World Mental Health Day

Mental Health Plan, Illustrated.

Today is World Mental Health Day, always super important, but even more so in this crazy year. This illustration shows you some of the things that are part of my mental health/self care routine. It’s something that I, like so many others, always have to be aware of, especially during the autumn months. Know that there is help available and ask for it, if you need it. Take Care.β πŸ’šπŸ’š

PS. Because of the many requests I now have this one available on a postcard on Etsy too. Pin in to your wall as a positive reminder or send it to someone who could use it.

Little Things That Make Me Happy

Finding Joy In The Little Things, In Drawings.

Just a cute little drawing of a few small things that make me happy. I could just have easily gone for “Big things that make me very sad and worried” at the moment, but I chose not to do that. Have a good and safe day! β πŸ’š

Self Care Sunday, In Drawings.

Sunday is for Self Care!

Sundays are for self care!πŸ’šβ  This quick little drawing gives you some self care ideas for your Sundays. I do all of these things myself, and not only on Sunday.

I try to start my day with a little at home yoga session. I love Yoga with Adriene on YouTube, and also try to meditate or do breathing exercises every day. While I work I listen to music of podcasts and drink lots of tea. I go hiking almost every week and always make sure that I have some evenings to myself, to enjoy my favourite Netflix show or read a book. This illustration sums it all up. I hope you find it useful!

Happy International Self Care Day! Self care has always been important, but this year I think we all can use some extra time to focus on things that make us feel more relaxed and happy. In this illustration I drew some of the things that are helpful to me. What do you like to do to give yourself some extra care?

Super Easy Zero Waste Swaps #2

Simple zero waste swap Number 2: Carry your own zero waste kit with you.⁠
I usually have mine in a little separate bag in my backpack or bag. I have a cloth napkin and handkerchief in there, a reusable straw & spork, Γ‘nd a tiny fork because I love to get French fries. 🍟The coffee cup and stirrer I only take when I plan to get coffee, because I’m not really a big coffee drinker.⁠
I do often get some very surprised looks (and laughs) when I take my own napkin or straw out of my bag. But I don’t mind and when I explain why I do it, usually people agree that it actually makes a lot of sense. ⁠
This is just one of the many small things you can do to start reducing your waste. If everyone tries a little bit, together we can accomplish a lot! ⁠ β πŸ’š

Super Easy Zero Waste Swaps #1

Going completely zero waste can be challenging, but there are so many little things that can already make a difference. Inspired by #plasticfreejuly, I’m going to be sharing some super simple zero (or low) waste swaps on here. Like choosing an ice cream cone over a cup. It saves a single use cup and a (plastic) spoon. Extra points for bringing your own cloth napkin! Come on, you can do this! β πŸ’šπŸ¦
