The Breakup Recover Kit
The Breakup Recovery Kit is a combination of four bottles intended to help people who just broke up through the first four stages of the grieving process—denial, anger, bargaining, depression. Each bottle is designed specifically for different symptoms and mindsets by using contrasting colors, typography and progress bars to show the stage of the medication process. The heart icons inside the box indicate how people heal while taking this medication.

Break Up Recovery Kit is inspired by my personal experience. While helping myself go through a breakup of a three years relationship, I have a strong desire for some kind of medication that can help me relieve the pain and heal the wound immediately. So I started to do researches about all kinds of methods that help with the recovery and learned about the theory of five stages of grief by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, a Swiss-American psychiatrist. Thus, I created a corresponding medication for different symptoms and mindsets of each stage. People need to first identify their stage and then take the tablets follow the medication direction for use.
