What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs,

blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and

format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Winter is hard. The cold weather and lack of sunshine can take a toll on most people’s well-being. During the wintertime, it can become exceedingly difficult for some people to get out of bed and go about their daily routine. 

Despite some of the happiest holidays falling in the winter like Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Years, the cold weather and grey days suck the motivation right out of your body, no matter what events try to brighten the mood.

The winter blues are common among people living in areas that experience all four seasons, but sometimes the dreary feelings that are associated with the cold weather go deeper than just wanting to stay in bed some days. 

Seasonal affective disorder is a type of depression common among adults during the wintertime. It affects five percent of the US population--10 million Americans-- and is four times more likely among women. The disorder causes affected individuals to experience lack of motivation, increased moodiness, and decreased energy due to the lack of sunlight and shorter daylight hours in the winter. 

It’s not impossible to overcome these increased feelings of sadness and lack of energy, though. There are plenty of options available to beat the winter blues and get back on your feet again through regular exercise, surrounding yourself with people you love, and incorporating hobbies and regular activities into your day to day routine to keep things fun and moving. 

Another great way to help someone you know who may be suffering from the winter blues is through a personalized care package. Care packages are a great way to let someone special know that you’re thinking about them, especially when times are rough during the winter months. 

Although a care package may not seem like the ultimate cure to the winter blues, even the smallest gift could turn someone’s day around because it came from a thoughtful friend or family member. 

If you’ve never created a care package before, don’t worry. We’ll walk you through how to make the best winter blues care package step-by-step and offer some premade options as well. 

Premade care package options

There are so many different types of care package options on the market these days. With the Pandemic causing stress for a lot of families, care packages were the new form of communication for loved-ones and friends who were unable to see each other. 

OCM offers a wide variety of care package options for every event from holiday care packages to birthdays to miscellaneous. 

You can’t go wrong with any choice when it comes to picking out a snack-filled box to wipe away winter blues. Even holiday inspired packages will feel special. Anything to bring up the spirits of the person you love will do the trick.

There are so many different options to choose from snacks to school supplies. Once you’ve created the perfect care package, you can attach a personalized note letting your student know how much you care and then OCM will take care of the rest. You just sit back and wait for the phone to ring with your student at the other end thanking you for making their week a little bit better with their very own care package.
