Project Description

https://ifundwomen.com/media/134134/edit

Inspiring Experiences is an empathy-centric, self-exploration movement that uses the art of story and self-discovery to encourage people to take time for themselves and their mental wellness.

Through interactive workshops, games, tools, and other resources, we help people realize that mental health and wellness is self-care too. Our focus is enabling individuals, business owners, and communities to use their personal stories and experiences to elevate their voices, uncover their authentic value, and discover who they are at their core to connect with themselves and with those around them.

 

Often we forget that self-care is as much for the mind as it is for the body.

When we make time for ourselves, we resort to screen time, spa days, exercise, yoga, and movie nights. While these activities are great for zoning out, distractions, and centering ourselves, we sometimes forget or don't realize that self-reflection, processing our experiences, and understanding ourselves are also key to mental health and wellness.

On the flip side, some of us fail to take self-care time at all. We aren't sure how to add it into our already packed daily agendas or we just don't know where to start — which makes self-care seem impossible. So, we tend to just skip it not realizing that we're adding even more stress to our minds and bodies.

Self-care should be easy, accessible, and should add value, understanding, and peace to our lives. StoryCards were created to guide you on a self-discovery journey, to help you find clarity, and to promote mental wellness in your life. With StoryCards, you can begin to unpack and understand your experiences and recognize that you have a story and one worth sharing!

StoryCards allow us to reflect and reset. With thought-provoking prompts that remind us that we're human beings, not human doings, StoryCards eliminates the "where and how do I start" questions and make self-care accessible and less of a hassle.

StoryCards can go wherever you go! Simply pull one out when you have or need a moment to breathe. 

Questioning and journaling are necessary when working to uncover who we are at our core. It helps us to process both joyful and traumatic experiences. Guided self-reflection prompts and questions help you feel less overwhelmed and make it easier to take a moment to pause, check-in, and move forward.

Self-Care Products to Drive Consumer Sales in 2021 & Beyond

In 2014, the self-care industry had an estimated value of $10 billion. In 2020 — $450 billion. Health and wellness trends and needs continue to expand and the topics of self-care, empathy and mental wellness are everywhere. 88% actively practice self-care, and one-third of consumers have increased their self-care behavior in the past year.

Every day, more and more people are searching for ways to better themselves, and increasing consciousness about self-awareness and the desire to live a meaningful life is front and center in our new normal. The growing interest in self-care led to a 250% increase in self-care-related searches between 2019 and 2020. The need for self-care is even greater. With recent events in our society over the past few years, we're seeing an awareness around self-care and mental wellness like never before.

From burnt-out employees to parenting while working and schooling from home to the never-ending race, gender, and economic issues in our society, we need self-care. We need guidance and support on our journeys and StoryCards are a great way to start your journey.

This StoryCards campaign is about increasing our individual and collective capacity, capability, and reach to connect with more people who feel stuck, overwhelmed, stressed/burnt out, or lost on their path to creating and living a purposeful life.

StoryCards are just the beginning. Inspiring Experiences looks to offer, create, and make accessible more products, events, resources, and inspiration to help you on your self-care and self-discovery journey. Your investment helps us to reach more people, increase production, and distribute our resources to more people.

Hi there! I'm Alexis Russell — a passionate mother, wife, creator, and story enthusiast who loves, lives, and leads with empathy. As I continue to connect the dots to my most authentic self and purpose, I’m making it my mission to help others do the same.

Over the last few years, I've gained quite a bit of storytelling, self-discovery, content creation, and product development experience. I've had the opportunity to partner with more than 40 local, national, and global nonprofits, socially conscious organizations, and business and community leaders as well as hundreds of individuals from around the country helping each of them to uncover who they are and share their stories.

As the Founder of Inspiring Experiences, I'm supporting people as they reframe their mindsets, build empathy and genuine connections with others, connect the dots on their self-discovery journeys, and craft and share their stories.

Thank you so much for investing in this project and movement — and for investing in yourself!

Together, we can create a world where being our whole vulnerable, authentic, and empathetic selves is accepted and normalized through self-care, self-discovery, and sharing our stories with each other.
