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.

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!

International Self Care Day, Illustrated.

Self Care Day Ideas, In Drawings.

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?

Self Care Reminder

Update: I got a lot of requests to make my self care drawings available on Etsy. That’s why I now have Take Care and Mental Health Plan cards in my shop.

Netflix and… Quarantine!

Another weekend stuck at home. I updated this one again with only things that are actually my quarantine favorites. Like playing online Scrabble, eating home made brownies for breakfast (sometimes!), too much pizza, plant babies everywhere and, of course, rosΓ© wine. I hope you’re having a good weekend and staying safe! β πŸ’š

Quarantine Casual

2020 04 Quarantine casual Mangomini

At the end of every month I usually make an illustrated recap. This is March. I call it “quarantine casual”. As you can see I’ve been taking care of myself and keeping busy, but I also take time to relax and treat myself regularly. Full disclosure: in reality the tops on here are black. Stay safe! πŸ’š

Support Small & Local

Here are some ways to support your favorite (local) small businesses, so that they’ll still be around by the time everything goes back to “normal”. ⁠
See if you can order online, if they deliver or have a take-out option. You can also buy a gift card to spend later.Β  Let them know that you care!⁠ πŸ’š

Artists like me are also small business owners and we need your support as well. Selling my cards in shops is one of my main sources of income. Since most shops are now closed, that means no new card orders. Luckily my Etsy shop is still open as usual and one of the easiest way to support me right now is to place a small (or big!) order. I’ve also installed a donations button on my home page.

Also, if you want to share an artist’s work online: always clearly credit and never edit, and if you’re a company: ask permission first. Thank you! Stay healthy and take care!

Take Care! (Corona Virus Update)

2020 Take Care Corona Update Mangomini

Self Care Plan During Covid, In Drawings.

Self-care in times of Corona virus. This is an updated version of my autumn/winter self-care card, because the virus is forcing us to do certain things a little bit differently. (I’ve never washed my hands so often and also realised that I love touching my face!) This week I’ve been feeling quite worried and sad but I’m going to take my own illustrated advice and use the extra time inside for some quality ‘me-time’.⁠
Take care! ⁠β™₯β™₯β™₯β™₯

PS. If you find this self care drawing useful, take a look at my mental health plan version. I also have that one available on a postcard on Etsy.
