ability to take a healthy approach to grieving. Taking time for yourself, however, is just as critical.

The items in the Remembering A Life Self-care Box, including a journal, memory jar, essential oil, candle and more, were carefully selected to help grieving individuals find relaxation, reflect and remember. How and when they are used is up to the individual – there is no "right" or "wrong" way or time. The important thing is to use them when ready to do so, whether that's today, tomorrow, or weeks – even months – from now.

The Remembering A Life Self-care Box was created to help guide grieving individuals on their journey. Whether you’re grieving the death of someone close to you or have a friend or family member who is, these items will provide comfort during this difficult time.

Our Inspiration

It can be difficult to know how to support an individual who is grieving the death of a loved one and many people are looking for alternatives to traditional acknowledgements, such as sending flowers. We were inspired to create the Remembering A Life Self-care Box as a thoughtful alternative that can be given to a friend or family member who has recently experienced a death, or even months or years after the death. The carefully selected, custom items can help grieving individuals meaningfully engage in the grieving process in the weeks, months and years ahead. It's a lovely way to say, "I care and I'm here for you on your grief journey."
