I accidentally started carrying these around in my purse when I took them with me on a business trip. I think I'll continue to do this because these are so accessible for everyday/anytime use. When I'm having a moment at work (aka dealing with people), I'll take the cards out and find one that speaks to me in the moment. The exercises are very easy to do, especially at your work desk. The only reason I knocked a star off is because I'm prone to anxiety/panic attacks and some of the text was too small to focus on (the instructional text).

I will have these FOREVER
These are the greatest things I could have ever hoped to get in this box. I expected the skincare to be good, of course, but these cards?! An unexpected treat that I can take with me wherever I go. I love that they help me find my grounding and take breaths when I feel like things are spiraling out of control - and as PhD student? That happens A LOT. These come in a small cloth bag that you can toss in your purse or backpack, and really give yourself time whenever you need to. They're glorious and you should have them. They're priceless.

Mindfulness cards for the stressed, scattered and time-deprived
These cards are awesome! When it comes to meditation or mindfulness, my attention span is much less than my interest. Which is where Erin McCarthy’s cards come in. When I opened them, I was expecting writing prompts, or a guided mediation, what I got were quick and accessible ways for me to stop and reset my mind and body. There are seven categories of cards. Sometimes, I select one intentionally to address a specific feeling like love, other times I shuffle the cards and see what I get. Either way, I find myself surprised at how simple, yet meaningful each card has been.
My daughter and I have a nighttime routine that includes books and snuggles. On several occasions, I have used a card with snuggle time. One occasion, we did a breathing exercise together (perfect for settling down for bed), on another we reflected on things for which we were grateful.
Packed in a small drawstring back, these cards are easy to stash in a purse, brief case, diaper bag, backpack, you name it. And make excellent gifts for pretty much anyone.
