What is a Comfort Box or Self-Care Health Kit?

Are you sometimes feeling anxious or exhausted? Do you find yourself wishing you could feel good instantly?

Perhaps you need a comfort box, alternatively labelled a self-care tool kit, for when emotional crises occur, for better or for worse.

You don’t necessarily need to have a mental health problem to have a comfort box. In fact, anyone of any age can make one, just in case anything bad happens.
