Celebrate Little Things, In Drawings.

Celebrate Whatever You Can!

The Holidays are over but there’s no reason to stop celebrating small things. It’s been a tough year and we should be kind to ourselves. You survived 2020: well done! Put on pants today? That’s awesome! Checked in on a friend? You deserve extra karma points for that! Feel like you didn’t do anything worth celebrating today? Remember you are still awesome and it’s okay and normal to feel bad sometimes!⁠ 💚 Hopefully this drawing can serve as a little positive reminder. It was one of my best nine for 2020 on Instagram, and I updated it a little bit for 2021.⁠

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.⁠💚💚

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!💚⁠ 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.

Celebrate Whatever!

Happy Today! I often use special days or fun holidays as inspiration for my drawings, but you really don’t need a special day or achievement to celebrate. At the moment even ordinary things can feel like a real challenge, like putting on pants or going to the supermarket. So today, be kind to yourself and celebrate the small things. It’s a day and you’re still awesome!⁠ (Even if it sometimes doesn’t feel like that.)⁠

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! ⁠♥♥♥♥

Stormy Weekend, Illustrated.

Stay Inside Weather, In Drawings.

What better way to spend a rainy and stormy day like today? The weather is the perfect excuse for a lazy weekend inside. Self care time, board games, cuddling up under a warm blanket with a book or movie and all of that with some nice snacks and drinks….sounds good to me! Happy Saturday! xx

Self Care Plan For 2020, In Drawings.

Take Care in the New Year, Illustrated Inspiration.

Take good care in 2020, of yourself and of those around you. Wishing everyone all the best for the new year ♥

I have this self care reminder card available on Etsy. It’s not so easy to always get all of the things on there right, I know this very well myself. But hopefully it can inspire you in some way, even if it’s just to do one good thing for yourself today. For me, it’s listening to Ben Howard on “eternal-shuffle-mode” at the moment.

Autumn Self Care Ideas
