September Brave Crate- Calm & Collected 😌

Everything Inside of the SePTEMBER Brave Crate!!!

During deployment seasons I sometimes find my mind racing, my thoughts scattered, and my time running away from me. Between the stress of being separated from my loved one and the added responsibility of managing a two-adult household solo, it can be hard to keep anything straight. In these busy and overwhelming moments, I notice that my self care routines and making time for reflection are the first areas that I ditch.

What I’ve learned each time this happens is that creating and learning to sustain daily routines to keep my mind, my body, and my space well cared for makes everything else feel just a little less terrible as I wait for homecoming. This month the Brave Crate community is focused on staying Calm and Collected with carefully curated tools to create routine, make time for relaxation, reflect deeply, and stay streamlined. We hope that this month’s countdown box inspires you to prioritize yourself, your space, and your spirit as you count down to homecoming!

Ditch the messy bowls and baking gear, and treat yourself with a homestyle cherry fruit tart wrapped in a buttery crust. Quiet the mind, savor, and let the stress of the day melt away for just a moment. Save it as a special treat (if you can!) on a day you need it most in the next month of your countdown!
